Publisher's Summary

Inside a maximum-security prison cell, Abby Maddox is serving 20 years for slashing Seattle PD officer Jerry Isaac's throat during the harrowing capture of her former lover, serial killer Ethan Wolfe. To the demented fans, lunatics, and creeps on the outside, she is a celebrity. But to Jerry, now a private investigator whose scarred neck and tortured speech are daily reminders of Abby's vicious attack, she alone may be the key to solving a new wave of murders. Because this killer has been sending her love letters, and carving a message on the victims' bodies: Free Abby Maddox.

With the help of intuitive criminology student Danny Mercy, Puget Sound State professor Sheila Tao, and seasoned detective Mike Torrance, Jerry must coax the shattering truth from isolated, dangerous Abby - before her number one fan takes another life in the name of a killer's perverted idea of justice.

Boring

I bought Jar of Hearts and really enjoyed it. I immediately downloaded another book by Jennifer Hiller and I could not get through the first few chapters. I did not like the book, or the narrator. I tried returning it less than 24 hours later and I was unable to. Very disapointing since I download up to 4 books a month.

Somewhat predictable

This is the only book I have listened to from Jennifer Hillier. I didn't listen to the first and found unless I wanted more of the back story to some of the characters I didn't need to. It stood on it's own. The book was entertaining and overall it kept my interest but it was somewhat predictable. I had figured out half way thru who was helping the killer achieve what she was trying to achieve. I found it somewhat irritating that the woman behind bars, 'Abby', was involved in several different relationships, with different sexes, who would virtually risk their jobs because of wanting to please her. So that had me at the 'oh geez' once or twice. The narrator is OK. She did her best to perform the book just found the male characters grating on my nerves but essentially I find most female narrators giving me that same reaction. Was good. I don't have any desire to listen to the first book tho. That might say something. So perhaps if you are looking to get into a series, you should start there.

Read both Creep and Freak! In order if you can!

If you are a fan of psychological thrillers...just read everything this author writes. You won't be sorry!!!!

Might not be able to finish this!

How could the performance have been better?

I just bought this and like the story line.

The narrator doing Jerry is soooooo irritating! A woman portraying a man with a throat/voice injury! I am trying to keep listening, I paid for it, I want to hear the story - hopefully his part gets smaller...

Very interesting listen, worth the credit

Story picked up from the first book but it can stand alone. The writer had you guessing. Bring on book three. Talmadge Ragan brought the story to life; she did an excellent job.

Freak (So, So)

I listened straight through, and even in the car. This book was ok, not as good as Creep which precedes this book. The narrator kept me interested, but I kind of figured out the plot. If this ends up on the free list, grab it. Other than that there was nothing spectacular about it.

Just Don’t

The narration is so so bad and the story was cheesy and very predictable. I got this because I loved Little Secrets and wanted to try another of Jennifer Hillier’s books but this did not compare.
