      • bioText: Alaina Urquhart is the science-loving co-host of the chart-topping show Morbid: A True Crime Podcast. As an autopsy technician by trade, she offers a unique perspective from deep inside the morgue. Alaina hails from Boston, where she lives with her wonderful husband, John, their three amazing daughters, and a ghost puggle named Bailey. She is about 75 percent coffee, and truly believes she and Agent Clarice Starling could be friends. Before writing her first psychological horror novel, she received degrees in criminal justice, psychology, and biology. When she isn't hosting Morbid, she hosts the Parcast original show Crime Countdown, and a horror movie podcast called Scream! Her days are usually spent either recording or eviscerating. The way she sees it, when she hangs up her microphone for the day, it's time to let the dead speak.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: The thrilling cat-and-mouse game played by a serial killer named Jeremy and the local forensic pathologist comes chillingly alive through a tense narration by Sophie Amoss and Joe Knezevich. Knezevich fully realizes the gratification Jeremy experiences when he describes in graphic detail what he does to his victims, always thinking ahead to his next quarry. The pure evil in his voice cuts deep. Amoss carries her own as Wren, the confident young woman who is assigned to find this monster on the loose in New Orleans. Wren's horror when she first encounters Jeremy makes for riveting listening. A bonus of two deleted chapters of Jeremy's vile thoughts and Urquhart describing her writing process is icing on the cake. Patricia Cornwell fans will relish this debut. S.D.B.
