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.

    Honestly, this is the best book i have read in a long time. I could not put it down. I hope there will be a sequel. I would like to know what happened to Cara.

    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.
