A Thriller Award nominee for Best eBook Original Novel

Book 1 in award-winning author Alexandra Sokoloff's riveting new Huntress FBI series about a driven FBI agent on the hunt for that most rare of all killers: a female serial

FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is closing in on a bust of a major criminal organization in San Francisco when he witnesses an undercover member of his team killed right in front of him on a busy street, an accident Roarke can’t believe is coincidental. His suspicions put him on the trail of a mysterious young woman who appears to have been present at each scene of a years-long string of “accidents” and murders, and who may well be that most rare of killers: a female serial.

Roarke’s hunt for her takes him across three states…while in a small coastal town, a young father and his five-year old son, both wounded from a recent divorce, encounter a lost and compelling young woman on the beach and strike up an unlikely friendship without realizing how deadly she may be.

As Roarke uncovers the shocking truth of her background, he realizes she is on a mission of her own, and must race to capture her before more blood is shed.

    As usual Alex delivers again!

    Ms. Sokoloff is edgy enough to turn us on our ear. Love the idea of a female serial killer! I can't wait to see where this series will lead us. Great title & suspense.

    4 Stars! What a page turner this book turned out to be! Anyone

    4 Stars!

    What a page turner this book turned out to be! Anyone who has followed my reviews has probably noticed that I have a very eclectic taste when it comes to what I read. I find that by mixing things up I am able to fully appreciate each genre. I was in the mood for a serious mystery and a couple of my friends really enjoyed this one so I decided to give it a chance. I am so glad that I took a chance on this novel.

    This mystery relied heavily on profiling which I find incredibly interesting. Special Agent Roarke sees his undercover agent die just as they were about to meet. He notices a woman right before everything happens and he has a feeling that she is in some way involved. Agent Roarke was a part of the Behavior Analysis Unit before changing departments. He finds that a woman with a similar description is listed as a person of interest in at least two other crimes and he starts to try to pull everything together.

    This story came together piece by piece with information being shared in exactly the right amount. As I found answers to questions that I had, I found that I had more questions. The plot is very detailed and the pacing of the story really makes it hard to step away from this story. I found myself guessing all the way until the very end of the story which is exactly what I want when I pick up a mystery.

    I found the characters to be very likeable. Believe it or not, I actually ended up liking the villain before the story was over. I loved that the story was able to show the villain as a three dimensional character complete with reasons why she has done the things that she has done. I liked Agents Roarke and Epps and really appreciated how they were able to work together so easily.

    I highly recommend this book to mystery fans who like a psychological aspect to the story. This is the first book by Alexandra Sokoloff that I have read but I look forward to continuing this series very soon.

    I received a copy of this book from Amazon Publishing - Thomas & Mercer via NetGalley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

    I listen to this on audio:

    The author grabs you from the first page until the end. I have never read a book where I was torn between who to cheer for the killer or the police. The author tells a compelling story of so much pain, a whole family lost, she takes you on a journey and paints a picture of crimes that will stay in your mind for years to come. The narrator was outstanding, amazing you will hear his many voices for years to come as he gives you chills of the hunt.

    Ms. Sokoloff touches on some very serious issues of crime that most do not like to think about much less hear. She writes in a style that holds your attention why you hold your breath to see where she leads you. She gives us wonderful characters, explain each issue in a compelling tale why not giving to much away. She keeps the thrill and excitement in each word as her scenes hold you on the edge as you paint the pictures in your minds of chilling scenes where you can see the blood and almost smell it. I had more than one chill go down my spine as I listened to this audio.The author writes from the alternate points of view from the FBI agent and the woman he is chasing, being able to see the story from both sides which made an outstanding read.

    The author gives you wonderful characters that you can relate you, characters you feel compassion for as you feel their pain. Even when you think oh that is bad you grow to love them as they take on a part of your soul. There is no way you can read this story and not have it touch you in someway. You will love each character from the little boy who will steal your heart all the way up to the FBI agents.

    R.C. Bray narration is wonderful he brings so much in his many different voice they are by far one of the best I have listen to. Some of the scene he had chills going down my back as he held me on the edge not being able to put the book down. His voice is easy to listen to he bring the characters out in their rough ways that makes it a wonderful audio. Even his female characters where outstanding you forget you are listening to a man as he takes you on a ride that leaves you breathless.

    This is a book I had a hard time putting down. Few books reach in an grab my heart keeping a piece of my soul as this one did. The author knows how to write a compelling story that will stay with you. I highly recommend you pick up the book or audio it is different from any other I have read. You won't be disappointed and I feel sure you will be hooked. This is a wonderful beginning to what looks to be an outstanding series. I can't wait to read more by this author.

    an outstanding mystery, with plenty of suspense and very hard to put down. I read it in two settings. The characters Epps, Roarke and Cara were excellent in their description and roles within the story. I read all types of mysteries with suspense & intrigue. This is in the top five.

    A very unique plot. That is the main thing that pulled me in to this one.
    I really enjoyed the backstory of Cara's character. The whole timeline of events in her life and how things are tied to the moon phases is very well done.
    The juxtaposition and interaction between Cara and Roarke (the FBI agent) is also quite clever.
    For the most part, I found this an enjoyable read and an excellent page turner.
    However, near the climax of this first installment is where the wheels fell off. The actions and abilities of both main characters became almost superhuman which was outside of the realm where they had acted through the rest of the book.
    What at first seemed a plausible thriller soon became more of an action/adventure story. This still made for an interesting read but not up to the caliber of the first part of the book.

    Don't like to be cheated

    This an interesting story, well written, although in some places Sokoloff is too much to to "winds," to the "rain," to the "see" and other powers of nature.
    Problem is that it left me cheated from the money. Too many unanswered questions, unexplained "coincidences." At the end it leaves you in total limbo. It is clearly commercialism making you for the next installment of the heroin.
    Books like that and to more obvious "to be continued" make me stop reading from the author, and rating the work one star, automatically.

    A good, fast read.

    This book is just like the Hannibal Lecter books except this time the serial killer is a woman and the FBI agent is a man. The story was good overall but some parts were just too hokey like when she meets the boy and his father and they all become great friends and she has dinner with thrm that night and moved in with them by the third day. That just wouldn't happen in real life no matter how desperate and horny the guy is. He wouldn't bring a complete stranger into his house with a small child living with him. Talk about irresponsible.

    Just like Clarice fell in love with Hannibal you can tell that is what is happening in this story with the FBI agent. That's why he felt jealous towards the guy who moved her into his house.

    The action was unpredictable and good. It was a real page turner but you can totally see where the relationship between the serial killer and the FBI agent is going. Sadly, it feels like the author stole the Hannibal books and decided to reverse the male and female roles.
