Publisher's Summary

He performs his profane ceremony in a wooded Minneapolis park, anointing his victims, then setting the bodies ablaze. He has already claimed three lives, and he won't stop there. Only this time there is a witness. But she isn't talking.
Enter Kate Conlan, former FBI agent turned victim/witness advocate. Not even she can tell if the reluctant witness is a potential victim or something more troubling still. Her superiors are interested only because the latest victim may be the daughter of Peter Bondurant, an enigmatic billionaire. When Peter pulls strings, Special Agent John Quinn gets assigned to the case. But the FBI's ace profiler of serial killers is the last person Kate wants to work with, not with their troubled history. Now she faces the most difficult role of her career - and her life. For she's the only woman who has what it takes to stop the killer... and the one woman he wants next.

Damsel In Distress Romance Torture Novel. Ho-Hum

Never listened to Tami Hoag before, but kept getting recommendations from Audible. Soooo.... I figured that with David Colacci reading it might not be aimed entirely at a bodice buster market.

Nope, wrong. Square jawed FBI super-star but tragically-at-war-with-his-inner-angst-hunk John Quinn, and drop-dead-gorgeous-blonde FBI agent turned fiesty victim/witness-advocate Kate Conlan are THROWN together in Minneapolis to look too far-and-wide (when they should have looked near-and-dear) for the ghastly cretin, THE CREMATOR. And (startle, surprise) they seem to ignite old embers of a long ago love which - inexplicably to me - went cool in Washington.

Is there a surprise anywhere in all of this? Well yeah, Hoag's bad-guy is made so predictable to make room for multi-page make-up sex scenes that are a sort of squishy fem-porn.

Okay, this wasn't aimed at male readers. And judging by Hoag's sales, there are lots of ladies who get off on this stuff. So if you do, and like your love rough... Hey, enjoy. Me? Not so much.

Oh Colacci reads well, keeps the characters in their own spaces, but lapses from time to time into a Scott Brick impersonation. I don't think that's a recommendation, but lots of folks do... So, it's your call. Mine is to never listen or read another Hoag.
