Holy, holy, holy cow! What an intense, edgy, sitting-on-the-seat-of-my-pants novel. About 25% of the way into the book I was wondering if I could keep reading it. Detective Angie Pallorino might be too broken to tolerate as a heroine. Then along comes James Maddocks -- a strong, caring, tough homicide detective brand new to Victoria, B.C. Maybe he is too good and is this going to be an angst-driven romance? Big sigh -- just keep reading. The plot is spectacular, hints and red herrings galore, police procedural spot on (as much as I know of Canada law - which is not much), and more than one bad guy and different levels of bad guys. Pretty soon, I was sighing again -- big gulps of air filled with tension and out loud exclamations about what I was listening to. I was hooked completely. This was not my first Loreth Anne White book. I like her writing and I am so glad I read and trusted the reviews. Super book. A new great mystery/crime/detective writer for me to read.
Julie McKay was outstanding with the delivery of the story

Any additional comments?
The story line is intense and kept me on the edge of my chair. Angie was a flawed and complex character. I look forward to reading more of this author. This is my first audible book in which the narration detracted from my overall enjoyment of listening to the book. Her voice inflections seem more appropriate to a newscast not telling a story. Her "voices" were also distracting for me. Given the choice, I would not listen to her again.
