When investigative reporter Peter Webber discovers the remains of a young woman in the old Eastown Theatre, he finds himself pitted against a serial killer who uses the bodies of his victims to recreate medieval visions of hell inside Detroit's landmark ruins. As the body count continues to rise, he and Detective Aundray Rogers must embark upon their own descent into the underworld, one that mirrors the decline of the Motor City, if they're to have any chance of stopping the murderer before it's too late.
With the city deteriorating around them, they learn that the abandoned buildings aren't the only things that have been condemned.

The brightest part of the entire experience was discovering the voice of Gary Tiedemann! He kept me engaged from start to finish.
I have listened to a number of other narrators throughout the years and, in my opinion, the most distracting part of any audiobook is a narrator's "other voices." They tend to pull me out of the plot and make me wish I had opted to read the book instead. David Aaron Baker comes to mind. Which reminds me, is there a word for overacting when it comes to narration? Anyways, Tiedmann's multi-character dialogue was subtle, yet distinctive. His cadence was wonderful. In a word, it was perfect!
As with most thrillers of the like, there are plots twists to be certain. I found them to be fairly predictable. The overall story was not bad. But, to be perfectly honest, it wasn't great either.
I will be giving McBride one more chance to win me over with his writing. As for Tiedemann, I simply need to decide which of his other narrations I want to listen to next!
