This is a really good book, I was constantly changing my mind about who I thought the killer was but it is slow. You have to preserve with it, it starts off slow, but it's definitely worth it.

In the dead of a swelteringly hot summer's night, Detective Erika Foster is called to a murder scene. The victim, a doctor, is found suffocated in bed. His wrists are bound and his eyes bulging through a clear plastic bag tied tight over his head. A few days later, another victim is found dead in exactly the same circumstances. As Erika and her team start digging deeper, they discover a calculated serial killer - stalking their victims before choosing the right moment to strike.

I love Diane Chamberlain's books and this is no exception. My only criticism would be that the middle section of the book is a bit drawn out, some bits went on longer than needed.

The whole way through I just wanted Carly to catch a break and I really felt attached to her.

This book starts very slow and the only reason I kept listening was to find out how the 2 separate characters were linked. It's in 3 parts and I would say I eventually became invested in the book during part 2. I would recommend it to people and tell them to just keep going as it's definitely worth listening to for the ending. No one else seems to have mentioned this in their reviews but in part 1 Vicky's chapters started with a very strange piece of audio where the narrator sounded like they had been slowed down, I'm not sure if this was just a fault on my download but I found it pretty irritating!
