Publisher's Summary

Special Agent Jason West is seconded from the FBI Art Crime Team to temporarily partner with disgraced and legendary "manhunter" Sam Kennedy when it appears that Kennedy's most famous case, the capture and conviction of a serial killer known as the Huntsman, may actually have been a disastrous failure. The Huntsman is still out there...and the killing has begun again.

Perfect Lanyon book!

I love Josh Lanyon. I have read a fair amount of Lanyon books. I didn't think it was possible with how much I fell in love with Adrien English after listening to the audiobooks, but The Mermaid Murders is now my favorite Josh Lanyon book.

I really enjoyed the narration of this one and felt that the voices were absolutely perfect (especially his Sam Kennedy voice!).

This book was just about perfect in my eyes and the only thing that would have made it better was to have Sam's POV. Do we really have to wait for 2017 for the next one? Waaaaahhhh!

Fabulous!! Narration, characters, story. The best!

Josh Lanyon is one of the best there is at weaving mystery with romance. Her ability to capture the human condition, to paint all of her characters in a unique and compelling light, is second to none. Sam Kennedy and Jason West are prime examples, as they are each flawed, complicated, and compelling men. The mystery in this story is very tightly written, so intriguing. A definite "read till the end without putting it down" book. I read loads of mysteries and was still surprised at the reveal in this one. Lanyon also writes locations that are so vivid, they feel like actual characters. With this book, I felt as though I was actually there in the midst of the action - seeing, feeling, smelling, tasting. The Mermaid Murders has become one of my favorite Lanyon books and I eagerly await the next book in the series, early in 2017.

I am a huge fan of audio books and have several favorite narrators. Well, add Kale Williams to the top of that list. He took a story I already love and brought it to an entirely new level of awesome. He voices each of the many characters distinctly, capturing their personalities to a T. Nobody sounded like a caricature, no character's voice got confused with another. The character of Sam Kennedy is quite imposing, and Mr Williams absolutely nailed his voice, his mannerisms, his humanity. He conveyed Jason West's strength and sensibilites with sublime detail. To summarize, Mr Williams acted this story to perfection - smoothly capturing each character's emotions, state of mind, and actions His gripping performance had me starting the audio over again the moment I finished it.I am very happy to report that he has agreed with Josh Lanyon to narrate the next two books in this series. Lucky, lucky are we audiophiles!

Good mystery

This was a good murder mystery, well plotted and well narrated, however I never really connected with Jason and Sam, and wasn't convinced about their romance.
