So much more than a thriller

Macabre Desecration Thriller Rocks
It is number 2 on my list of top audiobooks.
Blake Daniel was fantastic. A tortured man with a beautiful soul, running away from his calling in life. I laughed out loud at his dry sense of humour and cannot wait to see him appear in more of J. F. Penn's fantastic novels.
Rosalind Ashford brought the characters to life through accent and pulling me into the story. Her way of connecting with the characters was fascinating and I could hear the raw emotion in her voice as she read chapter 14. That was one of the best chapters in the book!
I laughed at Blake Daniel's dry sense of humour and I cried, sobbed actually while sitting on the train home from work as I listened to chapter 14. I don't want to give what happens away but this was such a profound and deeply moving part of J. F. Penn's work. Lastly, I blanched quite a bit at the desecration and felt angry with the nasty inhumane characters. I wanted to help Jamie get out of danger and see her bring them to justice for the horrific crimes they committed.
I absolutely loved this audiobook and found that I literally could not stop listening. I was pulled into Jamie's world and as confronting as some of the events were in the story, I loved her and her gritty determination.This would have been a fantastic read, but the audiobook brings this story to life in a vivid way.
