Publisher's Summary

Marty Hogan was a good cop, until a shocking case sent her to the razor's edge....

A sadistic killer pushed Chicago cop Marty Hogan past her limits - and it was all caught on video. She lost her job, her sense of self, her entire world...until an open detective position in small-town Texas gave her a chance at redemption.

But she's about to learn that the past always catches up....

Police Chief Clay Settlemeyer knows all about mistakes and second chances - he's still earning his own, so he's willing to give Marty the opportunity to prove herself. But when her ex-partner is murdered, it looks like Chicago is coming to small-town Texas with a vengeance.

Very disappointing

I have and love all Linda’s “Kate Burkholder” stories. This book was a real let down. I felt as if I were listening to a romance book as opposed to a thriller. More of the story was spent detailing at great lengths sexual encounters than what was spent on the crime aspect of the story.

Annoying "breathy" reader

The story was predictable & the "dramatic" reading made it difficult for me to listen.

unlikable character

I got a couple of hours into this before deleting it. Not a single likable character, especially the protagonist. Ditch this woman, Linda!

HORRIBLE Narrator

I've always loved Linda Castillo books, especially the Kate Buckholder series. But this narrator is Horrible, with a capital H! She sounds as if she's auditioning for the damsel in distress role in a cheesy soap opera. Makes even the male characters sound whiny.

Please fire the narrator!

I can’t believe this was written by Linda Castillo. The overwrought performance certainly didn’t help. Where was the director and why wasn’t Ms Lee told to take it down a notch? Wish I could give no stars.

Boring

This book was so boring and story line was terrible. I loved the Kate Burkholder books but this was horrible.

Couldn't finish, narrator was terrible

I can't say if this is a good book or not. Within about 30 minutes I had to quit listening because the narrator was so bad.

conflicted

Decent narrator. Okay plot. Annoying main character. She's just a terrible cop, a hot head and she should have been fired.

Whiny narrator

Overall it had a great story, but the narrator had the whiny voice that was hard to take, it sounded like she was on the verge of crying through out the entire story.

More lust than mystery.

I love this author, but dislike Overkill. This should be labeled a lustful romance rather than mystery. I listened to the last 2 hours and quit. I have listened to more mostly angst over their lustfilled longings and VERY LITTLE MYSTERY. If you want a mystery, this not your book. If you want two love starved people longing and hot heat dialogue, then definitely listen to thid
