Publisher's Summary

Emma didn't know how long he hid, silent and unmoving, in the large Victorian wardrobe to the side of her single bed. She didn't know how long he peered out, salivating and drooling, between the two heavy dark oak doors, and watched, mesmerized, as she slowly drifted into fitful sleep. She didn't know what time he pushed the doors open and crept towards her in the drab grey darkness of the night.
Detective Inspector Gravel finds himself floundering when a local 19-year-old university student is abducted and imprisoned by a sadistic serial killer, who has already tortured and killed five young women.

Totally. Awesome.

Any additional comments?

This was one of the best serial killer books I've listened to in a while, and I freaking love these books! A fantastic mystery, good characters, some sudden twists and a satisfying ending. I liked every minute of it. Jake Urry is endlessly fantastic at audio book narration.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Portraits of the Dead

This was a very creepy but great book! I was glad I got a chance to listen to it. I loved it. It was scary and I was pulling for Emma the whole book. I was hoping she made it. I think the characters were believable in this book and the plot was scary. "This review copy audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost."
