Publisher's Summary

Following the death of her brother of an apparent suicide by overdose, Kali reconnects with her sister. To their dismay, they learn that he was the prime suspect in the double homicide of a wealthy heiress and a college coed. As if that weren't shocking enough, Kali also learns her brother might have ties to a young stripper's murder and the disappearance of a 16-year-old runaway. Kali must dig into the sinister underworld of the sex industry to find her brother's killer before the missing girl, or Kali herself, becomes the next victim.

better than expected

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. I really really liked this book. It had a kind of slow start, but it picked up eventually and kept right on going. There was a good plot that was easy to follow. I could almost see the story as if it were a movie in my head. The narrator did a good job telling the story. It was nice that the story took you along from the murders and all the way through the investigations and gave you two different perspectives (the detectives and the family of the victims). I liked how it ended. It tied up all the loose ends in the murders, it answered all the questions. It was a great read.

An engaging book of twists and turns

Kallie O'Brien's brother, John, ignores her calls to him and now wants her to call him back. When she talks to him briefly, she realizes he is drunk, and Kallie decides she will call him back the next day. Instead she receives a call from her sister Sabrina saying that is dead.

Kallie goes to work clearing his name, despite what the evidence looks like and what the detectives believe.

This is an engaging book with lots of twists and turns that keeps your attention.

Another Kali O'brien story

What made the experience of listening to The Next Victim the most enjoyable?

I love the author's writing style and the narrator's style they work well together and I seem to crawl in their books.

What does Cindy Piller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings the characters and you remember which character is which due to her authenticity.

Any additional comments?

I've listened to most of this author's books and I will always look forward to listening to one of her books. I like murder mysteries like the type she writes or the quirky women sleuths type books.

Great Plot, just enough twists, perfect book.

What did you love best about The Next Victim?

The characters were very believable. I love a story that you can really believe. This one, for me has everything that I love in a mystery.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I kept wondering if Kali was treading on dangerous ground...Sure enough she is.

Which character – as performed by Cindy Piller – was your favorite?

Each character is performed perfectly, their flaws and all brought to life. You can understand their conflicts, even as you hate the reasoning behind them. So human that it is almost like a true crime story. Narration was really good.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. When I had to put it down; I just couldn't wait to get back to it. There were so many interesting things going on with several of the main characters...And just had to find out finally, just who the culprit was.

The Next Victim


The Next Victim
: Jonnie Jacobs

This is the third title that I've listened to by this author, and so far my favorite. Kali O'Brien is out to prove her brother wasn't a murderer and his death wasn't an accident. She meets many people along the way. Twist after twist has the listener wondering not only who the murderer is, but also who is good and who isn't. I couldn't wait to find out who did it. I hope to get the next one soon.


The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed by Cindy Piller.
