Lucy Kincaid has firsthand experience dealing with deadly criminal predators, and she’s fully prepared to share her many talents with the FBI. But when her career plans are derailed, her boyfriend, security expert Sean Rogan, asks for help on his latest private investigation. Using her well-honed cyber-hunting skills, Lucy is soon on the trail of a missing teenage girl with a penchant for disappearing—and a shocking secret life.
FBI Agent Suzanne Madeaux is also tracking someone: a serial killer on the loose in New York City. Dubbed by the press the Cinderella Strangler, he cruises seamy underground sex parties, where drug-fueled women make for easy pickings. As Lucy and Sean’s desperate search collides with the FBI’s hunt, Lucy isn’t about to step aside. Haunted by painful memories of her own harrowing encounters with evil, she’s determined to keep any more innocents from meeting the fate she so narrowly escaped. Delving deep into the twisted psyche of a remorseless killer, Lucy must confront her own fears—even if it means risking a future job with the FBI and future happiness with Sean.

I'm addicted to audiobooks, particularly thrillers and erotic reads. I'd love for you to follow my reviews!
I figured out the killer pretty soon after we met that character, and that made the rest of the book less fun for me. I like to be surprised and feel like the author/killer outwitted me. I also felt like the romance was a distraction and I was constantly cognizant that the author was setting up a series in this book. For example leaving breadcrumbs about things that she didn't talk more about in THIS story, but you could tell she would broach in future stories. Overall I enjoyed it, but I prefer Lisa Gardner's books.
I love dark gritty thrillers, mystery, psychological, police procedural, and horror with the romance set at a minimum to none.
yes, this was better than the first in the series by far. You can start to see Lucy in action and it was fun trying to figure out who the killer was.
I liked trying to figure out who the killer was and I enjoyed seeing Lucy work with Suzanne.
Her voice, its not right for Lucy, its too girly.
Love you to Death
This has to be the best seriesI I have ever listened to. I love Lucy and Sean. Allison has very good storylines in her books. They are interestig and exiting. With love and intrigue you ca't lose. My favorite part outside of the story itself is the relationship between Lucy and Sean. Very well written. I recommend the whole series
Plot was predictable and not particularly engaging. Lucy's relationship was a non-starter and should have been left out. It added nothing to the story.
ditch the relationship
didn't have a favorite
The entire first couple hours of the book I kept checking to see if I was on part 1 or part 2. Unfortunately I was on part 1. The book is so unbelievably choppy I couldn't follow it. I kept thinking I had missed several chapters or even a previous book. The men characters are all angry at life and each other and the women characters are very self absorbed and whiney. Even the narrator would have been better off reading romance novels. She is not very good at any kind of suspense. I found myself continuely rolling my eyes and wanting the book to be over.
Say something about yourself!
I usually really like this author but I did not even get past chapter eight! I have to say that the narrator was REALLY bad. The male voices that she attempted made the whole thing impossible to listen too- I really tried but finally after several hours of listening I had to turn it off.
An entire new subject matter. About one half dozen editors and the reincarnation of real, live Kay Hooper. Also, it would help if members had the ability to return at least one rotten book and then allowed to chose from another entirely different author.
No, but Kay Hooper has fouled out for now. What is really scary is that I have the entire Lucy series. Six books that I hope get a lot better. REALLY, DON'T LET OLD GOOD REVIEWS FOOL YOU . I'M DOOMED.
Nope, nada, not one ioda
