Ignorant of civilization and cautioned against its evils, nineteen-year-old Wren and her two sisters, Sage and Evie, were raised in off-the-grid isolation in a primitive cabin in upstate New York. When the youngest grows gravely ill, their mother leaves with the child to get help from a nearby town. And they never return. As months pass, hope vanishes. Supplies are low. Livestock are dying. A brutal winter is bearing down. Then comes the stranger. He claims to be looking for the girls’ mother, and he’s not leaving without them.

Months after discovering the mastermind behind her own kidnapping, Detective Jude Fontaine is dealing with the past the only way she knows how: by returning to every dark corner of it. But it’s a new, escalating series of mass slayings that has become her latest obsession at Homicide. At first, Jude and her partner, Detective Uriah Ashby, can see no pattern to the seemingly random methods, the crime scenes, or the victims - until they’re approached by a brilliantly compulsive math professor.

I really like the main characters and I enjoy learning more about them. The pacing is well done so the story really moves along. The narrators voice is perfect I listened all day long. If you’ve read the first one you won’t be disappointed in this one.

I’ve never listened to a play before. A one woman play that draws you in. Carey Mulligan is a terrific actress,she gives life to this woman. This kind of thing is real and does happen in our Society. Please give this a listen it’s worth the time.

The second, riveting novel from Bram Stoker Award-winner Jack Ketchum, Hide and Seek is a book about games. Reckless, dangerous games. Games you might even want to play yourself if you're with the right people. But shouldn't. Not ever… In a small Maine town, a group of thrill seeking college kids finds a game of hide and seek in an abandoned house turning into a reality of stark terror.

Seem like two different books,a romance and a scary thriller at first The narrator did such a terrific job I kept listening. I’m glad I did it’s a great story. Mr Ketchum blends the two and I cared about the characters. I would recommend this audible.

She doesn't remember that night. But she will never be the same. One moment, Dahlia is a successful Harvard student; the next, she wakes up from a party, the victim of a brutal assault. Her life veers into a tailspin, and what's worse - her memory of the attack has been ripped away, leaving a cold rage in its wake. Now, years later, Dahlia is a tattooed paralegal suffering from PTSD and still haunted by that night. Until one day, a video surfaces online, and Dahlia sees her attack for the first time. Now she knows what happened to her. And she knows who is to blame.

It’s one of those stores that gets better and better as it goes on. The main character is so believable and so are the other characters. I wanted to finish the storyline but didn’t want the book to end. Excellent mystery. I hope she writes a follow up book. I want to know more about these people.

An 11-year-old boy's violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City's most popular citizens. He is Terry Maitland, Little League coach, English teacher, husband, and father of two girls. Detective Ralph Anderson, whose son Maitland once coached, orders a quick and very public arrest. Maitland has an alibi, but Anderson and the district attorney soon add DNA evidence to go with the fingerprints and witnesses. Their case seems ironclad.

The story is very weird and very drawn out if reading I would have skipped to the end. The narration is more like listening to a movie instead of being read to. That’s why I stuck with it. I’m glad I did.
