When an elderly woman is found raped and brutally murdered in San Francisco, Vail heads west to team up with SFPD Inspector Lance Burden and her former task force colleague, Detective Roxxann Dixon. As Vail, Burden, and Dixon follow the killer’s trail in and around San Francisco, the offender continues his rampage, leaving behind clues that ultimately lead them to the most unlikely of places: a mysterious island ripped from city lore whose long-buried, decades-old secrets hold the key to their case. Alcatraz. The Rock. It’s a case that has more twists and turns than the famed Lombard Street…and a novel that Clive Cussler calls “A powerful thriller, brilliantly conceived and written.”
“Karen Vail is my kind of hero and Alan Jacobson is my kind of writer!” (Michael Connelly)

I liked it!
Considering I haven't read the print version of "Inmate 1577" I would have to say yes, I consider the audio version better(forgive my sarcasm). Even if I had read the print version I'd prefer the audio version better because I prefer audio books over print.
Wow, I haven't read too many police procedurals so me, personally, I can only compare it too Michael connely's, "The Black Echo" which might not be that far off-both books involve police searching for a serial killer and both books have a fair amount of "edge of your seat" suspense so ya, I'll stick with that comparison.
Christina did a pretty good job with voices meaning she didn't totally butcher any accents and the men sounded like men and the women sounded like women so she did alright. However, from time to time she did sound a bit monotone but it wasn't so bad that it lessened the audio experience for me. She was O.K.
No, I can't say I was really moved by the book but I did enjoy it and it kept my attention throughout which isn't easy to do considering the length of the book.
Great deal for the price!
another great book in the collection
Great book, looked the tie to the others but still holds it's own. Very action filled and unexpected twists.
