Summary

This audiobook includes the first four thrillers in the Violet Darger series: Dead End Girl, Image in a Cracked Mirror, Killing Season, and The Last Victim.

Start at the beginning of the Violet Darger saga with Dead End Girl:

Her body is broken. Wrapped in plastic. Dumped on the side of the road. She is the first. There will be more. 

The most recent body was discovered in the grease dumpster behind a Burger King. Dismembered. Shoved into two garbage bags and lowered into the murky oil.

Now, rookie agent Violet Darger gets the most important assignment of her career. She travels to the Midwest to face a killer unlike anything she's seen. Aggressive. Territorial. Deranged and driven.

Another mutilated corpse was found next to a roller rink. A third in the gutter in a residential neighborhood. These bold displays of violence shock the rural community and rattle local law enforcement.

Who could carry out such brutality? And why?

Unfortunately for agent Darger, there's little physical evidence to work with, and the only witnesses prove to be unreliable. The case seems hopeless. If she fails, more will die. He will kill again and again.

The victims harbor dark secrets. The clues twist and writhe and refuse to keep still. And the killer watches the investigation on the nightly news, gleeful to relive the violence, knowing that he can't be stopped.

The serial killer thriller that "refuses to let go until you've listened to the last sentence".

A pause-resisting thriller series packed with heart-stopping suspense. Fans of John Sandford, Michael Connelly, Karin Slaughter, and Lisa Gardner should get to know Violet Darger.

A brilliant psychological thriller box set.

Violet Darger is a FBI profiler, but in the first book she is new to profiling but has a real knack for reading people understanding how they tick. She also has a knack for putting her foot in it, especially with her colleague which leads to some awkward moments.
She partners up in the first book with Victor Loshak, a veteran profiler who has a reputation for being an amazing profiler but a prickly partner and as a result tends to work alone.
The two of them work through serial killer cases alongside the local law enforcement.
The books are very well research which leads to a read that is very realistic, with tense moments, twists in the story line, humour and you get to know the characters more and more.
If you like serial killer, thriller, FBI profiling type books then give this box set a go, I don’t think you will be disappointed.
It is well read by Kate Marcin who manages to bring all the characters to life, even the dead ones!

29 hours of non-stop action

Sometimes characters get inside your head, Violet Darger is one of those characters. This box set is maybe the best way to introduce yourself to a very memorable character who is always neck deep in action and more than her fair share of sleuthing. Violet is one of the few characters that I have no problem revisiting time and again, having read the individual books, this was an opportunity to revisit her, and once again Kate Marcin brought the stories and characters to life.

From the beginning book this series grabs you

Sometimes a characters in a series become real to you. Become friends. You begin to worry what's going to happen to them, in each story. That's what happens here with Violet and Loshak. With each story you become drawn further into their lives as investigators and as people. The writing is crisp and inviting making you want to linger over each tale told. Each word written making you excited for the next. Each new story is more in depth with more devious opponents each time. You'll find yourself longing to figure out how they come up with such clever villains. The narration is smooth and dreamlike keeping you completely entranced.
