Nick Sullivan's captivating narration can't redeem the eleventh book in the Alex McKnight series. A necrophiliac serial killer named Martin T. Livermore eludes capture until he targets McKnight and allows the FBI to catch him. After demanding that McKnight investigate his crimes, he ensnares the detective with intimate details and a mounting body count, leading to a showdown that threatens to push McKnight over the edge. Sullivan breathes life into every word and gives characters distinct voices. He smoothly modulates his voice between quietly dramatic dialogue and suspenseful booming narrative. Livermore's creepy timbre starkly contrasts with McKnight's resonant timbre and tone of bravado. However, the plot becomes increasingly unbelievable, resulting in a disappointing story despite Sullivan's deft vocal maneuvering. J.M.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2018]
