Everyone thinks Emma Dockery is crazy. Obsessed with finding the link between hundreds of unsolved cases, Emma has taken leave from her job as an FBI researcher. Now all she has are the newspaper clippings that wallpaper her bedroom, and her nightly recurring nightmares of an all-consuming fire.
Not even Emma's ex-boyfriend, field agent Harrison 'Books' Bookman, will believe her that hundreds of kidnappings, rapes, and murders are all connected. That is, until Emma finds a piece of evidence he can't afford to ignore. More murders are reported by the day - and they're all inexplicable. No motives, no murder weapons, no suspects. Could one person really be responsible for these unthinkable crimes?

Persevered and hoped this book would improve. Turned out that this story is just not for me. May be for someone else but I struggled with it. I certainly couldn't listen to it again.
You feel for the main character from the off, shes likeable but your unsure about her reasoning and your hoping shes right
i found this book similar to the rosary girls another book that i really enjoyed. The sick mind of the killer is beyond comprehension.
the narrators did a good job on this book
yes i read this book in 2 sittings
would recommend this book, i stopped reading patterson for a while because they seemed to get a bit samey (i know samey not a real word but i like it) this book takes you back to early patterson books
"Great twisting plot"
Loved following a complex plot rooting for Emma to be right. Just the correct amount of complexity to keep you interested.
Emma, supported by Books. Although she was exasperating at times, she was totally dedicated to her cause.
The end where it all started to unravel and come apart for Emma.
One of those books that keeps you listening because you want to know if it is going to work out right.
"Great as Always!"
Patterson just gets better and better. Every single book is utterly un-put-down-able! I hated having to stop listening in order to eat etc but that's life I guess! hehe! Truly great story and characters. The only annoyance is the music at times.
"Perfect for crime lovers"
Patterson does it again. Engaging characters, twists and turns along the way. A bit of cheesiness thrown in for good measure.
January LaVoy is simple the best narrator I've heard.
The best audio book I have ever listened to - with a killer twist! Definitely add this one to your wish list
Love both of the narrators - I have heard January LaVoy from the Womens Murder Club and this she is fantastic.
loved this book, story was fantastic, with a unexpected ending. Reading excellent, keeping you on edge all the time.
Not the best, but definitely worth a listen/read.
Overall the voice acting was very good, but wasn't too keen on January doing the mens voices.
Yes and it was the moment near the end where you relised how far the killer would go to fulfil there plan.
"another J.P book"
Another highly enjoyable mystery/suspense book from James Patterson. Just the right amount of ingredients to keep you listening or page turning. Unforgettable.
This was an easy listen, but certainly not the best James Patterson I've ever read/listened to. I had guessed the final few twists, so I imagine others will too. The only jarring note in all of this was the female narrators dreadful male voices. She just can't do them at all with the result the male characters sounded unbelievable and irritating verging on stupid, which was a great shame as otherwise her narration was very good! Worth a listen if you can tolerate that part.
