Publisher's Summary

For three years, Detective Jude Fontaine was kept from the outside world. Held in an underground cell, her only contact was with her sadistic captor, and reading his face was her entire existence. Learning his every line, every movement, and every flicker of thought is what kept her alive.
After her experience with isolation and torture, she is left with a fierce desire for justice - and a heightened ability to interpret the body language of both the living and the dead. Despite colleagues' doubts about her mental state, she resumes her role at Homicide. Her new partner, Detective Uriah Ashby, doesn't trust her sanity, and he has a story of his own he'd rather keep hidden. But a killer is on the loose, murdering young women, so the detectives have no choice: they must work together to catch the madman before he strikes again. And no one knows madmen like Jude Fontaine.

Well, that was weird!

The Body Reader is a very, very dark story. Audible classifies it as a police procedural, and in a way it is. It also has strong elements of a psychological thriller. It is...interesting if not especially enjoyable. The novel certainly kept me interested until the end. Emily Sutton-Smith does a nice job of narrating a difficult story.

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

It made me think about all of the people out there who have never been found...

Any additional comments?

I am usually a fan of sick, twisted, horror thrillers. This is not that kind of book. While it is a psychological thriller, it does not scare you. It is an excellent study of what can happen when someone has been abducted for 3 years, and how they come to terms with it. There are excellent side characters, especially her partner in crime. Enjoyed this book from beginning to end!
