Publisher's Summary

One rainy night in New York City, law student Chloe Larson is savagely violated in her own bedroom. It is a nightmare crime for which no one is brought to justice. Twelve years later, she is working in the Miami Dade State Attorney's Office while a vicious serial killer, nicknamed Cupid, terrorizes Florida. When the police capture the man they think is responsible, it is Chloe's task to prosecute the suspect. But she soon realizes that this case will be far from easy - because a dark nightmare from her past is about to be awakened.

Would've preferred unabridged version.

There's a lot packed into this abridged version and I can't help feeling ripped off that I didn't get the entire story. I didn't know the characters as well as I should.
Despite that it's a gripping yarn with the romance as important as the crime mystery.

One word of warning......The crime scenes are graphic and frankly creative. Not for the faint hearted.

Now I'm off to find another Jilliane hoffman book.

Abriged Version To Short!!!

Excellent story but the abridged version left out to much of the storyline...hope it will be released in the unabridged version..all that being said the book version is much better as the storyline is much more developed but overall still worth the credit! The narrator did an excellent job! She was pleasent to listen to.

Had to keep listening

I really enjoyed this book and got really involved in the story. It was well read, with clear characters and easy to follow speed. The plot was gripping and I ended up listening to the whole thing in a day as I wanted to know 'what happened next...' I look forward to more from this author!
