Publisher's Summary

The phone and the radio were dead, but they'd already heard the news: a mass murderer was on the loose. Hannah and her younger sister, Meg, were miles from the nearest neighbor, trapped in a raging blizzard, home alone. When two wounded, bleeding strangers show up, Hannah doesn't know whether to help them or turn them away.

Good Mystery with a Few Blemishes

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend it to someone who likes a good mystery. It is a classic who-dunnit. Two young sisters stranded at home (in the middle of nowhere) during a monster snowstorm have just heard that an psycopathic killer is on the loose. Two strangers appear at their door looking for refuge after a car accident. There are strange noises, things go missing, bodies turn up, the lights go out and the storm rages on. It definitely reminded me of Hitchcock.

The narration was good in that it was consistent and understandable. But it was way too cutesy for me. I realize the two main characters where teens but the voices were irritatingly juvenile. It made me think of Scooby-do and the story is not on that level. Luci Bell is a good narrator but her voice choices for the two main characters were off-putting. If you can get past that the story will hold your attention as you try to figure out who the murder is.

The only other minor negative is that story seems to stretch out a bit longer than necessary and got a little repetitive. Overall a 3.75.

Great characters added to the mystery and suspense

This was only my second Richie Tankersly Cusick audiobook, and I was not disappointed! It definitely had me guessing until the very end. the cliff hanging ending left me wanting more.
