|Terror stalks a small Virginia town.|
FBI rising star, criminal profiler Evelyn Baine, knows how to think like a serial killer. But she's never chased anyone like the Bakersville Burier, who hunts young women and displays them, half-buried, deep in the woods. As the body count climbs, Evelyn's relentless pursuit of the killer puts her career - and her life - at risk. And the evil lurking in the Burier's mind may be more than even she can unravel.
Terror is closer than she thinks.
The Bakersville Burier knows he's got an FBI profiler on his trail. He knows who she is and where to find her. And he's biding his time, because he's planned a special punishment for Evelyn. She may have tracked other killers, but he vows to make this her last chase. This time it's her turn to be hunted!
I was immediately drawn into this story of a determined FBI Profiler as she hunts down a Serial Killer while trying to ignore her attraction to fellow FBI co-worker Kyle McKenzie. Elizabeth Heiter crafted a character that is both strong and sensitive. I enjoy that Evelyn is determined to be the best Criminal profiler in the world due to a tragedy that happened in her childhood. Will Evelyn realize that she does not have to be alone and learn that is okay to lean on Kyle?
The story line is fluid and kept me fully involved. It is a different type of romantic thriller in that Evelyn is not only working the case but she is also will become a victim. The story is about how Evelyn gets in the mind of a killer that is determined to keep killing no matter what. The characters are fully developed and I was able to visualize their individual traits. I could almost feel them as the story unfolded.
What a fantastic FBI romantic thriller from debut author Elizabeth Heiter. I loved this book- the pace, the characters, the plot, the twists, the action, the tension was all on point. I highly recommend that you buy this,you will not be disappointed.
