The collection isn’t complete without her….
The writer becomes the story when crime reporter Mia Hale is discovered on a beach in Jacksonville, Florida—bloodied and disoriented but alive. She remembers nothing, but her wounds bear the signature of a sadistic serial killer. After years lying dormant, the Collector has resumed his grim hobby of abducting women and taking gruesome souvenirs before dumping their bodies. Not one of his victims has ever escaped—and he wants Mia back more than he ever wanted any of the others.
FBI agent Eric MacFarlane has pursued the Collector for a long time—the case runs deep in his veins, bordering on obsession—and now Mia holds the key. She’ll risk everything to recover her memory and bring the madman to justice, and Eric swears to protect this fierce, fragile survivor. But the Collector will not be denied. In his mind he knows just how their story ends.

"A smooth prose style and an authentic Big Easy vibe distinguish Tentler’s debut...the shivers are worthy of a Lisa Jackson." (Publishers Weekly)
"A compelling plot, thick suspense, a cunning villain, a shattered cop, and a victim who wants answers at any cost place Tentler in the same category as bestselling authors Lisa Jackson and Beverly Barton. Four and a half stars rating." (RT Book Reviews)
I have now read all three of the books in this series - my 2 quibbles are the lack of real passion between the main characters - or - the believability of it. And in all three of these books the leading female character has 2 or three instances of completely too stupid to live moments where she puts herself in danger after significant threats have already been made. I find that a very annoying trait in someone who should have more sense.
The actual mystery plot was good. The leading lady's dumb moves kept pulling me out of the story.
It was o.k. Could have been a lot better with a smarter leading character. She would do smart things and then turn around and do something so stupid it pulled you out of the story and made you want to give up on the book.
