Publisher's Summary

Deputy Coroner Clay Edison goes to extreme lengths for a forgotten Jane Doe in the new thriller from a father-son team of best-selling authors who write “brilliant, page-turning fiction” (Stephen King).

Clay Edison is busy. He’s solved a decades-old crime and redeemed an innocent man, earning himself a suspension in the process. Things are getting serious with his girlfriend. Plus his brother’s fresh out of prison, bringing with him a whole new set of complications.

Then the phone rings in the dead of night.

A wild party in a gentrifying East Bay neighborhood. A heated argument that spills into the street. Gunshots. Chaos.

For Clay and his fellow coroners, it’s the start of a long night and the first of many to come. The victims keep piling up. What begins as community tragedy soon becomes lurid fodder for social media.

Then the smoke clears and the real mystery emerges - one victim’s death doesn’t match the others. Brutalized and abandoned, stripped of ID, and left to die: She is Jane Doe, a human question mark. And it falls to Clay to give her a name and a voice.

Haunted by the cruelty of her death, he embarks upon a journey into the bizarre, entering a hidden world where innocence and perversity meet and mingle. There, his relentless pursuit of the truth opens the gateway to a dark and baffling past - and brings him right into the line of fire.

slow or maybe just not interesting.

I'm trying to finish it but just same old tired story so far. It doesn't sound like the main character is interested in the actions and so neither am I.

Wasted an audible credit

Lengthy, and painfully boring. Not typical Jonathan Kellerman. Add to that the monotone moderator and it was all I could do to pay attention. Very disappointing.

Disappointing

I’ve read every Jonathan Kellerman book and always enjoyed them. I read the first Jonathan/Jesse Kellerman Clay Aitken book and, while I didn’t love it, It was an okay read. I was expecting the same from this book, but it was dull and disappointing. The characters were So forgettable that I had a hard time keeping them straight. The brother storyline was boring and felt like it was there to use space. I don’t think I’ll be reading any future books in the Clay Aitken series. I gave the book an overall 2 star rating because Dennis Boutsikaris did a wonderful job.

Kellerman Bomb

Always look forward to Kellerman books coming out and have read them all, this was a stinker and is not worth your time! I am not a critical person, but had to disclose this!

Dull

Certainly not what I've come to expect from Jonathan Kellerman. I love the Lucas Davenport books but this character is uninspiring

Horrible

This was the worst Kellerman book I have ever read. If you like Alex Delaware, you will hate this.

Narrator Drones On

the poorest narration I ever heard!!!! One tone whether he's doing background versus a person. Same drone for every person. Really tough to knows whose talking.
