Summary

There's nothing strange about bodies buried in cemeteries - unless they don't belong there. And when six murdered women are discovered in other people's graves, the hunt for a sadistic serial killer begins before he can claim a seventh victim.

Agent Cam Prescott of Iowa's Division of Criminal Investigation is leading the search alongside forensic psychologist Sophia Channing, who knows the minds of psychopaths inside and out. And after a brief but passionate affair, she knows Cam almost as well. What she doesn't know is that her high-profile involvement in the case has caught the twisted predator's eye - and sparked his fury. When Sophia suddenly vanishes, Cam and his team shift into overdrive to keep horrific history from repeating itself. But for Sophia, being trapped in the same isolated lair where so much innocent blood has been spilled may get her inside her vicious captor's head - and may offer her the only chance she has to escape an agonizing and lethal fate.

5 star book and 10 star narration..

I loved every character in this book! Because of the narrator!

The killer was just sick enough, making him so easy to hate.

One thing I didn’t understand, or like, was how often Cam and Sophia were in bed together, every chapter or two, when in actuality they had broken up months ago. Why did we keep jumping into the past? I didn’t really get that. It really didn’t hurt the story but it did seem extremely unnecessary.

Oh, I did love, love, love Cam and Sophia. They tried so hard to be business-like but couldn’t keep their minds focused all the time. You could tell they had fallen in love during the weeks they were together but neither of them thought it would work so they went their separate ways. Although, it was actually Sophia that called it quits.

Their chemistry was so great, throughout the story. And there were some exciting bedroom scenes, too. There was swearing and the F-bomb was released 27 times.

The mystery and murder and mayhem this guy caused was a thrilling and exciting storyline. I’ve never read this author before but she’s awesome. Even though this was a CLIFFHANGER that I wasn’t aware of, because I despise cliffhangers, I’ve already got the other 2 books in the series and I can’t wait to get started on them.

As to the narrator: When I can just listen to a book without saying to myself “geez, this narrator sucks,” then that’s a good narrator. And when she reads with such terrific emotions, then it’s really good. And when everyone has their own voice, then it’s just excellent. When the bad guy had thoughts or was talking to himself Kate Zane was just awesome. He sounded like a madman was supposed to, and when he talked to Sophie it was just so horrible and thrilling all at once. I enjoyed every second of this book, thanks to the narrator. When narration can make me buy 2 more books of a cliffhanger series that really says a lot about the author.

Psychological thriller ends in cliffhanger!

Frankly, while Chasing Evil is a decent suspense thriller, it is much more a romance novel. There are two more novels in the Circle of Evil series which I plan to skip. The mild cliffhanger ending is not a surprise

Narrator was terrible

I think that this could be a great book if it wasn't for the narrator. I was listening and the characters sounded a like. I honestly couldn't even finish the book.

Did not like the writing or the narrator

I tried to get through this book but I thought the narration and the writing were terrible. I tried several times to listen to it and just couldn't get through it

Absurd Romace and characters

I barely got through the first few chapters. The characters are ridicules and quite "high-schoolish". I can't imagine any man I have ever known thinking the way the main male character does after breaking up with the lead female character. It is juvenile.

I am returning it.

I liked this one, sort of...

Good story, kept me listening until the end. My major problem was with the narrator. The book seemed to jump from timeline to timeline, she did not take any pause or indicate in anyway that the scene was changing. It was difficult for me to follow along on occasion.

Narrators Make or Break the Experience

I liked the book. I'm glad I discovered Kylie Grant, as I will be purchasing more of her books. My main criticism is regarding the narration. It is incredibly annoying for narrators to mispronounce words, especially cities mentioned in the books. In this book, the story took the characters to the town of Edina, MN. The narrator mispronounced Edina throughout the book. It is not pronounced "A dEEna". It's pronounced "eh dina", with a long I, like "DINE" or "FINE. It's not spelled in a way that the narrator should pronounce it with a long E. Makes no sense. Narrators should research pronunciation of words they aren't sure of. Also, I understand the need to use different inflection, tone, etc to differentiate between characters, but it makes no sense to use southern accents and Brooklyn accents in a story taking place in Iowa, just as a way to distinguish characters.. Sure, there can be transplants from those parts of the country there, but if that's the case, develop the characters a bit more and explain why they have southern or NE accents. These things really distract from the enjoyment of audio books. Sorry if that sounds petty,

Couldn't get past the narrator

I listened to this book and really really tried to keep listening but the narrator just turned me off. I think if there was a better narrator, I would have finished it. Sorry to say this.

Intense!

Just a short review to recommend the first book on this trilogy. It might not be for everyone, but I enjoyed it.
