A brutal killing machine, Merec murders for sheer pleasure. But before he snuffs out his victims' lives, he plays with them, forcing them to reveal their basest nature. All bets are off, though, when he meets Sarah, an enigmatic woman who confounds Merec's cynical expectations by offering her own life in exchange for another's.
Fascinated by her refusal, Merec takes Sarah hostage and begins a barbarous battle of wills that will horrify and mesmerize a bloodthirsty nation and its media -- a twisted cat-and-mouse game, transforming the boundaries between killer and captive as it races toward an explosive end. And only one will survive...

Kate Morgenroth is the author of Kill Me First. Saved is her second novel. She lives in New York City. For more information check out her website at www.katemorgenroth.com.From AudioFile:
Not for the squeamish! The publisher calls this "a nail-biter" with total justification. In this first novel, an insidious killer takes hostage an aging widow with such depressing future prospects that she willingly joins him in his crimes. Though she sounds at times as if fighting a cold, Betty Buckley reads well enough, but she doesn't have the chops to sustain the book's relentless tension. Perhaps, that's a good thing, as full pressure could prove unbearable for the listener. Y.R. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
