Summary

FBI agent-in-training Mackenzie White struggles to make her mark in the FBI Academy in Quantico, trying to prove herself as a woman and as a transplant from Nebraska. Hoping she has what it takes to become an FBI agent and leave her life in the Midwest behind for good, Mackenzie just wants to keep a low profile and impress her superiors.

But all that changes when the body of a woman is found in a garbage dump. The murder bears shocking similarities to the Scarecrow Killer - the case that made Mackenzie famous in Nebraska - and in the frantic race against time to stop a new serial killer, the FBI decides to break protocol and give Mackenzie a chance on the case.

It is Mackenzie's big break, her chance to impress the FBI - but the stakes have never been higher. Not everyone wants her on the case, and everything she touches seems to go wrong. As the pressure mounts and the killer strikes again, Mackenzie finds herself as a lone voice in a sea of experienced agents, and she soon realizes she is in way over her head. Her entire future with the FBI is in jeopardy.

As tough and determined as Mackenzie is, as brilliant as she is in hunting down killers, this new case proves an impossible riddle, something just beyond her reach. She may not even have time to crack it as her own life falls apart around her.

Performance Inconsistent with Story!

A story set in DC about a female police officer from Minnesota becoming an FBI agent and solving serial killer cases is right up my alley! However, the performance was so incongruous with the story, I couldn't stay focused on it. All of the characters had British/Irish accents!!!! They are US FBI agents living in DC speaking with heavy accents! It was sooooooo distracting.

British accent?

Interesting characters and pretty engaging story but the British accent and pronunciation was disconcerting. Is only an issue on audio book.

good book

loved it, buying the series, i feel being its set in america with fbi agents, the narrator shouldn't be British, although her reading is superb. she really makes it exciting the accent is just off.

Narrator's. Voice does not fit storyline

I could have enjoyed this story but why on earth would they have someone with a full English accent read this? It threw it off for me and was a huge distraction. Otherwise the story was an ok read.

FBI story discordant with British narrator

Best advice is to read this book to forego the head shaking resulting from British voice of narrator and use of British colloquialisms.

unbelievable

Good story with a few areas where I had to willingly suspend disbelief that an FBI agent, or anypne, would make certain leaps of intuition. But the narrator rendered it non believanle. She does a great job, but this FBI story is no place for a full-on British accent.

Awful!!

I reallly tried!!
The heroine was SO dumb and by the time I got to chapter 33 I couldn't stand it anymore. I gave up.
Also - why a British voice for a book about the FBI??

Very disappointed!

I had a hard time getting through the book but I wanted to give it a fair review so I finished it. First of all, why is this book narrated by a British narrator? As far as I can tell the main character is not from Britain nor anyone else in the book. And if the FBI are as idiotic as the story implies I fear for our country. The main character is impulsive and somewhat foolish though she is brave and has a sense about things. That’s pretty much the best I can say about it. The story was very frustrating to listen to and I was anxious to have it end.

Interesting Story

The buildup and anticipation make this story, as well as the character development. Enjoyable book.
