Publisher's Summary

A brilliant and determined FBI medical examiner, she was an expert student of the criminal mind who thought she could face anything.
That was before Wisconsin. Before she saw one of his victims...
The FBI agent had a special code name for his unusual method of torture: Tort 9, the draining of the victim's blood. The newspapers called him the Vampire-Killer. But his own twisted love letters were signed "Teach"... and were addressed to the one woman he wanted most of all: His hunter, his prey, Dr. Jessica Coran.

Badly Written, Horribly Read

The reader is among the worst I have experienced. His phrasing and tempo were amateurish and he mispronounced some very common words. He came across as someone that was trying this for the first time and with poor reading skills to boot.
I had to reconstruct the sentences occasionally to keep the meaning of the text apparent.

The book is gimmick-laden and the characters trite and poorly developed. I kept telling myself that the poor reading performance was degrading the story, but came to realize they deserved one another.

Good writing and characters pull the reader in with interesting and credible situations and plot construction. This book was formulaic and a waste of my time. I read too far into it, hoping it would save itself, to ask for my money back. I suppose it is worth a few bucks to warn others.

If you like gritty crime thrillers, get it.

Would you listen to Killer Instinct again? Why?

I really liked this book. Lately the crime novels I've been reading are more romance than thriller. This one is gritty and the woman doesn't take any s**t.

What did you like best about this story?

It was suspenseful and I enjoyed all the forensic talk. The ending was deeply disturbing and I loved listening to every second of it.

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

He was fantastic! I liked his voice for Jessica. She sounds as you would expect. Someone very intelligent and just wants to cut through the nonsense.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I pretty much did.

- Jennifer "I love dark gritty thrillers, mystery, psychological, police procedural, and horror with the romance set at a minimum to none."
