Publisher's Summary

A seaside retreat has just become a killer's favorite playground.

It's summer on the Jersey Shore. Children play on the beach. Husbands are off working in the city. And the surf echoes in the night. Here, in this perfect place, a serial killer has no worries in the world - except choosing the next victim.

Cam Hastings has come to Long Beach Island with her teenage daughter and the hope that maybe she can save her failed marriage. Cam has never stopped loving her husband, Mike, nor has she been able to outrun her flaws and demons - a vanished mother, a lost sister, and the ugly visions she has of missing children.

Now, Cam is about to step over the edge. For once, she will act on one of her visions - and then face the consequences. For a killer has just struck again. And for Cam, and the people she loves most, fear has come home for good.

Good New Series

Let me start off by saying that I did very much enjoy this book. But I knocked a star off because of some formatting choices that I think the editors/author thought would enhance the listening experience, for me it was just distracting.

There were multiple perspective shifts in each chapter but rarely were they delineated in any understandable way. Perhaps it was meant to keep the listeners on our toes but mostly it was just frustrating.

I enjoyed the fact that it wasn’t a classic detective thriller story and that the majority of the book was centered around Cam. I think the author did a fair job of creating realistic characters that stay true to what most people in their situations would think and feel. I appreciated how authentic each of their voices sounded.

I am looking forward to the next book.

Emily Sutton-Smith was really amazing with the delivery of the story. She is one of my favorite narrators and she did not disappoint with this story.

EXCELLENT STORY!!!

This story pulled me in from the very start and for me, it never had dead or slow segments anywhere in the story. That in itself was very unusual considering it's a great 12 hrs of listening. When I look at the series, it indicates that the second book isn't available BUT I purchased the first and second book at the same time so I have "Dead Before Dark" already in my library. That's the one thing that bugs me with Audible. When I look at the series, it doesn't show me owning the second book but when I search for the title, it pops up in my library. Very deceiving! Regardless, this is a talented author and her books in this series are well worth the credits.

I always enjoy Emily Sutton-Smith's narrating talents.

Good Book!

a really good book! It did go a bit all over the place, making it a little difficult to follow in parts. But still I enjoyed it.😁
