Publisher's Summary

From the author of the acclaimed thriller novels Jack Wakes Up and Young Junius comes In Broad Daylight, a taut psychological whodunnit with Stieg Larsson's intrigue and Karin Slaughter's raw insights on strange communities.
FBI agent Jess Harding treks back to Anchorage to hunt down a sadistic killer who's reemerged from a five-year hiatus--a killer who has already slipped her grasp once before. The endless days of an Alaskan summer can't thwart the fiend's plans as he slashes his way through the rural community, where everyone knows your name and always distrusts the outside. With the help of Oscar Linstrom, an old colleague who wants to be more than friends, Jess attempts to immerse herself in the area's culture, leading her to a strange rural village inhabited by Russian Old Believers hell-bent on protecting their way of life. Even the locals are outsiders to the Old Believers, and Jess needs a safehaven in the glare of daylight because a blood-stained message left at the scene of the most recent murder says Jess is no longer the hunter--but the hunted.
Seth Harwood, named a Best of 2010 author by George Pelecanos, returns with this terrifying daydream of an expansive Great North that offers no place to hide.

Needed a female narrator

I have nothing against male narrators who read female characters and vice versa. If there is a difference between the two, I'm all in. That didn't happen with this listen.

As good as this mystery is, and it is very good, I found myself not always sure who was talking. It added an air of confusion to an otherwise good mystery.

5 stars

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

Yes, I would. Seth has an easy voice to listen too. It doesn't put you to sleep and keeps you engaged.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, in Broad Daylight kept me on the edge of my seat and is a definite page-turner. I loved the character development of FBI agent Jessica Harding. Agent Harding in assigned to hunt down a killer who has returned after a hiatus of several years. The story takes you from California to Alaska and is full of action.

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

Listen to the sample and you will understand. I can't say that I enjoy listening to many narrators but Seth is different. Perhaps since he wrote and narrates the book, he is better able to place emphasis where it needs to be.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I can't say too much here as that would lead to spoilers but the unique way that some of the victims die.
