Publisher's Summary

Daniel Pell is a contemporary Charles Manson. A petty criminal with a history of anti-social behaviour, he had a group of women living with him in a quasi cult in central California. Eight years ago, he and another man viciously slaughtered a family for no apparent reason, though the three women in his "family" were absolved of any part in the deaths. Now, present day, Pell has escaped and interrogator and analyst Kathryn Dance must find out where he is and why he's staying near the prison he escaped from.

Good listen but definitely not Lincoln

Not as good as Lincoln Rhyme but a very nice story with some good twists, but felt like the author was trying to hard at the end. got too much at the end, story could have finished a half hour earlier

Deaver does it again!

At the completion of the final scene all of my initial thoughts about this mature, scratchy narrator had faded away. Drifted away with the plot lines and suspense created by Deaver, and indeed Twomey.

Another great Audible audio book which I'll listen to again and again.

Just when you thought it was safe....

Fantastic. The only word to describe this audio book. Well read with suitable definitions between characters, and there are a lot of them. I was totally engrossed with the twisting plot which is quietly subtle and then... wham! a bolt from the blue. The book is long enough to allow the listener to have got to know the 'cast' and delivered with precision. An excellent read and I found myself extending the time on my sleep timer so I could listen to the next chapter, and the next.

Really good.

I was dubious about the new character Kathryn Dance as I'm a big fan of Licoln Rhyme but I really liked this story. Her character is believable and likeable. My only critisism would be the constant references to kenesics (her speciality), it's obviously how her character thinks but it can get a bit annoying (although interesting). The villain is also very good in this book and I hope that people like him don't exist in the real world! I liked the narrator but wanted her to be a little more dynamic at some points but all in all it's a great story.
