Publisher's Summary

Work is a welcome refuge for New Orleans homicide detective Evangeline Theroux. Feeling suffocated by her new baby, in whose eyes she sees only her dead husband, she throws herself into a high-profile murder case.

Reclusive writer Lena Saunders offers Evangeline a provocative theory about the crime: it is the work of a lunatic vigilante. Lena spins the sordid story of Ruth and Rebecca Lemay, whose mother brutally murdered her male children in an insane effort to root out an “evil” gene. The girls survived and grew to adulthood - but one is carrying on her mother’s grisly work.

When the case takes a terrifyingly personal turn, Evangeline’s whole life will depend on a crucial, impossible choice: the lesser of two evils.

Twisty and fun read

This is the first audiobook I've listen to by Amanda Stevens. I decided to give it a try through the new Romance package Audible is offering. I will definitely listen to more books by this author.

Alicia Harding did a good job narrating. However, she talks entirely too slow. I probably wouldn't have finished the audiobook if there wasn't the narrator speed function. Once I increased the narration, I was instantly drawn into the story.

I love this author!

Very unique mystery with an aha moment! This is a story I will listen to again knowing what happens in the end. This author writes scary, nightmarish stories and I have listened to most all that is available on Audible and will likely listen to all. I have not been disappointed. The narration is okay to good but the stories are worth it.
