Fantastic!

I absolutely loved this! The complex characters and intriguing storyline was fascinating.
Marina Barrett’s narration was perfect. It was easy to distinguish the characters and she really delivered the dark sinister tone of the Ripper.

I can’t recommend this enough.

A story with a twist are the ones I like best!

Amy keeps you guessing in this sequel to RIPPER. There is just as much drama as the first one, but this is brought on in a different way.

If you like a thrill, this is definitely for you.

I love Maria's voice for this one too, she did RIPPER justice and was just as amazing to listen to again!

Sinister Depiction

Marina's varied British accents allowed to follow the characters easily. Her portrayal of the Ripper with his inner dialogue was sinister and scary. It delved into the twisted and super intelligence of the killer. I felt so sorry for Jax. This book allowed closure for Jax and Marie.

Heartfelt emotional read

Marie's death brought Jax some links to her past to help him solve the murder. The Ripper is still on the loose, will he be caught? Amy Cecil delivers the goods with this heartfelt emotional read. Marina Barrrett is perfectly perfect as the narrator! Happy listening!

Great Conclusion!

The Mind of a Killer is the second book, and the suspenseful conclusion of the Ripper Duet. The story has twists and turns, and the mystery unfolds at a great pace. You have to listen to Ripper, the first book in the duet, before this one. Marina Barrett did an outstanding job with the narration. I love her voice. I highly recommend this duet. Looking forward to listen to more books written by Amy Cecil and narrated by Marina Barrett. I was given a free review copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Amazing ending to this series!!!

The Mind of a Killer is the conclusion to Ripper, which is the author rendition of the Jack the Ripper murders. It’s a shorter listen but gives us the answers to the questions that book one left us with. Definitely worth the listen if you want to be a part of solving some crimes 😉

Marina did a fabulous narrating, I could listen to her voice all day long!

Good Spinoff Sequel

This book was almost exactly what I thought it was going to be. I was surprised when I saw how short it was but honestly I'm glad the length is what it is. The pacing was done really well and not a lot of detail was concentrated on this book, which worked out perfectly. It was direct and straight to the point. This caused a very successful spin off. I am really glad we got this book as it provided some closure for Jackson. There were still just a couple of things that didn't quite push it to a 5 star. One was again, the setting. While this book felt a lot closer, it was still hard to imagine the surroundings and picture the scenes. There was also a very convenient character introduction that just seemed a little cliche. It did make me happy, because it gave Jackson what he needed but it seems awfully convenient. Other than that the story was good and it gave that little extra

Narration review (does not affect my rating of the story)
I understand why the same narrator was kept and she did a fantastic job with the first book, but I wish it would have been a different narrator. Marie is no longer telling this story and instead I wish a male narrator was used to tell Jackson's events in this book. Again, nothing against her as she did a fantastic job, I just felt like it would have made more sense to have a male narrator for this. I still really enjoyed this narration and would definitely recommend it.

The Ripper

I really enjoyed the conclusion to this story after book one left us with quite a shocker. While it is a short listen, I found myself just as enthralled by the story and eager for more. Marina Barrett did a wonderful job with this book. She had everything down perfectly from the pitch to the accents.

I found this to be quite a creative and entertaining portrayal of the true events. Well thought out and with stellar execution.

I enjoyed it

This book had me riveted and I could not put it down. The Mind of a Killer is the 2nd book in the Ripper series and continues right where "Ripper" left off. The story is told from Jax perspective with the killer's thoughts also included. With some twists and turns you won't expect, this novel will have you feverishly turning the pages to see how it all ends. This dark tale was twisted yet creative and I enjoyed Amy Cecil's take on this real life mystery.

The story was narrated by Marina Barrett who did an excellent job. Her voice perfectly suited the characters and she had excellent pace and timing. She really brought the story to life. It was a pleasure listening to her narrate this novel.

Secrets Revealed!

Jax is devasted by Marie’s death and he is determined to uncover the truth and ensure that the guilty party is punished. For this to happen he will have to review conflicting witness stories as well as learn more about her past which includes a secret or two that will change the course of his life.

Suspense, twists and intrigue as your heart will break for what both Jax and Marie endured but I enjoyed how it all unfolded. I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook and the performance of the narrator couldn’t have been a better match. 🎧 Audiobook Obsession

Thrilling suspense!

Thrills and chills, this book will keep you on the edge of your seat. The second book in this series, Cecil focuses on catching Jack the Ripper. Jackson is determined to get his revenge when the love of his life is taken by this serial killer. But will he be able to figure out who it is? Knowing he will be next, there is no time for mistakes, and he has to stay one step ahead! He has something to live for, and time is of the essence. What a thrilling story Cecil has written. Her take on the Ripper murders is fresh and entertaining. She takes us on a wild ride, inside the mind of of a serial killer and it's victims. Every minute is full of danger and suspense and is so worth the ride. I loved every minute!

Marina Barrett is so talented. Listening to her narrate this book is like watching a movie. She has incredible voices, great suspenseful timing and really makes the listen realistic. She gives a wonderful performance.

Great conclusion to the story well brought to life

oooo I am SO glad that this book has been written! I had so many questions at the end of the first and I didn't know of we would get the answers. We do! I can't say any more cos I'm full of spoilers, lol. I know it's a gruesome subject matter but I enjoyed how the story played out. Marina Barrett's narration adds that extra dimension that really makes the story zing. Brilliant.

Good for Jax!!!!

Jack the Ripper has murdered the woman Jax loves. Jax wants to be the one who finds him.... and kiss him!

Jax begins his search.... he’s convinced he can be the one to find the killer, and rid the world of him.

This book follows Jackson Kent (Jax) in his hunt for Jack the Ripper. There are many pieces of Marie’s life that are unearthed in this story! Some are aha moments and some are true surprises.

This was an excellent listen. Any Cecil did a great job with this and Marina Barrett’s voice and character talent are excellent!!!
