A new serial killer is stalking Boston, killing his victims in bizarre ways, taunting the police with mysterious puzzles that reference the stars. As the stakes are upped and the pressure is on, the Boston Police Department is forced to call in its most brilliant - and most controversial - homicide detective: Avery Black.
Avery, still reeling from her last case, finds herself up against a rival precinct and a brilliant, cunning killer who is always one step ahead of her. She is forced to enter his dark, twisted mind as he lays clues for his next killing, and forced to look into places in her own mind she would rather not go. She finds herself compelled to seek the counsel of Howard Randall, the twisted serial killer she'd put behind bars years ago, all while her new burgeoning life with Rose and Ramirez is falling apart.
And just as things cannot get any worse, she finds out something else: she herself may be the target.
In a game of psychological cat and mouse, a frantic race against time leads Avery through a series of shocking and unexpected twists - culminating in climax that even Avery could not imagine.

"Why is it all British for a Boston story?"
I liked the story but the narration was really distracting both with the same accent for all characters and a too intense way of speaking. Disappointing read.
"Great story...but the narration is so wrong!!!"
Great story, but the narrator has a fairly thick British accent for all characters for a story based in Boston,MA, USA. Although her intonation was better for each character than the last book, is was just wrong for a story in Boston. I don't know if I will continue with the series because of this.
"Why a British narrator"
Why a British accent narrator for a book taking place in Boston? Story was fine but a accent made it hard to listen to.
This author has a formula and he's sticking to it. This is the third series where the main character is this perfectly flawed female detective. He has taken the typical macho man and given him breast. I feel like I only read half of the book because the story is so one dimensional. The killer is just a shadow. Like the boogie man that everyone talks about but no one sees. The narrator is horrible because her british accent is all wrong for the story. They're in Boston MA for Pete's sake! This is the same narrator from the other series as well, all set in the United States. I got these books on sale, so there you have it...
"cause to run"
The story was very good but reader sounded like she was British and didn't go with the Boston location.
"IT'S IN THE STARS!!!"
THAT'S A HARD QUESTION WHEN YOU LISTEN TO AS MANY BOOKS AS I HAVE.
RAMIREZ, DOWN TO EARTH, REALLY CARES FOR HER.
AVERY, OF COURSE!!!
GOOD READ, HELPS PUT LIFE AND WORK INTO PERSPECTIVE. THEY CAN GET JUMBLED....
