Publisher's Summary

From New York Times bestselling author Mary Burton comes a gritty, suspenseful story in the Criminal Profiler series.

FBI special agent Zoe Spencer uses skeletal remains to recreate the faces of murder victims through sculpture. Though highly scientific, the process is also sensitive and intimate; she becomes attached to the individuals she identifies, desperate to find justice for each.

As Zoe examines old remains, she sees a teenage girl looking back at her - the victim in a cold case from over a decade ago. Zoe wants nothing more than to tell this young woman’s story and to bring her killer to justice.

Zoe’s case leads her to the victim’s hometown and to homicide detective William Vaughan, Zoe’s on-again, off-again lover. As the two become more involved in the case, they quickly realize that it isn’t as cold as they first believed: someone’s still out there hunting women. And with more women gone missing, time’s running out. Can they work together and stop this madman before he kills again?

FREE to borrow with Kindle Unlimited edition...

Very good procedural that kept me interested until the end.
The story begins when an anonymous tip leads an independent reporter to the skeletal remains of a woman who disappeared 18 years ago. This seems to be the catalyst to a string of new murders and a police/FBI investigation. The current murder victims all appear to physically resemble the the original victim. Then her sister is murdered and her daughter goes missing. There are a few suspects but I thought this part was a little predictable. I did guess who the killer was but kept thinking that was too easy and it must be someone more obscure. It is and isn’t because someone else was involved with one of the murders.
Bailey Carr does a very good job narrating.
Recommended light listening.

Great book

I am a fan of Mary Burton. I listened to this novel through Kindle Unlimited listen and read. I was glued to my Paperwhiite for the duration of this novel. It grabbed me from the onset and didn't let go. The story is scary believable and Bailey Carr's narration just make it that much more realistic. I would recommend this novel to anybody who enjoys a good crime thriller and the suspense and angst that accompany it. NO spoiler but it is a hot read.

Great Story but Too Explicit

The story is great. A lot of suspense that keeps you guessing. The character development is really good. But I did not like the explicit sexual scenes. I skipped right past them. It would have been perfect without them

Entertaining

I liked the story and the characters were interesting. I would have liked the story for 5 stars, I think, if reading. The narration was flat. The male characters all sounded similar and a bit overly dramatic, but I listened through to the end because I wanted to know who did it!

Story is great, but narration is terrible

I love Mary Burton, but this narrator is so distracting! The plot is excellent , though.

Love reading Mary Burton books..


Another good story from Mary Burton. There’s never a disappoint from her. Lots of murders and you have no idea who did it until the end.

And you can’t help but really like Zoe and Vaughn, the two main characters in the book. Zoe did spend some time missing her dead husband Jeff, while having sex with Vaughan, but she finally stopped that. Thanks heavens.

This was about the murder of women and trying to figure out who did it before another was killed. Then the killing of a wife and mother and knowing there was something being held back during questioning of the husband and daughter. It was all very exciting and had the reader trying to guess who did it.

There was explicit sex and the F-bomb was used 6 times.

As to the narration: I’ve never listened to Bailey Carr before, but she wasn’t half bad. She’ll need a little more excitement and more emotions when she reads but her men didn’t sound girly so that was something!

Good, not as good as the usual Mary Burton book

I’m not sure if I’m just too used to Burton’s writing style, or if she was unusually predictable this time, but I guessed the killer early on. It really took me out of the story and made it frustratingly predictable. It was still entertaining, but without a good twist like I’ve come to expect from Burton.

*spoilers* (I’ll try to avoid spoilers by not naming the killer or giving details, but if you read much of the book, you’ll likely know who I’m talking about.)

I spent most of the book waiting in increasing frustration for the protagonists to even consider this person as a killer. Yet even when Burton gave hint after hint and wrote that Zoe had noticed things off in the character’s behavior, the FBI profiler protagonist was unbelievably oblivious to the possibility that this person could be a killer. Just the protagonists discussing this person as a possible suspect and then dismissing them in favor of another character would have made the whole thing a little more believable, but that never happened.

Love Mary Burton...

But I struggled with staying focused to the end of this audio book and I think it was the narration. Sadly. I’m not usually critical but many of the voices were distracting.

Very disappointed...

I have listened to every Mary Burton book. I didn’t even hesitate on ‘I See You’.
Not only is this too graphic for me, but there is no other way of explaining the narration than this..Imagine listening to a 1940’s, thriller radio show. Now think of the worst actress you’ve seen act, but you can only hear her voice...that’s how Bailey Carr would be. Over acting, flat & terrible.

If you like this, and I didn’t..then read it!
“The sight of her naked frame awash in her own blood was a shot to his loins, and he was tempted to have another go at her. There was nothing better than (insert the F word) a woman in her own blood. He drew his fingertips over her pale leg, still warm to the touch. The darkness inside him, starved for too long, had finally turned ravenous. Insatiable. “I went for a long time without doing this, and then two of you in as many months.”....

Not for me. It wasn’t the type of Mary Burton book I expected and I couldn’t get past a couple of chapters with the narration whatsoever! I tried, but ‘I See You’
I do not recommend!

Not Her Best

I usually like Mary Burton’s books, but this one was weak. Weak plot with weaker ending. Disappointed. I had a hard time with the narration, particularly her interpretation of the men in the story.

Nope

I didnt get to much of the story, the narration ruined it. Overacted and totally overshadowed the story. I’ll be returning it.
