Publisher's Summary

It came in a plain brown wrapper, no return address: an audiocassette of a soul-lacerating scream, followed by an enigmatic, haunting message delivered in a childlike voice: "Bad love. Bad love. Don't give me the bad love." For psychologist-detective Dr. Alex Delaware, the chant, repeated over and over like a twisted nursery rhyme, is the first intimation that he is about to enter a living nightmare. If Alex fails to discover the escalating pattern of violence and to decipher the twisted logic of the stalker's mind games, he will be the next to die.

Boring

This was unnecessarily graphic in inappropriate places. It lacked excitement and was (except for the dog), a boring, drawn out, uneventful waste of time. The voice of the reader did not add much to the story. This was not a tale, but a passing acknowledgement of something that took place that could have been summed up in 1 sentence. I listened to the end, but the story never redeemed itself in my estimation.

Too much

Interesting, but too many characters and subplots for a audiobook. Not a great narration and the characters are hard to tell apart audibly. Overall, the book is a decent way to pass time, but the climax is frustrating as it's not built up to.
