Publisher's Summary

*Winner of a 2017 AudioFile Earphones Award*

"Suspense at a breakneck pace. Delaine demonstrates her talents as a narrator through realistic portrayals of a dizzying cast of male and female characters, both criminals and cops." — AudioFile Magazine

When she's called to the murder scene, the last thing San Francisco Homicide detective Valerie Hart is expecting is for Katherine Glass to walk back into her life. Six years earlier, revulsion and fascination had gripped the nation in equal measure, as beautiful, intelligent, charming—and utterly evil—Katherine Glass had been convicted on six counts of Murder One. But the freshly-mutilated corpse in the ground-floor apartment bears all the hallmarks of Katherine's victims. And then there's the note, with its chilling implications. Addressed to Valerie.

To stop the slaughter, Valerie has no choice. She must ask Katherine Glass to help her decipher the killer's twisted message. But that means re-entering the pitch-black labyrinth that is Katherine's mind, and this time Valerie isn't so sure which one of them will survive.

Give me a break!!!

I loved the first book - but this 2nd book just irritated me to distraction. The unnecessary sexual deprivation descriptions - going on and on as if we cannot completely understand unless it takes u a whole chapter.

The long drawn out monologue of the psychopath Katherine Glass - OH MY GOD - and it could have been intentional - but I cannot listen to someone go on and on...and on and on....about themselves, especially the need to describe their childhood mast urbanization practices, again, for an entire chapter, droning on and on. (Note my run-on sentence - the book is FULL OF THEM).

The dialogue was painful, I kept waiting for it to get better, to become intelligent - but with only 5-hrs remaining I GIVE UP!!! And, Saul Black is so very obviously intelligent - so why go down this road??

Not sure I will attempt another Saul Black book after this.

Narrator is excellent!

So greatly diabolical!

I absolutely adored Kathryn the brilliant murderous psychopath. I would love to see this made into a film! The narrator is outstanding. What a fun ride!
