Publisher's Summary

Some doors are locked for a reason....

While 11-year-old Nora Davis was up in her bedroom doing homework, she had no idea her father was killing women in the basement.

Until the day the police arrived at their front door.

Decades later, Nora's father is spending his life behind bars, and Nora is a successful surgeon with a quiet, solitary existence. Nobody knows her father was a notorious serial killer. And she intends to keep it that way.

Then Nora discovers one of her young female patients has been murdered. In the same unique and horrific manner that her father used to kill his victims.

Somebody knows who Nora is. Somebody wants her to take the fall for this unthinkable crime. But she's not a killer like her father. The police can't pin anything on her.

As long as they don't look in her basement.

Excellent story …… again … this author never disappoints

I enjoyed this book very much!! What a twist at the end.
But I agree the reader’s voice is awful and makes it almost impossible to get through the audio , but I persevered. Hope she isn’t used again.

Bad narrator

I couldn’t even finish the book because the narration was sooooo bad. I think the story was ok and I would have like to find out the ending but I just can’t listen to that narrator anymore.

Fantastic book BUT…..

The book is outstanding! So interesting! Another fantastic Freida McFadden book, HOWEVER THE NARRATOR WAS HARD TO LISTEN TO! I'm so glad I forced myself to push past that as it was awesome but I did have to listen in small increments as her voice gave me a headache:

Terrible narration

My opinion of this book is heavily skewed by narration that is very hard to listen to. Forced voices and lots of monotone (especially every male character) make it very hard to know if the book is any good. Judging by other books by the same author, I think it’s probably good, but I’d recommend reading it rather than listening to this recording. The narration is grating and lacking emotion and sincerity.

Okay!

Overall it was a bit lacking for me.
I think I've been spoiled with The Housemaid, and I was hoping this book might've been as good.
I also think the narration was so bad that it contributed to my disappointment.
