All the characters were weak and none of them grew throughout the story. None of their stories, actions or relationships made me sympathize with any of them.

Then she discovers something more sinister—a vicious blackmailer who preys on young people and murders without hesitation. Making her work even harder is sexy firefighter David Hunter.

I haven't really enjoyed Karen Rose's books based in Chicago involving the Hunters and off-shoot characters. But once a few of them moved to Minneapolis, the characters seemed to improve and I found myself more caught up in the plot lines and the twists that came with them.

I struggled with this audio book. The narrator's voice annoyed me for starters. As well, I just couldn't get into any of the characters. I'm struggling to find the words to describe why they were so boring. Maybe the author was just redundant about describing their feelings and characteristics, but she kept them at arm's length and did not delve into any of them for me to really like or dislike.

I will never listen to another audiobook from this narrator. His voice characterisatons were juvenile, especially for women, which came off as condescending. It was like he was making fun of the women in this novel by overplaying them, so then rlthey came off looking weak and dumb. The story itself was just OK...but the characters were annoying because they were all full of self-pity. It was a frustrating listen.

Great suspenseful audibook...couldn't stop listening. Only critique is that there were almost too many storylines to follow, but it is the start of a series, so I'm guessing that's part of it. I've already downloaded the second book.
