College student Tara Chatry is certain something bad has happened to her best friend Ethan Campbell. The smart, geeky student has disappeared, and when Tara tries to get the police involved, they dismiss her concerns, convinced Ethan is just another college student off on a bender.
Shaye Archer hasn't even been back in New Orleans for a full day when Tara knocks on her door, asking for help. Shaye isn't prepared to jump back into her old job, but knows if she doesn't help Tara, no one else will. As she works to find Ethan, she discovers that he's not the only victim. A serial killer is at work playing a deadly game, and Shaye rushes against the clock to save Ethan before it's too late.

Solve the clue and save yourself!
I've reached the end (so far) in this series and do not want to wait for another. This is book four in the Shaye Archer series, I would recommend reading this series in order as each book builds on the previous and relationships develop and become more intimate.
In this book a young woman approaches Shaye because a close friend of hers (Ethan) has gone missing. He's a geeky college student studying accounting. He doesn't drink, smoke or do drugs. When she goes to the police they blow her off and tell her he's probably off on a bender. She knows he wouldn't do that and asks Shaye for help. What Shaye uncovers initially appears to be a prank. Someone abducted a college student and sent Ethan a text with a strange message to solve the clue & save the girl. If he doesn't she'll die and he'll be next. The girl's body is found a few days later. Then Ethan disappears and another person gets a similar text.
As in her other books, Jana DeLeon steers the reader to an obvious suspect and then springs the real perpetrator on you. This person is not unknown through out the book, just someone you would never guess could be a killer.
The other thing DeLeon does is leave you with a cliffhanger that stays with you long after you have finished the book. Don't you just hate waiting to find out how that gets resolved?
Julie McKay does an excellent job narrating.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book and the entire series.

Great suspense mystery series set in NOLA!
Private investigator Shaye Archer is a very wealthy young woman who can choose the cases that interest her without regard for the client's ability to pay. She is also the victim of a horrible crime that has left her with partial amnesia. Wicked is the 4th novel in the series. All four were released in audio format one month ago. The 5th novel in the series titled Unseen was released two weeks earlier in ebook and paperback formats, but not in audio. I hope Unseen will be released soon in audio format.
All four Shaye Archer novels released so far in audio are solid 5 star suspense mysteries with outstanding narration by Julie McKay. This series has my highest recommendation.
