Deanna Madden, aka Jessica Reilly, hasn't touched another person in three years. She hasn't left her apartment. She makes money from performing to webcams on a sex site, where her clients pay $6.99 a minute for her time. She's doing all right. The dollars are piling up in the bank. She's the number-three model on cams.com. And she hasn't killed anyone for years.
But when Deanna sees on the news that a little girl called Annie has gone missing, the story rattles her carefully ordered world. It's uncomfortably similar to the dark fantasy of one of her most disturbing online clients. She's convinced he's responsible for the girl's abduction - but no one will listen to her. So, after three years, Deanna finally leaves the apartment. And this is what happens....

Not for the faint-hearted: some graphic details of sex and violence but a gripping and unusual story with twists and turns right until the very end! An excellent listen!
A person of many interests starting from history, religion and education, to IT, cooking and books in all their old and recently born forms.
I just liked the story. I plan to listen to it again at some point.
The idea itself, the pace, the main character.
The main character, obviously. And the IT guy as well. I hope that if there would be a sort of continuing, he would be there.
Although I suspected that this was the case, the scene in the family house, when Deanna returns, was disturbing and catching and moving at the same time.
I have to say I went into this 3 for 2 sale only because of this book. I have no idea how, but I knew that this was something that would take mi in, and it did. I have never heard of the book or the author before but was not disappointed. It might not be a kind of book that would bring you into immense intelectual heights, but it entertains and this is the point. I listened this in 3 days, which is, taken my normal listenings and my current bussiness, an incredible speed. Could not put this down, used every moment for it.
There is a lots of kink in it, but I do not think of this as an erotic or a porn novel. For me it was purely descriptive and added to the whole atmosphere, but naturally I cannot think of this a film. The characters seemed real for me, although the main protagonist was more than odd.
The narration was enjoyable and I think Jorjeana Marie did a good job. At least for me.
I would recommend it to all who are into self-described novels with kink included and odd personalities involved. For myself I can say that what is advertised on Audible is what you get.
My heart is beating so fast... I couldn't stop listening.
Can't wait to buy the next book!
A. Torre never disappoints, I love her books, always a different story to tell.
