"I trusted you, Caity."The still of the night is once again shattered by Caitlyn Cahill’s recurring nightmare - her brother standing before her, gripping a - butcher knife, his eyes black with hatred. Two years ago, the former Washington, DC, socialite defied her powerful senator father and risked the ruin of her family by helping the FBI link her troubled brother to a string of horrific murders. The "Capital Killer" was sent to prison for life - and Caitlyn’s entire world fell apart.
Now FBI agent Reid Novak is forced to rend the peace Caitlyn has found on a rural Virginia horse farm. A copycat killer is on the loose and slowly toying with Caitlyn - his ultimate target - in a terrifying cat-and-mouse game. Almost destroyed two years ago by Caitlyn’s family, not to mention the Capital Killer’s haunting final murder, Reid vows to save the woman he’s never forgotten - or die trying.

"The fast-paced, well-planned plot will keep readers hooked. Caitlyn and Reid are intriguing, multidimensional characters who are easy to identify with, and the relationship that develops between them folds nicely into the suspense." (RT Book Reviews)
It was o.k. 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.
Smarter moves by the leading lady please...
Classic Entertaining Suspense
I loved the suspense and the fast pace. It is certainly a formulaic mystery and I wasn't wholly surprised by the twists. (I won't spoil by giving details.) But things happen so quickly and there isn't time to get too far ahead of the plot.
I really really liked this narrator and am surprised another review made such a point to say they disliked her. (Remind them of someone?)
For me, she gave life to the book and the characters which would otherwise have been a little two dimensional.
The author throws a romance in for the protagonists that doesn't work for me. But I appreciated her attempt to give depth to these wounded people. Again, I think the narratotion helped me care more than I would have.
I got a kick out of the reporter. I won't give more than that because there are so many ways to spoil the suspense!
It's hard to write a review of this without giving it away. So I'll just say that it's fun and not too taxing. Good for a road trip...
No. The narrator made it very difficult to finish this book. The only reason I finished was the story.
The growing attraction between Kaitlin and Reed.
I would not recommend a film for this book.
Do no use this narrator again!
