Suspenseful and exciting

Max Baxter is free, having escaped from prison. It's no coincidence then that three women have disappeared too. Is the sociopathic serial killer up to his old tricks? Of course he is. But this time the stakes are higher still, since Mr Ego himself has challenged the country's top Marshal to catch him before the women die. Aided by his brother Frank, Max is convinced he has everything under control, and there is no way that Marshal Jake Mathews can catch him. The two men have history - and only one of them can survive this encounter. Yet, he has seriously underestimated Jake, and not only him but the three women too. This is a fight to the end, with shocking twists at every turn. The story alternates between Jake and Max as each man battles with his own desire to survive: Jake, so that he can save the women, and Max, so that he can kill them. The women, too, are strong characters, brought to their knees at times, yet with such a desire to live that they find find an inner courage to keep going. Even Max's brother, Frank, realises that helping Max escape from prison had not been his best decision. Thrilling, tense and action-packed, the story is addictive, even more so because of the narrator, who has captured the essence of the suspense while not diminishing the emotional aspects the characters have to deal with.

Narrator a disappointment

I was very disappointed in the narration. The narrator's stress and intonation patterns became quite repetitive at times, and reduced the strengths of the story.
