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.

Horrible Narrator!

The story was adequate and a fun creepy read for the Halloween season. It was fairly surface level with undeveloped characters but an easy read. This book needs to be re-recorded as this is the worst narrator I have ever heard.

Narrator

The narrator was horrendous. I hate giving a bad review but this narrator had the most annoying voice.

Should re-record

Honestly I think this could have been a way better listen with a different narrator. Everything is so intense, even when it seems to be just a normal conversation. No one talks like that… just very confusing.

I got through it, I wouldn’t recommend it….

The story wasn’t so bad, it had some good moments. It definitely didn’t snatch my wig, but I wanted to see how it ended, so I finished it. The narration was so annoying! I feel awful saying this but I couldn’t really get past how annoying the narrator’s voice was. I hate to say that but I’m just being honest…..

Narrator

The narration made a very interesting book unbearable to get through. Fantastic book but I would read it if you want to enjoy the book. The narrator is absolutely terrible. Terrible!

I wouldn't buy this one

The narration was so grating and shrill, it was difficult to listen to! what were they thinking! She was so affected it was bizarre. It took all I had to put her tone aside to listen. The great "reveals" were flat, did not advance the story well at all. The characters were not well developed, the plot had potential but was repetitive. This was a very disappointing novel.

Big MEH

I have been anticipating posting a review since I started this book. This is the absolute WORST narrator i've ever listened to. I heard really good things about the book so I stuck with it just for the content. It was super annoying having to listen to her. Just terrible.

As for the book... it was okay. Good twist... but that's about the only thing I have to say about it. I bet it would have been a ton better without the narration.
