It's been seven years since the Seattle Strangler terrorized the city. His victims were all young, pretty, their lifeless bodies found wrapped in a home-sewn white dress. But there was one who miraculously escaped death, just before the Strangler disappeared. Lara Church has only hazy memories of her long-ago attack. What she does have is a home in Austin, a job, and a chance at a normal life at last. Then Texas Ranger James Beck arrives on her doorstep with shattering news: The Strangler is back....

It was a good story you think it is all solved and you know what happened when the author hits you with a twist which in the end you knew but had doubts about. What kind of killed it for me was the narration which felt rushed.

Okay first let me say I love the way Zoe Bentley is described eating food and how much she enjoys every bit. I just had to say that! it has been a while that I enjoyed all the characters in a book I rarely am one to give 5 but overall I like it. I did give the story a 4 because I did find myself wanting more about the present stroy when boom it change to the past or the opposite happen but inorder for this story to work it needed the back and forth between stories. I could not stop listening and at times I found myself screaming at the characters saying "what are you doing?" good read for sure
