Caleb Parker has been on the run from his past ever since his father, a serial murderer known by the name of Shame, was electrocuted by the state of Florida. Wishing for nothing more than to start life anew and away from the dark shadows of his past, Caleb tries to distance himself from his father's legacy by moving to California. But even when he's far from his father's killing grounds, the past catches up with Caleb when a new series of murders occurs - reminiscent of Shame's brutal handiwork. Once more Caleb is thrust into the spotlight - only this time as the prime suspect.

With the police hungry to convict him, Caleb seeks help from true-crime author Elizabeth Line, the very writer who became renowned by first surviving his father's terrible crimes, and then documenting them. Shame is a nail-biting tour de force that will leave listeners glued to their seats.

    " Very scary! I was scared to turn the lights out and go to sleep. I agree that the Lola character was a bit off though. "

    " truly terrible. Don't bother. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey Wright Aumock | 1/9/2014

    " I wanted to like this...it was a fascinating idea for a book. But it didn't do much for me. It wasn't horrible but I was expecting more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 12/21/2013

    " This book will really suck you in and make you forget to put it down. Though I thought the two spirit thing was unnecessary for the plot it was well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margie Mcmahon | 11/12/2013

    " Over all it was an ok book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gwen Bentley | 10/31/2013

    " I really enjoyed the two stories woven into one. I felt the characters were very real and developed. Great story. The crimes are somewhat graphic, but not overly described for the situation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob Cohen | 10/16/2013

    " Started out really good-- dark and scary and suspenseful- the thing with the transgender Lola was a bit tough for me to digest and I pretty much had it figured out about half way through-- but on the whole entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 9/24/2013

    " Son of a psychotic serial killer is haunted by his fathers gruesome past and the threat of a copycat killer now on the loose. The last few chapters of the book tend to drift but overall it's a pretty good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beverly Alexander-tillison | 9/20/2013

    " What do you do when your Dad was a serial killer... Follow in the family business NOT. In this book the fathers murders are being committed all over again right down to every detail. But he was killed in the Electric chair so who could it be. Great who dunnit "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ree | 9/17/2013

    " Good mystery, but I guessed who it was before the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aurora Twidget | 8/21/2013

    " It was so hard to get through this book. The gripping active moments were few and far between. And the ending just drug on and on. The concept was really cool, but I found that it was poorly executed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat Gerber-Relf | 8/10/2013

    " I am not sure about this one. It was a good story, but the ending was almost too perfect and also a bit unbelievable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda | 8/4/2013

    " Not bad. The idea behind the book, that the son of a serial killer is being framed for murder, was interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karl | 3/25/2013

    " This was a really great read.. Actually surprised how greater I liked it although a fan of type of story. The book had the feel of actually reading a true crime story "
