Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Brenda Novak comes Face Off, the next installment of Dr. Evelyn Talbot and her murderous home for psychopaths. She vowed never to be a victim again. But now a killer has her in his sight....

Tortured and left for dead at 16, Evelyn Talbot turned her personal nightmare into her life’s work - studying the disturbing psychopathy of some of the world’s most vicious serial killers. Now a leading psychiatrist at Hanover House in a small Alaskan town, she tries to believe the past will never come back to haunt her - until a woman goes missing from a cabin nearby, and every clue points to the man who once brutalized her....

As her boyfriend, who is the area’s only police, begins to investigate - and finds not one but two bodies - Evelyn can’t forget that her would-be killer, Jasper Moore, was never caught. But there are no new faces in tiny Hilltop, no one who seems suspicious or potentially violent. In this twisted game of cat and mouse, Evelyn is certain of only one thing - Jasper must be hiding in plain sight. And if she can’t find him before he comes for her, she won’t be lucky enough to survive twice....

Huh....

I listened to all four books including the prequel. Narrator is great. No issues with the writing style and all that other jazz that gets reviewed. 3 stars because even after all the books, I just didn’t like the main character.
I realize she’s been traumatized and maybe that’s why I couldn’t relate because I have never experienced anything that horrific.
I thank God I haven’t.
But after four books, I found glimpses of a likable character but she was just blah.
Not even close to a heroine, I found her to have no backbone.
Anyway. The story was good enough to make it through four books, I hope you don’t pay full price for them.

Another great one. I have enjoyed this series

Another great one in the series. Not sure if this one was the last one. I liked that it could be it had great closure, but it was left open that another one could be written. I will definitely look forward to another if there is one is the series. I have really enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book. This one brings you full circle and seeing that some of the people got what they deserved was a plus. Def would recommend.

CAPTIVATING IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT!

I believe that the Evelyn Talbot series is my all time favorite of the hundreds of series in my library. There's a fourth book that doesn't seem to be available and I sincerely hope it becomes so very soon. This series is so gripping that it's extremely hard to do anything but listen. Brenda Novak has done an amazing job of detailing the depth of all her characters. And it absolutely go without saying that Therese Plummer is the perfect narrator for the series. She does an extraordinary job to say the least and she remains at the tip top of my "Favorite Narrator List".

It is my personal opinion that although this could be a stand alone novel, it shouldn't be. This series should be read in order of release to fully understand and enjoy the depth of the characters.

Riveting story!

This audio book kept me engrossed from the first chapter to the last! Book #3 in the Evelyn Talbot Chronicles, it could stand alone, but so much better when read as part of the series. The narrator was fantastic and kept me eager to listen longer than I should have. The last thirty minutes had me in shock, relief and satisfied. Looking forward to the next book in the series!
