A ruthless killer hides in plain sight, someone no one believes is capable of murder. Within a week, six women will be murdered, all punished for their dark pasts. Detective Dani Cole is determined to track down this serial killer whose victims include a young woman she pulled out of a life of crime. Her investigation leads her to a photography foundation and the renowned photographer Mitch Sheridan, a man she she fell in love with years ago but has tried to forget. Dani and Mitch are instantly attracted to each other again, though their troubled pasts keep them from getting too close. Together, through the course of the investigation, they unearth a dark chain of deception that leads to a killer who is closer than they think.show more

Our customer reviews

A woman is found dead in a park, and Dani Cole, still recovering from the suicide of her father two weeks before, is called into the case. Then Dani finds out that the dead woman is a former prostitute that Dani helped steer away from the street, and the search for her killer gets personal. The hunt leads her to Mitch Sheridan, a former childhood sweetheart, now turned photojournalist on a mission to help save the world, who owns a photography studio and runs a charity foundation. When Mitch sees Dani, the flame is instantly re-ignited, but Dani continues to push him away in her hunt for what appears to be a serial killer. In untangling the murders, there is the POV of the killer, a black-market baby ring, and another murder that may also be linked to the serial murders. This was a somewhat convoluted plot, with varying POV's, and a weird psychopathic killer - usually right up my alley, but for some reason, this book didn't do it for me. I like to be involved in the book, and feel some connection to the characters, and that didn't happen here. A rather formulaic plot, hero, heroine, and offbeat killer (not always bad, mind you), but with nothing new to pull me in, and sex scenes that were rather too graphic and really didn't fit the character of the book. I was interested, but not very much. QUOTES (*** indicates redaction of possible spoiler): He knew where the bodies were buried - literally. He'd put them there. And Fulton's type wasn't easy to find. A misdiagnosed schizophrenic who was really a sociopath, Fulton had been born without that quirk of chemistry that allowed for emotion. There were no therapies or medications for men like him; modern psychiatry hadn't yet learned how to manufacture a conscience. "That could be, but *** didn't tell me he was having an affair with an eighteen-year-old hooker or that he was planning to kill her and then shoot himself and jump off a bridge." "That's not the point. The point is that I would've killed him. Without a second thought, if he'd laid a hand on you, Dani, i could have blown the sonofa___ away." She cracked a smile. "You talk so purty." Writing: 4 out of 5 stars Plot: 3 out of 5 stars Characters: 2 out of 5 stars Reading Immersion: 2.5 out 5 stars BOOK RATING: 2.8 out of 5 starsshow more
