Publisher's Summary

When the two strangers turn up at Rowena Cooper's isolated Colorado farmhouse, she knows instantly that it's the end of everything. For the two haunted and driven men, on the other hand, it's just another stop on a long and bloody journey. And they still have many miles to go and victims to sacrifice before their work is done.

For San Francisco homicide detective Valerie Hart, their trail of corpses - women abducted, tortured, and left with a seemingly random series of objects inside them - has brought her from obsession to the edge of physical and psychological destruction. And she's losing hope of making a breakthrough before that happens. But the slaughter at the Cooper farmhouse didn't quite go according to plan. There was a survivor - Rowena's 10-year-old daughter, Nell, who now holds the key to the killings. Injured, half frozen, terrified, Nell has only one place to go. And that place could be even more terrifying than what she's running from.

    "Absolutely brilliant! Scary as hell!!!!"

    A disturbing delve in to the mind of a serial killer. Best thriller I've read since Mo Hayder's 'The Treatment'. Fantastic narration too. 5 star audiobook!

    Story
    "Too much back story"

    This is a decent book, that is very well read and the story is pretty good. The big issue for me was the amount of back story each character had, or more to the point, the authors insistence that before any character did anything there was a 5 minute description of how they were feeling before they did it. I know this is important in books, but in this book it's overkill. Two hours into the book and almost nothing has really happened and by the end of the book I found myself shouting "I don't care how you feel" just get on with it. Some of you might love it, but ruined the book for me.

    Story
    "Very unsettling"

    I found this very disturbing and as such, wouldn't listen to it again.

    I understand that the story involved murders, but to go into such graphic detail with them and in cases, the baddies' language, wasn't necessary. Maybe I'm going all Mary Whitehouse but it was a bit much.

    Various, random people are being murdered and it's up to an alcoholic cop with issues to stop the three year old cases.

    Story
    "Good bits but overall quite long winded"

    I listened to it all, but at times did switch off a bit as everything seemed to be over explained. What I didn't really believe was why the killer was killing. I thought overall it was ok but nothing that really will stay with me.
