For Susannah Quinn, heartbreakingly handsome detective Christian Cavanaugh O'Bannon is trouble that she doesn't need.
Still, her CSI instincts tell her a serial killer's on the loose, so she agrees to work this case with Chris through long days--and even hotter nights.
But his reckless charm is allowing him perilously close to her darkest secrets.
Going by the book has never been freewheeling Chris's style, so an unofficial partnership with Susannah is just what he needs to stop a vicious murderer in his tracks.
While he struggles to win the beautiful blonde's trust, mutual desire puts them both in harm's way...
Third amazing thriller on a row! I loved this story, I think it is my favorite Cavanaugh story so far.
The suspense was well built. The cases detective Christian Cavanaugh O'Bannon and CSI Susannah Quinn are investigating are terrifying, menacing, and have a serious creepy factor in them that might seep into your dreams. There's just that air of hopelessness and frightening threat with little clues and terrifying possibilities that gave the cases the eerie effect.
Christian and Susannah were lively, energetic, and enthusiastic characters. They both have the passion for justice and doing the right thing. The sizzle between them was rather entertaining, and attraction they felt for each other was intense.
The way they communicated was through constant banter and bickering that was just on the border of not tipping over to the side of being mean and hurtful. Especially Suzie Q danced on the edge of being a 'mean girl', her words holding her defenses and keeping her at safe distance, so her family's past wouldn't be revealed.
Intriguing murder cases to be investigated gets Chris and Suzie a chance to spend time together and get to know each other while catching a vile criminal. The action and suspense are fast-paced and captivating, the drizzle of clues to solve the case exciting. The alluring passion that awakens between Chris and Suzie takes them both by surprise, as they find to be equal partners both while investigating the murders and developing a relationship. A riveting and enticing story all around!
