Wow, did I devour this thriller! This was a great, fast-paced story that kept me totally enthralled. It’s the first in a series by Alexandra Sokoloff and I can’t wait for the next. A thoroughly likeable and totally believable FBI agent is pitted against a complex, fascinating serial killer, who – against all odds – is female. Why is she killing these seemingly unrelated victims? And why is former top profiler, FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke, so reluctant to get drawn back into profiling? This was a clever, interesting story, told extremely well. I couldn’t put it down and cannot recommend it highly enough.
A Thriller Award nominee for Best eBook Original Novel… Book 1 in award-winning author Alexandra Sokoloff’s riveting new Huntress FBI series about a driven FBI agent on the hunt for that most rare of all killers: a female serial.
FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is closing in on a bust of a major criminal organization in San Francisco when he witnesses an undercover member of his team killed right in front of him on a busy street, an accident Roarke can’t believe is coincidental. His suspicions put him on the trail of a mysterious young woman who appears to have been present at each scene of a years-long string of “accidents” and murders, and who may well be that most rare of killers: a female serial.
Roarke’s hunt for her takes him across three states…while in a small coastal town, a young father and his five-year old son, both wounded from a recent divorce, encounter a lost and compelling young woman on the beach and strike up an unlikely friendship without realizing how deadly she may be.
As Roarke uncovers the shocking truth of her background, he realizes she is on a mission of her own, and must race to capture her before more blood is shed.
