Summary

A homicide detective in the dark. A serial killer on the loose. Both have their obsessions in a nerve-twisting novel of suspense by New York Times bestselling author Mary Burton.

Austin homicide detective Jordan Poe is hunting a serial killer she fears is the same man who assaulted her sister, Avery, two years ago. The details line up: the victims are the same age, same type, dead by the same grim MO. Luckily Avery survived. But the terrible memories linger, making Jordan more determined than ever to stop this monster in his tracks.

Texas Ranger Carter Spencer isn’t one to poach on a detective’s territory. Yet no matter how resentful a capable lone wolf like Jordan is, when she is attacked at a third crime scene and suffers a trauma that leaves her with limited vision, it’s up to Carter to help Jordan navigate a world she no longer recognizes. He needs her instinct, her experience, and her fearless resolve to crack this case. A case that’s about to get even darker.

A stranger is watching. He’s closing in on his ultimate prey. And no one but the killer can see what’s coming.

Too many narrators - stopped listening

I love Mary Burton’s books, but sadly I’ve had to stop listening to this one. There are several people reading it and, without notice (sometimes mid paragraph), somebody different suddenly starts reading.
I found it difficult to follow the story because of this and could not get to grips with the characters.
The choice of performers is so important and key to the listening experience - I have no idea who thought this would be a good idea.
Definitely would not recommend this audio book for this reason. Such a shame as I’m sure it’s a great story. Very disappointed.

good story

With this Mary Burton book not being a series the author does not have to think of the next book. Therefore unlike most books these days when in peril the main characters could be hurt or killed. This leaves a greater sense of apprehension with the dangers. The characters are good but the stubbornness of the protagonist is to the side of childish at times. Though over it's well worth a listen.

Jordan Poe’s narrator was awful!

Storyline was good, although I figured out the killer 2/3 rd of the way through. It was painful to listen to, however, as a Bostonian. If the voice of Jordon consistently used the terrible Boston accent one might get used to it, but sometimes the overdone incorrect accent was there, then it wouldn’t be used for a while, then the aaahhs for “r” were back. It was so distracting I had to go back to listen to portions because it was so distracting. I’d call out Huber, Firth, Eden, or Oben individually if I could find a cast list, but I cannot. The director should be ashamed of himself!

A few issues…

Have enjoyed Burton’s books, but this one was a little rough. Female lead character was a stereotypical tough girl who whined every time she couldn’t control every detail. The narrator’s voice for Jordan made everything worse. Boston accent was so bad it was horribly distracting. Don’t know who would find it believable. Sounded like a speech impediment instead of an accent. Male narrator was better. If you can’t nail the accent, don’t try. Ruined the story for me.

Fantastic Book, excellent narration

I really love Mary Burtons books! The strong characters she creates calls out to me to read more. I know there isn’t an announcement for a sequel to this book but I do hope there is one because they make a great couple and it will be interesting to see what Jordan does with her new position. Too many good characters to see where they can go!

Excellent clean suspenseful romance

This book was well written and the narration was excellent. I personally love a good mystery. It’s even better when I have to dig into the story to see who the bad guy is. I got the bad guy approximately 2/3 of the way through. But there was more to the story.

Am Ok mystery Thriller

I like Mary Burton and have many of her books. This one is a bit slower than some of the previous books but still pretty good.

Great story

This a great story, despite the gruesome, cold hearted killed attacking women struggling with addiction , some trying hard to get clean and start again. The characters are brave and captivating on their own way. Jordan, Avery and Carter Spencer. I definitely recommend it.

Amazing

THIS REVIEW IS FOR BOTH THE AUDIOBOOK AND EBOOK VERSIONS
That was absolutely amazing. I enjoyed these characters and the narrators did a spectacular job bringing life to the characters. The story was well written, thrilling, interesting and I just couldn't put it down. I recommend this book and hope to see more like this in the future regarding the narration with audiobook versions.
