Thrilled to spend the final hours of her spring break in the VIP room of an elite Manhattan club, fresh-faced Indiana college student Chelsea Hart remains behind when her girlfriends call it a night. The next morning, joggers find her body in East River Park, her blond hair brutally hacked off.

NYPD Detective Ellie Hatcher believes the group of privileged men last seen plying Chelsea with free-flowing alcohol most likely includes a murderer. But after building a tight case against a young hedge fund manager, Ellie has her doubts, because Chelsea’s slaying is eerily similar to three other murders from nearly a decade ago. Continuing the investigation long after the department brass is satisfied with their case, hard-headed Ellie plunges into a late-night party world of conspicuous wealth and hedonistic consumption to catch the real killer—unaware that a psychopath is watching her every move … and eager to kill again.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Desiree | 2/15/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. The main character was not only likable, but easy to relate to as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Iain McGregor | 2/6/2014

    " A well paced detective story with an interesting twist on the 'hero becomes victim' line which, for me, is often a tad too predictable. An all round good read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 2/6/2014

    " Plucky NYPD Detective Elly Hatcher goes for her morning job, and comes across the mutilated body of a teenage girl. She works with her partner to solve the crime. A good story, but the dialogue was really mundane. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 MBP | 2/3/2014

    " Boring: reminds me of about a hundred things I've already read, without anything new or different to make it stand out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Icicle4 | 1/27/2014

    " Will be starting this one soon. Have high hopes for it as I have enjoyed her previous books. I don't think she has the literary turn of phrase her father has, but the pages turn easily on her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 1/18/2014

    " NYPD detective Ellie Hatcher returns in this 2nd novel with lots of suspense and plot twists. Couldn't put this one down. "

    " A cop thriller. Quick read and fun! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolin | 1/13/2014

    " Readable and actually better than I expected for a freebie on the kindle. The ending was a bit expected but definitely good for a holiday read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lois | 1/7/2014

    " I'm loving the murder mystery stuff again. Have missed it since I ran out of James Patterson's books. This was about Homicide detective Ellie Hatcher discovering the murder of 4 young women leaving bars alone at night in NYC and a surprise at who the killer was... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 1/5/2014

    " It gets 3 stars because I liked Ellie Hatcher (the lead detective). Otherwise, it was your basic cop thriller. "

    " From Nessy's Book Box. "

    " Eh - NYC police procedural. 2nd in series with Det. Ellie Hatcher. Not as good as the first - less personal connection with the main character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsay | 9/27/2013

    " An excellent mystery/crime novel about a young, female detective in New York City. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melise Gerber | 9/20/2013

    " This was a good book. Quick read, well-drawn characters, interesting story. If I hadn't read it immediately after reading Cody McFadden's Abandoned, I probably would rate it more highly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 A. | 7/8/2013

    " If her writing keeps improving book by book, she's going to be killer one day. I like Ellie as a protagonist so much more than I like Samantha Kincaid, too. "

    " Good story. I love James Lee Burke's books too! "

    " Another great read by Alafair Burke! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 6/10/2011

    " It was a typical crime novel. I was engrossed in the story, I did stay up later than usual for the few nights that it took for me to finish it, the love interest plot line was believable and not too sappy. An acceptable break from heavier reads. "
