Amongst the killing

What did you like best about this story?

Joe Compton skilfully created tension in the listener to their limits with this adrenaline-fuelled cop vs killer masterpiece. The fascinating relationship between Jack Casey and Detective Street was la captivating game of chess with each trying to outwit the other. Full of suspense.

Amongst the Killing

I received a free audio copy of this book to write a review.

This book tells two stories at the same time. One is about Charles Street, a detective that loses his wife and daughter to the serial killing he is chasing. The other story is about Jack Casey, the serial killer. It tells the different story lines rotating chapter by chapter. Because of this I wasn't impressed with the writing. The narration was good and it was easy to distinguish between "Charlie" and "Jack".

While it wasn't my favorite, I did finish listening to the book.

Decent story

I think the story is pretty good, although it's nothing new but has its own twists and turns that make it unique. I found it hard to follow at times because the narrator seemed to run words together and read the story instead of telling the story. I, personally, would have probably enjoyed this book more if I had read it in book form instead of listening to it in audio form.

I received this at no cost from audiobook boom for my honest and unbiased review.
