Young beautiful women are disappearing. Different types, with different backgrounds, most with a lot of debt, few friends, and no close family to speak of. Gone. Someone is collecting trophies. Only one person can see it. Special Agent Emma Kane. Kane knows she'll need help on this ordeal. But the only man who can help her, famed profiler Jacob Thorne, is no longer speaking to her. The clock is ticking and Kane herself is now a target of whoever is doing this.

For some unknown reason I stuck it out through this book, badly written, horrible narration and sounds like something written for a 15 year old.

Chef and popular blogger Amanda Johnson hopes publishing her memoir will provide healing and justice. Her estranged husband, contractor and veteran soldier Mark Johnson, tries to talk her out of it, fearing the psychiatrist who seduced her when she was a teen might return to silence her. But Amanda doesn't need advice, certainly not from her judgmental soon-to-be ex-husband. Her overconfidence makes her vulnerable when she travels out of town and runs into the abuser from her past.

Beneath the surface of Nina Holt's perfect marriage lurks a life of terror inflicted upon her by her politically powerful husband, Michael, and his brother, Greg, a sadistic detective. For over a decade they have managed to keep Nina imprisoned, using her to satisfy their every whim. Worse still, the only light in her life - her nine-year-old son, Sam - considers Michael a hero. When Sam imitates Michael's violence by lashing out at her, Nina knows it's time for both of them to escape before Sam truly turns into the monster Michael is grooming him to become.

Started out as a promising thriller but turned quickly into unbelievable romancing mush. I could hardly wait for it to finish.

Don't know why I didn't return this book, it's like a whiney, endless soap and the narrator does absolutely nothing to lift it up. I will not continue with this series.

A wayward hitman, mourning a recent loss, arrives in a tiny town on Norway's far northeastern border. He calls himself Ulf and gives a halfhearted excuse for his presence, but the locals, who seem as if out of a folk story from a previous century, ask him few questions and supply him with food, shelter, and a gun. In his previous life, Ulf worked as a fixer for The Fisherman, one of the cruelest drug kings in Oslo, a man whose reach spans the globe.
