I loved the story as Heather is a great author! The narrator, not so much. She had a whiney voice and it just sounded bad. Other than that it was great!
Luke Thompson is a police detective who solved a string of serial killer cases, and then sought a more peaceful life as a detective with the police in Mendocino County, California.
Unfortunately, after a deceptive lull, he finds himself hunting a serial killer again, someone who dresses his victims as figures from fairy tales. He also finds love, in the person of an FBI profiler
Then tragedy strikes too close to home.
Luke is thrown into a tailspin, but the serial killer is still at work.
Rae Hatting, an FBI agent who is done, she thinks, with homicide investigations, is called back in for this one. She's got a double task, finding the killer, and pulling Thompson out of his funk.
It's a complicated story, with complicated characters. Everyone has a thornier background than you initially suspect. Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses, but both the Mendocino police and the FBI are shown as made up of people who at their core are dedicated to protecting the public and doing their jobs. It's ultimately positive without being syrupy. I'm not sure I was really up for a serial killer story when I started reading this, but in the end I'm glad I read it, and will probably read more from Osborne.
I think I bought this book, but this is one of those occasions when I honestly don't really remember.

What didn’t you like about Flora Plumb’s performance?
Appalling, scratch old lady voice for all the characters. Lack of emotion. Not what I am used to from an Audible performance.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
I don't know, I gave up after a short time as I couldn't bear to listen to the voice
Any additional comments?
As one of your many thousands of visually impaired readers, we have no choice, we have to listen to books. Your standards of readers are usually so enjoyable. I won't be buying any more of this authors books.
