Silence is deadly.
The murder of 18-year-old Angie Vance was exceptionally vile - her mouth was sealed with glue, an obscenity scrawled was across her skin, and she was suffocated in a garbage bag. The killing seems personal, so police detective Carina Kincaid focuses her efforts on the victim's much older ex-boyfriend, Steve Thomas. But without physical evidence, Carina can't make a collar or a case. She also can't stop Sheriff Nick Thomas, the prime suspect's brother, from conducting his own unwelcome investigation.
Though Nick is still scarred and unsteady from a recent confrontation with a serial killer, he's determined to prove his brother's innocence. But his confidence is shaken when he learns of Steve's dark side, and when a friend of the murdered girl meets a similarly gruesome fate. With no time to lose, Carina and Nick work together to trap a psychopath, before another unlucky woman faces an unspeakable end.
Evil has spoken. Now see what it can do.

Good beginning of series.
I cannot wait for the rest of these books, I've read them and they only get better!
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
This book was well written and the story line good. It held my attention from the first and I was sorry when it was over.
My favorite series are In Death and Eve Duncan Forensics. I prefer to read about strong female protagonists involved in a good mystery.
The narrator is awful. He sounds as if he is a bad actor reading a script out loud. He also does a horrible female voice and it's creepy when he talks from Karina's perspective.
Freelance journalist, now living in Israel. Audible books listener for 30 years, when I had to pretend to be blind to get access.
A run of the mill bodice-buster wrapped in a crime story -- very formulaic, nothing new or unique about it, and not especially interesting. Not sure why I bought it, but I won't be looking for any more. Nothing especially bad about it, just nothing worth remembering, either. With so many great books out there (see the Linda Castillo series) you can give this one a pass.
This was an okay story, but somewhat predictable. If you're stuck in traffic, not a bad way to pass the time
I enjoy listening to audiobooks while woking in my shop or around the house -sort of mental multitasking.
I believe this person has read a lot of mystery-police novels and pieced together a plot typical for thousands of them based on what she had read. No imagination, nothing new. I didn't like the reader at all.
Nothing stands out in my mind to say what I liked best.The book was just another psycho killer story just like what is on TV every week. Nothing special or gripping.
Wait for the new season of Criminal Minds this fall.
I just wish there was a little more creativity in the story. It's almost like some of these books are fast food. It tastes pretty good while you are eating it, but after you are done you wonder why you ate it. Nothing special.
Bad dialogue with uninspired narration. Story-line was predictable but that alone doesn't ruin it for me but the cheesy dialogue is painful.
