In the dead of winter, handwriting expert Claudia Rose journeys to Maine to retrieve a manuscript about convicted female serial killer, Roxanne Becker. The manuscript, written by Professor Madeleine Maynard, who was, herself, brutally murdered, exposes a shocking secret: explosive research about a group of mentally unstable grad students selected for a special project and dubbed “Maynard’s Maniacs”. Was Madeleine conducting research that was at best, unprofessional - and at worst, downright harmful and potentially dangerous? Could that unorthodox research have turned deadly?

"Written Off" is a book I listened to when I started exercising. Every day I would walk further because I wanted to know what Claudia Rose had gotten herself into from one moment to the next. It was just too difficult to stop listening, so on I walked. There were times the depth of the storyline, regarding a female serial killer, named Roxie made me gasp or even tear up because her interview and background were jaw dropping.
The descriptions about the characters and their handwritings were specific, and fascinating, very detailed. Throughout the entire story I tried to guess which direction it would take, and I was surprised every time.
Sheila Lowe's ability to pull the reader right into Claudia's adventures makes me absolutely certain I will be buying her next audiobook, ASAP. It must be said, Lowe knows how to tell one heck of an engrossing story.
