Past midnight, Chyna Shepard, twenty-six, gazes out a moonlit window, unable to sleep on her first night in the Napa Valley home of her best friend’s family. Instinct proves reliable. A murderous sociopath, Edgler Foreman Vess, has entered the house, intent on killing everyone inside. A self-proclaimed “homicidal adventurer,” Vess lives only to satisfy all appetites as they arise, to immerse himself in sensation, to live without fear, remorse, or limits, to live with intensity. Chyna is trapped in his deadly orbit.

Chyna is a survivor, toughened by a lifelong struggle for safety and self-respect. Now she will be tested as never before. At first her sole aim is to get out alive—until, by chance, she learns the identity of Vess’s next intended victim, a faraway innocent only she can save. Driven by a newly discovered thirst for meaning beyond mere self-preservation, Chyna musters every inner resource she has to save an endangered girl . . . as moment by moment, the terrifying threat of Edgler Foreman Vess intensifies.

One of the best thrillers around. Fast paced, edge of your seat kinda stuff. Unfortunately the narration is not great but the material was still able to shine. get this one today!

This book was an exercise in minute for minute agony. The writer describes every thought and emotion and pain and difficulty as the subject overcomes the evil killer, exercises the demons of her youth and frees the victim. While technically proficient and the plot ambitious, it is exhausting to listen to a story that could be told in two hours far better. I do NOT recommend this book to anyone.

The story was a bit too intense for me to enjoy, but it was well-written, with some powerful insights. Quite violent.

I’ve read this book several times! It’s VERY INTENSE! However the narrator was bland. So monotone I almost didn’t listen after the first paragraph! Get a narrator with a little inflection in her voice and this would be an awesome listen! Next time I’ll just read it myself!

Very thrilling with a rather unexpected ending.
