New York City's oldest medical center is the scene of a ghastly attack: top neurosurgeon Gemma Dogen is found in her office, where she has been sexually assaulted and designated by the cops as a "likely to die." By the time assistant D.A. Alexandra Cooper has plunged into the case, it's a high-profile, media-infested murder investigation. As Alex's passion to find the killer intensifies, she discovers that she is the next target for lethal violence.

    The story itself is fine and typical of the series. I am a bit fed up with the protagonist always being a victim in the cases she works; that is the only element of these stories that I find hard to swallow. This recording is one of the worst I have ever heard among the many recording books I have listened too, including those on cassette tape. Also, the abridgement was awful. I felt that lot of the story had to have been cut out because this one only comprised 3 CD's and the chapters were very short. If you are a fan of the series then select this book, but do not judge the entire series by the poor quality of this one selection.

    I actually checked this out of the library while waiting on my SimplyAudio selections to arrive. The story was fine, no problem there, but I'm writing this because the reader stood out to me so much. I listen to tons of audio CD's and there are readers I enjoy more than others, but on this book, the reader was horrible. As she changed her voice for the different characters, she made some of them sound like they had learning disabilities. It was really effected sounding and distracted me the whole time I was listening. If I saw this reader on other CD's, I wouldn't select them!

    This was the first book by this author I had listened to. I can't wait for more. I like the fast paced story and how you get caught up with the characters.
