What a great plot! The character development offered the reader the inside thoughts and emotions of everyone in this book. I certainly enjoyed the female lead in this series, she is tough as kicking butt !! I enjoyed the mystery and intrigue in this book. It kept the reader completely baffled until the very end.
My new favorite author !


Highly recommend audio series !

In July 1972, Deputy Sheriff Gerard Schaefer picked up two teenage girls, Pamela Wells (17) and Nancy Trotter (18), who were hitchhiking to a local beach. He told them it was illegal to hitchhike in the area and that he would take them back to safety. He lied. Schaefer took them to a remote wooded area where he drew his gun, tied them up, gagged them, and looped nooses around their necks. Schaefer received a call on his police radio and had to leave the girls, but he vowed to return and finish what he’d started.

This was a very scary case , and I found it difficult to put the book down so I could go to sleep at night. On top of that I had a hard time making it thru the next day as I anticipated the next listening session. Amazing how this monster avoided detection for so long and fooled so many, truly sad how mental health has been viewed in the past and how so many have not been fully diagnosed to avoid the horrific crimes as this ..
The narration brought this story vividly to the forefront of the mind.

If you like true crime this is a must listen..!
