Things haven't been easy for Emily West. She's just moved out of her mother's home, and out from under her thumb, to a new city across the country. Sure, she loves her family, but it was definitely better when they loved each other from a distance. For the first time in her life she's all alone, but she’s also happy.
Special Agent Reece Knight’s latest case has him completely stumped. He's been an FBI agent for four years, but he'd never had one like this. There are no leads and no witnesses. At least, none that have ever survived. Someone out there is killing women in his town, and Reece is going to bring him down.
Then, Emily's peaceful night is interrupted in a way that scares her half to death and shakes the foundations of her entire world. This isn't something she can go to the police about, but if she doesn't do something she'll be left to face a killer alone.
In desperation, she reaches out to an old friend, Hannah Mitchell and her US Marshal boyfriend Luke. What she tells them sounds familiar to Luke, too familiar. His buddy Reece has been chasing a killer with the same M.O. for months. No one knows just how he manages to lure and kill his victims in major cities without being seen, and now Emily might just be the only person to ever escape with her life. A life she might not have for long if Reece can’t protect her from a serial killer, a man that’s tasted her fear once and doesn’t intend to fail again.
