The Killing Edge | [Heather Graham]

The Killing Edge

Chloe Marin was lucky. She was just a teenager when a party at a Florida beachside mansion turned into a savage killing spree and she was one of the few to survive. Bloody handwriting on the walls pointed to a cult whose rituals included human sacrifice. Chloe’s sketch of one of the killers linked two dead cult members found in the Everglades to the massacre, closing the case as far as the cops are concerned.

Publisher's Summary

Chloe Marin was lucky. She was just a teenager when a party at a Florida beachside mansion turned into a savage killing spree and she was one of the few to survive. Bloody handwriting on the walls pointed to a cult whose rituals included human sacrifice. Chloe’s sketch of one of the killers linked two dead cult members found in the Everglades to the massacre, closing the case as far as the cops are concerned.

Ten years later, Chloe’s works as a psychologist specializing in art therapy to help traumatized victims, and on the side she finds release in her passion for the martial arts. Police who hire her as a consultant know she’s a literal kick-ass advocate for victims who can’t always speak for themselves.

The current disappearance of a young swimsuit model ranks low on the cops’ priority list. Everyone assumes the girl has run off for some fun in the sun, instead of getting ready for a photo shoot. Everyone but Chloe, who suspects a killer is using the modeling agency to stalk his prey. When the ghost of the model appears, asking Chloe for help, she knows that she has to do everything she can.

So does Luke Cane, a British ex-cop-turned-PI investigating the disappearance of the model on behalf of her father. Chloe and Luke have trouble trusting each other but they can’t help their strong attraction for each other. Luckily, they agree on the important things: someone needs to find those missing girls, and if a few laws have to get bent so lives can be saved, too bad.

When Chloe arrives late for an appointment at the modeling agency, she discovers a gruesome mass murder eerily similar to the one she witnessed a decade ago–and can’t help thinking that if she hadn’t run late she would have been there when the killer arrived. Ten years ago, she hadn’t been convinced the police had identified the real killers and now she’s sure of it. The same evil mind is behind the current murders, and she’s afraid she’s the target–and terrified that she won’t be able to cheat death a third time.

She has no choice now but to trust Luke on every level, because with a killer closing in, he’s the only one who’s willing to do whatever it takes to keep her alive.

    "As good to listen to as to read"

    I've read Heather Graham before; this was my first listen. Julia Whelan is an excellent narrator and she does a good job differentiating the characters.

    The Killing Edge is an enjoyable story with good flow and it makes for nice listening. I appreciated that there were not dozens of characters, which I find difficult to follow when reading and even more difficult to follow when listening. The story has a number of different angles that come together. I didn't predict the murderer so when the identity was revealed it was a surprise.

    Story
    "Good...WOW on the whodunnit!"
    What did you love best about The Killing Edge?

    The characters...Not only did Heather Graham do a tremendous job of throwing a ton of suspects out there, the narrator did a fabulous job of throwing red herrings right & left to keep you guessing.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chloe...she stays strong, even though she's been through hell and the world is in chaos around her...and she's strong for her friends, not just herself. And she can trust, and love, despite the many obstacles she's faced in her life.


    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    The red herrings! Thought she did an awesome job!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Hmmm...I'd have to say Chloe actually realizes she's surrounded by ghosts that have all been killed by the same man...and that they are relying on her to help stop him.


    Any additional comments?

    It wasn't a fabulous story, but it was a good, solid read & listen...and truly, there were so many possiblities for the who dunnit, all with strong ties it could have been any one. Kudos on keeping us guessing, Ms. Graham! And now I'll be looking up some of the New Orleans stories!

    "A Very Nice Whodunit!!"

    I really enjoyed this story. The prologue begins with the night of the murder. The first chapter begins 10 years later. This story revolves around murder for money. I had two suspects as to who the murderer was, and it was my first choice. The introduction of the paranormal was a steep step to take but totally plausible. This book is worth a credit and was very, very enjoyable.

    "Concept of the story is good"

    The concept behind the story was good, but the narrator was so bad it was hard to appreciate the story. She lacked the emotion that this book needed and that made the characters boring. I would really like to either read it or listen with another narrator and I think that would make all the difference.

    "Great read"

    I read this book because I like the author. This is one of her books that once you get into it you will never want to put it down. I suggest this book for anyone who likes creepy books that have a twist. This is not horror just mystery. I will admit that with the twists and turns of this book even I couldn't figure it out until the end.

    "good story"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book. I like all Heather Graham books! I listened every morning while walking dogs. Very enjoyable!


    If you’ve listened to books by Heather Graham before, how does this one compare?

    Not my favorite, but still good.


    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed the reader. Good voice.


    Could you see The Killing Edge being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Would definitely make a good movie. As long as they don't use the Twilight (Bella and Edward) actors! Ouch!

    "So freakin' boring!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It was so non descript. I can't even remember how it ended. However, I am not going to even try to re-listen to it. Narration was good but the book was bad.


    Was The Killing Edge worth the listening time?

    No. Julia Whelan did a good job but I will not 're-listen to it.

    "Your Average Mystery"

    An average mystery at best. I don't want to give it only 2 stars b/c I liked it and it progressed well, but it was not spectacular or a favorite by any means. I doubt that i will ever read it again - as i would like to re-read many other 3 star books, so perhaps it does not earn a full 3 stars either... So i am assigning it 2 stars knowing it was more of a 2.5* rating. The characters were well developed and sometimes i found myself telling them what to do or NOT to do - in a momement of suspense! I would have preferred that the author go into much more detail about the crime scenes, murders, and the possible killer's thoughts/ internal dialouge. Although pleasant, this type of story was just a little too mundane and boring for my tastes. Nothing special to recommend here.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "An Average Book"

    When Chloe Marin was a teenager, she and her friends were victims of brutal killers; some died, some survived. Fast forward ten years and Chloe is now a psychologist with a specialty in art therapy. Police hire her to be a victim advocate. Chloe is currently searching for a model who has gone missing. Some feel she has run off, but Chloe knows she is dead since the model's ghost appeared to her. Luke Cane also suspects foul play. He is a British ex-cop, now a private investigator going undercover as a marketing guru with a swimsuit company looking for models. The two of them are looking for the missing model.

    The suspense is ratcheted up when Chloe arrives late to the modeling agency and finds a massacre similar to that she experienced as a teen. She and Luke come to the conclusion that it must be the same killers of the teens so long ago.

    The story started out fast and furious with a tightly written scene focusing on the first mass murder of the teens. The story seemed to slow down with the first scenes set in the present. I found myself skipping or scanning much of the book. The chemistry between Luke and Chloe seemed forced rather than natural.
