Publisher's Summary

A serial killer is abducting, torturing, and murdering young women in a small community in central Maine. Seeming to select his victims at random, he acts out the rituals of the Spanish Inquisition before committing their bodies to the sacred waters of nearby Sebec Lake.

Anne Quinn, an investigator for the Piscataquis County sheriff's office, and Detective Douglas Bateman with the Major Crimes Unit of the Maine State Police join forces in tracking him down. Hiding in plain sight, the killer is clearly from the local community and plays a deadly "catch me if you can" game with Quinn and Bateman. He seems determined to humiliate them and demonstrate his superior intellect, leading them to suspect that perhaps there is a deeper motive and purpose behind his string of murders.

Great story - Horrible narration

Narrator doesn't change his voice at all, I felt like Ben Stein was reading to me. I will recommend the actual book and an ebook but not the Audible version.

This story would make a great movie!

Could have been better

Robotic narration detracted from story, which was actually pretty good. Didn't read the book, but stilted text may have been part of the problem. Normal conversation is not so precise, includes contractions.

Good sounding story overall

The story (what I could slog through of it) sounded like a good story. However the narrator/reader was closer to a text-to-speech reader than an actual voice talent. No inflections of any kind, like a 5th grade English teacher. I will have to read the book directly to see if the story is as good as it started out at a later date.
