Publisher's Summary

In this thriller from a number one New York Times best-selling true-crime author, a detective's obsession with an infamous serial killer could lead to her demise.

Ted Bundy. One of America's most notorious serial killers. For two women, he is the ultimate obsession. One is a cop whose sister may have been one of Bundy's victims. The other is a deranged groupie who corresponded with Bundy in prison - and raised her son to finish what Bundy started. To charm and seduce innocent girls. To kidnap and brutalize more women than any serial killer in history. And to lure one obsessed cop into a trap as sick and demented as Bundy himself....

Contains mature themes.

Boring, Lackluster, Lame

NO SPOILERS! This book was an overall disappointment. The author used Ted Bundy as his literal inspiration, but I think he should have made it clear what was true and what was sick fantasy.

I love dark thrillers but this one barely qualifies. The narrator was absolutely horrible. She made all women sound like they were 100 years old. There are way too many characters. Even at the “darkest” moments there was no suspense.

Twists and Turns!

Story 4/5
Narration 2/5

Reread

Lots of twists and turn, in this one, but an astute Sherlock can find the correct clues.

This narrator has a wonderful voice, but many of her female characters sounded weepy and 100 years old. Very annoying and distracting; like nails on a blackboard.

Bad fanfic

Oh honey, stay in your non-fiction lane. I don't know if I'll ever get the stench of badly handled red herring out of my nostrils. And, insult to injury, the narrator did that man-voice thing that just ruins everything entirely. Super disappointing all round.

needs a different narrator

The story is great, you think you know, but it really takes a twist at the end. I didn't like the narrator's voice
