Publisher's Summary

He surfaced two years ago. Then he disappeared.
But Detective Angie Pallorino hasn't forgotten the violent rapist who left a distinctive calling card - crosses etched into the flesh of his victim's foreheads. When a comatose Jane Doe is found in a local cemetery, sexually assaulted, mutilated, and nearly drowned, Angie is struck by the eerie similarities to her earlier unsolved rapes. Could he be back?
Then the body of a drowned young woman, also bearing the marks of the serial rapist, floats up in the Gorge, and the hunt for a predator becomes a hunt for a killer. Assigned to the joint investigative task force, Angie is more than ready to prove that she has what it takes to break into the all-male homicide division. But her private life collides with her professional ambitions when she's introduced to her temporary partner, James Maddocks - a man she'd met just the night before in an intense, anonymous encounter.
Together, Angie and Maddocks agree to put that night behind them. But as their search for the killer intensifies, so does their mutual desire. And Angie's forays into the mind of a monster shake loose some unsettling secrets about her own past. How can she fight for the truth when it turns out her whole life is a lie?

Intense suspense (and graphic sex)

Loreth Anne White writes wonderful suspense novels in which she always includes several extremely graphic sexual encounters. This is the 5th novel of hers I have read. The Drowned Girls crosses several genre lines. Audible classifies this book as modern detective mystery/thriller which is fair. It could also be classified as romance suspense, psychological thriller, police procedural, or suspense mystery/thriller. In any case it is a well written intense suspense novel with well defined characters. Author White includes an embarrassing (to the protagonist) opening scene in this novel that reminds me of an almost identical scene in the first show of the first season of the Grey's Anatomy ABC-TV show. Narration is superb.

Excellent Story

Any additional comments?

The story line is intense and kept me on the edge of my chair. Angie was a flawed and complex character. I look forward to reading more of this author. This is my first audible book in which the narration detracted from my overall enjoyment of listening to the book. Her voice inflections seem more appropriate to a newscast not telling a story. Her "voices" were also distracting for me. Given the choice, I would not listen to her again.
