Publisher's Summary

It takes a survivor to know a madman. When the police need to crawl inside the mind of a monster, they call Caroline.

As a child, Caroline was abducted along with her twin sister. For over a year, their captor forced them to play his sick games, using their hunger to test the lengths they’d go to survive.

Caroline escaped. Her sister didn’t.

Now a young woman gnawed by survivor’s guilt, Caroline’s horrific past has left her with a unique gift to understand the twisted motivations of serial killers. She couldn’t save her sister-but she can at least help the police keep other girls safe.

But there’s something different about her latest case.

Something familiar.

Teenage girls are being murdered, their organs removed. As the scope of horror widens, Caroline begins to experience blackouts of lost time and disturbing hallucinations that are leading her to one terrible, impossible conclusion.

Caroline is a keeper of secrets. She knows her captor can’t be responsible.

Yet a message is being sent...a buried echo resurfacing...a personal connection of a dark and dangerous appetite.

Captivating

Wow, this book is amazing!! Sick and twisted, and truly a story that will keep you thinking,
Caroline endured something no human should have to endure. She not only survived, but has the ability to think like a serial killer. This makes her the perfect profiler.

This is the first physiological thriller I have listened to, and it is awesome. The narrator did an amazing job with the voices. I really enjoyed this story!

Intense!

Eerie and twisted.

This was a murder mystery with a paranormal edge. When she was a child, Caroline and her twin were abducted and tortured. Years later, Caroline is called in to help with what appears to be a series of cannibalistic murders. Caroline is no ordinary survivor, her experience gave her a unique ability to connect to the murderer, so much so that she begins to suspect there’s darkness in herself. Darkness she never knew existed.

This was a great suspense novel that kept me guessing right up until the end. This books shows that the monster you don’t know is much easier to identify than the one that you do.

The narration perfectly matched the tone of the story.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Good mystery

Green weaves a murder mystery around girls from a prep school who have been murdered and believed to have been devoured. I was kept guessing who the true killer was for most of the book.

Marlowe delivers a great narration that adds to the suspense and power of the story.

Confusing at first

I listen to audio books in the car, so I have to pay attention to traffic first. I had a tough time following this book to begin with, becausebit kept switching between current time and memories. As the book went on, the transitions became smoother and it turned into a good story. There were a couple mispronounced words by the narrator, which detracted from the story, but overall it was good.

Narration ruined the whole story!

The story was confusing enough. The narration was so distracting, it was difficult to follow the story line. This narrator needs some diction lessons. She speaks like a child in her pronunciations. What a waste! I want my credit back.

It's pronounced 'buh tn' not 'buh-en'

Unlike other reviewers, I didn't mind the narrator droppin' the g while she's readin' the book; the story takes place in the south so no biggie. I do very much mind the lazy and annoying pronunciation of "cer-en" words like "written." Dear Miss Marlowe, the T is not silent and thus we don't say "wri--en" or "frigh--end." I might have thought it was all part of the southern patois but the title page was read this way also.

As for the story, I don't mind gruesome but this one tried too hard to shock. Also, the narrative swung so madly between the present, past, and hallucinations that I felt a little whiplashed. Kind of wish I'd returned it but it kept me somewhat entertained while gardening.
