Evan O’Conner isn’t a normal child. His father’s alcoholism and mother’s abuse drives him to concoct a plan to rid his life of them permanently. The night is fraught with a horrendous storm, thunder and lightning as the beast inside him is born. Even in her death his mother won’t leave. She haunts his subconscious as he attempts over and over to kill her.

Evan meets his match when Officer Burkhlader enters the picture. One of her closest friends and his family fall victim to violent deaths during the worst hurricane Billows Hollow has ever seen. With only a sketch she learns the identity of the perpetrator and digs into his life, pries into his past – hunting him. Will she stop him? Or will somebody else?

My experience is based on the audio book. I am a fan of this series. It has many elements that make it complex and well written. This story is told through the psychopath of Evan. It was extremely disturbing to be put in his mindset. It gave me the chills and nightmares. I loved it. It was disturbing and completely crazy. Evan is a great main character because of how twisted his mind is. I feel it gives you a glimpse of a mind of a serial killer. My favorite part was the very end. I was clapping and hollering at work while listening. I think my coworkers might think I am crazy. An element of the book is astrology. I thought that was a unique twist and added a more developed plot. I would recommend this series to my thriller loving friends who aren't afraid of some gruesome realities. My audio experience was fantastic. The narrator added such passion behind each word that I was blown away. I quickly became entranced with his voice and the emotions behind it. I was pleasantly surprised how well he did. I plan on following this narrators career because it is going to be great. I will listen to him again.
