Publisher's Summary

Robert Mallon has lived for 10 quiet years in affluent Santa Barbara, when an encounter on a beach with a mysterious young woman shatters his peaceful, carefully constructed life. Despite Mallon's desperate attempts, he loses her and becomes obsessed with discovering why. He hires detective Lydia Marks to uncover the secrets of this stranger's life, and what they learn propels them into a terrifying world of sinister secrets and deadly hatreds.
Targeting Mallon is the master hunter Parish, a man with an expert understanding of evil who preys on rich people's desires for dominance and revenge. Mallon is drawn into a lethal struggle with this deadly adversary - and then another, and another, and another.

Exceeded my expectations

I don't know why I wasn't expecting a lot from this book but I was pleasantly surprised. The really bad guys were really bad and the protagonist had enough likable qualities to keep you rooting for him. Maybe it was because the last book I listened to was so bad that this one seemed exceptional. I liked the story, the characters and the author's ability to make me want to continue listening. The narration was excellent too.

Interesting premise...

I enjoyed this book, for the most part, because it was based on an unusual premise... Don't want to spoil it for you. Very well written. Sit back and relax... ignore the far-fetched parts... and the the fact that the narrator's female voices sound a bit like Ronald Reagan... and enjoy the ride.
