MY THOUGHTS -
WOW! This was the first book I have rad by this author. I'm sold!  This book was excellent, everything a mystery/thriller should be. I have to admit I wasn't sure I would love it in the beginning. But the story picked up very quickly and I was totally hooked!
Loved the characters, especially Detective Kay Hunter. What a great leading lady/heroine. She was not an easy person to get to know. Her's was a very complex character. But, I felt she was real and once I got to know and understand her - I loved her. I would read more of the series just to read more about her.
The story line was also just as complex. Definitely kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. And, the ending... well I don't want to ruin it for you. But its worth reading the book!
Audio - I thought Alison Campbell did a fantastic job! An audio can go either way for me. I have given low ratings to books just because of the reader. Not so with this one! I thought Alison really "made" the story. 
Can't wait to read the next one!

I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this audiobook from Jess the Audiobookworm -  Thank You!
