Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Eric Rickstad delivers the electrifying sequel to The Silent Girls and features once again detectives Frank Rath and Sonja Test as they track a depraved killer through rural Vermont.

Every murder tells a story. Some stories never end....

In a remote Northern Vermont town, college student Rachel Rath is being watched. She can feel the stranger's eyes on her, relentless and possessive. And she's sure the man watching her is the same man who killed her mother and father years ago: Ned Preacher, a serial rapist and murderer who gamed the system to get a light sentence. Now he's free.

Detective Frank Rath adopted Rachel, his niece, after the shocking murder of her parents when she was a baby. Ever since, Rath's tried to protect her from the true story of her parents' deaths. But now Preacher is calling Rath to torment him. He's threatening Rachel and plotting cruelties for her, of the flesh and of the mind. When other girls are found brutally murdered and a woman goes missing, Rath and Detective Sonja Test must untangle the threads that tie these new crimes and some long-ago nightmares together. Soon they will learn that the truth is more perverse than anyone could guess, rife with secrets, cruel desires, and warped, deadly loyalty.

Mesmerizing, startling, and intricately plotted, The Names of Dead Girls builds relentlessly on its spellbinding premise, luring listeners into its dark and macabre mystery, right to its shocking end.

Meh

I really hated narrator. Hated. The intonation of the narrator's sentences; how his volume dropped off at the end of every sentence even though not every sentence is *that* thrilling was incredibly obnoxious. I like the story. The author's descriptions are sometimes grotesque, but overall I enjoyed it.
