Publisher's Summary

Homicide detective Taylor Jackson thinks she's seen it all in Nashville—from the Southern Strangler to the Snow White Killer. But she's never seen anything as perverse as The Conductor. Once his victim is captured, he contains her in a glass coffin, slowly starving her to death. Only then does he give in to his attraction.
When he's finished, he creatively disposes of the body by reenacting scenes from famous paintings. And similar macabre works are being found in Europe. Taylor teams up with her fiancee, FBI profiler Dr. John Baldwin, and New Scotland Yard detective James "Memphis" Highsmythe, a haunted man who has eyes only for Taylor, to put an end to this horror.
Has the killer gone international with his craft? Or are there two "artists," competing to create the ultimate masterpiece?

The Cold Room Left Me Cold

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I can't decide if it was the story line or the reader that put me off of this audiobook. The story line threw too much right off at you. The reader's voice was annoying. I didn't finish the book.


Has The Cold Room turned you off from other books in this genre?

NO


What didn’t you like about Joyce Bean’s performance?

Tone of voice not appropriate for this story. Sounds sexist, but a man would have served this story better.
