Publisher's Summary

By day, Harper Cole trades commodities over the Internet from his isolated Mississippi farmhouse. At night, he is systems operator of E.R.O.S., an exclusive, sexually explicit online service that guarantees total anonymity to its rich and famous clientele.
But now someone has penetrated E.R.O.S.'s state-of-the-art security...someone who has brutally murdered six celebrated women. Each time, the weapon and the city are different. And each time, the killer has claimed the same horrifying trophy.
For Harper Cole, who has suddenly become the prime suspect, there is only one way to lure the elusive madman into the open. But Harper Cole has dangerous sexual secrets of his own. His daring plan will place everything and everyone he loves in the path of a brilliant, unstoppable killer.

Critic Reviews

"If you thought that stalking a killer on the Internet had been done to death in books and bad movies, this one will have you pushing the reload button on your browser." (Amazon.com review)
"While Cole's obsession over this guilty secret makes him less than likable at times, a nailbiting climax erases any doubts about his character-and any lingering questioning about the storytelling abilities of Iles, who here uses rich first-person narration and clever plotting to tell a sizzler of a thriller."

Held my attention!

I have to admit it, the man can write! This one held me until the end. I loved all of the characters (loved to hate a couple of them!) and the plot had plenty of twists. My husband and I both listened to this one and both thoroughly enjoyed it. One caveat- please read the premise of the book. If you are offended by sex in audiobooks, or hate dark murder mysteries, don't download this one. If on the other hand you love well written dark mysteries well read by a pro, enjoy!

A Hidden Gem!

If you could sum up Mortal Fear in three words, what would they be?

Scary, Spine-tingling (Is that one word or two?), Unique

What other book might you compare Mortal Fear to and why?

This book was really unique, I can't make a comparison.

Which scene was your favorite?

***Spoiler**** When Harper started talking to the killer on the computer.

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

I pretty much did.

Any additional comments?

Great Book! Even though the technology is ten + years old, the book is still edgy and relevant. Highly recommended.
