This is exactly the kind of story I have been looking for and honestly wish there were more of. Real life mystery with a bit of the supernatural thrown in. Half police procedural, half things that go bump in the night. Very worthy of a credit, in my honest opinion.
With R.C. Bray narrating you almost can't go wrong, but the authors writing style, which was well above par, only added to the package. This was the first listen in a long time to really hold my attention and left me wanting more (in a good way). I almost didn't want it to end.

This book is very bizarre. It is a murder mystery but it is also an occult book about practicing good witches and spells and channeling the dead and voodoo dolls and evil and murder. Hmmm, not normally my cup of tea BUT I have to say that I was really engrossed in this book.
There are three murders of teenagers, all missing their heads.
The homicide detective (Garrett) is skeptical when he's approached by a woman practicing white witchcraft. He has difficulty buying into her beliefs until the night she sneaks atropine into a glass of wine and he has visions that he's able to prove are true.
This book is wild and I found myself siding with the detective right to the very end. This is the same author who writes the Huntress/FBI series, which I love. This book is very different than that series but her writing style remains the same and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
R C Bray does a superb job narrating.
I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED this book. If you found this review helpful please indicate so.

I've listened to quite a few books on audible over the last few years and to say this is one of the best ones I've listened to is a big thing for me to say.
To make a great book it's 50% the story that makes it and 50% the narrator - for me this book came in at 101%. I generally only listen to RC Bray books as he is hands down the best narrator on Audible and the books he decides to read are some of the best - RC Bray added the voice effects needed to make this brilliant story come alive and I do not think anyone else would have done better.
The story itself envelopes you in the mysterious world of witch craft and Satanism but with the real world direction of a thriller. The atmosphere the story and narrator creates is electric and tense and I could not wait to listen to it when I had time. The characters are nicely balanced with relationships that between them that feel like they would and could all intertwine in the real world. However the end play came too fast for me but overall it doesn't take away from the story. I'm hoping that there is another book to come following these characters and story line and of course read by Mr Bray.
A must listen on anyone's list.

This book surprised me. It's well written with a clever mix of crime and the occult/fantasy. I found suspension of disbelief easy and the story fascinating. Something out of the ordinary for murder mystery lovers. Kind of like Charmed but way more serious.
