Fen Dexter’s quiet life is interrupted one stormy night when a blood-covered man shows up on her doorstep claiming to have had a car accident.He tells her he is on his way to San Francisco to help the police solve the murder of his fiance. The next morning he heads to the hospital where Fen’s niece, Vivi, is a doctor. Vivi is treating the most recent target of a serial killer whose signature move is to leave a note saying “Please Don’t Tell” taped across his victims’ mouths. When Fen’s mysterious stranger comes to have his wounds stitched, Vivi agrees to set him up to talk with the police. But who is this man, really? What does he want with Fen and her family?
While sick in bed with THE cold I found this audio book for free from Overdrive so took a chance. It was good in that it had a believable plot and well-rounded characters but there were holes left at the end of the book. Never, did it explain why the killer left the sticky note saying “Please don’t tell” and I’m sorry but why give it that title if you’re not going to explain the meaning in the story, Come on!
It was a bit on the predictable side and I figured out who the killer was but didn’t let it ruin the rest of the book because I liked the chemistry of Fen and her “intruder”.
All in all, it’s not bad, and it did help pass the time while I was sick and feeling sorry for myself.
