In the still shadows of the confessional, the
penitent kneels and makes a bone-chilling disclosure: “Bless me father, for I
will sin.” Slowly, tauntingly, the man describes his murderous past: how he
stalked his victim, worked his way into her life, and then took that life in a
violent rage, and his plan to kill again. Only this time, he has raised the
stakes in his twisted game, daring authorities to catch him if they can. This
time, he has revealed the name of his next intended victim.
Agent Nick Buchanan has come face-to-face with
society’s worst monsters and depraved minds in his work for one of the FBI’s
most elite units. He’s about to take a much needed vacation from his high-stress
job when he’s called on to stop the killer who has mockingly confessed to the
deadly crime he’s to commit. Nick can’t refuse, for this time the threat has
hit close to home. The intended victim is his best friend’s sister. Soon he is
caught up in an intricate chase with one of the most devious psychopaths of his
career in a case that suddenly, unexpectedly, pulls him in like no other.

Buchanan. As an electrifying attraction grows between Laurant and Nick, so does
the danger, and one false move will cost both of them everything that matters.
