Publisher's Summary

2019 Kindle Book Award semifinalist (mystery/thriller)

The CLUE Book Award for Suspense & Thriller Fiction (long list - Chanticleer Book Review)

A mob boss is eaten alive by tigers at the Bronx Zoo. A New Jersey factory owner is mutilated and left to bleed out under a Manhattan highway. A French pharmaceutical baron is tortured and frozen to death in Little Italy. A high society fashion designer is poisoned in her Upper East Side apartment. Four months, four unsolved murders. Each carried out on the last Saturday night of the month. 

The victims share no similar traits, have no connections to each other, have no common enemies, and were each killed in very different ways. NYPD detectives Mike Stoneman and Jason Dickson pick up the trail based on the coincidental timing of the unsolved murders. 

Could these assassinations really be the work of a single serial killer? Why would a single killer choose such strange and disparate methods? Why spread your victims across all of New York? And most importantly, how do you track down someone with no discernible pattern?

Each new murder adds a piece to the killer’s jigsaw puzzle, but even unraveling the clues and finding the killer’s pattern may not be enough to catch him. Mike and Jason bring in help from FBI profiler Angela Manning, and together, they start to close in. 

But will they be able to stop the elusive killer before he completes his decathlon of death? Each month is a race against the calendar. On the last Saturday of the month, there will be blood.

First time for everything...

With over 600 audiobooks in my library, this is the first time I couldn’t force myself to finish a book. This is also the first time I’ve ever felt compelled to write a full review. Narration, characters, story - all just bad.

HIRE A NARRATOR

The author made a mistake when he decided to narrate this himself. If you can get past the fact none of the characters sound like who you would perceive in your mind’s eye, everything sounds as though it’s performed inside a steel drum and the annoying fact of the narrator’s need to enunciate every letter in every word, making all characters sound like digitized robots, you’ll enjoy the story.

the narrator drove me away from the book of

the story was interesting and I can understand the author would feel proprietary. he should have invested in Scott brick or Edward ballerini. it seemed like he didn't want to speak in a regular voice but clipped every word to make sure it was clear and concise. in a word, although the story was interesting I couldn't take anymore.

AWFUL NARRATION

I’ve listened to hundreds of audiobooks. This one has, by far the worst narration. It sounds as if it is coming from a computer with a bad connection. Very hard to listen to. The writing style is stilted, most of the the dialogue cartoonish. For those who like police procedurals, the technical details if the story, far fetched as it is, are quite interesting. It is a worth while story but I recommend that you read it in print.

Very Nice

Detective Mike Stoneman and his partner Jason Dickson have picked up on a pattern of deaths that have been happening in the city. On the last Saturday of every month, a person who hasn't led the best life is found dead in a bizarre way. From being poisoned to being eaten by an animal at the zoo. With no pattern or motive evident, they find it hard to prove anything that will give them cause to put aside the rest of their cases and dig deeper into the case. They don't even have anything that can link them together. While I really enjoyed this book, I wouldn't have considered it a favorite. I feel like the characters were a bit choppy and robotic at times. There were moments that the characters show some character, but not really all that often. The thing that kept me reading was that it was like reading an episode of Criminal Minds. Especially during the parts where it's in the killer's point of view. I really think this is a pretty decent book. Most of the things I didn't like about it are personal issues. It isn't reflecting on the book itself. The book was narrated by the author himself. I'm not going to say he was a horrible narrator. He did have a very nice narrating voice. It's just there are times he comes off really choppy. If I didn't know that he had written the book before listening, I wouldn't have believed it. It just feels like he detached himself as being the author. Again, he wasn't horrible. I just feel like maybe he should have tried to narrate it again with a bit more of an upbeat or rusky tone. This was a really decent book. I really enjoyed reading it. I wouldn't consider it a favorite, and I most likely won't be reading it again. I do recommend it to anybody who likes crime stories and shows like Criminal Minds. I did feel like it was watching a more low key episode of Criminal Minds. I think that's most of the reason why I really enjoyed it. I think the biggest reason I couldn't was the inconsistent behaviors of the detectives and their horrible attitudes!
