Detective Porter and the team have been pulled from the hunt for Anson Bishop, the Four Monkey Killer, by the feds. When the body of a young girl is found beneath the frozen waters of Jackson Park Lagoon, she is quickly identified as Ella Reynolds, missing three weeks. But how did she get there? The lagoon froze months earlier. More baffling? She's found wearing the clothes of another girl, missing less than two days. While the detectives of Chicago Metro try to make sense of the quickly developing case, Porter secretly continues his pursuit of 4MK, knowing the best way to find Bishop is to track down his mother. When the captain finds out about Porter's activities, he's suspended, leaving his partners Clair and Nash to continue the search for the new killer alone. Obsessed with catching Bishop, Porter follows a single grainy photograph from Chicago to the streets of New Orleans and stumbles into a world darker than he could have possibly imagined, where he quickly realizes that the only place more frightening than the mind of a serial killer is the mind of the mother from which he came.

"Entertaining from start to finish, this is a thriller listeners will remember. Narrated superbly by Edoardo Ballerini and Graham Winton, the story focuses on Detective Sam Porter and his colleagues' hunt for Anson Bishop, the Four Monkey Killer, whom they believe is responsible for the many dead bodies that turn up. The story juxtaposes the search for 4MK and the attendant challenge of finding a connection among the victims using Bishop's chilling diary. Ballerini's delivery of the story is perfect, presenting the characters with distinct voices and ample narrative drive. Winton inhabits Bishop's psyche, using an appropriately creepy tone to deliver the psychopath's perverted perspectives. While some will consider the story flawed because it fails to provide a resolution, listeners will be eager for a sequel. D.J.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
