Publisher's Summary

Years ago, a young woman was beaten and raped while onlookers did nothing. Now those witnesses are becoming victims themselves.
Baltimore Homicide Detective J. D. Fitzpatrick has seen a lot of horrific violence, both as a cop and during his deployment in Afghanistan, but nothing like the trail of tortured bodies that are turning up throughout the city. He’s up against a brutal killer with a very personal vendetta, and now J. D. is beginning to suspect that his medical examiner may be shielding some crucial evidence linked to the case.
Assigned to the murder victims, forensic pathologist Dr. Lucy Trask is intrigued by J. D.’s compassion, but she isn’t about to mix work with pleasure. Not while there’s a ruthless killer on the loose. And definitely not while she’s keeping a dark secret that could connect her to these vicious killings—and put her next on the hit list.

“Rose doesn’t allow her luxurious characterizations to get in the way of a wicked good plot that grabs hold and maintains tension from beginning to end.” ( Publishers Weekly)

Not the right narrator

I really enjoy Karen Rose's books, and so far this one is no exception, but this is just NOT the right narrator for the book. I've enjoyed Ms. Gavin's narration in The Hollows series (among others), but her voice is driving me crazy with this one. It sounds like she's lisping and some of the accents are terrible... things that I haven't noticed before. Whatever she's changed, she needs to quit and change back.

I may have to buy the book

I am a huge fan of Karen Rose's books, the audio productions in particular. I am about 2 hours into this one and I am tempted to go to the book store and buy the book to read instead. The story line is already very good very typical Karen Rose, however, the narrator is terrible. Hard to understand and her fake southern accents are like nails on a chalkboard. Very distracting to the storyline.
