Publisher's Summary

As a medical examiner, Serena Hopkins is used to dealing with death. But that doesn't make it any easier when she's called to the eerie scene of a murder - especially when Serena realizes that she knows the victim. Nearly as unnerving is the presence of FBI agent Dominic Allen, her childhood crush. As evidence mounts and points to a serial killer with disturbingly familiar methods, Serena and Dominic must work to find a pattern and stop the killings before the murderer strikes again. And when Serena's own life is at stake, she must decide if the secret she has been keeping has put her next on the killer's hit list. Can she trust Dominic with the truth before it's too late?

Story very good but.....

The continued story in this series was very good. Suspenseful and fast paced. My problem is with the narration. I liked the narrator's enthusiasm but she was awful with additional voices. Part of the problem comes from the first book in the series. That narrator gave each character a personality that enhanced the story. This narration discarded those personalities and constantly pulled me out of the excitement of the story. Many of the voices were so close it was hard to distinguish who was talking. I hope the new narrator in book three gives the characters back their more believable personalities.

Worse narration ever

I simply can not listen to this another minute. Made to chapter 6. This is by far the worse narration I have ever experienced and I have listened to hundred of books. It is almost laughable and embarrassing to listen to. I can't believe this person was hired and published as a narrator. She can't change genders, there are pauses that I am unsure what the purpose was intended for.

I do want to read the series so I will be returning this and will purchase an e-reader edition.

Don't waste your money on the audible edition.

Narrator got in the way

I've enjoyed this author up until now, and might get this book to read instead. I really can't finish the audio version with this narrator.

Buy this one in print instead!

I really enjoy Lynette Eason as a writer and liked the first book in the series, so I bought this without reading the reviews. Such a mistake! The narration is awful. I have nearly stopped listening multiple times, but the third book has a different narrator, so I'm pushing through. The narrator makes every female character sound whiny and obnoxious and every male character sound stupid. So unfortunate.

Horrible. Reader.

Book was ok. The narrator sounded like she. Had. Periods in. Weird places. And made a lot. Of characters sound. Like idiots. Almost didn't finish it because it was so annoying, but I paid for the book, so...

Great Suspense Novel

The story was itself was good. Suspense and drama. However the Performance was not good at all. It would have been nice to have the same Performer for each novel in this series. Someone better than the first two.

Great story. Really, really bad narration

This is the worst narration ever. I cannot believe Ms. Eason and the producer didn't preview this work before releasing it. The first book was well done, therefore I didn't bother to check it out before purchasing. Regret that.

Book 2 of three

Like most of Ms Eason’s books, I was on the edge of my seat and there were many twists and turns!

problem with the voices

I had a big problem with the voice of the janitor being used for multiple people. Also multiple voices were used for each person.

Narrator really awful!

The narrator was so bad I couldn’t listen to entire book. I don’t understand why some try so hard to make characters sound different that they end up detracting from the book. Just make slight inflection changes and let the listeners mind assign the sound in their head!!
