In a mountain cabin, a detective opens a Pandora's box of horror that will haunt him to his dying day. Within hours, Vincent Cardoni - a brilliant surgeon with a history of violence and drug abuse - is arrested for the heinous crime. Facing a seemingly insurmountable wall of evidence, he turns to top criminal defense attorney Frank Jaffe and his daughter Amanda. Her first taste of criminal defense work raises moral questions Amanda is loathe to address. Is she defending an innocent man or using her considerable skills to set a monster free? Then, Cardoni mysteriously disappears. Four years later, a second set of killings begins...Has Cardoni resurfaced? Is this the work of a copy-cat killer? Or has the real killer been someone else all along? Following a twisting trail of clues, including a harrowing diary that clinically records the killer's deeds, Amanda and detective Bobby Vasquez become targets of the first genuinely monstrous psychopath of the new century.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wcloninger | 2/13/2014

    " Quick read and very enjoyable but totally predictable. I knew who it was early on. Like the female character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsey | 12/25/2013

    " Holy crap. Although, I did figure this one out a little earlier than I figured out the ending of most of his other books. At least there was a happy ending...if you can call that happy! All of these books are quick, suspenseful reads and I enjoy them! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gloria | 12/11/2013

    " First book in a series. Quick read with one sex scene and quite a bit of violence. The violence is serious but not gory as the author does not offer a play by play of the violent acts. A female attorney is the main character, but the whole story line had a male feel to it. Could definitely determine the "real" bad guy too early in the story, and towards the end, the story became less believable as the unrealistic plot turns took over. Not bad, just not great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doris | 11/30/2013

    " As books on serial killers go, this was a pretty good one. The characters were interesting and kept you wanting to turn the pages to see what would be happening next. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/21/2013

    " My father in law gave me this book. I think he liked it because it was set in Portland, OR. Typical legal thriller with a serial killer, I figured it out by about page 100. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan Brown | 11/18/2013

    " The 4-star is for mind-candy, not great literature. Both have their place in my reading life. Margolin is consistently good mind candy for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 E.R. Yatscoff | 11/11/2013

    " This is a good book that will keep you interested and guessing. Just when the killer is discovered you realize there are quite a few pages left and more suspects pop up. The story achieves a good balance between dialogue, description, and suspense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hank | 10/15/2013

    " O.K. Just O.K an enjoyable read, but not a "glowing" recommendation... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kcbookworm | 9/12/2013

    " Another fast read...mildly entertaining. Maybe my mood, but I was a wee bit bored. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 8/24/2013

    " A quick and easy read. Gory in parts but not unexpected as I've read some of his books before. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 8/18/2013

    " Margolin is one of my favorite authors... This is a page turner. It took me one weekend and I just could not put this book down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherpaxc | 7/29/2013

    " Fun and easy read. Brain candy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darlene | 6/26/2013

    " I am LOVING this author. Read 3 of his books in the past 2 weeks. There is suspense, twists and turns, courtroom, Great author! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 GIZMO | 3/7/2013

    " for all the references to the Cardino case in every other Amanda Jaffe book I expected more...like most of Margolin's books there's a long buildup and then a truncated finish that tries but doesn't quite answer all the questions to my satisfaction "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Petrocelly | 2/15/2013

    " This is the second book I've read by this author & I'll definitely read more. It wasa fantastic story with a ridiculously great ending that I can picture making as a movie. This isn't fluffy suspense - it's pretty harsh, actually. Enjoy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Marble | 12/1/2012

    " Plucky heroine, set in Portland...what's not to like? Oh, it's a little bit gruesome a la Chelsea Cain's series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy | 11/15/2012

    " Pretty good who-dun-it with some twists, involving doctors killing to harvest body parts to sell. But I figured it out way before the end so it only gets 3 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 8/28/2012

    " Absolutely loved this book!! Excellent twists and turns. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jacqui Rodgers | 4/20/2012

    " Terrible. Predictable. One dimensional. A reminder why I avoid drug store mass market paperbacks. The only reason I gave it two stars instead of one, is because it's your typical mindless read that can be finished in a few hours...and we all like those from time to time. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lois | 12/25/2011

    " a couple of interesting characters--two surgeons that are whacko--but the writing is so blah! and it's not that hard to guess who the bad guy really is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thomas DeWolf | 10/6/2011

    " Too violent for my taste, but a fast-paced thriller that kept me riveted. "

    " Basic test [yes/no:]: Would I recommend you read this book or not. Was it worth the few hours spent reading it? Am I pleased that I spent the time reading it? --- NO --- "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darlene | 3/13/2010

    " I am LOVING this author. Read 3 of his books in the past 2 weeks. There is suspense, twists and turns, courtroom, Great author! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ted | 1/27/2010

    " OK, it's fiction, but in reading this book, one suspects elements of reality can't help but creep into place.
    Every segment of society represented in this book (politics, justice, criminal elements) has their own take on things. The world they live in is quite bizarre. Reader, beware! "

    " This was just a bit too gory for me. We listened to it in the car, so I finished it, but if I had been reading it, don't think I would have finished it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 8/29/2009

    " Excellent; Continuing character: Amanda Jaffe (first in series); young woman lawyer tries to sort out two cases over four years that include serial murders, doctors as suspect, and gangsters as well.
