Publisher's Summary

A killer’s mind is her playground.

Three Chicago women have been found strangled, embalmed, and posed as if still alive. Doubting the findings of the local PD’s profiler, the FBI calls on forensic psychologist Zoe Bentley to investigate.

Zoe quickly gets off on the wrong foot with her new partner, Special Agent Tatum Gray. Zoe’s a hunter, intense and focused; Tatum’s a smug maverick with little respect for the rules. Together, they must descend into a serial killer’s psyche and untangle his twisted fantasies, or more women will die. But when the contents of three inconspicuous envelopes reveal a chilling connection to gruesome murders from Zoe’s childhood, suddenly the hunter becomes the hunted.

Hooked me from the beginning...

I was so glad to see this book as a kindle first pick so I was able to purchase the audiobook for $1.99. Honestly, I would have paid a credit for it regardless, this book is that good. I listened to Mike Omer's Glenmore Park mystery series and he instantly became an author I watch for.
This book has similarities to to his previous series. A police/FBI procedural with the protagonist having a younger sister who needs protecting and a deranged serial killer who initially appears very innocuous.
The story is told from different points of view including the killer's. You don't get to find out the why until almost the end.
Brittany Pressley does a great job narrating. She does speak kind of slow so I had to listen with the narration speed increased.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

This was so good! 5 stars!!

First time I've read this author and let me say it wouldn't be my last! I loved this book! Finished it in one day as I couldn't stop listening to it! Loved the character's and the narrator was fantastic! Great story line...and I have to say there was some humor in it as well....which I don't think is often said to describe this type of genre....but it was so good. Can't wait for book #2....and in the mean time I will definitely check out his other books! Best audio of the summer!

Made worse by one lame FBI Agent

How can anyone respect an FBI agent who can't tell the difference between his own cat or a prowler? I mean.. seriously? He then loses me even more by requesting that Zoe come join him in an investigation.. but then quickly proceeds (in so many words) to tell her that her profiling skills are basically useless. I think that whole scenario was all about manufacturing the oh-so-lame tension between these two in order to facilitate grudging respect and eventually (gasp!) ...a blooming romance. No cliche here.. The book is not all bad though.. I liked the grandfather a lot, even if he is a bit over-done, and there is some pretty clever dialog. The narration was excellent but that's not enough to overcome the shortcomings, so this will probably be my first and last book in this series.

Um ya lost me at Chapter 35...

Wow. Come on.
For those of you who decide to read this book you’ll understand what I mean. BBQ sauce??? I’m really really annoyed.

Up until this point I liked it. After brainless chapter 35 I had to stop.

Excellent

Excellent gripping story that will keep you guessing til the last page with a shocking ending that make you want more. Zoe is a very complicated character but she is smart and brave. A forensic psychologist, a serial killer profiler that will take you inside A killer's mind. I definitely recommend it.

Great

The book was great, tense, fast paced, easy to follow. Predictable to the way it makes you feel smart, but fresh and full off unexpected turns that keeps you interested. One of the best crime/detectives i read/listened in quite some time.

a good read.

a good read overall. However, it is slightly macabre and unsettling entering the killers mind.
