Summary

A known serial killer is once again taking lives in Chicago. Bodies drained of blood are being strewn across the city.

For former Tampa homicide sergeant, Hank Rawlings, tracking down the man responsible for the killings becomes his first assignment at his new position, agent in the FBI's homicide division of the serial crimes unit.

Almost before the ink dries on the new job's acceptance papers, Hank finds himself in Chicago, knee-deep in an investigation with a mounting body count.

While every lead brings him and his partner closer to the killer, the one that puts them directly in front of him threatens them most.

Super Thriller - O wanted more!!

Have you listened to any of Todd McLaren’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have never heard anything Todd McLaren has narrated before but would definitely listen to and recommend him as a narrator. I thought he did a great job.

Any additional comments?

This book reminds me very much of the Owen Laukkanen books (The Professionals, The Stolen Ones & more).
The protagonist in this book Hank Rawlings and his partner are following the trail of a serial killer who drains the blood from his victims and leaves their bodies in not too hidden places around the city. This you can read in the book description. What you can't read in the synopsis is the really great bantering that goes on between the partners. You also won't get the hysterical control his wife has over the mundane things in his life. Things like picking out what car they buy or what clothes he's going to wear - like a pink tie so he will stand out and be noticed but is considering letting him pick out his own clothes to see how he does!Meanwhile you find out early on who the killer is but obviously the thrill is in the chase.
I really really liked this book and hope that this is just the beginning of a new series.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

CREEPY AND REALISTIC

Good story, liked the partner relationship. The killer was creepy and realistic. It could have been longer or differently paced maybe? not sure, but something was missing.

I wish there were more E.H. Leinhard audiobooks...

...in both the Agent Hank Rawlings series and the Lieutenant Kane series. Thanks to Audible listener Shelley's review I became aware of Drained being available at Audible. Drained is an outstanding FBI serial murder thriller.

Great Story

Really great story and very well narrated.
I usually listen to these books while driving long trips and it's surprising how quickly the journey goes by and how relaxed I am on arrival.

I really recommend this book! I will be buying more!!

Good book, ok narration

I enjoyed the book but was a bit disappointed by Todd McLaren’s narrative performance. His narrative of the different male characters was very good but when it came to the female characters his narrative of female voices was distracting from the story, at least for myself.

Boring

No character development but boring descriptions of everyday character life. The author does little beyond giving you a heinous serial crime.

Boring

The premise of the story had potential but the execution was boring. The book becomes mired with police procedure. I expected a fast past story with agents working by the seat of their pants with the tension of preventing another murder. I should have given the Amazon ratings more credence.
