Publisher's Summary

Dr. Chris Shepard is 36 years old, newly married, and well on his way to a perfect life. Or so he believes. But that future is forever cast into doubt the day Special Agent Alexandra Morse walks into his office and drops a bombshell: Dr. Shepard's beautiful new wife is plotting his murder.Shepard is so shocked that he almost throws Agent Morse out of his office. Yet once he is alone, doubt begins to gnaw at him. Paranoia magnifies the small cracks in his marital relationship, and soon he can have no peace unless he knows the truth.When Agent Morse reappears, Chris agrees to act as bait to help her unravel the divorce lawyer's scheme, which may already have cost nine unsuspecting spouses their lives.At the center of the mystery lies a maddeningly simple question: If these people really were murdered, why can't the FBI prove it? Rigorous autopsies have uncovered no forensic evidence of foul play, and the police believe no crimes have occurred. As Dr. Shepard and Agent Morse struggle against an invisible adversary, Shepard realizes that he's working with a desperate woman. The reason: the killer's last known victim was Alex Morse's sister, who from her deathbed accused her husband of murder and extracted a vow that Alex save her 10-year-old nephew from his father. This has driven Alex to risk both her life and her career to fulfill that vow.But Chris Shepard soon feels desperation of his own. As he probes his wife's hidden past, he is confronted by the probability that the woman he loves wants him dead.Who is this merciless assassin? Why is murder an art form for him? And what clues could exist to lead them to a man of such twisted talents? Not even the clients who hire him know his identity, and the lawyer who works with him fears him above all else. Most terrifying, those who choose murder over divorce soon learn a terrible truth: once set in motion, the instrument of their anger cannot be stopped.

True Evil

I found the story completely implausible but have to say that I'd listen to Dick hill read a cereal box and be entertained. For a two day trip it did keep me intrigued although I still don't understand why the doctor's wife wanted to have him murdered. That made no sense at all.

I've listened to better by Greg Iles.

What did you love best about True Evil?

Dick Hill's narration. I know he gets some bad reviews but I love him.

What did you like best about this story?

The end is so suspenseful, I had to remember to breathe. I am a nurse and I am glad they got the medical terms correct.

Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, he did an awesome job!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The cancer killer?
