Scott Shepherd's slightly overwrought narration complements this audiobook. His deliberately slow pace keeps listeners on edge as the complex plot focuses on rape and other forms of violence against women. Elizabeth Black, an emotionally damaged cop, is facing criminal charges after being accused of going overboard in her killing of the men who held a young woman captive in a basement and raped her. Black also is obsessed with Adrian Wall, an ex-cop just getting out of prison, where he was tortured by the staff. A young boy, meanwhile, harbors thoughts of killing Wall, and someone is kidnapping women. This is a dark book, made all the darker by Shepherd's stagy interpretation.
