Synopses & Reviews
April Smith electrified readers with her debut thriller, North of Montana
, and introduced a new kind of cop in gutsy, complex, maverick FBI agent, Ana Grey. Now, Ana is back in a riveting story of obsession, violence, and the fine line between cop and criminal...
Something within Ana snaps after she rescues a fifteen-year-old girl from a sadistic sexual predator and realizes that following her brutal ordeal, the victim will never be the same. It's suddenly all too clear that the slow-turning wheels of law enforcement and big-city police politics are no match for a killer poised to strike. Only a force of equal cunning, speed, and disregard for the rules has any hope of stopping him. That force is Ana, and she will put everything on the line both personal and professional to see that justice...and revenge...are satisfied.
