Publisher's Summary

"Absolutely gripping… blew me away… Words can’t describe how good this book is." (Heidi Lynn's Book Reviews)

The USA TODAY top 100 best-seller you won’t want to miss! 

The high chair lay on its side, a toy elephant and a crumpled green blanket scattered across the floor beside it.

“She had a baby? Is it-?”

“The baby’s gone.” 

When Detective Josie Quinn is called to a large house on the outskirts of the small town of Denton, she’s horrified by the viciousness of the attack - smashed glass, splintered furniture, and blood spattered across the floor. The owner, a single mother, is fighting for her life, and her newborn baby is missing. 

A beautiful young woman caught fleeing the scene is Josie’s only lead, but when questioned it seems this mysterious girl doesn’t know who she is, where she’s from or why she’s so terrified....

Is she a witness, a suspect, or the next victim?

As Josie digs deeper, a letter found hidden in the house convinces her the attack, the missing child, and the nameless woman are linked to a spate of killings across the county, and Josie is faced with a heart-breaking decision....

Should she risk the life of one child to save many others? Or can she find another way to stop this killer before any more innocent lives are taken?

Nail-biting, twisty, and impossible to put down. If you love gripping thrillers from Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni, and Rachel Caine, you’ll be absolutely hooked!

Critic Reviews

"Anyone who knows me gets that I really like a strong, female, kickass main character and that’s exactly what I got in Josie Quinn.... The plot motors along at breakneck speed often leaving me holding my breath. I’ll be waiting impatiently for the next instalment." (Angela Marsons, best-selling author of Silent Scream)

English

The story was very good. The narrator needs to learn the English language. She mispronounced words by dropping vowels and sometimes just mispronouncing them. It was annoying.

My Book Review

The story and details were great, but the narrator needs to learn to pronounce words correctly.And if she's using local colloquialisms, they absolutely need to be correct. I have lived in rural western PA for over 20 years, and my son went to camp near Emlenton, so I'm familiar with that area of the state.

Seeet Jesus, this narrator again

She pronounced “backhoe” “black hoe” and “custody” “custordy”. I love dessert as much as anyone else, but, being in jail in much different than enjoying dessert. Earth moving equipment is completely different than being a racist jerk. “Et” instead of “ate”, OB/GYN sounded out in syllables rather than the letters. No. That’s not how it’s done. Ffs. I cannot express in simple typeface how ignorant this person sounds. It’s. So. Bad.

However, the book is awesome. I like the writing. I just wish this narrator would not read all of the books.

The narrator is horrible

This narrator is so poor with her mispronouncations and absurd accents that it really detracts from the story. I find myself disliking the lead character because the narrator makes a sheriff sound whiny. there is a 3rd book in this series, I think I will read it instead.

Horrible Narration

The storyline was interesting but I had to flip to reading as much as possible. I cannot continue this series with the same distracting narration.

She cannot pronounce her words. Just a sampling (I started writing them down for kicks). The first word is her pronunciation, the second word is the actual word:



Halster holster
Bean Been
Eastrogen estrogen
Toosled tousled
Pratest protest
Enything anything
Linth length
Holf half
Figger figure
Scrawling scrolling
Enythin anything
Transfurred transferred
Arer area
Noaher Noah
Shawn shone
Ider idea
Lunch launch
Awthority authority
Cocky khaki
Et ate

The narrator almost became the story.

Distracting pronunciations - good characters

I started counting and negatively reacting to the narrator pronouncing “ate” as “et” and “anything” as “enah-thin” and “nineteen” as “niteen”. It distracted me from the content.

Great story if you can deal with the Narrator

These stories are great but the Narrators continual mispronunciation of words makes it seem like the character has a low intelligence level. It took me a while to realize it was the narrator mispronouncing words. Then she will later pronounce the same word correctly. They are not difficult words. Well known cities names, character names and Amazon. I thought books had producers who caught that stuff but apparently that is incorrect. However, the author writes excellent stories. I might have to go to regular books though. Now that I know the narrator is doing that it seems to bother me more and more every time she mispronounces basic words in the English language.

Horrible narrator!

Good story but really tough to listen to this narrator, who mispronounces many common words.

Narration was worse in this book than last one.

If I would have realized it was the same narrator i would have skipped the audible add on. She was even worse in this book and the story wasn't as strong. Words that aren't enunciated ands mispronounced in one sentence and not another. Very distracting...

Thoroughly enjoyable!

I was hooked from the start of the book. There are many twists and turns and a lot of characters involved to complete the story. I listened on Audible and the narration was very easy to follow. I look forward to reading the next book by this Author.
