Nowhere to run - the crime scenes are horrifying: the victims arranged with deliberate care, posed to appear alive despite their agonized last moments and the shocking nature of their deaths. No Place to Hide -Chattanooga grief counselor Audrey Sherrod moonlights for the local police. It's clear to her, and to Special Agent J.D. Cass, that the murders are the work of a deranged serial killer. At first, the only link is the victims- similar physical appearance. But then another connection emerges, tying them to a long-ago series of horrifying crimes Audrey hoped would never resurface-crimes that hit all too close to home. No Time To Cry - Each grisly new discovery proves the past has not been forgotten, and the worst is yet to come. Audrey went looking for the truth and she-s about to find it-and it will be more twisted and more terrifying than she ever imagined.

I have purchased 2 Beverley Barton books after being drawn in by the story outline. I found the story nothing like as punchy as it seemed and I just could not take to the characters. As for the narration: like being spoke to by a nursery school teacher. Not for me.
"Great story, great narration but some loose ends."
I enjoyed the dynamics of the story. I enjoyed how the author is descriptive about mundane things you never think about in a story that expands the imagery.
The storyline is decent but lots of loose ends for me. How did she kidnap the toddlers? What happened to the killer DA? What was the daughter's response to them hooking up?
Overall, I rate the story @ 4 stars b/c of the loose ends. Story is very interesting and sometimes laugh out loud funny. Well worth a credit.
"keeps you on the edge"
this is a good mystery + romance. I do not like terror, and was unfamiliar with BB work. I am planning on buying more of Ms BB stories read by Karen White. This story kept you on the edge of your seat the whole listen, but it is still a romance story. I would listen again if time permits.
When JD stays with our heroine...he is just plain old sweet
I went hunting for more of Karen White's reads and found this author...I took a chance as a good mystery is just fine and takes you out of the daily grind. After Karin Slaughter work, never again as her work is based on terror. (Natalie Ross is a fave reader and that is how I purchased a terror book!!) Ms White has a great range and I have come to look forward to her good range of characters. ( See her US Attorney reads by Julie James) She can interpret an author style so well, especially whit and humor)
several came to mind that were spread through the book. Brothers ordeal, father's grieve with another lone survivor mother, and the good change of attitude from JD's daughter.
if you like a good mystery+ romance, then this will not disappoint...I have in my wish list the balance of ms Barton's books reads by ms white...Oh which to buy next., the Will Trent or the mouthy PI?
"Great analiytic, southern, serial killer series!"
I would recommend the whole series of Beverly Barton's psychological thrillers. The book was set in Chatt. Tennessee and crossed over into North Alabama. Ms. Barton lived only thirty miles from my home and thus, I felt compelled to read her books. I was so pleased to find them well written, with an excellent plot and who done it surprise in the end. The series is very accurate with the police and detective work and of course a complicated love story to boot. Most cops/criminal books are set in areas like New York so I was excited to hear about my southern roots. Yeah, we got serial killers down here! I am sad to say that Ms. Barton passed away over a year ago and will never bless us with her powerful writing skills again. Don't miss these books, they are her legacy and gift to us all.
Her gift at southern twang was interesting and she was an ok narrator.
"Great story, okay writing, terrible narrator"
The story is great, very well plotted and very exciting. Plus I am a Chattanooga girl so I loved that aspect of it. But the narrator was the WORST!
Yes, I couldn't wait to get back in my car or up on the treadmill to hear the next part of the story!
Somebody without a whiny voice. Holy cow! If the story wasn't so good and if it hadn't been a Chattanooga story, I've have returned it after the first 15 minutes.
I had to go right to River Street Deli and order an Elana Ruz sandwich! Turkey with cream cheese and a dab of strawberry jam. Now I can't live without it!
This would be a great book with a different reader. Her voice was whiny, sing-songy, highly pitched and screechy. It was really tough to ignore. I think that shows what a great book this is --- I have a very low tolerance for bad readers.
took a while to finish good characters enjoyed the book on the whole it was ok
