Publisher's Summary

Homicide Detective Avery Black has been through hell. Once a top criminal defense attorney, she fell from grace when she managed to get a brilliant Harvard professor off - only to watch him kill again. She lost her husband and her daughter, and her life fell apart around her.
Trying to redeem herself, Avery has turned to the other side of the law. Working her way up the ranks, she has reached the rank of homicide detective, to the scorn of her fellow officers, who still remember what she did, and who will always hate her.
Yet even they cannot deny Avery's brilliant mind, and when a disturbing serial killer strikes fear into the heart of Boston, killing girls from elite colleges, it is Avery they turn to. It is Avery's chance to prove herself, to finally find the redemption she craves. And yet, as she is soon to find out, Avery has come up against a killer as brilliant and daring as she.
In this game of psychological cat and mouse, women are dying with mysterious clues, and the stakes could not be higher. A frantic race against time leads Avery through a series of shocking and unexpected twists - culminating in a climax that even Avery could not imagine.

Good mystery

I listened to this book. The narrator was excellent. The plot was good and very well written. Characters well developed. Avery, the female former criminal defense lawyer turned detective, is a strong, intelligent, complicated woman. She endures the macho dislike of her fellow officers who blame her for the death of her partner in a previous case. She solves the case in spite how they treat her because she uses her mind and intelligence. I listened non-stop to the entire book beginning to end.
The author has the ability to make some of the characters so real that they made me dislike them intensely.
Good book!

The book takes place in Boston but, the characters are all British. Why? Doesn't make sense and was distracting.

Awful narration

American setting and story but very, very British narration doesn't work at all. A shame.

Cause to kill

I really didn't like the narrator of this book. Had to give up after an hour.
