This is an excellent follow up to the first book on this series: City of Echoes. This book picks up right where the first left off however, you don't need to read the first to understand the second because the author weaves the highlights of the first throughout the second - WHEW! Anyway, this book takes you deeper into the life and hard times of Detective Matt Jones. He learns some truths (all the dirty laundry) about his mother and her family and all the reasons no one would ever speak to him about it. He finds out he has an uncle he didn't know he had and doesn't want for a relative but it does explain some mysteries.
The main plot is a little creepy and deals with some topics that might put off some readers -incest. Someone is murdering whole families and posing mothers and sons to look like they have been intimate. At first the police have it all wrong and are looking for the escaped killer from the first book, but Matt know it's not him. I can't tell why with put spoiling a big part of this book.
The book ends with a great cliffhanger leaving you wanting to know what happens next.
Nick Podehl does an excellent job narrating.

** spoiler alert ** Spoilers, maybe..
Well, as of 25% I really didn’t think I’d like Matt in this book. His thoughts of murder and how to get away with it just don’t do it for me. But it turned out OK. But, man, every time you turned around he was in trouble. AND, I know, I know, Dr. Baylor was a serial killer but when he was with Matt I really liked him. Whereas, Rogers and Doyle were real jerks and Kate turned out to be even worse. What a piece of work she was. And the info that came out about Matt was just incredible.
And, OMG, what this new serial killer had his victims doing was soooo horrible. And what Andrew and his mother were doing was totally disgusting. And when Andrew hooked up with Avery Cooper…EWW. She was some kind of sick!
This book had an amazing storyline and ending, although it was left open for another book. I just hope we can have a story without Matt smoking or chewing nicotine gum.
There was no sex that was described but there was some really gross sex hinted at.
The F-bomb was used 28 times.
This was a really good murder/suspense, I enjoyed every word of it AND this time the author gave you a few more descriptions of what people looked like.
As to the narrator: Nick Podehl was just as amazing in this book as he was reading City of Echoes. He laughed, yelled, whispered, everything he was supposed to do. I love his narration.
