Publisher's Summary

Silence is deadly.

The murder of 18-year-old Angie Vance was exceptionally vile - her mouth was sealed with glue, an obscenity scrawled was across her skin, and she was suffocated in a garbage bag. The killing seems personal, so police detective Carina Kincaid focuses her efforts on the victim's much older ex-boyfriend, Steve Thomas. But without physical evidence, Carina can't make a collar or a case. She also can't stop Sheriff Nick Thomas, the prime suspect's brother, from conducting his own unwelcome investigation.

Though Nick is still scarred and unsteady from a recent confrontation with a serial killer, he's determined to prove his brother's innocence. But his confidence is shaken when he learns of Steve's dark side, and when a friend of the murdered girl meets a similarly gruesome fate. With no time to lose, Carina and Nick work together to trap a psychopath, before another unlucky woman faces an unspeakable end.

Evil has spoken. Now see what it can do.

Really Good Book

This book was well written and the story line good. It held my attention from the first and I was sorry when it was over.

Terrible narrator

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator is awful. He sounds as if he is a bad actor reading a script out loud. He also does a horrible female voice and it's creepy when he talks from Karina's perspective.

wonderful

I wish there were more books in this series. The relationships between the main characters and their internal struggles make this much more than a standard crime novel.

So-so, won't bother with any more.

A run of the mill bodice-buster wrapped in a crime story -- very formulaic, nothing new or unique about it, and not especially interesting. Not sure why I bought it, but I won't be looking for any more. Nothing especially bad about it, just nothing worth remembering, either. With so many great books out there (see the Linda Castillo series) you can give this one a pass.

Very Graphic

Did Tim Lundeen do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes, good performance.

Any additional comments?

This book is extremely graphic in its descriptions and telling of rape and murder from the eyes & mind of a sociopath. Unfortunately the book reads like a slut shaming textbook and it juxtaposed this graphic brutality with a budding romance, which I found to be somewhat disturbing. It was certainly a quick read, and it was entertaining. I definitely wanted to know when & how this killer would be caught. Overall I gave it three stars because I didn't dislike it, it was just a little much at times.

I really enjoyed the book! !

It is not a book for people who are looking for Romance only!! Some of the torture descriptions can be to real ! Me personally I like it, because it combines Murder an suspense with some Romance! !

Love the story - Hate the reader!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Maybe

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, the story was really good.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

It was a male reader who made all of the female characters sound like female impersonators!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No

If apology is offered, I'd accept!

This is a really weak story that was poorly performed and, in the end, quite forgettable! That is more than enough said.
