Publisher's Summary

Three massacres, two detectives, one writer, zero answers.
Freelancer Kendall Jennings writes fluff pieces for women's magazines. When a horrific massacre occurs at Café Amaretto, she scores an exclusive interview with a survivor. Suddenly, she's the go-to reporter for the crime.
Investigating veteran detective Lance O'Grady and his partner, Trip, are tasked with finalizing the open and shut case. Seven people are dead at the hands of an unprovoked killer wielding an axe.
Then another mass killing occurs. This time, arson and 10 eldercare facility residents die in the blaze. Then it happens again. Even more shocking: a mother with a gun goes on a rampage at a family birthday party. The crimes have no motive, and Lance O'Grady is left wondering how evil can strike twice in such a short space of time.The only connection is that the killers share one odd detail: none have a murderer's profile. Ordinary citizens suddenly just became killers.
Drawn deeper inside the crime investigation, Kendall finds herself not only clashing with O'Grady but also struggling with old demons. What Kendall and O'Grady don't realize is they are caught in a plot far greater reaching than just these crimes. Someone is sending a message. And unless they can decipher the meaning, very soon, many more will die.
Deadly Messengers, a pause-resisting thriller, poses the question: Does a killer lurk inside everyone? The answer may prove more frightening than the crimes.
Narrated by Anne JohnstonBrown, winner of the 2012 Audible Female Voice Award.

The scariest stories.......

are those that are possible. This is one of those stories. Is there a killer lurking inside us? Can our dark side be released by a common drug? This book explores that possibility with terrifying realness. Is the person in line behind you someone who could suddenly explode, drawing a gun, or worse, an axe?

Great story with a fabulous narrator

I first read Deadly Messengers in it's infancy and loved it then. I'm an audiobook lover and was excited when I discovered the book in audio. The story opens with a powerful scene in which a young man is set on murder, and he has no control over it. Susan has done an excellent job of keeping the reader in suspense. As each killer in the story approaches the intended victim's, I found myself holding my breath, even having already read the book. An added bonus to the story is the narrator, Anne Johnstonbrown, who has long been one of my favorites. Don't hesitate to read or listen to this story.
