Publisher's Summary

Determined to leave her old life behind, retired assassin Leine Basso accepts a job working security at one of television's most popular reality shows, Serial Date. When a contestant is found dead in the prop closet, it appears the killer is one of the "bachelors" on the show - an ex-con billed as a serial killer - but the detective in charge of the case isn't so sure.
When Leine's estranged daughter is abducted by a man claiming to be the real killer, she's forced to rely on old skills to find her, and must come to terms with who she really is. She soon realizes the murderer may be a grisly remnant from her past and she'll need to use all of her cunning to stop him…and rescue her daughter.

Great Satirical Suspense Novel

What made the experience of listening to Serial Date the most enjoyable?

The audio quality was very high, and the fast paced story was suspenseful and satirical at the same time.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Absolutely. The combination of action, personal stakes, and just the right amount of romantic interest really held my attention. I loved the sardonic humor.

What about James Killavey’s performance did you like?

The narrator enunciated very clearly, his voice was moderated well and his expressiveness was entertaining but not distracting.

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

Yes, I almost looked forward to my 40 minute commute!

Any additional comments?

I can't wait for the next audio book by DV Berkom!

Great Action with a Dark Sense of Humor

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes! The story keeps up the pace from the beginning to the end. With this countries strange obsession with reality TV shows, why not take it one step more! Creepy with laugh out loud moments. I love Leine, she is a kick butt character.

What other book might you compare Serial Date to and why?

Dave Barry or Carl Hiaasen's Sick Puppy (one of my favorite books) DV Berkom has the same fast pace and wacky characters that keep you listening.

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

No, I haven't. It takes about 10 minutes for him to really take off with the characters and get into their heads.

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

Both, which is great. DV really fleshes out her characters to make them come alive in the eyes of the listener. Even sub characters you develop a love/hate relationship with them.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait to hear more audiobooks in this series from DV Berkom.
