Publisher's Summary

Police Detective Rebecca Storme, and her husband, veteran Detective Sergeant Peter Storme, both married more to the badge than each other, have inevitable conflict within their marriage, and their careers are put to the test when a psychopathic killer invades their peaceful Southern California community and turns it into a hotbed of fear and outrage.
Rebecca Storme, the only woman in the detective bureau, and the sole member of the Sex Crimes Unit, finds that the Sunrise Killer will not only challenge her career, her marriage, but her very life.
Her husband, Detective Sergeant Storme, has been caught up in the infighting of the police department and city management, and is drawn deeper into his career battles and challenges as the Sunrise Killer makes his appearance in their city. As the Sunrise Killer increases his maniacal assault on the innocent women and children of San Remo, his reach goes far beyond his actual victims and their families. The lives of those dedicated to preserving peace within the city are challenged to the limits, both in their personal lives and in their professional careers.
This award-winning story is fast-moving, often riveting, often disturbing, as the cops are repeatedly challenged by a serial killer who has them all in his tight grip. Will the cops be able to break his grip and stop his horrific killings?

IT WAS WORTH A LISTEN!

Would you consider the audio edition of Roulette to be better than the print version?

ALWAYS IS!


Would you recommend Roulette to your friends? Why or why not?

If they liked mysteries, sure!


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

He actually made this book worth listening to..the writer really should have edited more....is it a crime story.is it a rocky marriage love story...I was bored at times..


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There was some suspense nearer the end...and I did feel bad for the victims...especially the first one....that poor mom!


Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

It was an ok listen, the narrator is pretty good and he helped me get through it...all though it could have been a super exciting mystery there was a lot of conflict with the main characters that took away from the story...and it kind of diminished this books potential...the who done it factor did keep me guessing though!

Thank You Audiobookblast(dot)com

Pretty decent whodunit

Would you recommend Roulette to your friends? Why or why not?

I would. It was a somewhat fun whodunit and I didn't predict the ending.


Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I think so.


Could you see Roulette being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Sure. A movie or miniseries.


Any additional comments?

I think a prequel book would be interesting with more backstory on the characters.
