This was a gritty and entertaining first book in a new series. FBI agent Hatcher McGee is upset to find he's being paired with a rookie agent names Korine Davenport. While an unlikely match, the two have something in common. They both have secrets and demons from their pasts. The case finds them tracking a vigilante and trying to stop him before the body count gets too high.
I initially started and stopped this. I couldn't get into the story. On my second attempt it started slowly for me again but did pick up and I was able to finish and enjoy the story. I thought both of the MC's were interesting and I'm curious to see where the author is going to take them.
The plot was gritty and there is a good portion of the book that deals with child molestation so be aware of that going in.
Overall I enjoyed this and I will definitely be checking out the next book in the series.
The predators become prey in a breathless novel of revenge from a USA Today bestselling author.
Still haunted by his wife’s murder—and stained by the blood of avenging it—FBI special agent Hatcher McGee can’t believe he’s being teamed up with rookie agent Korine Davenport. She is his most guilty secret—the one-night stand who almost cost him everything.
Korine has her own demons. As a child, she witnessed her father’s murder, and she’s spent her life waiting for the killer’s return. She and Hatcher are both looking for closure, but the disturbing case that draws them together could be their last.
When the mutilated body of a corrupt Savannah judge surfaces, Hatcher and Korine find themselves on the trail of a vigilante who is showing no mercy. Not for the predators who’ve gone free. And not for anyone who gets in the way.
As the body count rises, and as Hatcher’s and Korine’s own pasts unfold, they must risk their lives tracking a killer they’ve come to understand all too well. After all, the ends justify the means.
