Every artist needs a muse, or three if they are superstitious.
Muses require care. They are far too delicate to wander freely in the world. A painter, known to his young captives as, the artist, has constructed an idyllic cage to keep the world out, and where his carefully selected muses can flutter about, inspiring his work.
Detective Jack Lancaster is no stranger the horrors human monsters inflict on the innocent people in his city. When he takes the statement of, Lark, a young woman who escaped the hands of the artist, he discovers that when creativity and psychopathy occupy the same mind, depravity becomes an artform.

Great Addition to the Genre
The collector/serial killer genre is one of my favorites. While many have similar feels - a killer (usually an older wealthy man) collects victims (usually young women) and then depravity ensues. Typically one woman escapes to tell the story and it ends there. So to respond to the other harsh review, yes, it's a collector/killer book, and yes, it sounds like many of them in the opening section. I hope if listeners are considering this one they won't let that jade them because this one takes a wild swing in the last two parts that move it well past where most in the genre go, exploring something with the victim in a way I've not seen before. I don't want to spoil anything but that was a bent twist on empowerment. WOW. I think the just the facts tone of the narrator worked for the story in many ways. I hope there will be more. I'd love to see what the future held for Lark and Jack.

Don't do it.
The first part of this book is a complete rip off of "The Butterfly Garden". The storyline is almost exact but changes butterflies to birds. The narration is terrible and I only stuck with it to see how much of the other book she would copy. The writer copied basically the entire story. The rest of the book picks up a little but I couldn't stand the narration anymore. I skipped to the last 10 minutes of the book to see what happened. Save yourself and listen to the "The Butterfly Garden", well written and the narration will not offend your ears.
