Publisher's Summary

A grisly murder. A six-year-old eyewitness. A gun from the grave.

The Profiler's Daughter is a psychologically haunting thriller that combines murder mystery, love triangle, and family intrigue in one satisfying page burner.

Sky Stone was born into the wealth and privilege of Boston's oldest Brahmin family but chooses instead to follow in the footsteps of her deceased father, legendary FBI profiler Monk Stone. In the chilly morning hours before the Boston Marathon, when a beautiful university student is found strangled and mutilated, her body left at the base of Heartbreak Hill, Sky returns from self-imposed exile to investigate. Thirty-six hours into the investigation, Sky's world turns upside down when she is fired from the Homicide team. They pin the murder on an innocent man, forcing Sky into a life-threatening game of cat and mouse with the real killer. From the stately mansions of Beacon Hill to the flat scrubland of central Texas, Sky keeps the reader on a razor's edge, culminating in a no-holds-barred shoot-out.

The Profiler's Daughter, the first in the Sky Stone Thriller series, introduces a moody, enigmatic, and brilliant female sleuth with the fierce bite of Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander. As adeptly written as Martin Cruz Smith's complex Arkady Renko novels, this thriller offers an intriguing plot, richly detailed characters, and an astonishing conclusion guaranteed to leave the listener begging for more.

    "Awful narration = poor story"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I couldnt get past the first few chapters. The narration was awful... the voices of the characters were way over the top in tone and characterisation. It would be interesting to know why she felt the need to do this. On top of that the main character narration is told in a quiet whiny voice that made me want to slap her.........


    Has The Profiler's Daughter put you off other books in this genre?

    no


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Oh gosh yes completely


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I wasnt able to listen long enough to know if the story was any good

    "Great dress but horrible police work "

    This book would have been a lot more enjoyable if the cops actually acted like cops, the narration didn't sound like a low budget version of the Sopranos and the main character didn't steal stuff from every place she went.

    Story
    "Implausible heroine"

    The heroine was frustratingly & consistently immature. Her poor choices were magnified by her fiscal entitlement. She appeared to be a spoiled, immature teen who repeatedly needing saving by her benefactors; as opposed to the "slightly flawed " , brilliant psychologist that the author seemed to want her to be. I was throughly disappointed. The worst part of the book is that I was running a marathon so I was forced to listen to the whole book.

    "Ok Story, but HORRIBLE Narrator"

    Story was...ok. Minor parts of the story are drawn out with insignificant details. While important parts lack intensity and explanation. The storyline and characters were undeveloped and overall incomplete. Left me feeling like I just wasted a lot of time listening to bits & pieces of a story.

    I will read a book, rather than listen to Gabrielle de Cuir narrate again! Her ridiculous attempts at various accents were almost comical and distracted from the storyline.

    "The Profiler's Daughter"

    The book was very riveting... I was disappointed in the end because you didn't tell us what the baby's gender was. Or who the father was. I really enjoyed listening to the book.

    "Story OK..."

    This was an ok story, but it was a tedious listen. The pace was slow and the performance made it slower.

    Story
    "Bought it on sale and still paid too much"

    The story is weak with random tangents that do not support the story or build the character at all. The main character is supposed to be smart and independent and strong but then doesn't know simple things like what a Sadie Hawkins dance is. I guess maybe the author is setting this up as a series and wanted to get some ground work out there but I'm not the least bit interested in reading more about Sky Stone.

    The narration was bad. The speech of every chapter was long, drawn out and over exaggerated. The story is set in Boston yet every character has a drawl. All the characters sound the same too. Not a fan of the narrator at all and will likely avoid any of her other work.
