The Flayer, a serial killer in New York, cuts up his victims and posts videos online. He is planning a special show, one that will break the internet. However, that's only part of his plan. The second part will break the city.
Special Ops agent Zeb Carter, recruited to help the NYPD, has never come across a killer as evil and cunning as the Flayer.
The Flayer appears at will, disappears into the darkness, and all that he leaves behind his a mutilated body.
As the body count rises and New Yorkers turn on the police, the Flayer amps the pressure. He releases a video of his killing and makes a chilling promise. His next killing will break the internet - it will be live.
Zeb Carter has few clues; the only lead he has uncovered suggests that breaking the internet is not the Flayer's sole motive. He is building up to a terrifying climax the likes of which the city hasn't faced before…
Zeb decides to come out in the open in order to draw out the Flayer; however he might be too late. The Flayer has already set his plan in motion.
The city that never sleeps is heading to a catastrophic nightmare.

"Prime time viewing at the House of Flaying"
As with all of this author's work, Flay is well written, the protagonists are fully defined and feel real, even the secondary players, and, a!though action packed, it does not rely on fight scenes alone to excite and maintain the building tension. A good story, built primarily around the hunt for The Flayer, a viscous serial killer who leaves no clues other than messages sent to the victim's family and the police, but which also tracks a terrorist cell intent on bringing their own variety of death and destruction into America. The storylines coverage as both are tirelessly tracked by Zeb Carter and his team over several months to the explosive ending.I can highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys action, thrillers or police-type procedurals
The wrong narrator can easily ruin the enjoyment of a good book but this is not the case here: Simon Carlton's reading was perfectly paced, clear, and he differentiated between characters without turning it into a one person dramatic production..I listened mesmerized to this audio production with virtually no break.
