Every murder tells a story. Some stories never end....
In a remote Northern Vermont town, college student Rachel Rath is being watched. She can feel the stranger's eyes on her, relentless and possessive. And she's sure the man watching her is the same man who killed her mother and father years ago: Ned Preacher, a serial rapist and murderer who gamed the system to get a light sentence. Now he's free.
Detective Frank Rath adopted Rachel, his niece, after the shocking murder of her parents when she was a baby. Ever since, Rath's tried to protect her from the true story of her parents' deaths. But now Preacher is calling Rath to torment him. He's threatening Rachel and plotting cruelties for her, of the flesh and of the mind. When other girls are found brutally murdered and a woman goes missing, Rath and Detective Sonja Test must untangle the threads that tie these new crimes and some long-ago nightmares together. Soon they will learn that the truth is more perverse than anyone could guess, rife with secrets, cruel desires, and warped, deadly loyalty.
Mesmerizing, startling, and intricately plotted, The Names of Dead Girls builds relentlessly on its spellbinding premise, luring listeners into its dark and macabre mystery, right to its shocking end.

Very good procedural...
This book really held my attention. The publisher's summary does an excellent job setting up the plot.
In this book the protagonist, Frank Rath is fearful for his daughter's safety. The man who murdered her parents has been released from prison. Up until recently she hadn't even known they had been murdered, she had thought they had died in an accident. Rath had been in a hotel room with a woman when he was supposed to be at his sister's helping her out with his birthday dinner. Instead he found his sister and brother in law murdered and his niece in her crib. Rath adopted his niece.
This book is full of high tension cat and mouse ?games? Someone's watching. Someone is doing more killing and a woman goes missing who was a victim of the freed murderer. She survived last time , will she survive again?
The story seems to be so straight forward. I really thought it was so predictable and so easy. Guess again, I was totally wrong and totally floored!
Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job narrating.

As big a surprise as the first.
even though, after listening to the first book in the series, I was expecting a twistat the end, I was still surprised by what and how the story turned out. this writer writes his characters very well. The narrator was a little strange, kind of like listening to Charlie Sheen read the book. Overall though, it was a great listen.
