When the woman's husband kills himself and the lover disappears, Carver knows he's right. Soon he's groping in a maze of escort services and blackmail where death may be penance for the guilty. And a dangerous attraction he's drawn into may lead to his own demise.
I started reading John Lutz backwards. I began with The Night Spider and THe Night Watcher and enjoyed these books very much. I looked for more titles by this author and stumbled upon Oops and Torch. Defenitely in a different league! Torch is an OK story; John Lutz is a good story teller. but his characters lacked conviction and substance. I don't know if this was due to the flat and boring performance of the narrator though. Overall it was OK and enjoyable

Perhaps more thought could be given when picking a narrator. Fred Carver is not a high school sophomore with good diction. Please try to find someone more appropriate. A poorly chosen reader can ruin a potentially good listen.
