From the back cover: This could be the case of their careers…if they can survive long enough to solve it.
Two homicides have rocked the city of Houston. Are they the work of a serial killer, or is a copycat trying to get away with murder?
That is the question facing Special Agent Bethany Sanchez, who is eager for her new assignment in violent crimes but anxious about meeting her new partner. Special Agent Thatcher Graves once arrested her brother, and he has a reputation for being a maverick. Plus, their investigative styles couldn’t be more opposite: he operates on instinct, while she goes by the book.
When hot leads soon fizzle out, their differences threaten to leave them deadlocked. But an attempt on their lives turns up the heat and brings them closer together, and a third victim might yield the clue that will help them zero in on a killer. This could be the case of their careers . . . if they can survive long enough to solve it.
What is more dangerous a serial killer or a one-time murderer trying to mask his actions by making it look as though the serial killer did it? Bethany has been around murder before but she is new to violent crimes so she is, temporarily, out of her league. Thatcher is a long time pro and these two have a history already. Now these two not only have to work together but they have to stay alive to solve this case. Bethany and Thatcher are authentic, well-defined characters and so is the way they handle situations. I think this is Ms. Mills best work yet. Once the action gets going Ms. Mills revs up the thriller quotient considerably which will have you reading and flipping pages as fast as you can. Don’t start this book late at night because it will be very difficult to put it down. And did I mention there is romance as well? I recommend this book highly and am greatly looking forward to the next book in the series.
