Publisher's Summary

Dr. Tessa McGowan had never seen anything quite like it. But the mutilated bodies on her exam table tell a stunningly macabre tale: someone with a twisted mind is kidnapping women and altering their faces to resemble real, life-size dolls. As a forensic pathologist, it's her job to aid the agent leading the case - even if that agent is her estranged husband.
Twelve years ago an unspeakable tragedy destroyed Dakota Sharp's world. Haunted by the ghosts of his past, he's devoted himself to capturing killers. His only regret is that it cost him Tessa. Now, as the Dollmaker case brings them together - and raises his suspicions that he's crossed paths with this deranged psychopath before - they may just have their second chance. But it seems Dakota's not the only one who wants to make Tessa his own...
She may be the Dollmaker's next target, but Tessa has no intention of winding up as another toy on his shelf. Can she and Dakota stop this ghastly killer before his next deadly playdate?

Nothing to really write home about. Usual brooding detective who has a broken heart but still full of feeling. The crackpot who does all the killings. Then the Chase.
Broody,lengthy,and just okay.

This is a real page turner.

If you could sum up The Dollmaker in three words, what would they be?

The Doll Maker is a well-crafted thriller with a real twist at the end.

What other book might you compare The Dollmaker to, and why?

Any of Karen Rose's books, which is a very high compliment. The clear way the story is laid out is right throughout this book, but it does seem to give the perpetrator more voice than would Rose, but that is fine.

What does Christina Traister bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I liked her clear accented voice and her steady and precise diction.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but it was too long for that, but I did find myself saying "just one more chapter" several times late at night.

Any additional comments?

I have liked the two previous books in this series which I read on Kindle and would recommend them to those who like thrillers with just a touch of romance.
