Hailed by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution as "one of the most addictive new series heroines", Keye Street is the brilliant, brash heart of a sizzling thriller full of fear and temptation, judgments and secrets, infidelity and murder.
He likes them smart.
In the woods of Whisper, Georgia, two bodies are found: one recently dead, the other decayed from a decade of exposure to the elements. The sheriff is going to need help to track down an experienced predator - one who abducts girls and holds them for months before ending their lives. Enter ex–FBI profiler and private investigator Keye Street.
He lives for the struggle.
After a few weeks, Keye is finally used to sharing her downtown Atlanta loft with her boyfriend, A.P.D. Lieutenant Aaron Rauser. Along with their pets (his dog, her cat) they seem almost like a family. But when Rauser plunks a few ice cubes in a tumbler and pours a whiskey, Keye tenses. Her addiction recovery is tenuous at best.
And loves the fear.
Though reluctant to head out into the country, Keye agrees to assist Sheriff Ken Meltzer. Once in Whisper, where the locals have no love for outsiders, Keye starts to piece together a psychological profile: The killer is someone who stalks and plans and waits. But why does the sociopath hold the victims for so long, and what horrible things must they endure? When a third girl goes missing, Keye races against time to connect the scant bits of evidence. All the while, she cannot shake the chilling feeling: Something dark and disturbing lives in these woods - and it is watching her every move.

"An explosive read... Amanda Kyle Williams sets the classic private eye novel on fire." (Number-one New York Times best-selling author Lee Child)
"If you aren’t reading Amanda Kyle Williams, start - today. The Keye Street series is one of the best around. Don’t Talk to Strangers is gripping and suspenseful, a trip to the deep, dark side of a small Southern town, told with wit and humanity. What are you waiting for?" (Meg Gardiner, author of Phantom Instinct)
The first two books I actually read. They were laugh out loud funny because she painted such a clear picture of her characters and their quirks. I could almost see the scenes. The performance of the narrator in this book was fantastic! I have a new favorite author!
