Seeking women ages 18-32 to participate in a study on ethics and morality. Generous compensation. Anonymity guaranteed. When Jessica Farris signs up for a psychology study conducted by the mysterious Dr. Shields, she thinks all she’ll have to do is answer a few questions, collect her money, and leave. But as the questions grow more and more intense and invasive and the sessions become outings where Jess is told what to wear and how to act, she begins to feel as though Dr. Shields may know what she’s thinking...and what she’s hiding.

For 10 years something has gnawed at Isaiah Quintabe's gut and kept him up nights, boiling with anger and thoughts of revenge. Ten years ago, when Isaiah was just a boy, his brother was killed by an unknown assailant. The search for the killer sent Isaiah plunging into despair and nearly destroyed his life. Even with a flourishing career, a new dog, and near-iconic status as a PI in his hometown, East Long Beach, he has to begin the hunt again - or lose his mind.

I was a little baffled as I was listening to this why I got such high ratings. I was able to finish it so I did not return the book and I'm doing the reading instead. it was okay but it just didn't do that much for me compared to a lot of other books. I was hoping to find another series to listen to but I don't plan on it being this one

FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is closing in on a bust of a major criminal organization in San Francisco when he witnesses an undercover member of his team killed right in front of him on a busy street, an accident Roarke can't believe is coincidental. His suspicions put him on the trail of a mysterious young woman who appears to have been present at each scene of a years-long string of accidents and murders, and who may well be that most rare of killers: a female serial.

On a night flight from London to Boston, Ted Severson meets the stunning and mysterious Lily Kintner. Sharing one too many martinis, the strangers begin to play a game of truth, revealing very intimate details about themselves. Ted talks about his marriage that's going stale and his wife, Miranda, who he's sure is cheating on him. Ted and his wife were a mismatch from the start - he the rich businessman, she the artistic free spirit - a contrast that once inflamed their passion but has now become a cliché.

The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park's ice skating rink. The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher. As random as random can be. Eve Dallas has seen a lot of killers during her time with the NYPSD, but never one like this. After reviewing security videos, it becomes clear that the victims were killed by a sniper firing a tactical laser rifle, who could have been miles away when the trigger was pulled.

What made the experience of listening to Find Her the most enjoyable?

Haunting and just enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the end. I have listened to this series from time to time but this was first time I couldn't wait to hear more. this series and characters just don't have me wanting to know them and like them as jd Robb Dallas series. This one has been more about the crimes and victims. Not very fond of DD the leading detective character. I am glad I read reviews and purchased.

Have you listened to any of Kirsten Potter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes but really can't compare she gets 4🌟
Lora King and Susan Erickson get the 5🌟

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

I I loved the first gray man book and was excited too listen to More in the series. unfortunately I'm going to send this one back . Just could not finish this one it was too annoying. there's plenty of action and our hero does show he has Achilles heels. the main female character just does not work. there are things even little things that just don't add up so far in this book. I decided to quit about halfway thru. I'm not going to listen to the third .

I enjoyed Battles Quinn series, much more. I kept thinking it would get better and actually listened to 5 then quit refusing to finish this series. the narrator does an excellent job. you're interested in some of the characters however the story is nothing new and just keeps dragging on in short story.
