Publisher's Summary

Justice isn't always black or white. Sometimes it's cold and dark.
Former CIA assassin Alex Parker works for The Gateway Project, a clandestine government organization hell-bent on taking out serial killers and pedophiles before they enter the justice system. Alex doesn't enjoy killing, but he's damn good at it. He's good at dodging the law, too--until a beautiful rookie agent has him wondering what it might be like to get caught.
FBI Special Agent Mallory Rooney has spent years hunting the lowlife who abducted her identical twin sister eighteen years ago. Now, during an on-going serial killer investigation, Mallory begins to suspect there's a vigilante operating outside the law. She has no choice but to take him down, because murder isn't justice. Is it?
When Mallory starts asking questions, The Gateway Project management starts to sweat, and orders Alex to watch her. As soon as they meet, the two begin to fall in love. But the lies and betrayals that define Alex's life threaten to destroy them both - especially when the man who stole her sister all those years ago makes Mallory his next target, and Alex must reveal his true identity to save the woman he loves.

A Cold Dark Place

What made the experience of listening to A Cold Dark Place the most enjoyable?

The pacing of the book, the narrator was great.

Who was your favorite character and why?

All of them = )

What does Eric G. Dove bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Great voice

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Almost, I tried but real life came between.

Any additional comments?

Mallory's making a career within the FBI, trying to clear up what happened to her twin-sister when she was abducted, when she's transfered to the BAU team as part of a new investigation with a serial killer. <br/>What she didn't expect was Alex Parker. <br/>Alex a former CIA agent, now part of a government organization that claims revenge when the system can't. He was saved from a moroccan prison in exchange for time within the Gateway Project. He's got no time for feelings, or what Mallory awakens within him. <br/>When the current investigation tangles them up in more than one way, they're about to find out if they've got a chance together. <br/>Suspense, action, mystery and smutty fluff in an awesome combo!<br/>Listened to the audiobook, and the narrator Eric G. Dove was great as well.

Excellent Audiobook!!

This is a mystery/suspense/thriller/romance that has many layers and is fabulously well-written. It's my first book by this author, and Toni Anderson spins an intricate and tangled web that just impressed me to no end. I am definitely getting more audiobooks in this series!

Eric G. Dove's flawless performance pulls you into the story with no distractions to remind you that you are listening to an audiobook. You're just THERE. He is absolutely awesome in every genre he performs. Being the picky, OCD-grammar chick that I am, I tend to notice any mistake and can usually count on at least one mispronunciation, SO I must point out that EGD even managed the almost-always-mispronounced words, "cavalry" AND "infinitesimally" without a hitch. I want to send him a trophy, seriously.

Totally credit- and cash-worthy, but I lucked out and got this for only $1.99 on a Kindle/Whispersynch deal, so check out that option. You won't regret it, and you're gonna love this!!

What a great story! An FBI agent, haunted by her past, is intent on solving the mystery of the vigilante.. She's also searching for her sister, who was kidnapped as a child. The mother, the vigilante, and the agent all come together in a climatic finish. This is a love story, a mystery, and a cover-up that goes deep. The final scene left me listening with bated breath to see what Mallory would do. Which is deeper, respect for the job or revenge? I couldn't stop listening. The narrator does an excellent job with a clear voice, a believable female voice that isn't irritating (as some males trying to be female can be), and brings the characters to life, especially Mallory and Alex.

I'd like to thank the author for providing me a complimentary review copy of the audio. I look forward to moving on to book two.

Romantic Suspense at its Best!

I loved this book! There is romance, suspense, murder, vengeance, betrayal, redemption all woven together! The author wrote a gripping story that pulled me in from the very beginning. I love it when I do not anticipate all of the twists or have it figured out.
The narrator did an outstanding performance with his distinguished voices for various characters. He put so much emotion into the characters and added to the enjoyment of the book.
This book is a standalone listen and part of a series. I can’t wait to listen to the next book. I purchased the e-book and received this audiobook as a gift and have voluntarily written this review. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I do not like to give away spoilers in my review either, and with that said, this listen was so good. I loved it!
