Sam can hardly believe the offer. It all sounds too good to be true. And it is. It most certainly is. Make no mistake: the Hendersons are in big trouble. Their lives are about to be sliced open and placed under a microscope manned by a psychopath.
Crafted by a master of psychological suspense, comes a slightly twisted and wholly terrifying new thriller . . . a dizzying tale of sin and its dark consequences in the cat-and-mouse tradition of A Kiss Before Dying and Double Indemnity.
I did not think I would like this book at first. The reader does not have a voice that I like, so I was a little put off by that. I also found I was having a hard time finding a character that I could like. The wife is really the only person to relate to at all. Give this one a chance and you will be suprised by it. It did not take long for it to grab me and then I didn't want to put it down. I got my credit's worth on this book!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Caretaker to be better than the print version?
I loved this book (I only listened to audio and not print) better than any other thriller and I have read ALL the great thrillers from Patterxon, Deaver, Sanford,etc. This book made my pulse race, kept me up at night and kept me guessing till the end. I wish Simpson would write more but I haven't seen anything unless he has a pseudo.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Caretaker?
All of it but mostly that it kept me guessing all the way till the end
Which character – as performed by Dale Hull – was your favorite?
I liked them all
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Then ending was great!
Not riveting or suspenseful at all.
Bad choice of a narrator...One of the main characters is suppose to be a good-looking sexy man but the narrator makes the character sound like a 55 year old fat salesman in a polyester suit.
