Publisher's Summary

Newport Beach, California actuary Liz Matthews discovers counting dead people for a living can be murder when the bodies start multiplying. Liz builds her life around things she can count on: numbers, her father, and her cop boyfriend, Jack. Order is disrupted when she literally stumbles upon the latest victim in a string of brutal rapes.
As she helps and befriends the rape victim, order continues to unravel when she receives a shocking phone call from her mom. The mother she'd told everyone was dead. Not only that, Mom wants Liz to find Liz's half-sister. Trouble is, Liz didn't know she had a half-sister.
But first, Liz finds a freshly dead body, then uncovers a twenty-year-old murder. A Mardi Gras mask connects the serial rapist, her missing sister, and the murders. Armed with a black belt in mathematics, she uses intuitive and analytic skills to unearth a trail of blackmail and betrayal. Meanwhile her relationship with Jack splinters and even more bodies turn up that need counting.
For Mature Audiences Only: Explicit language and situational violence. Must be 18 years of age to purchase.

Calculated Risk

Unfortuantely there weren't any reviews when I choose this audiobook. Let me save you some unbearable listening time. The whole audiobook was read in a very fast, "I'm going to a fire" tone. I actually found myself tuning most of it out. Anything else by this Author and this Speaker, I'm running in the opposite direction.

Dreadful!

This was a dreadful reading with stupid, distracting sound effects. Lead narrator reads at breakneck pace. Either act out the performance with a talented full cast and story enhancing sound effects or have one great narrator read the story. Lead narrator needs to learn about pace & inflection. Worst audible book I have heard.
