Motive, opportunity, and no alibi—it seems close to a slam-dunk. But while rookie detective Allison Doyle’s department has ID’d a suspect in a young woman’s vicious murder, she is uneasy. Then legendary FBI profiler Mark Wolfe shows up with a startling theory: if he’s right, the real murderer is an elusive psychopath just days away from another kill.
Using Allison’s contacts at the Delphi Center crime lab, Wolfe is finally in striking distance of the monster he’s pursued for ten years. Except that as they work together, Wolfe finds the ambitious, stubborn woman a tempting distraction. And with this brutal predator, every thread of evidence can make the difference between being the hunter . . . and the prey.
Even though this was not the first in the series, I LOVED IT!! I was caught up in the story from the very beginning. I could not and did not want to put it down.
First off, I absolutely loved Mark. He was such a great character. I definitely loved all the scenes that he was in. He just seemed to steal them!
Laura Griffin created just enough twists and turns in the plot to keep me guessing. And even though I didn’t have all the back story from the previous books, I didn’t feel completely lost. So yes, this book can be read as a stand alone.
However, I plan on getting the previous books to keep me occupied until the next one comes out. I definitely don’t want to miss any of these great books.
