FBI Special Agent Paige Carson hoped she’d be able to start a new life in small-town South Carolina. But when a senator’s sister is murdered and a blank postcard is left next to the body, Paige realizes that a killer from her past has found her–and is sending her a very personal message.
From the moment he hired her, FBI Special Agent in Charge Sam McKade knew Paige was hiding something. Prompted by this recent threat, she finally opens up: one year ago, she caught the eye of suspected serial killer Todd Thames. Now he’s come back to pull her into his game, whether she wants to play or not.
As the danger increases, Paige and Sam give in to their growing attraction, and he vows to protect her no matter the cost. But the murderer will stop at nothing to get to his intended prey, and the strong arm of the law–and the shelter of her new love–may not be enough to save her.
Elsie’s Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
This was my first listen from author Karen Fenech, but it won’t be my last! I enjoyed this suspenseful romance.
Paige is a know it all, new FBI special agent. Anxious to prove her mettle she makes a critical mistake while tracking down the serial killer Todd Thames and destroys the case that the New York FBI division had been building against Thames.
Paige becomes a pariah among her colleagues and when she tells her boss that Thames threatened her when she testifies at his trial, she’s met with incredulity.
Paige’s self-esteem is shattered as she flees to a small town hoping to elude Thames and restart her flailing FBI career.
Her new boss Sam knows Paige is running from something, he’s just not sure whether it’s her past or something more!
I liked narrator Christina Traister, but I wasn’t particularly fond of the stoic, low-key voice she gave Sam, I mean he sounded like he was never ruffled by anything! All the other characters she voiced though I loved!
