Summary

A seaside retreat has just become a killer's favorite playground.

It's summer on the Jersey Shore. Children play on the beach. Husbands are off working in the city. And the surf echoes in the night. Here, in this perfect place, a serial killer has no worries in the world - except choosing the next victim.

Cam Hastings has come to Long Beach Island with her teenage daughter and the hope that maybe she can save her failed marriage. Cam has never stopped loving her husband, Mike, nor has she been able to outrun her flaws and demons - a vanished mother, a lost sister, and the ugly visions she has of missing children.

Now, Cam is about to step over the edge. For once, she will act on one of her visions - and then face the consequences. For a killer has just struck again. And for Cam, and the people she loves most, fear has come home for good.

Good New Series

Let me start off by saying that I did very much enjoy this book. But I knocked a star off because of some formatting choices that I think the editors/author thought would enhance the listening experience, for me it was just distracting. There were multiple perspective shifts in each chapter but rarely were they delineated in any understandable way. Perhaps it was meant to keep the listeners on our toes but mostly it was just frustrating. I enjoyed the fact that it wasn’t a classic detective thriller story and that the majority of the book was centered around Cam. I think the author did a fair job of creating realistic characters that stay true to what most people in their situations would think and feel. I appreciated how authentic each of their voices sounded. I am looking forward to the next book. Emily Sutton-Smith was really amazing with the delivery of the story. She is one of my favorite narrators and she did not disappoint with this story.

It’s a Good Read.....or listen!

I was not sure what to pick from the free audible deluxe collection . Karin Slaughter is what I’ve been obsessed with, until I finished listening to all of them ( except for Cop-town) I felt if I pick any other author I’d be disappointed . I was surprisingly pleased. Great twists & turns very subtle but you know they are leading you down a path.... A few times I had to stop listening — just because I didn’t want the book to end. This is a good story narrator is very smooth & clear Thank you !

EXCELLENT STORY!!!

This story pulled me in from the very start and for me, it never had dead or slow segments anywhere in the story. That in itself was very unusual considering it's a great 12 hrs of listening. When I look at the series, it indicates that the second book isn't available BUT I purchased the first and second book at the same time so I have "Dead Before Dark" already in my library. That's the one thing that bugs me with Audible. When I look at the series, it doesn't show me owning the second book but when I search for the title, it pops up in my library. Very deceiving! Regardless, this is a talented author and her books in this series are well worth the credits. I always enjoy Emily Sutton-Smith's narrating talents.

Well written and performed

It is nice to find a new author who can write. The characters were believable and mostly likable. The story was a bit 'meh', but I will read her other books. I enjoy Wendy Corsi Staub and Emily Sutton-Smith is a good narrator.

Blah blah blah

Omg there is so much inner dialogue between any real dialogue. I fell sleep for a couple hours and the plot had not progressed much at all. I didn’t want to quit once I put in so much time. The last 5 hours I listened to at double speed and skipped a couple chapters. Will never waste time with this author again. Once more I ask, where are the editors? This had some potential. Also not great dialogue. Also there is no pause between paragraphs which completely change characters. Annoying as hell

Good Book!

a really good book! It did go a bit all over the place, making it a little difficult to follow in parts. But still I enjoyed it.😁

Good book

I enjoyed this book very much and it held my interest throughout. The only issue I have is the secondary storyline which could easily have been left out without harming the main story at all. Narrator did an excellent job as well
