Things haven’t been easy for Emily West. She’s just moved out of her mother’s home, and out from under her thumb, to a new city across the country. Sure, she loves her family, but it was definitely better when they loved each other from a distance. For the first time in her life she’s all alone, but she’s also happy.
Special Agent Reece Knight’s latest case has him completely stumped. He’s been an FBI agent for four years, but he’d never had one like this. There are no leads and no witnesses. At least, none that have ever survived. Someone out there is killing women in his town, and Reece is going to bring him down.
Then, Emily’s peaceful night is interrupted in a way that scares her half to death and shakes the foundations of her entire world. This isn’t something she can go to the police about, but if she doesn’t do something she’ll be left to face a killer alone.
