Publisher's Summary

Two personalities, two attitudes, two goals, two methods - one darkness.
Tony Hooper stands in shadow across the street, one amongst many in the crowd of curiosity-hounds gathered to watch a monster's release. Seventeen years after Mitchell Norton, the devil, terrorized Algonquin, Illinois on a spree of kidnapping, torture and murder, the authorities release the butcher from psychiatric prison.
Tony longs to charge across the street to destroy Norton - no remorse - as if stepping on a cockroach. Only sheer force of will prevents his doing so.
The devil walks the world again. What shall Tony do about it? Aye, what indeed.
After all, this is what Tony does. It's who he is. The devil himself long ago made Tony into this hunter of monsters. What a sweet twist of fate this is, that he may still, finally, administer justice.
Will FBI Special Agent Linda Monroe stop him? She owes him her life, so how can she possibly put an end to his?
Two men are inexorably linked in the wake of devastation, ripped from the comfortable world they know and thrown into a dark place previously unimaginable. One is driven to evil, to seek a world where unfathomable misery and unbearable pain are the rules of the realm, where the look of death is upon all who practice the wicked craft, and it is a joyful grin, indeed. The other is driven to a gray path where he seeks merely to destroy such incomprehensible evil, to do what the law is not always able to do, to remove from the world the men who become monsters.

Awful narration!

I couldn’t get past the first few chapters. The reading as the “bad guy” just made me cringe. I’ll return it and get the print version.

has you clinging to the edge of your seat!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would definitely recommend this audiobook to friend. It's very well spoken and one hell of a story!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Tony Hooper, he's the guy you want to root for the entire book!

What does Kevin Scollin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Kevin Scollin brings an intensity to the book. He knows how to capture the 'voice' of each character.

Any additional comments?

This audiobook sucked me in from the first chapter! At first, I thought the format of jumping back and forth between different years would bother me but it all made sense! While a thriller, there were definitely parts that tugged at my heart strings. Overall, I loved this audiobook and can't wait for the sequel!!
