FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is closing in on a bust of a major criminal organization in San Francisco when he witnesses an undercover member of his team killed right in front of him on a busy street, an accident Roarke can't believe is coincidental. His suspicions put him on the trail of a mysterious young woman who appears to have been present at each scene of a years-long string of accidents and murders, and who may well be that most rare of killers: a female serial.
Roarke's hunt for her takes him across three states... while in a small coastal town, a young father and his five-year-old son, both wounded from a recent divorce, encounter a lost and compelling young woman on the beach and strike up an unlikely friendship without realizing how deadly she may be.
As Roarke uncovers the shocking truth of her background, he realizes she is on a mission of her own, and he must race to capture her before more blood is shed.
I was very lucky to be contacted by the author, to see if I would be interested in reading this book.
I was thrilled when I realized that I could have it in audio. it meant that I could start it that night. I was working a night shift, and it's great to have something to listen to.
This was a brilliant Audio book to listen to. The Narrator just seems to get the right balance between the voices of characters, I loved how this was read. A very soothing, interesting voice. That in parts felt like I was having a documentary read to me.
Brilliant. Very well written. And one that had it been a tree or E book, it would have been hard to put down.
It is something I will be listening to again this week, as soon as I get chance.
The characters in the book, were brilliant. the plot was really good. Another brilliant crime thriller, for all you crime fans out there.
Well worth reading.
Matthew Roarke, is a special agent with the FBI, his case involves figuring out what happened to one of his undercover agents. He has been hit by a truck, but everything is pointing to this being no accident.
A female was spotted at the scene, a female that seems to have been spotted in a number of other places, linked with other deaths. Who is she? Does she have any involvement in the crime, or is her presence just a big coincidence.
Roarke sets out to try and find this woman, and this is when his case gets going. A whole big jigsaw that he and his team need to piece together bit by tiny little bit.
All in all a really good read, and I look forward to reading more from this author.
