Publisher's Summary

One man's crusade to protect the children.
"Stay away" - Those are the two words written on the forehead of every pedophile murdered in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Joshua Theaker is tasked with finding the killer whose killing methods involve strange weapons. Theaker and local law enforcement find it hard to agree on where the trail goes, while the local FBI is distracted by child kidnappings. For Theaker, there is a pattern among the victims. But just when Theaker thinks he is getting closer to the killer, he strikes again. And again.

Intriguing, Compelling & Suspenseful - Must Read!

I was instantly drawn into this book from the first chapter. It is an excellent story although at the same time it is very disturbing as it is based on true events. The story and characters are very well written and developed which draws you in and makes you feel as if you part of the story. The author is very descriptive with his writing, allowing you to develop a picture of what is happening and what each character may look like. The story is fast paced, with plenty of twists and turns and does not give you the opportunity to lose interest. I felt that I was always wanting more and was disappointed when it ended.

Brian Troxell did an excellent job with his performance of this book. He has great pace, tone and inflection. He adds to the suspense in this book and brings the story to life in your minds' eye. He portrays each character with emotion, allowing you to picture in your imagination what they may look like and makes you feel as if you know the characters personally. Overall, I enjoyed this book and look forward to more work from Mr. Muthiah and Mr. Troxell.

Gripping story about child abductions in Bay Area

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Tell My Dad is a quick and smooth 5 hour read centering on child and young adult abductions and college-age girl victimization. Along the way there is a Superman vigilante-type character who kills perpetrators and leaves the words "stay away". There are also a myriad of additional characters, including police officers, family members, and a college student investigating the abductions. It's a busy read.

Would you recommend Tell My Dad to your friends? Why or why not?

I gave this book a 3 due to the incredulity of the setup. According to this book, there is at least one victimization every day in a metro area, and Superman manages to figure out and kill every perpetrator. This story would have been better if set up in a fantastical setting, rather than starting out with the statement that the book was inspired by true events.

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

I really enjoyed narrator Brian Troxell's voice--smooth and enthusiastic without being over the top. I did not particularly like his feminine voices or ethnic voices which is the reason for 4 stars.

Do you think Tell My Dad needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yeah, go the fantastical route and put the vigilante and Samantha in a series together.

Any additional comments?

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I think Ram Muthiah did an honorable job his first book out!
