Publisher's Summary

Charmer, liar, father...killer.

Suzanne's life changes forever the day she receives a visit from Rose Anderson, the woman who has been living with her estranged father, Don.

Don is dead, but Rose wants Suzanne to have his possessions - including a series of intimate diaries and a mysterious collection of photographs of women.

To Suzanne's shock, one of the photos is of her friend, Sophie, who died 10 years ago in an unexplained and devastating fire.

But Don met Sophie only once, during an unsettling visit he paid Suzanne just days before Sophie's death.... So why did he have a picture of her?

Unable to let Sophie's memory alone, Suzanne begins to dig into her father's life. What horrors is she about to unearth in his journals? And who is it that's out there, watching her every move?

Chilling, The Serial Killer's Daughter is a compelling thriller, perfect for fans of Robert Bryndza, Rachel Abbott, and Robert Dugoni.

Way way way too long - and nauseating

Because of the excellent narration, the first half of this book was interesting and although parts of it were painful to hear, I did listen. Then something suddenly happened. A different writer took over or the original writer became mentally ill, because both plot and writing descended into a morass of vulgar obscenity and extremely improbable twists and turns, and WENT ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON.....
You get the picture. Even vulgar obscenity and excruciatingly stomach-turning forensic details become boring if there is a never-ending stream of them. Sort of like the screaming in a Friday the 13th movie. Fast forwarding did not solve the problem. I gave up and returned it.

Sickening

This wasn’t what I was looking for in a book. I enjoy a good psychological thriller but this was too sadistic for me. I was prepared for a story about the daughter struggling to find identity away from her father but it was all about the ways her father killed for his sexual fantasies. I returned the book.

SUCH A GOOD BOOK

This book is amazing. A bit twisted but very well written and the narration is spot on. This book keeps you on your toes the whole time. I have already read it twice! Very amazing!

This was not worth whatever you paid for it

I rarely make negative comments but this was not a good book. It started out well - but devolved into almost pornagraphic hang wringing and unbelievable coincidences

A Long Story

As far as the story about Susan and her father's little of murders goes, I enjoyed the tale very much. However, I thought the book would never end. I felt there were more than a few points where the reader would have been happy to end Ray's adventure, but the author chose to continue with more verbiage.

Disappointed

The reviews of this book hyped it up to be something it wasn't. The narrator was good. The book was not.

dreadful.

I persevered to the end but this was one of the worst books I've listened to. The plot was all over the place and felt like something a teenager would write. It was even cringeworthy in places.

Gripping but dark

I enjoyed this book, it's well written, I found it gripping and the narrator was good apart from a few dodgy accents. The story is very dark a bit disturbing at times and if you're easily offended by bad language I'd give it a miss.

Didn't finish...

I purchased this based on reviews and honestly wished I hadn't bothered.

It started well but it seems the author couldn't decide whether they were writing an S and M or murder novel. Really far-fetched, full of holes, not for me... didn't finish.

brilliant

Gripping. No other words. Loved the characters and the narrator was so easy to listen to. There are some really tense & heart stopping moments, with some "Hell no! that didn't just happen!" bits that I loved.

Interesting but annoying narration

I enjoyed this book but found some of the narration (especially the male voices) very irritating and if there is a sequel I won't be purchasing it.
