You know, this book does have it problems. I really enjoyed this and can't wait to get started on the second My headline is perhaps a little unfair as I gave up on this after about 50 pages as I found its sadistic partners in crime indulged a little too much in cruel sadism for comfort. I just didn't want to stop reading as it really drew me into the world created by the author.

The dialogue between Patrick and Amy is a little trite. Gary Tiedemann is amazing in his delivery and does a fabulous job setting the mood and creating suspense! It continues the story from books 1 and 2, but loses even more steam and you feel like the author is just going for resolution at this point. I'll be sure to check out other narrated books by Gary in the future! The writing itself is great and flows nicely, keeping you glued to the pages. I am looking for it now. This series is ideal for fans of authors across several different blends of dark fiction! Marine and security specialist Domino Taylor does not work anymore.

Menapace has a particularly good ear for dialogue, and the scenes between husband Patrick and wife Amy served to properly establish their characters - even if they did turn out to have a sickeningly perfect relationship and an almost-perfect life.
It's disturbing, but not twisted to the level that you'll wish you hadn't heard it. So ist der Thriller mehr auf Thrill statt auf Grauen ausgelegt, wo ich etwas anderes erwartet hatte, und die Story auch definitiv etwas mehr Grauen vertragen hätte. Players who are taking things very personally. I bonded with Patrick and Amy instantly. Two major points: It is not a good standalone.

It also gives you some crazy inner dialogue to what the killers are thinking. The ending is just plain silly.

More gory than scary No suspense whatsoever.
