"I trusted you, Caity."The still of the night is once again shattered by Caitlyn Cahill’s recurring nightmare - her brother standing before her, gripping a - butcher knife, his eyes black with hatred. Two years ago, the former Washington, DC, socialite defied her powerful senator father and risked the ruin of her family by helping the FBI link her troubled brother to a string of horrific murders. The "Capital Killer" was sent to prison for life - and Caitlyn’s entire world fell apart.
Now FBI agent Reid Novak is forced to rend the peace Caitlyn has found on a rural Virginia horse farm. A copycat killer is on the loose and slowly toying with Caitlyn - his ultimate target - in a terrifying cat-and-mouse game. Almost destroyed two years ago by Caitlyn’s family, not to mention the Capital Killer’s haunting final murder, Reid vows to save the woman he’s never forgotten - or die trying.

Terrific for a car drive! Wonderful narrator!
If you could sum up Midnight Fear in three words, what would they be?
Classic Entertaining Suspense
What was one of the most memorable moments of Midnight Fear?
I loved the suspense and the fast pace. It is certainly a formulaic mystery and I wasn't wholly surprised by the twists. (I won't spoil by giving details.) But things happen so quickly and there isn't time to get too far ahead of the plot.
I really really liked this narrator and am surprised another review made such a point to say they disliked her. (Remind them of someone?)
For me, she gave life to the book and the characters which would otherwise have been a little two dimensional.
The author throws a romance in for the protagonists that doesn't work for me. But I appreciated her attempt to give depth to these wounded people. Again, I think the narratotion helped me care more than I would have.
Which character – as performed by Caroline Shaffer – was your favorite?
I got a kick out of the reporter. I won't give more than that because there are so many ways to spoil the suspense!
Any additional comments?
It's hard to write a review of this without giving it away. So I'll just say that it's fun and not too taxing. Good for a road trip...

Great Story. Poor Narrator.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
No. The narrator made it very difficult to finish this book. The only reason I finished was the story.
What did you like best about this story?
The growing attraction between Kaitlin and Reed.
Would you be willing to try another one of Caroline Shaffer’s performances?
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
I would not recommend a film for this book.
Any additional comments?
Do no use this narrator again!
I’m afraid the odd narration style detracts
The story starts off well but due to the weird narration style I can’t listen past chapter one! The tone and accents used are fine but she starts off with long pauses between sentences or races breathlessly and not because of some action. I find it too distracting
