Publisher's Summary

New York City Medical Examiner Edward Jenner thought he'd got out, turning his back forever on forensics after the nightmare of 9/11. But then his students started turning up dead, their bodies forced into bizarre poses, and Jenner is dragged back into the city's dark streets in a nightmare race against the clock-and the twisted imagination of a psychopath.

College sophomore Ana Dejong survived the attack that killed her roommate; she thought she'd escaped, but the killer has other plans...

    "Great Book"

    Was very impressed with this book. Was a little worried when I read a review stating that it was very graphic and full of blood, but could not have enjoyed this book more. It is in the thriller genre and is very descriptive about the murders, but what do you expect when reading this type of book. I am a huge Karin Slaughter fan, and honestly found this book slightly tame compared to her graphic descriptions, but still thoroughly enjoyed it. Of course as with all thriller novels you guess some of the plot and a little can be very similar to other books, but overall I found this a refreshing take in most areas and very well written, definitely not a disappointing download, thank you.

    "Good listing"

    I really enjoyed this book, the murders are very detailed and the narrator was easy to listen to. The only reason I didn't give this book a full five stars is that other books I have listened to have slightly topped this one. But great if you like as I do detailed murder scenes........

    "Not what I'd hoped for"

    Was a bit disappointed with this book - the violence and shock appear to be compensating for a typical thriller plot. First half had me hooked, but was fast forwarding the second and couldn't wait for it to end :(

    "Gripping story over-burdened by grpahic detail"

    I enjoy crime fiction and am not too squeamish about details of injuries etc, but I did find that this book dwelt too much on the horrible details of what a psychopathic killer was doing to his female victims. As is often the case in this genre the motivation for the murders and the methods of of execution are bizarre. The writing style and the reader are both good, but I felt the book was too long and could have been shorter with any loss.

    I really enjoyed this book. The narration was also very good. I was spell bound to listen until the end of the story.
