Publisher's Summary

A notorious serial killer is back.

An edgy female police detective... An ambitious FBI special agent. Together, they are at the heart of the ticking-clock investigation for a psychopathic serial killer. The bond they forge in this crucible sets the stage for high-stakes suspense.

Detective Kara Quinn, on leave from the LAPD, is on an early morning jog in her hometown of Liberty Lake when she comes upon the body of a young nurse. The manner of death shows a pattern of highly controlled rage. Meanwhile in DC, FBI Special Agent Mathias Costa is staffing his newly minted Mobile Response Team. Word reaches Matt that the Liberty Lake murder fits the profile of the compulsive Triple Killer. It will be the first case for the MRT. This time, they have a chance to stop this zealous, if elusive, killer before he strikes again. But only if they can figure out who he is and where he is hiding before he disappears for another three years. The stakes are higher than ever before, because if they fail, one of their own will be next....

Great start to a new series

I'm a big fan of Allison Brennan's and if you like her previous books, you should enjoy this one, too.

The narrator is new to me and, while overall I think she did a fine job, I found her reading to be a bit flat at times.

Frustrating Read

The biggest problem with this book was the performance. The narrator was very poor. She spoke so fast I actually thought the narration speed was off. Each sentence rushed into the next with barely a breath between. The story was Ok but there was no warning (that I saw) that it was the first in a series. I HATE that device. And the narrator’s style made it even worse. It just stopped dead.

Horrendous narration!

I am only 4 hours into the story and if the plot were not so good I would have stopped listening after 5 minutes. I had to give narration 1 star to submit review but I feel it is not worthy of rating. The narration is horrible. Her voice is flat, there is little differentiation between characters and she can’t speak Spanish (one of the characters is bilingual). Not only that but she speaks so fast that I am listening to the story at .75 of normal speed. It is a shame because Allison Brennan’s stories are so good! PLEASE get a new narrator for the next book in the series.

Good plot.

The story is really well thought out, however I found it irritating when the main character kept breaking out in Spanish when irritated.

Performance

Too fast, lack of emotions and emphasis. Previous Allison’s novels was well read by Anna Marie Lee were much better.

Great story performed by not so great narrator

I agree with so many of the others who have posted reviews - great story, but they need a different performer reading. I struggle many times keeping up with the story because I wasn't sure who was say what because there was NO difference between the characters voices. Would love to see another in this series, but if it's the same performer I'll probably reach for a hard copy to read.

Get to the point?

The author seemed to add too many characters and extra side conversations that you don't really need to complete the story. You might as well get the abridged copy.

3 times the trouble

This is a well written story that keeps you entwined in what the police are doing and has you saying to yourself for them to hurry with their investigation so they can catch a serial killer. Edge of your seat tale. Looking forward to more Matt and kyra stories

Disappointed

I love Allison Brennan's work and have read them all. This was my least favorite. I found it hard to get through it and kept waiting to be intrigued.

Good story - Good action - terrible narration

If this story had a talented narrator it would have been a great experience - as it was I had to stop and re listen to numerous sections to grasp what had been said

The narrator seemed to want to get through the written words without much in the way of emotion

All in all it was an intriguing book
