Publisher's Summary

Malorie’s best friend is missing, but no one seems concerned about the wayward medical student's mysterious disappearance - until another student's partial remains wash ashore a Seattle beach....

When Malorie witnesses her best friend and roommate leave a campus bar with a mystery date driving a silver Mercedes, she suspects foul play, especially when Lani fails to return home the next day. Both women, med students in their final year at Elliott Bay University, have a lot riding on the line, but due to Lani’s wild past, no one in her family is worried. When Malorie’s fears for her roommate deepen, she turns to her Uncle Wade, a sergeant at Seattle Homicide. 

Within 48 hours after Lani goes missing, the partial remains of a brutally murdered young woman wash up on Alki Beach, and a human hand is found in a crab pot off Bainbridge Island. When one of the bodies is identified as a pregnant, fourth-year medical student, Wade believes there’s a connection with Lani’s disappearance. And, that they might be looking for a serial killer. 

Malorie suspects Lani’s kidnapper is someone they know, possibly even one of their professors at the university, a prominent Seattle anesthesiologist whose wife is the president of EBU. But when Detective Blake Stephenson discovers evidence that links another suspect to the professor’s Mercedes, he and Wade must act fast to attempt a wild rescue in the middle of Puget Sound.

Excellent

Once I started listening I couldn't stop. I stayed up all night so I could finish it. Very moving, emotionally charged story.

Both narrators did a wonderful job.

I received this audible free at my request. I'm happy to provide my honest review

You will become a hostage to this story

You will become a hostage to this story until the end, it is that good I didn't want to pause it for a second. I loved this book. I liked the suspense and spent the whole book trying to work out who the killer was. With plenty of clues I kept changing my mind and it is definitely a story you can listen to again. The characters were likeable and had you rooting for the good guys, I just hope the author plans to write about them a lot more.
When Malorie flighty room mate dumps her at a bar, she knows something is wrong. But Lani has pulled a disappearing act before and no body else is worried even when she fails to turn up for a big family event. Malorie turns to the one person she know she can always turn to her Uncle Wade. Despite his wife about to give birth the Seattle Homicide sergeant goes to the prescient to file a missing person case. Only to learn Lani isn't the only medical student to have gone missing and both girls had the same secret. A secret that only the killer knows about, that is until a body is found. Malorie tries to carry on with her every day life but everybody she use to call a friend begins to look like a suspect and someone doesn't want her or her Uncle looking to hard for the missing girl.
I liked the use of the male and female narrators it added another dimension to the story making it very easy to listen to and enjoyable.
I highly recommend this book.
