Summary

When young priest Nicolas Chatry took his vows, he thought the hardest thing he’d have to deal with was accomplishing his duties from a wheelchair. Until a murderer steps into the confessional. Unable to recognize the voice or maneuver quickly enough to get a look at the killer, Nicolas has no way of identifying who admitted to such a horrific deed. And even if he did, his vows prevent him from telling anyone about it. 

Unable to live with the knowledge that a predator is walking the streets of New Orleans, Nicolas breaks his vows and hires Shaye to do the impossible - find the killer before he strikes again.

Count on DeLeon for continually writing the Best..

This is such a good book, series, author... This is book #7 in the Shaye Archer series. Although not necessary I would suggest listening to the series in order for continuity of character development.
The publisher's summary gives a very good overview of the first maybe two chapters.
What happens following a killers confession is a fast paced story of lies and deceit. Shaye and boyfriend /police investigator Jackson are unknowingly working on the same case. One woman murdered, another abducted and a priest is being threatened. The longer this story goes on the more suspects with motives are revealed.
About half way through the book I had my suspicions but they weren't confirmed until the very end.
Julie McKay does an outstanding job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Jana DeLeon is incredible!

Jana DeLeon has released 3 audio novels recently, two in her light and fun Miss Fortune mystery series and DAMNED in her rather dark Shaye Archer mystery series. All three have rated solid 5 stars.

BEST BOOK to date in the Shaye Archer series

I see your name, JD, and I purchase the book---no questions asked. If you write it, it is going to be great.

As for the Shaye Archer series --may it go on and on. The Best Detecting novel out on the market.
Just buy the book and read/listen to it-------you will not be sorry

Jana DeLeon you have done it again! Julie McKay is the voice of Shaye Archer.

Really good story line

I have the whole Shaye Archer series and I really like it. This book is the best in the series as far as I’m concerned. It has mystery and is thrilling too. A must listen if you like mysteries and thrillers.
