Publisher's Summary

When a midshipman plunges six stories to his death, the U.S. Naval Academy begins investigating an apparent suicide. But there's a bizarre twist: the young man's body is found wearing undergarments belonging to Midshipman Julie Markham, a senior at the academy.Julie's father, Ev, an Annapolis graduate who is now a professor there, fears his daughter will be blamed by the "Darkside" - the bureaucracy that wants to protect the academy at all costs from scandal. Then there's another death, and the beautiful grounds and impregnable traditions of Annapolis are revealed as the hiding place for a relentless predator who can no longer control an impulse to kill.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending, I was dumbstruck.

Any additional comments?

I hesitated on this book for a long time because of some of the negative comments that were left. I guess it everybody's own taste but I thought this was absolutely fantastic and will probably listen to this one again.

Talk about edge of your seat!

This was THE most exciting audio book I've yet heard.

The narrator Dick Hill, even though not the best I've heard at producing distinctly different voices for the various characters, his level of intensity throughout the story in general was excellent.

The story...hmmm, well, since I was in the Navy myself, was very interesting.

This audio book was so intense, it kept me up nearly all night because I couldn't turn it off.
