Publisher's Summary

The Killing Game: An Alexa Chase Suspense Thriller, Book 1 is the debut novel in a new series by mystery and suspense author Kate Bold

Alexa Chase, 34, a brilliant profiler in the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit, was too good at her job. Haunted by all the serial killers she caught, she left a stunning career behind to join the US Marshals. As a Deputy Marshal, Alexa - fit, and as tough as she is brilliant - could immerse herself in a simple career of hunting down fugitives and bringing them to justice.

But when a notorious serial killer escapes from a prison transport, it crosses the jurisdictions of the U.S. Marshals and the FBI’s BAU. The two departments are forced to come together on a new joint task force to hunt down the fugitive serial killer and bring him to justice. Alexa, to her dread, finds herself forced to confront the thing she fears the most - entering a killer’s mind. Doing so again, she knows, may just drag her down for good.

Alexa and her new partner, each territorial, don’t take well to each other. Between their tension and all the clues leading to dead ends and the bodies piling up on the killer’s spree, Alexa knows that she, up against a ticking clock, can’t afford to get this wrong. Especially when she realizes that she herself may be the next target. To find this diabolical killer, Alexa will have to do what she fears most - enter his twisted mind, before he can strike again. It’s a life-and-death game of cat and mouse, and it’s winner takes all.

But will the darkness swallow her whole?

A pause-resisting and harrowing crime thriller featuring a brilliant and tortured Deputy Marshal, the Alexa Chase series is a riveting mystery, packed with non-stop action, suspense, twists and turns, revelations, and driven by a breakneck pace that will keep you listening late into the night.

Books 2 and 3 in the series - The Killing Tide and The Killing Hour - are also available.

Well, uh, I had no problem listening to whole
recording.
Breezy, moves along, not so deep as John LaCarre but few are.

Justin Price does an admirable performance

I really enjoyed the story. Author Kate Bold has created an interesting character, Alexa Chase. However, she remind me of other women I have worked with in positions formerly dominated by men. There is that drive to excel which is admirable, but regardless of sex the desire doesn't always translate into skill. In life and death situations, as is the case with law enforcement and the military, on the job overconfidence is dangerous. I do realize that she has a personal connection in this case and that affects her role, but I hope that her character will develop and mature in subsequent books. For Audible listerners, I believe you will enjoy the performance by Justin Price.

Most tedious narration ever!

The guy reading this sounds like he’s in a coma. Totally ruins what might have been a decent yarn.

What the heck are you doing, audible? Why are 90% of your narrators so completely awful?

I love action thrillers and yet audible go for blokes who can barely read and who are incredibly boring to read them!

I cannot recommend this book

Way to far fetched to be bothered with.
Crime fiction needs a modicum of believability to work for readers/listeners. This book has none.
