Gwen Proctor escaped her serial-killer husband and saved her family. What she can’t seem to outrun is his notoriety. Or the sick internet vigilantes still seeking to avenge his crimes. For Gwen, hiding isn’t an option. Not when her only mission is to create a normal life for her kids.

But now, a threatened woman has reached out. Marlene Crockett, from the remote town of Wolfhunter, is panicked for herself and her daughter. When Gwen arrives in the small, isolated rural community, Marlene is already dead - her own daughter blamed for the murder. Except that’s not the person Marlene feared at all. And Gwen isn’t leaving until she finds out who that was.

But it may already be too late. A trap has been set. And it’s poised to snap shut on everyone Gwen loves. Her stalkers are closing in. And in a town as dark as Wolfhunter, it’s so easy for them to hide…

Listen to a sample:

My #Audible Review:

Wolfhunter River
Rachel Caine 
Book three in Rachel Caine’s Stillhouse Lake series is just as dark and just as fabulous as the first two. She gives us a plot with so many unexpected twists and turns that you’d think it would be hard to follow but it’s not, oh yes readers/listeners will come away with whiplash, and yes some of them will catch the audience off guard but the author dangles just enough clues to keep fans on top of things as they unfold. The blunt dialogue and eerie atmospheric scenes add a noir like quality to the novel and fans will see a lot of character growth in Gwen, Sam and both kids plus they’ll see some past characters and a new batch of which both good and evil are fantastic. Fans will learn a bit more about Sam’s background and will see Gwen, Lannie and Conner heal a little to become a more solid family unit. This series will appeal to fans of dark thrillers that hint of horror. Series needs to be read in order.
The multiple narrators continue to fit the character(s) perfectly and make this a series that listeners will love.
Gwen Proctor’s life and the lives of her two children Lannie and Conner has never been the same since she learned by accident that her husband was a serial killer using their garage for his torture and murder chamber. She was tried as his accomplice and acquitted but that doesn’t stop the hate from the people who don’t believe she’s innocent. One of those people, Gwen’s fiercest adversary is the mother of one of her exes victims and has made it her life’s mission to prove Gwen’s guilt. It doesn’t matter that they were victims too these fanatics will never believe she wasn’t involved and now this woman has funded a documentary and the crew has shown up enforce in Stillhouse Lake, the community where they have decided to call home. There’s also trouble on the home front, Gwen knows that Sam is hiding something but will give him time to tell her and her kids deserve some peace and quiet. So they decide to take a road trip until things quiet down at home, heading up to Wolfhunter River to answer a mysterious plea for help that Gwen received from a stranger. Unfortunately when they get there it’s not peace they find but trouble with a capital T.
