A strong debut. Archie Sheridan spent ten years tracking down Gretchen Lowell, then she catches him. Now she is in prison and he is still her captive. Now the hunt for a new serial killer is on and they have reactivated the task force. Gretchen is still in control. ( )

Grim and gruesome, serial killers & body parts, excruciating torture imagery, psychopaths, cops, victims and reporters - definitely a thriller-y thriller. I loved the story - the audio narration was meh. I'm going to grab another of Chelsea Cain's audio books if there's a different narrator. ( )

man, i love a good serial killer thriller! whilst the mystery itself wasn't very complicated, the interpersonal relationships portrayed by the supporting cast were excellent. i long for sequels! but not, like, twenty; that's overkill. ( )
