Imagantive storyline, with solid plot twists . The narrator did a wonderful job with both pacing and building tension (she seemed to do well with all the character roles while being true to the author's original concept. what I mean by that is that I have frequently fond that narrators interpret characters (especially female characters) that I would have viewed as strong, so that they sound like paranoid or weak-willed individuals who are waiting for a man to rescue them from their miserable life; and I just HATE it when that happens! :) Now for the one thing that irritated me abt the narrator - her voice uh... just went really weird wgen playing the main character under stress; i cant put my finger on it but it is like she drops vowels or something, and it makes the character sound as though severe stress either gives her a speech impedimen or turns her into a half-wit, and then when things calm down she snaps back to normal! VERY ODD especially when u consider the amazing job she does of narration regardless of the character's gender. I purchased the author's next book (Freak) immediately after writing this review and lfinished it in one sitting (i am back editing original review). I enjoy the author's character development and interaction between characters along with plot crescendo & diminuendo development - I feel that as she continues writing she will rapidly become VERY good (following the same well-worn path as one my fav authors of this genre, Harlan Coben).

This book didn't move as quickly as her book "The Butcher" did. The narrator slurs her words a lot and sometimes sounds like she has been drinking and/or has a dental implant. Over all the story line is good. Going to listen to book two now and I am hoping it's a different narrator.
