Publisher's Summary

Twenty-year-old Kendele Byers is savagely killed and buried in a shallow grave. She had a violent past, a bizarre, kinky line of work, and the suspect list grows longer every day.

But when another woman is murdered, Detective Mitchell Lonnie realizes that there's something much more sinister afoot: a connection between the two murders. Both victims had received a clue hinting at their oncoming demise several minutes before they were attacked. There's a serial killer in Glenmore Park. Even worse, he seems to be accelerating his murder pace.

Now Mitchell and his partner need to locate the killer before more innocent women die. But when his sister gets involved, Mitchell's focus begins to unravel. Soon his pursuit becomes personal, and the stakes rise very high.

The JK Rowling of police procedural / crime novels

Mike Omer is my new favorite author of police procedural / crime / serial killers novels. His writing style reminds me of JK Rowling with the suspense and the characters.

My favorite books have multiple perspectives just like Mike Omer, the killer, the cops, and the victims.

Also this has more of a current day feel with both the setting and the jokes.

I am now constantly trying to find new authors who remind me of Mike Omer.

Nice Plotting, Interesting mystery

I try to suspend disbelief and give the author plenty of rope to keep me guessing. But here Omer didn't need much suspension nor rope. This thing's a good listen and Eric Martin imagines plenty of motivation among the cast. Nice work, I'll buy more Omer.

Good book, wrong voice

I love the story headline in the murder mystery of this all but I like to hear more enthusiasm in The voice not a monotone it makes the story hard to listen to even though it's a good plot.

Just OK...slow start, predictable ending....

Just OK.....slow start with too many characters that really did not add anything to the story line.......About chapter 20, the main characters took over and the story line got interesting.....the ending was predictable.....again, just a OK listen.

Explosive

After a somewhat confusing start, this becomes an excellent thriller. Too many characters are thrown at you right in the beginning, so it takes a while to figure out who's who. Once the story really gets going tho, it's riveting and scary. I LOVE that Zoe Bentley is introduced here. In my opinion, she is Omer's best character.

2/3rds boring last 1/3 good

Boring for about the first 2/3rds. Not at all like the first two Zoey books which were interesting from the beginning. Last 1/3 good.

Another good series to keep up with!!!

I really enjoyed this book. It is a police procedural with a rather twisted antagonist. He sends beautiful women a text message on their cellphones with a picture of what he is going to kill them with, though not always a sinister item as one victim is run over with a car.
This book has all the makings for a good fast paced suspense. The strong detective, his not so strong partner and a younger sister who is trying to move up in in the department by acting as bait to trap a deranged killer.
This is my first Mike Omer book but it will not be my last! I can't wait to get the rest of this series.
Eric Martin does a super job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

This narrarator is NOT for me

I'm sure he's a nice human. However he does ZERO vocal modification for any of the chapters, characters, etc. I appreciate the skilled audible narrators who take on minor vocal adjustments to help anchor you within the story and each character. When you read EVERY SINGLE LINE exactly the same, the story becomes almost impossible to follow. Mike Omer is a pretty great writer. Eric has a nice voice that is easy to listen to, just needs to broaden vocal skills or consider reading just documentaries.
