Publisher's Summary

From number-one best-selling mystery author Blake Pierce comes a new masterpiece of psychological suspense.

A bundle of audiobooks - Cause to Kill (audiobook one) and Cause to Run (audiobook two) - in Blake Pierce’s Avery Black Mystery series! This bundle offers audiobooks one and two in one convenient file.

In Cause to Kill, Homicide Detective Avery Black has been through hell. Once a top criminal defense attorney, she fell from grace when she managed to get a brilliant Harvard professor off - only to watch him kill again. She lost her husband and her daughter, and her life fell apart around her. Trying to redeem herself, Avery has turned to the other side of the law. 

Working her way up the ranks, she has reached homicide detective, to the scorn of her fellow officers, who still remember what she did and who will always hate her. Yet even they cannot deny Avery’s brilliant mind, and when a disturbing serial killer strikes fear into the heart of Boston, killing girls from elite colleges, it is Avery to whom they turn. It is Avery’s chance to prove herself, to finally find the redemption she craves. 

And yet, as she is soon to find out, Avery has come up against a killer as brilliant and daring as she.

In Cause to Run, a new serial killer is stalking Boston, killing his victims in bizarre ways, taunting the police with mysterious puzzles that reference the stars. As the stakes are upped and the pressure is on, the Boston Police Department is forced to call in its most brilliant - and most controversial - homicide detective: Avery Black. Avery, still reeling from her last case, finds herself up against a rival precinct and a brilliant, cunning killer who is always one step ahead of her. She is forced to enter his dark, twisted mind as he lays clues for his next killing.

Can’t get past British accent for Boston

I was trying to absorb the story and characters through the British accent but it became too much work to filter it out. I couldn’t get past the accent when the characters and location are so pivotal to Boston. I’m sad and disappointed because I think it is a good series and was looking forward to it. The narrator did a great job and I normally have no problem with the accent and usually enjoy it. But for this series based in Boston, it didn’t work

Ok

I feel like the storyline was shallow. Would have been more engaging if the details were fleshed out a little more. Also, while the narrator did a fine job - trying to wrap my head around Boston when the voice is English took something away from the experience for me.

Wrong narrator for this story.

Ms Wise would be perfect if the story was set in the UK, but as it is, her narration prevents you from really getting into the story.The Boston setting, language and characterization just don't work when read with an English accent.
