Eden carefully develops each character giving the reader and in depth personal look at how these characters feel, interact, and struggle to overcome the past even as that past resurfaces. This book was an extremely enjoyable read and I can’t wait for the next in the series to find out where Cynthia Eden is going to take us next. Ms. Eden’s world building talents continue to evolve and improve with each book.

Sheltered in the shadows of the Smoky Mountains is the suspect who’s summoned FBI agent Macey Night’s fears to the surface. Every day that the “Profiler,” a vigilante serial killer, escapes justice is another day she’s reminded of what it is to be a ruthless predator’s prey.

Working together—needing, living and breathing each other—they’re entwined to distraction.
