Hold on to your heart.
The sadistic experiments conducted in Slaughter Creek have left the town mired in mystery. As Special Agent Rafe Hood works to tie up the loose ends, the discovery of a grisly murder reveals there’s a new killer at work. Someone they’re calling "The Dissector".

The last time the two worked together, passions ran high and the resulting emotional interference with the case nearly cost Liz her life.
Now, even though their attraction is more magnetic than ever, Liz and Rafe will need to resist getting involved again if they’re to avoid the lethal distraction. As mounting evidence suggests the Dissector’s kills are personal, a threat returns from Liz’s past that suggests she was hardly safe to begin with.…

Gruesome mystery novel
- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"
Minor SPOILERS maybe..
OK, so this is the third book in the Slaughter Creek series and my least favorite, even though I really, really liked it. I would have given it 5 stars if Liz hadn't pulled a TSTL twice. I can understand an author wanting to have their heroine to seem strong but not stupid. Liz should have called Rafe as back-up but she was a little to stubborn and got her rear-end taken by a killer. Rafe came in and saved her only to have the same thing happen the next day with a different killer. Again she knew she should call Rafe and didn't. That cost this book a star.I did love Rafe and Jake and Nick. I liked that you had a choice of possible bad guys: Six, Castor, Truitt, Roper and Harlon. As well as our favorite villain, Arthur Blackwood. And I have to say that even though Six was crazy I could certainly understand why he killed those nurses. (I only condone murder in books.) LOL..
I'm going to read Dying for Love now, Amelia's story, but this one is a little iffy for me. She was whacked during all the other book so I'm not so sure she can ever be better.
I got this book and the audio version free with my KindleUnlimited.
As to the narrator: Wonderful! Ms. Eby did a fabulous job on all three of the book so far and I'm sure she'll do just as good a job on the 4th one. Everyone has their own voice and every man sounds just like a man.
