Jim Doyle has a secret.  Eve Black is determined to bring that secret to the light.   

Once known as the Nothing Man, the terrifying serial killer of Cork, Ireland, now Jim Doyle works as a security guard in a grocery store.  Eve Black was the sole survivor of his last attack, one that left her mother, father, and younger sister dead.  And now Jim is surrounded by Eve's best selling book about the Nothing Man, the one vowing to catch him. 

Reminiscent of the Golden State killer, Howard delves into the mind of a man who was once an active serial killer, dispelling the myth that these men are too smart to get caught, too evil to be banished.  She also leaves the reader stunned with some unexpected twists. 

The audiobook is fantastic!  Dual narrators, Alana Kerr Collins and John Keating, are excellent!  Keating is a favorite narrator of mine, and he nails Jim Doyle.  I was so engrossed with the audiobook, that it was a struggle to turn it off and go to work.
