A relentless FBI profiler hunts a vicious killer.

When old evidence turns up on a fresh corpse, ASAC Lincoln Frazer is determined it won’t delay the execution of a convicted serial killer. But when more young women are brutally slain, it becomes clear—this new killer is intimately familiar with the old murders.

A dedicated emergency physician hides a dark secret.

Former Army Captain Dr. Isadora Campbell helped her mother hide a terrible crime. After her mother’s death, Izzy resigned her commission and returned to the Outer Banks to raise her rebellious teenage sister. But it doesn’t take long for Izzy to suspect that someone knows exactly what she did, all those years ago.

If they work together, maybe no one else will die.

With pressure mounting to reopen the old case, Frazer will use any means possible to catch the killer. Thrust together during the investigation, he and Izzy find themselves reluctantly attracted to one another, and begin an affair. Meanwhile, the killer is much closer than they think. Izzy’s confession of her secret drives Frazer away as he struggles with her deception. By the time he realizes he’s fallen in love with the stubborn woman, the killer has her. Now the race is on to save Izzy, and any chance of a future they might have together.



A convicted murderer is days away from execution when a body is found in the NC Outer Banks that has his signature. FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Lincoln Frazer is dispatched to investigate as he doesn’t want anything delaying this creep’s date with death. He collides with Dr. Isabel (Izzy) Campbell who was one of the first on the scene and has a personal connection. While their attraction is immediate, it’s in both of their best interests to not go there.

This was an extremely creepy and disturbing story that kept me off balance until the end. Izzy’s secret wasn’t revealed in one big scene, but slowly unveiled throughout the story and woven masterfully with the pace of current events. Lincoln was über chilly and it was delightful to see him finally be disarmed by Izzy. I also liked how utterly skilled he was as an investigator. Nothing got in his way.

I changed my deductions about the identity of the killer and the plot so many times it was embarrassing. Just another well done story in this series with scary villains, exciting climaxes and steamy romances. I’m ready for the next one and Anderson will forever be an auto buy.


The first book in the series, A Cold Dark Fear, is currently free!

I LOVE reading and am just crazy about so many series and writers. I’m open to exploring new authors and genres and appreciate those who not only write well but can deliciously craft a character and a tale. Your suggestions for new authors and titles are very much welcomed.

I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
