Joe Trumbull is not a man who scares easily. As a juvenile probation officer in Kingston, New York, he's half cop, half social worker to the most high-risk youth in the city. And when he's not pounding the streets, trying to keep his kids out of jail, he's pounding a heavy bag in the gym to stay in shape.

But tonight Joe Trumbull is scared to death.

It's been two years since his fiancée, Laurel, was brutally murdered. Two years of grief and loneliness. On this hot summer night, he's finally going out on a blind date, his first date since Laurel's death. He's not looking for love, just testing the waters to see if it's possible to live a normal life again. The thought of it is turning his knees to jelly.

Marlene Frost is a beautiful woman. She's warm and funny, with a smile to match. After the first awkward minutes, Joe finally starts to think this isn't such a bad idea after all. In fact, maybe this blind date will turn out to be one of the best things that ever happened to him.

He couldn't be more wrong. Because somehow, for reasons Joe can barely understand, this one evening will mark the beginning of a new nightmare. A nightmare that will lead him to the faceless man in the shadows. Download and start listening now!

    " I found this story depressing. I just couldn't get excited about it. There were too many 'bad parts'. Not enough positive to carry it along. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 2/19/2010

    " Not too bad, ended kind of abruptly - all questions answered very quickly... seemed rushed given the pace of the book to that point. "

    " It was okay. Maybe it was because I was not invested in the characters, or some of the plot points were a little much to accept, but I was not that into it. I find I am pretty jaded to exaggeration (or Hollywoodesque showiness) in my crime fiction lately.

    " A good, well-written thriller. It felt good to be reading a Steve Hamilton book again, even though it wasn’t an Alex McKnight mystery. "

    " A must Read if you enjoy Hamilton. !!!! Awesome book! "

    " This is my second Steve Hamilton book. I liked it almost as much as "A Cold Day in Paradise" but not quite as much. Would have given it 3 1/2 stars if I could. He certainly weaves a complex mystery. I have to admit I had difficulty putting this book down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 9/3/2009

    " I was entertained by this book. I think I prefer Hamilton's Alex McKnight series, but this book was quick, engrossing and original.

    " Excellent; parole officer whose girlfriend was killed 2 years earlier, has various women he has contact with also turn up dead, and he's the prime suspect

    " This was good,compelling in parts, but what I enjoyed most was the local setting. It was fun to know well all the locations the characterts passed through. We even owned a condo where Joe Trumbell's friend, Howie, lived! "
