Publisher's Summary

"If there were a God, he would have stopped me."
That's the message discovered atop an elementary school in downtown Atlanta. Across the street are the bodies of fourteen people, each quickly and cleanly murdered. The sniper Galileo is on the loose. He can end a life from hundreds of yards away. And he is just getting started.
Where others see puzzles, Esme Stuart sees patterns. These outside-the-box inductive skills made her one of the FBI's top field operatives. But she turned her back on all that eight years ago to start a family and live a normal life. She now has a husband, a daughter and a Long Island home to call her own, far removed from the bloody streets of Atlanta.
But Galileo's murders escalate and her old boss needs the help of his former protege. But how can she turn her back on her well-earned quiet life? How would she be able to justify such a choice to her husband? To her daughter?
And what will happen when Galileo turns his scope on them?

Most Helpful

A trite book, not particularly well presented.

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

The story wandered about so much and was not cogently assembled that I found it irritating to listen to...the narrator didn't help much either.

What was most disappointing about Joshua Corin’s story?

Lack of cohesiveness and strong characters.

How could the performance have been better?

I wish I could tell you that...

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from While Galileo Preys?

No particular scene stands out -- one reason I supposed I disliked it!

Any additional comments?

Please take it back!!!
