Summary

"Is that an undertaker’s flower car"? her inner voice asked. Under her steadfast gaze he veered the vehicle toward the parking lot’s exit. The sight of him driving that type of vehicle was unusual enough but why was there a blue poly tarp covering its tail section? More importantly, what was under it? As if Loretta had willed it, the wind shifted, lifting the blue tarp; exposing the vehicle for what it was. A vintage flower car. More frightening though, was its cargo".

Is there a sociopathic killer on the loose and murdering prostitutes in New York City? NYPD’s top cop, Homicide Commander Lieutenant John Driscoll, believes there is. Someone who calls himself “Tilden” and claims to have been sexually abused as a child by his mother’s john. But what could have triggered Tilden’s rage that has him on a mission to eradicate all the women of the night in The Big Apple?

More importantly, will Driscoll put an end to the madness? He soon discovers Tilden’s not the run-of-the-mill sociopath. After all, would a common murderer have taken the time to embalm his victims, which the New York City chief medical examiner determined was the cause of their deaths?

Driscoll, a man haunted by the events of an unstable childhood himself, must put aside any sympathy he may have for Tilden and put a stop to his murderous rampage. Teamed up with Sergeant Margaret Aligante and Detective Cedric Thomlinson, who have their own issues, the commander sets out to stop the killings and bring Tilden to justice before he kills again.

No One Will Hear Your Screams

If you enjoy watching "Criminal Minds", you will probably enjoy this book. A sociopathic killer is on the loose in NYC, killing prostitutes in sadistic ways. Lieutenant John Driscoll and his team are in a race against time to try to find him before he can kill again. The killer seems to be on a rampage against his dead mother and Catholic Nuns for the wrongs that were committed against him as a child. Each murder just seems to feed the demons inside him. First of all, if you are squeamish, steer clear of this book. There are very graphic and disturbing descriptions of the murders that will definitely give some readers nightmares. The book was well-written and I especially enjoyed the dialogue between the three cops investigating. It's always refreshing to have some humor in a book like this. The character of Driscoll was engaging and I would enjoy reading more books with him as the MC. However, some of the scenes in the book really didn't seem to fit into the overall story. I guess the author was trying to flesh out the characters, but some of these parts didn't do anything to make the story better. There were several characters that really didn't add to the story (in my opinion). Also, I felt like the ending was a little rushed. After a long buildup, it was all over. I still have unanswered questions about the "motive" for the murder spree. I feel like it could have been so much better with more information. The narrator did his usual wonderful job and his performance really added a lot to my listening enjoyment. Mr. Nevitt is one of the few male narrators that seems to be able to pull off female voices in a convincing manner. I was given the chance to listen to this audiobook by the author/narrator/publisher and chose to review it.

Horrific Thriller

Tilden is a sociopathic serial killer of mostly prostitutes as well as other women who was abused as well as a child and with the church. Love the characters of Lieutenant Driscoll and Sergeant Margaret who do the investigation. There are some horrific disturbing scenes, violence and sexual situations taking place in towns of upstate NY. Recommend if you enjoy suspenseful thrillers with good narration. I was given this free review copy audiobook and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you

Great thriller!

Childhood abuse turns a once-quiet boy into a serial killer. Sounds cliche and sad but it’s true for this story. Someone is committing gruesome murders in NYC and it’s up to Lieutenant Driscoll and his team of misfit detectives to catch a killer. Captivating story and narration. Highly recommended if you enjoy this genre. I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Interesting

So, this book... ~sights~ okay, it kept me hooked from the beginning and I really liked the way in which there is actual police work happening in here. And there were a couple of twists that I didn't see coming and actually were functional to the plot. OTOH, this should come with a warning for Catholics. I am not a religious person and yet I'm struggling to not get offended in their behalf. Believe me, this was a first for me! We spent a lot of time with the killer, and that has its pro and its cons. We get a good understanding of how his mind works and why he kills in the way he does it. But his is an utterly disgusting mind, so... a good time was had by nobody. And I'm kind of annoyed by the fact that almost every character has a sexual trauma in their past. It gets a little creepy after the third one :P And talking about the characters, they aren't bad, but they are a little formulaic: the good ones are really, really good and the bad ones are really, really bad. But all in all, this is a good procedural, and if you can stomach lots of violence, a very entertaining one. And, as the cherry-on-top, this book is narrated by Bill Nevitt and I simply adore his style of narration. A very enticing plus, IMHO.
