If you could save a million lives by taking one...would you? When LAPD homicide detective Gabe Quinn investigates a series of ritualistic murders, it soon becomes clear that the killer is on a personal mission to bring him to his knees, luring him into a deadly game of cat and mouse, where the odds aren't stacked in his favor, and there can be only one winner.

Where does Killing Hope rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the first audio book I have listened to, so I guess that makes it the best.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot is full of twists and turns, Gabe Quinn is a great lead character, he is a flawed person, not some perfect super-cop like some books and movies have for their lead. You never know just what Gabe or the killer, will do next.

What does David Doersch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

David Doersch does a fantastic job of bringing the story and characters to life, he breaths personality into every one of the characters in the book in a way that can be hard to imagine if you are reading it yourself.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Although the book is a crime story, there were moments while I was listening that I found myself having a little chuckle at some of the lighter or funnier parts of the book.

Any additional comments?

Some of the reviewers of the book have complained that the book leaves loose ends, I don't mind that, I very much enjoyed the book, there is two more books in the series so far and I have read those, the loose ends are what leave way for the additional stories. Besides, since when does real life wrap everything up neatly with a bow at the end of a week or month?
If you enjoy a good mystery then this audio book is for you, it is a good mystery right up to the end, as it keeps you guessing.
