Publisher's Summary

It begins with a chilling phone call to Casey Woods. And ends with another girl dead.
College-age girls with long red hair. Brutally murdered, they're posed like victims in a film noir. Each crime scene is eerily similar to the twisted fantasy of a serial offender now serving thirty years to life - a criminal brought to justice with the help of Forensic Instincts.
Call. Kill. Repeat. But the similarities are more than one psychopath's desire to outdo another. As more red haired victims are added to the body count, it becomes clear that each one has been chosen because of a unique connection to Casey - a connection that grows closer and closer to her.
Now the Forensic Instincts team must race to uncover the identity of a serial killer before his ever tightening circle of death closes in on Casey as the ultimate target. As the stalker methodically moves in on his prey, his actions make one thing clear: he knows everything about Casey. And Casey realizes that this psychopath won't stop until he makes sure she's dead.

Worst narration I ever heard.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

NARRATOR started the story in an annoying sing-song style. If the story hadn't been so great, I would have stopped listening and returned the book. About halfway through the book, the action begins to get more intense, and the narration improved. Once the suspense decreased after catching the killers, the sing-song style returned to the narration. This book would be greatly improved with a new Narrator. I would suggest Susan Ericksen.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ryan is my favorite character. I love to see the new inventions he creates in each book, and how he decides to use them to catch the villains. His smart aleck replies are very amusing. The developing relationship between him and Claire is also interesting and adds to the romances found in Ms. Kane's novels.

How could the performance have been better?

Someone from the Audible Publisher's House should have listened to the first hour of the recording. No intelligent person would have ever accepted that annoying narration. Every other review that I read about this audible edition criticizes the narration.

Could you see The Stranger You Know being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

I think the FI series would make a great TV series with all the different characters and their individual foibles, the computer genius, the psychic, the ex-seal, the intelligent animal, the behaviorist, and the retired FBI agent. I think young new actors should be given the chance to develop these great characters.

Any additional comments?

I pre-ordered the 4th book in this collection last week. After listening to it (with a great narrator), I ordered the first three books. The first two were as good as the fourth, only #3, The Stranger You Know, was disappointing. It is a shame that the author doesn't have the right to veto this narration.

Horrible narration!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I could not even stand this for 10 minutes, The story may be good but I could not get past the reader.

Would you be willing to try another one of Angela Dawe’s performances?

Doubt it!
