Publisher's Summary

A killer is watching....

Thirteen years ago, Winter Black came home early from a sleepover to find her parents brutally murdered and her little brother gone — taken by a serial killer called The Preacher. 

Now a rookie FBI agent assigned to her first murder case, Winter has returned to the small Virginia town where she grew up. But when bones found by a hunter lead to the discovery of a secret burial ground containing the remains of children, the investigation suddenly hits close to home as the past and future collide with each new shocking discovery. Will they find her brother’s bones in the makeshift graveyard next?

Only The Preacher knows, and he’ll do anything to keep the past — and its secrets — buried until he’s ready to make his final move.

A masterfully conceived psychological thriller reminiscent of Lisa Jackson, Harlan Coben, and Karin Slaughter, Winter’s Mourn will keep listeners awake — and watching the window — long past midnight.

Good story.

I enjoyed the story and the presenter. The constant mentioning of Winter’s blue eyes and everyone’s eye color drove me a little nuts. I would listen to another by this author.

intriguing story and characters

the story was interesting and drew me in to figure out what was the deceptive mysterious goings on at the "farm". The thing that ruined the story for me was the narrator. Her tone was always breathless. No matter who was speaking or what the situation was her voice is one that just always sounds like it's breathless. And her male voices were really quite awful. I very often could not tell who was talking because they all sounded alike and none of them sounded good. The plot is reminiscent of the David Baldacci series with Atlee Pine With a strong female character now in law enforcement who has a tragic past. However it's intriguing enough for me to go ahead and move on to the next book in the series.

Disappointing

The ending of this book feels contrived just to ensure sales of the next book in the series. I never felt invested in the story or the characters. Overall a disappointment.

Good Read

I definitely like this book. Suspenseful and enjoyable. Not as crazy about the narrator as her voice came across as always anxious and at times not as believable. Overall still a good book.

Great Srory and Narration

I really liked this book. Whenever I had to stop listening, I couldn't wait to get back to it to find out what would happen next. The narration was great, utilizing different voices for each character, along with written description of each, helped to envision each character in action.

Dreadful narration

I chose this book after seeing the raving reviews on Facebook. The story was ok, but I had worked it out half way through. The narrator has the most annoying sing song voice, I dislike her American accent and she reads too fast! I found it difficult to remain interested and found my mind wandering. I don’t think I will read anything more from Mary Stone and will definitely avoid this narrator Brittany Goodwin.

Winters Mourn

Excellent story I enjoyed it very much! Have now downloaded the next in the series!
The narrator was good although I could have had her read a little bit slower for my taste however it did not distract me from the storyline.
I could not wait to finish this book it was so good!
Mary Stone definitely deserves the five stars I have given her first book! Very pleased.
