On August 11, 2008, 18-year-old Marie reported that a masked man broke into her apartment near Seattle and raped her. Within days, the police swiftly pivoted and began investigating Marie. Confronted with inconsistencies in her story and the doubts of others, Marie broke down and said her story was a lie - a bid for attention. More than two years later, Colorado detectives pursued a serial rapist who photographed his victims, threatening to release the images online, and whose calculated steps to erase all physical evidence suggested he might be a soldier or a cop.

This book was incredibly well researched and put together in an addictive listening experience. Combining one woman's tragic handling by police with a valiant detective effort to catch a serial rapist, the great detail provided drew me in from the start. I actually spent a whole day listening because I couldn't stop. Highly recommended true crime story with great details, heart, wonderful narration, and great storytelling. If you like true crime I think this book will be one of the best you've ever read.
