Peaceful life in a small Georgia county is shattered when women’s bodies begin turning up on the side of the highway; the women raped and then strangled to death. At first Detective Alex Gray does not realize these cases are related, but then Megan Crawford survives. Suspected of being an accomplice to a string of rapes in the past, Megan falls under suspicion again. Is she the key to solving this case, or is she part of the deception? With no evidence and no leads Alex must try everything he can to stop this killing spree, even if it means involving the one person who may be hiding secrets of her own.
A riveting read. This novel had me engrossed all day. I couldn't put it down.
The romantic element takes second stage to the suspense and mystery and I thought this was the correct tone to take due to the subject matter and it leant credibility to the relationship between Megan and Alex.
Both of the protagonists have pasts that could come back to haunt them and so the door is wide open for subsequent titles in the series.
I'll definitely be adding the rest of the series to my TBR list.
