Every small town in Connecticut has its secrets, but none are as shocking as Melington's.
After the riots, Melington becomes the primary target of an FBI investigation. The Council is more ruthless than the town has ever seen. And a national spotlight shines brightly on the mysterious cases of missing children.
But there is one secret that no one knows better than Alan Carter.
As children outside Melington start disappearing, Alan Carter knows that Copper Tibet has grown more powerful than ever before.
No child will be safe. Anywhere.

This is the last book in the trilogy. Children have disappeared, town riots and the FBI are on the job. Plenty of suspense and drama.
The narrator was great in all 3 books.The characters were well portrayed.
Jake Urry's sinister narration could make the reading of a telephone directory sound like something by Lovecraft - and this is no telephone listing. The third in the series about Copper Tibet and the fine folks of Melington, the ongoing story is interspersed with FBI interview reports, which, by their very normalcy, further add to the otherworldliness of the rest of the text. So many folks seem to have disappeared following the riots in the town and the FBI need to question them. More children are missing, too. Alan Carter knows that only he can stop Tibet and his companion, the Lady in Red.
This is a story which creeps into one's head, prompting primal fears of darkness and hands emerging to grab ankles. The narration enhances the written word, leaving an unease even after the main book is concluded, a feeling increased with the excellent bonus chapters which follow.
So would I recommend this book to a friend? It could, just, be read as a stand alone but that would certainly lack the fine character building from the previous two volumes. Ideally, the whole series should be read in sequence. And any friend might not like me at the end if they are of an already nervous disposition. But for the brave, yes, recommended.
Yes, the story kept me riveted throughout.
As always Jake ads true class to any work, He is the BMW of narrators is the meaning as totally consistent. He obviously does his homework before he begins his work.
when the main character took responsibility to keep copper under control
definitely the worst of the 3 in this trilogy
jakes performance equals anything I've heard from him and he consistently narrates at a very high standard
if the tale was told as the first in two books (in a linear fashion) I would have found this to be a good a fitting end to the trilogy, but unfortunately it's told in the "present and future" so by half way through the book you basically know what happened to the main characters of the book!
I have no idea why the sudden divergence from the other two books but for me it at the same time makes it more confusing(because when you come back from the future where some of the characters have concluded their part in the tale are suddenly alive or free) and giving you the answers to the tale well before the end of the story
This was the third and final (?) book in the Slaughter series, which needs to be listened to in order.
As the FBI becomes involved in the case of the events that have shaken up the small town of Melington, Alan Carter's actions in the last book have wide-reaching consequences, and it becomes clear that Alan will be the only person who can put an end to it all.
I absolutely loved the 'Lady in Red', what a wonderfully horrible character.
However, I could have done without the FBI reports that were breaking up the flow of the story for me. Combined with the many changes of perspectives, it just made the story jump about a lot.
I really liked the ending which was very fitting and rather unexpected, excellent for a horror story. The bonus scenes were fantastic. I enjoyed finding out about the fate of the reporter.
The deep and gritty narration was excellent. Another smooth performance by Jake Urry who is fantastic at increasing the menace you feel while listening to this.
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
This entire series was so distractingly scary. The voices that Jake Urry portrays will keep you looking over your shoulder. That distinctive voice taking on a totally different personality when he becomes the various characters. When he becomes the wraith, omg it was horrifying.
Those characters, what can I say about them except they scare me and make me fear the dark. The hands of Copper grabbing people around the ankles just terrifies me. Each time he shows up, I am more upset with the raspy voice and the horrible stench. A.I. Nasser has truly created a masterpiece of terror. I get pulled in and can not stop listening until the bitter end.
An excellent way to spend an evening is listening to the horror on your own. This story is hard to forget. It stays with you,
"I have a love/hate relationship with this book"
Yes, having all the different voices makes it much better then reading the print version. Horror is a genre in general that I prefer in audio.
It wasn't this way until the very end, but Alan most definitely. He makes a decision that shows a level of selflessness and courage that many others cannot match, and does it with very little thought.
Jake Urry is by far one of the bests horror narrators I have come across. His voice beings a level of intensity and dread that really brings the creepiness of the book to life.
Sadness and respect. I know that these are just characters in a book, but when you get into books as much as I do the characters do take on a life of their own and I felt great respect and sadness at the end of this book.
I received this book free from the narrator via audiobookboom for an unbiased review.
"Is This Really the End ?"
Sad to come to the end of this series. But I am not sure it really is the end. What about Alan and the children? I must say..... the ending has left me thinking there are possibilities for continuing the story line.
Be sure to Complete this book as there are proposed/supposed situations re: the lady in red. I must admit that I never would have thought of them. Could they be hinting at a new series?
Mr. Urry's narration is spot on. His talented voice/ inflection lends itself quite well to this genre adding color and suspense to an already suspenseful book.
This audiobook has been gifted to me in exchange for my honest review.
"Sorry to see it end..."
Copper's Keeper is the third and final installment in the Slaughter series and I hope that A.I.Nasser one day changes his mind and continues the series, because that's actually possible after listening to the bonus scenes at the end of the book. This is still my favorite horror series and I'm looking forward to more books from this author.
The book starts with a lot of action and many new characters in the police department and FBI. I was sometimes very confused about who was who and it became a bit overwhelming. None the less, I enjoyed the final book and the hunt for answers - the police/FBI on the hunt for real life answers about the missing children and Alan trying to take Copper Tibet down on his own.
Copper's Keeper was very good wrapped up and had a satisfying ending. Listen to the two first books before this one, because it doesn't stand alone.
Jake Urry is again amazing in his narration and perfect for this genre. His skills as an actor really comes in handy in a series like this with many different characters.

"Supernatural Thriller that kept me glued"
Exhilarating, Thrilling, Exciting
The continuous twists and turns with great characters kept me wanting more.
Jake does a great job. His voice was well suited for this book and genre.
"I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom."
This was a little more character hopping and an introduction to some background characters. I kind of expected the ending but hoped for another way. But a great addition and finish to the series! And fantastic narration.
"More Copper Tibet, More Melington!"
I quite enjoyed the Slaughter Series, but the first book (Children to the Slaughter) is still my favourite of the three. Copper’s Keeper is still really good, though. I especially liked the FBI entries sprinkled throughout. They are an interesting touch, and they add some emotional aspects to the story. However, the best part about this book (in my opinion) are the bonus scenes/chapters at the very end. The bonus scenes really wrap up everything nicely beyond the original ending, and they are super spooky! It is, of course, always a pleasure to listen to Jake Urry’s performances. He has done a remarkable job narrating this series! If you liked the first two books of this series, you should check out Copper's Keeper.

"Satisfying Conclusion to a Great series"
This book is a satisfying conclusion to a great paranormal suspense/horror series. Being that this is the conclusion I think you would get more out of the story if you listen to the first two books before listening to this one. The author wrapped up the series nicely, leaving few unanswered questions. There were also quite a few twists that I didn’t see coming. The bonus chapters at the end of the story were great. They did a fantastic job filling in a lot of the blanks and answering a lot of questions for me. The narrator did an amazing job with this story. He has an excellent voice for creating a creepy atmosphere, and he voiced all of the characters really well. Overall, this was a highly enjoyable series and it’s definitely worth a listen.

"Slaughter Series. Book 3"
Perfect ending to a fantastic series. The bonus at the end of the book is a must read. I never would have thought about what could have possibly happened to the reported and the lady in red.
Jake Urry once again does fantastic narrating another book in the Slaughter Series. His voice holds so much suspense in all the right places. One thing I'm not sure I care about is the music at the beginning and ending of the narration. I prefer no sound other than the voice of the narrator
I received this audio from the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an honest unbiased review.
"Great Thriller Series"
This is the 3rd book of the series, enjoyed the 1st 2 better as ending was odd. Left you wondering about Alan and the children. Can’t wait for the next book. Recommend the series if you enjoy suspenseful thrillers with great characters. This audiobook was gifted me by the narrator who is a great horror narrator. Thank you!
"Excellent Horror Series!"
What's happening to the children?!? Why has it taken so long for the FBI to get involved?? Will they find the answers they seek and if they do, will they believe what they find???
Fantastic story line and excellent conclusion to the series, though I am sad to come to the end. Hopefully, A.I. Nasser is hard at work on another horror series of equal suspense and excitement. Make sure to listen to the first 2 books in the series though as this is not a stand alone book.
As for Jake Urry...where do I begin? He is an amazing narrator full of talent. His acting background brings his ability to easily navigate and master the different characters of the story with credibility. Of all of the authors I have listened to over the years, and there are many, he is by far one of my favorites. When looking for a new audio book, I often find myself searching for books narrated by Jake rather than by author or by genre as the soothing tones of his voice in narration help to draw the listener in to any story. Keep it up Jake, we are listening!!
If you are considering this series of books, you can't go wrong as it is an excellent choice!
