APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We think we could easily spot a serial killer from their creepy menace and bad vibes. But the murderer in Catherine Ryan Howard’s innovative mystery is disturbing for the opposite reason—he’s so normal. When Eve Black was a child, her family was brutally murdered by a psychopath known as the Nothing Man. As an adult, Eve’s determined to catch him herself, and she’s even published a memoir detailing her investigation. The bestseller is showing up on everyone’s reading list…including the killer’s. Howard messes with our expectations at every turn; for example, she reveals the Nothing Man’s identity at the beginning of the book! We loved, loved, loved listening to this tense game of cat and mouse. It’s exciting to flip between the perspectives of the two main characters, brilliantly voiced by a duo of narrators: the surly voice of John Keating for the Nothing Man and the Irish lilt of Alana Kerr Collins for Eve. This hair-raising listen will make you lock your doors.
