Publisher's Summary

Homicide detective, Mac Jackson, is on a collision course with a civilian in his hunt for a killer. A lack of evidence is leaving him frustrated, and with the body count rising, he questions his own ethics when he considers risking the life of an innocent woman to put the killer within reach. The stakes are high if his gamble fails.
Jessica Croft has begun a new life in San Francisco, ninety miles from the sinister secrets and madness that destroyed her family. She hopes to find tranquility, and maybe even love, but her chance for happiness is threatened when she finds herself the target of a madman. Unwilling to live a life of fear, Jessica takes a bold risk to draw him out; unaware of the trap he has already set for her.

Not a great read

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I only got through three quarters of this book - the characters are too shallow and predictable and the language is clipped and unrealistic. I would not recommend this book.

Would you be willing to try another book from Jenny Hilborne? Why or why not?

Probably not as I did not enjoy the sing-song writing style.

Would you listen to another book narrated by David Gilmore?

Yes

Did Madness and Murder inspire you to do anything?

No

Any additional comments?

I would not recommend this book.

Riveting

Would you listen to Madness and Murder again? Why?

I would absolutely listen to this book again because it kept me on the edge of my seat.

What other book might you compare Madness and Murder to and why?

The psychological suspense felt just a tad like Silence of the Lambs.

Have you listened to any of David Gilmore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

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

Yes, but unfortunately I had to break it up.

Any additional comments?

The book was intense and not overly graphic. Strong characters with a lot of passion. I would definitely recommend this book. I can't wait to listen to more of Jenny Hilborne's books.

Long winded

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

was not one of my favourite books I found it a little too long

Who was your favorite character and why?

Probably the character of Jessica

Did David Gilmore do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

I am afraid the accent of the New Zealand character Alex was really off putting

Did Madness and Murder inspire you to do anything?

Yes I think I might be wary about reading another book

Any additional comments?

The book 'Cry Baby' had had several really good reviews, might be tempted to try it !
