Publisher's Summary

FBI Profiler Sean Kruger is back and on the trail of a vicious serial killer!

Over the Indian Ocean, a Malaysia Airline jumbo jet drops from radar. Three hundred and twenty-seven souls disappear with it; a woman in Rockford, Illinois is brutally murdered. Unrelated news events? Retired FBI agent Sean Kruger doesn't think so. He suspects it's the work of serial killer Randolph Bishop.

Now a college professor, Kruger has tried to live with the mistake he made while investigating Bishop six years earlier. It looks as though the only man to elude him, in his 25-year tenure with the FBI, has returned to seek vengeance on those who forced the man to flee the country. With his family in danger, Kruger comes out of retirement to find Bishop's trail. A trail that leads Sean to question his own humanity.

Randolph Bishop joins the ranks of fictional serial killers such as Hannibal Lecter, Patrick Bateman, and Anton Chigurh in this tale of revenge and justice. The Impostor's Trail will keep you up late into the night.

Still a fun ride

I discovered this series last year and tore through the first two books. It is a fun series in the vein of David Baldacci and similar authors. I definitely recommend it to a wide audience without many reservations. While there is some violence to be expected, it is not over the top and I could easily see this being a PG/PG-13 movie.
Paul J McSorley continues with a good read with his rich voice.

Wow, just wow!

This listen kept me on the edge of my seat from the very first chapter to the last. (I love it when that happens.) It's book three in a series but my first. I'm not sure how I missed the first two books but I won't miss another.

What a great character Sean Kruger is. He's all business, sorta ex-FBI, with a genius criminal mind. The bad guy was seriously deranged and quite frankly, too well-written. The match-up between Kruger and the bad guy, Randolph, played out like a horror movie. If you are a fan of Criminal Minds, you will love this listen.

The narrator nailed it!!! It has to be some genius-level narrating when you can create the positive persona that is Sean Kruger as well as the absolute ick-monster that was Randolph.

This was a really, really, really good listen but not for the faint of heart.

Unpredictable

This is the third book in this series that I have read and I have enjoyed it as much as the other two and although it is a series, each one could be read as a stand alone. Retired from the FBI, after his last case, and feeling a little bored and out of sorts with is current position teaching at a university, Sean Kruger is thrust back into his passion as an investigator by those who know well his capabilities. A Malaysian plane disappearing over the Indian Ocean and a psychotic serial killer that escaped Kruger 6 years ago become the focus of his investigation. Teaming up with JR, his computer expert from past cases, Kruger leaves his teaching and heads up a special investigative unit on special request by the president of the United States. JC Fields does an excellent job developing the plot and keeping you in suspense throughout the book, although sometimes a little unbelievable, probably possible, and definitely not predictable.

Another good installment

This series is definitely a good one. It’s been a trip watching a few of these characters progress from book to book. I can honestly say I’m excited for the next book. The narrator also did an amazing job with all the different voices and kept me captivated until the end.

Solid Kruger

Book 3 in the Kruger series maintains the momentum and intensity fans have come to expect. Added to the rush of the crime spree, Kruger is faced with conflicting emotions as to the direction his life will take. All in all, a great read/listen in the series.

Love all the characters.

What did you love best about The Imposter's Trail?

The fact it stuck with the story and just enough about the characters for me to care about them without it being to much info. Very fast paced. The villain is one for the history books. Calculating and ruthless. The narrator brought him alive.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bishop. The narrator brought him alive. I feared for every character that came across his path.

Have you listened to any of Paul J McSorley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first one I have ever heard. His voice is great.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A new serial killer has taken the stage.

Any additional comments?

I Loved it!

This book is full of twists and turns that I didn't see coming! I thought the narrator did a superb performance with the various characters and their accents. This book is a standalone listen and part of a series. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.
