HYDE by Dan Mahoney (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“[Mahoney] treats us to some of the finest police work since William Canutiz.” (The New York Times Book Review)
NYPD Detective Brian McKenna is hunting down a mysterious killer who preys upon the city’s most forgotten members: a succession of homeless men, all of them HIV-positive. McKenna must chase this sinister figure from Manhattan through Europe and finally to Costa Rica to uncover the astounding truth.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s narrator, Adams Morgan. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“This rapid-fire narration leaves the listener panting with anticipation and tension for the next detailed step….” (AudioFile)

NYPD Detective Brian McKenna is back where he belongs: hunting down a mysterious killer who preys upon the city’s most forgotten members. At first, it seems as if these homeless men have frozen to death on the city streets, but McKenna soon finds that all of the victims were HIV-positive, and all were seen taking their last drink from a bottle of wine given to them by a gaunt, black-clad man called “Hyde.” Who is he, and why is he killing harmless men who are already at death’s door? A hell-bent McKenna must chase the murderer from Manhattan through Europe and finally to Costa Rica to find the truth.
