Where is the ending of this story? In what was a very entertaining book as it was coming closer to the end and I'm seeing there is less than an hour left I'm wondering how they are going to be able to fit in the twist, the surprise, the unexpected...next thing you know its over.

Wow...very disappointed is all I can say.

The brutal murders of three young boys paralyze the citizens of Platte City, Nebraska. What's worse is the grim realization that the man recently executed for the crimes was a copycat. When Sheriff Nick Morrelli is called to the scene of another grisly murder, it becomes clear that the real predator is still at large, waiting to kill again.

Good Story, Poor Narration

I am wishing that I read this book and didn't listen to it. The story in itself was great. I can't say anything bad about Alex Kava. The narration on the the other hand was just terrible. As the book went on I found myself getting used to the reader's style, but in the first 1/2 I had to continually go back and re-listen to what was being read.

If I was Alex Kava, I would be very upset with the way my book comes off in this audio because it did not do the story justice at all.
