Publisher's Summary

Inside a maximum-security prison cell, Abby Maddox is serving 20 years for slashing Seattle PD officer Jerry Isaac's throat during the harrowing capture of her former lover, serial killer Ethan Wolfe. To the demented fans, lunatics, and creeps on the outside, she is a celebrity. But to Jerry, now a private investigator whose scarred neck and tortured speech are daily reminders of Abby's vicious attack, she alone may be the key to solving a new wave of murders. Because this killer has been sending her love letters, and carving a message on the victims' bodies: Free Abby Maddox.
With the help of intuitive criminology student Danny Mercy, Puget Sound State professor Sheila Tao, and seasoned detective Mike Torrance, Jerry must coax the shattering truth from isolated, dangerous Abby - before her number one fan takes another life in the name of a killer's perverted idea of justice.

Somewhat predictable

This is the only book I have listened to from Jennifer Hillier. I didn't listen to the first and found unless I wanted more of the back story to some of the characters I didn't need to. It stood on it's own. The book was entertaining and overall it kept my interest but it was somewhat predictable. I had figured out half way thru who was helping the killer achieve what she was trying to achieve. I found it somewhat irritating that the woman behind bars, 'Abby', was involved in several different relationships, with different sexes, who would virtually risk their jobs because of wanting to please her. So that had me at the 'oh geez' once or twice. The narrator is OK. She did her best to perform the book just found the male characters grating on my nerves but essentially I find most female narrators giving me that same reaction. Was good. I don't have any desire to listen to the first book tho. That might say something. So perhaps if you are looking to get into a series, you should start there.

A worthy follow-up to Creep.

Finished this in one sitting. Skilful focus shift in character development of some of the more minor characters introduced in 1st book. Very talented author and I would say the same for the narrator witj only one caveat - her voice when she portrays main character under stress sounds unnatural, almost infantile and grating. that said, she does the best job of cross-gender voice acting (does male and female voicesequally well) of ANY narrator I have ever heard.
