Publisher's Summary

Eve Singer needs death. With her career as a TV crime reporter flagging, she'll do anything to satisfy her ghoulish audience.

The killer needs death, too. He even advertises his macabre public performances, where he hopes to show the whole world the beauty of dying.

When he contacts Eve, she welcomes the chance to be first with the news from every gory scene. Until she realizes that the killer has two obsessions. One is public murder. And the other one is her.

Well enough written but nonsense, don't waste your time!

Alas another piece of nonsense about a crazy killer with lots of money, a crazy motivation and a fixation on a good looking woman. The poor guy just wasn't loved by his parents. There are a couple of extra bits and pieces thrown in to the mix for variety: a dementing parent; a black female body guard and a toy boy. All well and good but you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, can you?

Overacting!

Shame really as it’s a good story. The reader is trying too hard and the dialects are poor. Eve would not be speaking in a heavy, breathy whisper. Just normal would be fine.

Bauer-lite

Oh, dear. I really hate writing a glum review of a favoured author, but was so disappointed with this one; it seemed loaded with cliche, triteness, and the word ‘disparate’. Someone on Good Reads described it as Bauer-lite, and I would agree; having thoroughly enjoyed the Darklands trilogy and Rubbernecker, TBD did not compare well. I think it wasn’t helped by Andrew Wincott (The Archers, apparently) narrating in silly voices.

Not Bauer's best

I was disappointed by this one. It was all a bit silly and predictable, and not up to Bauer's usual standard.
I don't why, the main character being female, they chose a male narrator. He struggles with doing female voices, and reads the main character's as a sort of whisper, which makes her come across as daft and girlish, rather than as a hard-nosed reporter.
