Detective Archie Sheridan just has to get through the next few days, then his birthday and Halloween will be over. But with escaped serial killer Gretchen Lowell on the loose, the investigation into the murder of a DEA agent demanding his attention, and journalist Susan Ward showing up at his apartment needing a favor, it’s going to be a long weekend.
Soon Archie finds himself crashing a masked ball on a private island owned by Jack Reynolds, a notorious local drug kingpin. By morning, Archie is back on pain killers, a guest is dead and Archie quickly realizes that little is what it seems. One thing is clear: Gretchen is back, and Archie’s nemesis and sometimes lover has something special in mind for the birthday boy, something she’s been planning for a long, long time. On Halloween Eve, with time running out, and the life of someone close to Archie on the line, Archie knows his only chance is to give Gretchen exactly what she wants. But Gretchen will prove more horrifying, and unpredictable, than Archie could ever imagine.
Back with her most thrilling novel yet, Chelsea Cain delivers the pinnacle of what fans of this series have come to expect: sex, murder, twists, dark wit, and some of the best characters in the genre.

Fantastic. .. I loved it. Another brilliantly written book.
Brilliant read.... I felt very sad at the end. Unlike the other books this time I knew there was no book 7 to download and listen too. Bring back Gretchen and Archie :-)
Gretchen strikes again
From reading the previous books in this series I knew what to expect of Gretchen, however even I was surprised at some of the acts carried out by her in this story.
I found the narration to be slightly off-putting and mumbled at times. The narrator's voice as a man was quite irritating, but this is just my personal preference.
