Publisher's Summary

People come to Hades Archer to dispose of their 'problems' - for a fee. But one night he makes a decision that will change everything.

Twenty years later, homicide detective Frank Bennett meets his new partner, the dark and beautiful Eden Archer. But there's something strange about Eden and her brother, Eric. Something he can't quite put his finger on. And as they race to catch a serial killer, Frank starts to wonder if she's as dangerous as the man they hunt.

Great story & riveting narrater

Candice Fox is an excellent story teller and this entire series is thoroughly enjoyable. Lani John Tupu brings the story to life with his exciting narration and resonate voice.

A tour de force

Very hard to believe this is a debut novel - absolutely fabulous, and can't wait to 'read' the next one of hers. Superbly narrated / performed by Lani John Tupu as well

I am loving Candice and Lani

This is the fifth book I’ve listen to that Candice has either written or co-authored and I am loving her work. I don’t have any flash works to critique her work, other than Candice writes a fabulous story that flows well and is compelling.
I have listened to a few books narrated by Lani (most of those are Candice’s books) and I find he is the perfect match for Candice’s books.
On to the next one now...🙃

Worth the money

An engaging story line and excellent narrator. One of the best narrators I’ve heard. Definitely worth buying.

Dark, Different and Intriging

Another gem found among the pebbles! Candice Fox is a new author to me and one that I will definitely follow. In fact, I already have the next one in this series on my phone and can hardly wait to get started on it.

But I knocked a star off because of some formatting choices that I think the editors/author thought would enhance the listening experience, for me it was just distracting.

There were multiple perspective shifts in each chapter but rarely were they delineated in any understandable way. Perhaps it was meant to keep the listeners on our toes but mostly it was just frustrating.

Eden and Eric Archer , brother and sister, witnessed the murders of their parents. The men who killed them botched what was supposed to be a kidnapping for ransom. So there they are .... stuck with two kids who now have no relatives to pay ransom. The men decide to take the kids to Hades ... the man who can 'fix' things...and make things disappear. Like bodies.

Hades cannot kill innocent children ...even evil-doers sometimes have a line they won't cross. So he decides to keep them as his own.
The Archers are now detectives, but they have secrets they don't share with anyone else. Following the death of her partner, Eden has a new partner ... Frank Bennett, who finds Eden attractive ...but mysterious. Eric doesn't like his sister's new partner and doesn't hesitate to let him know.

When a series of murders take place, Eden and Frank, are the lead detectives. Frank accidentally sees something of Eden's that makes him start looking deeper into her life. He finds it's like looking into the abyss and getting lost.

To add anything else at this point would be giving too many spoilers, so I will only add that there are so many unexpected twists and turns that I just could not put this one down. The ending just about blew me away!

Lani John Tupu was outstanding with the delivery of the story
