Publisher's Summary

A grisly murder. A six-year-old eyewitness. A gun from the grave.
The Profiler's Daughter is a psychologically haunting thriller that combines murder mystery, love triangle, and family intrigue in one satisfying page burner.
Sky Stone was born into the wealth and privilege of Boston's oldest Brahmin family but chooses instead to follow in the footsteps of her deceased father, legendary FBI profiler Monk Stone. In the chilly morning hours before the Boston Marathon, when a beautiful university student is found strangled and mutilated, her body left at the base of Heartbreak Hill, Sky returns from self-imposed exile to investigate. Thirty-six hours into the investigation, Sky's world turns upside down when she is fired from the Homicide team. They pin the murder on an innocent man, forcing Sky into a life-threatening game of cat and mouse with the real killer. From the stately mansions of Beacon Hill to the flat scrubland of central Texas, Sky keeps the reader on a razor's edge, culminating in a no-holds-barred shoot-out.
The Profiler's Daughter, the first in the Sky Stone Thriller series, introduces a moody, enigmatic, and brilliant female sleuth with the fierce bite of Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander. As adeptly written as Martin Cruz Smith's complex Arkady Renko novels, this thriller offers an intriguing plot, richly detailed characters, and an astonishing conclusion guaranteed to leave the listener begging for more.

What a great find

Would you consider the audio edition of The Profiler's Daughter to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the print version. My wife did and told me I had to download Profilers Daughter as my next listen. I didn't need much of a push as I could tell from how she was reacting when she was reading, it was a real page turner. At least there is one thing we still agree on after 25 years of marriage - Profilers Daughter is a great read!


What other book might you compare The Profiler's Daughter to and why?

Defending Jacob


Have you listened to any of Gabrielle de Cuir’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I'm not sure but I will look for others. It was a good performance. As you know if you listen to many books, a poor performance can ruin a great book. That did not happen hear.


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

I didn't want to stop listening. iI was frustrating at times as I listen in my car. When I arrived at my destination I would be frustrated because I had to stop....or I would keep listening as I did one night in my drive way from mi-night to quarter to one!


Any additional comments?

I was impressed with the character development. Including one particular character I did not like. Steffen really made me despise the character. Not because of something they did...just the way the character"s personality came across. My wife said it was because it reminded me of my old boss. She is probably right. Steffen is descriptive - yet does not over do it just to impress us with an excess of words. The story flows nicely and I was never wondering "OK where is she going now and why is she telling me this" without soon getting the answer.

Where does The Profiler's Daughter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the top 5% of my library.


What does Gabrielle de Cuir bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Although the male character's voices were somewhat off, the narration for Sky was right on the mark. I demonstrated a genuine understanding of the regret and angst, as well as the uncertainty, experienced by Sky.


Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the next installment!
