George Newbern narrates the sixth Robert Hunter crime novel. Carter's dialogue tags are vital in this production as Newbern makes little distinction between characters. However, there are still spots where listeners will likely lose track of the speaker and find themselves confused. While Newbern's calm, even delivery works well to highlight the emotional control of the psychotic serial killer, the production has additional problems. Hunter works with a female FBI agent in this series installment. Disappointingly, the author characterizes her as an emotional bumbling idiot who is regularly shown up by L.A. police detective Hunter. Newbern exaggerates this trait in her especially frenzied reactions to the antagonist. Fans of mysteries involving serial killers may enjoy this, but most crime fiction listeners can take a pass.
