Publisher's Summary

When the two strangers turn up at Rowena Cooper's isolated Colorado farmhouse, she knows instantly that it's the end of everything. For the two haunted and driven men, on the other hand, it's just another stop on a long and bloody journey. And they still have many miles to go, and victims to sacrifice, before their work is done.
For San Francisco homicide detective Valerie Hart, their trail of corpses - women abducted, tortured and left with a seemingly random series of objects inside them - has brought her from obsession to the edge of physical and psychological destruction. And she's losing hope of making a breakthrough before that happens.But the slaughter at the Cooper farmhouse didn't quite go according to plan. There was a survivor, Rowena's 10-year-old daughter Nell, who now holds the key to the killings. Injured, half-frozen, terrified, Nell has only one place to go. And that place could be even more terrifying than what she's running from.

Outstanding narrator, horrifyingly good crime

Where does The Killing Lessons rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the very best

What did you like best about this story?

I've read this novel before, and rank it among the very best crime I've read. The author wields language and perspective to heighten the fear and urgency of a time-sensitive investigation.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely! But it wasn't harmed by breaking it up.

Any additional comments?

The narrator was exceptional. By altering the tone and cadence of her voice, she was able to differentiate between characters and states of mind, without ever becoming cheesy or overacting. I'll be looking into her other books for sure.

Engrossing

What an engrossing book; so well written and the narration with all the characters was excellent. A disturbing insight into evil and the minds of the characters. Highly recommended for those with a strong stomach who want an insight into how people develop.
