Publisher's Summary

Soundings and Choc Lit present the audiobook edition of Who Cares If They Die. It starts with the hanging woman in the Maple Valley woods; the woman with no shoes, no car and no name. On paper it’s an obvious case of suicide - but to Officer Dean Matheson, something doesn’t add up. 

Then there are the other deaths, deaths that also look like suicides - but are they? The victims are all women living on the fringes of society, addicts and criminals. Who will miss them? Does anyone really care if they die? Dean Matheson is making it his business to care, even if it means he becomes a target....

A serial killer right under their noses

This is first in the series of Dean Matheson. Dean is a patrol cop with marital problems, while recovering from his brother’s suicide. Dean jumps at the opportunity to fill in for a detective, working on an apparent suicide. Enter a new psychiatrist at the women’s correctional facility…with whom Dean takes a liking. When Dean’s estranged wife is killed in a car accident, the small community rallies around him…until it’s revealed that the accident was not an accident…and a junkie did not really overdose. There’s a serial killer on the prowl. The story seems to drag at times but is actually a good one if you stick with it.

predictable and awful narration

You know who the killer is from the beginning which was weird. This book is set in New Hampshire but everyone sounds like Christopher Walken (Queens NY accents). Shouldn't drive me crazy but it did. but most of the characters were likeable and that was the only redeeming aspect.

Strong story and compelling characters

The story is interesting and fun to figure out. the characters and setting has a good mix of romantic crime fiction and hardline reality making for some great drama.

The writing has a really natural flow that allows you to experience the crimes as the characters do, you get the feeling of being right there with them, with the same context and clues as they do, you don't feel that your missing something unless it's apart of the mystery.

The narration was good, I struggled with hearing some of the pronouns clear though, which made the first couple of chapters confusing thinking "he" was doing something when in fact it was "she" after a while I acclimatised and was fine.

The good range of male accents really sets the scene and endears you to alot of the characters.

I really enjoyed it and now have an inexplicable urge to go visit new-hampshire.

Ok story but nothing magical

Prefer the authors more recent series. This one definitely keeps you wanting more but more in a fustrated way. Im unsure if it is the narrator or the character Dean but he just seems to make stupid choices time and time again!
