Publisher's Summary

Obsessed with her job as a medical examiner and lead consultant with the FBI, Dr. Vivienne "Vivi" DeMarco is a woman running from her own demons. And finding the remains of a body on the side of a road in rural upstate New York wasn't part of her plan.

Frustrated that the ghosts from his past won't leave him alone, Ian MacAllister makes for a reluctant Deputy Chief of Police of Windsor, New York. But as more victims are discovered, all women that bear a shocking resemblance to Dr. DeMarco, he knows he'll need to call on all the skills he learned as an Army Ranger if he wants to keep her safe.

Denied over and over again of the one thing he desires most, a killer may have finally reached his breaking point. The only question that remains is, will he take Vivi and Ian with him?

Good story

I was unhappy with the narration at first thinking the voice was to bougie but it worked. Good easy read. Right amount of characters.

Tamsen Schultz has a new fan!

I came across this book through a Facebook ad, and the synopsis sounded interesting, and to add the audible was only a bit more, so I gave it a try. I was completely impressed! the storyline is well written, the characters are complex, and the plot has enough twists to keep you guessing til the end. Now on to the next one!!

Stupid gratuitous sex

Totally unnecessary sex added nothing to what could have been a good book. Is it too much to ask for a good story without characters jumping in the sack?

Suspense - wide cast of characters

First time read(listen) to this author. A whole cast of characters that lends credence to future books. I enjoyed getting to know everyone and the drama.
The one drawback is the first time the killer is mentioned I knew who it was. I did like the way she redirected and the sub plots that came out at the end. Definitely interested in book 2

This surprised me.

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but was intrigued by the sample, so I was pleasantly impressed. This is not my usual genre of choice (that being sci-fi). Performance was good but sometimes I just felt that the main female character (Dr. Demarco) voice was to girlish. Sometimes my inner ear (my mind’s eye) hears things differently than portrayed in a performance. But it was fun, it’s a thumbs up from me.

Good listen

I really enjoyed this book. The narration was ok. I needed a break from my romance novels and this was a great choice!
