From investigative journalist Vanessa Skye comes a thrilling crime fiction debut that challenges the concept of justice, asks if vengeance justifies murder, and explores whether you can ever heal from a broken past. While exploring darkness in others, be certain not to expose your own. Chicago Detective Alicia Raymond, aka Berg, is a woman on the edge. She's assigned to investigate the gruesome torture and murder of a middle-aged trucker with a horrible secret, but as she delves deeper, the crime gets more baffling. While simultaneously under attack from a formidable past, an enemy that seems to know too much, and a conniving killer, Berg is forced to confront her own psychopathy: her obsessive need to track down killers at the expense of everything else, and her increasing craving for violence just to feel normal. So when she also finds herself sympathizing with a sadistic butcher exacting revenge for a decades-old crime, she has a choice to make: surrender to the evil inside or finally acknowledge the brutal childhood she would rather bury.

Our customer reviews

Right from the outset, The Enemy Inside has you in its grip and does not let you go until the very end. With every twist and turn you find yourself trapped, wanting to know where you are being lead, yet half afraid of what you will find when you get there. I thoroughly enjoyed reading what is the first of the series of books and can not wait to read Broken, the second book in the series. I am not a fan of novels where I feel as though I have solved the mystery one third of the way in. The Enemy Inside does NOT fall into that category. If you enjoy a good thriller and have a love for detective stories, this book is a must! I can not rate it high enough!show more

This is an amazing book! I love a good thriller but have not been able to find any lately where you weren't able to pick who did it by halfway through the book, that is until I read The Enemy Inside. Vanessa takes you on an absolute journey from start to finish with extremely rich yet flawed and vulnerable characters. The twists and turns keep you guessing right up to the last page which is precisely what a thriller should do. I have lost sleep over this book as I could not put it down. I cannot wait for the next instalments. It is safe to say a legendary thriller writer has arrived. Brilliant!show more
