New York City. With a population of almost 19 million people, it’s easy to remain anonymous - even if you’re a serial killer, torturing and murdering beautiful young women. The killer has another victim right now, locked in a basement somewhere in the city. For NYPD detectives Turner and Marcinko, it’s their job to sift through those 19 million and narrow their list to the one before it’s too late. And they’re sure they have the right man in their sights.
Fusing alternating viewpoints with devastating precision, Leather’s top-notch thriller dives deep into the mind of a demented killer as tension mounts immeasurably. Turner and Marcinko’s prime suspect is screenwriter wannabe Marvin Waller. He is becoming increasingly frustrated by his lack of success and the cops think he might be channeling his anger into murder, yet he doesn’t seem to be at all concerned that they are hot on his trail. As Turner and Marcinko close in on Waller they have to wonder: is he the killer? And if he isn’t - who is? Only time will tell - and time is one thing they do not have.
An unrelenting vice-grip of suspense and fear, The Basement is the ultimate shocker with a shattering climax that will leave you battered, bruised, and broken.
What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He brings the story to life and makes it more real and disturbing, yet captivating too. Still, I'm glad it wasn't longer.
Any additional comments?
I knew fairly fast I was being tricked, but never saw this end coming.

What an ending... Narrated well and - Did not see that coming at all!
I struggled hard to get thru this book, it was almost a waste of time.
This is only my opinion.
it was a story within a story within a story. you never knew where you were since no chapters were mentioned. It ran together with hardly a break to direct you into each story. It seemed that the writer wanted to keep you confused between the screenplay writer and his numerous stories,, as he told you about the each screenplay he was writing and the main sorry about what was happening in the basement.
The final hour or so was the best part of the book.
The narrator was ok, not the best I've heard but certainly not the worse.
Would you listen to The Basement again? Why?
No, because once the murdered is revealed I think it would not be as riveting.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
It's not easy to guess what was coming
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
I wish the author had more 'stand alone' stories like this book. There are too many 'series' books.
Nice quick good story. The ending was a pretty good surprise. I really like this narrator.
