Chicago has a new resident; a heartless killer on a decade-long crime spree. When a successful young woman is found dead in her fashionable townhome, a red flag goes up in Washington, DC. The FBI knows an elusive “organized killer” is at work again. The problem is the Feds have only one tenuous lead to assist local police in the manhunt, a most unlikely place the killer likes to find his victims.

Kristen Conner is light one her feet and packs a powerful punch, growing up in a cop’s home, intense hand-to-hand combat training, and not being able to shoot a handgun straight, all encourage that. Her life is built on faith and family: she coaches her seven-year-old niece’s soccer team, the Snowflakes, always shows up hungry for family dinner, and only misses church when she is fighting with her glamorous television news reporter sister, or relentlessly tracking down a ruthless killer.

    " Wow ! was I reading the same book? I trudged through 200 pages before I started to skim read. Yuck, this murder mystery was like watching paint dry. No, worse. "

    " Great police procedural about a serial killer and a feisty female detective with a large extended family. Very suspenseful but clean with no sex or language and a heroine who talks to God. Definitely a thrilling thriller. "

    " An excellent thriller, well-written and paced, with just enough detail for realism but nothing gratuitous. Otherwise clean (no swearing, no sex), which I appreciated. I look forward to reading more in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 11/30/2012

    " Debut Inspirational -- A little slow to start, but then the action really takes off. This story reads like a thriller and is light on the religious aspect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Harrison | 11/22/2012

    " Good book. I enjoyed the character of the police woman. The author threw in a second love interest but didn't develop it may be part of a new story that was hinted at in the end. I will recommend it to customers. "
