The string of mutilated bodies points to a madman, but the police are stymied. Trace evidence yields no DNA, animal or human. Male, female, young, old—the victims fall without a struggle to the killer in the shadows.

Overview

He hunts, silent and unseen.

The string of mutilated bodies points to a madman, but the police are stymied. Trace evidence yields no DNA, animal or human. Male, female, young, old—the victims fall without a struggle to the killer in the shadows.

His next victim has been chosen.

For a brief time, Suzanne Harper wielded supernatural abilities and super-human athletic prowess, but that was while she had been the lover of an angel. The murders point to her former lover, and the trail of bodies tells a terrifying tale: he’s working his way to her.

Prey becomes predator.

Icarus, an angel who hunts those of his kind who have fallen from grace, enlists Suzanne’s help to stop the killer, for only one as close as a lover can anticipate his next move. Now she must reconcile her heart’s longing for her lost love with her sense of justice and honor, and she must do it fast … because the next murder could be hers.

Meet the Author

Sharon Gerlach was in training to be a ninja, but a dismaying lack of physical grace and balance—not to mention the inability to keep her big mouth shut—ended her ninja career before it really began. Now she writes. She doesn’t write about ninjas because that’s obviously a sore subject. But she writes about other really cool things and figures someone else will cover the ninjas. Life’s really not all about ninjas, anyway. Sharon lives on the dry side of the Pacific Northwest with her husband (who must really be fond of her as he hasn’t left her yet despite her ninja failings); her three kids and two grandchildren (none of whom possess ninja qualities either); and four cats. Yes, you guessed it—ninja cats!

The characters had no depth and at no time did I connect with any of them. Then after awhile the book (short as it was) got repetitive. Still, new author, I gave it a chance. But it got worse when the author combined true religion (to some folks) with fictional characters. Don't get me wrong, I love paranormal romances and thrillers including demons and witches alike. But have yet to come across an author who defiles someones (anyones) faith dirctly ie: "I stood in the presence of God". please note the capital G. Or Christ - capital C. I'm an avid eclectic reader (about 200 books a year) preferring 500 pages or more and am always look for new authors. I will not read any more from this author; thank you

This was a very well written tale with good characters and story. Normally I am not a fan of "angel" tales but this one was well worth the read.

Suzanne's life was turned upside down. She breaks away from her love, Ian, after an angel drops into her life. Then there are murders of people she knows all while another angel appears and takes off with her. This story takes you on a journey to search for the truth of what is happening so she can get her life back. Good read.

This book starts out grabbing your attention and keeps going. The murders surrounding Suzanne mixed with the angels is a unique read.
