Publisher's Summary

A schoolgirl found it on a nature hike. A severed human foot wearing pink nail polish. A gruesome but invaluable clue that leads forensic pathologist Birdy Waterman down a much darker trail - to a dangerous psychopath whose powers of persuasion seem to have no end.

Only by teaming up with sheriff's detective Kendall Stark can Birdy hope to even the odds in a deadly game. It's a fateful decision the killer wants them to make. And it's the only way Birdy and Kendall can find their way to a murderer who's ready to kill again....

A bit to juvenile

Mediocre can't see that it was written for adults maybe teens would enjoy it better . I also think it would be better narrated by a woman as most of the caricatures are women

Narrator....meh

Story was fine. The narrators inflections reminded me of a man who might have done radio mysteries back in 1930.
I would listed to how he voiced a line and I would think "come on! The (character) wouldn't have said it like that!

Schizophrenic

This book is so convoluted and makes so many twists and turns that make no sense to the story that the author must have been listening to voices I could not hear.

Horrible narration

It was so horribly painful to listen to I couldn't finish!
The voice and the cadence sounded like a robot. Siri could do better!

Not the best suspense...

I had to jump from 2.5 hrs left down to 56 minutes left. It was driving me nuts how this story would go off the rails. Wading through all the nonsense to get the story back on track seemed the right thing to do.
