Overview

Sapphire Dubois is keeping a deadly secret.

"Mia Thompson's Stalking Sapphire is packed with thrills and chills, carnage and couture. Serial killer hunter Sapphire Dubois is like a 'Dexter' of the debutante set... An intriguing character in a unique story by an exciting new voice, it will keep your pulse racing to the very last page!"
—Francine LaSala, author of The Girl, the Gold Tooth & Everything

While the young and obscenely wealthy of Beverly Hills spend their nights with trendy celebs and drugs at the hottest clubs, 22-year-old Sapphire Dubois has a different hobby: she hunts serial killers. Luring, trapping, and anonymously handing over So-Cal's most wanted to the police is a better high than any drug.

But Sapphire's secret may not be so safe, as one of the very people she hunts is watching her every move. Aware of her true identity and her unconventional activities, he's determined to put an end to Sapphire once and for all. Paired up with her involuntary crush Detective Aston Ridder for her own protection, Sapphire now has to rethink her strategy not only to keep Aston in the dark, but to figure out how to capture a killer who already knows she’s coming.

“[Sapphire Dubois] kicks butt and takes names. You wouldn't expect that from a spoiled, rich girl… I loved this book.” —Ionia Martin

Meet the Author

Born in Sweden, Mia Thompson’s small but steadfast world changed when her 3rd grade teacher told her to give her a call when Mia published her first novel. Diverting from that plan, Mia graduated with a degree in Media/Motion Picture and soon set sail for Los Angeles, where she attended the New York Film Academy; graduating a few notches wiser than she came in. After holding several unfulfilling jobs — some of them morally sound, some of them debatable — Mia’s first novel STALKING SAPPHIRE was grabbed for publishing in 2012 after which she realized she owed a certain teacher a phone call.

    Sapphire is a young woman that kicks butt and takes names... or in her case, takes down LA's baddest serial killers!
    This book has suspense, twists, and even romance. Mia Thompson does an excellent job with pace and storytelling.
    She guides us through a continually evolving killer, a kidnapped victim running out of time, and aa desperate hero.
    Mia Thompson has hooked me as both a reader and a fan, I can't wait for the sequel.

    A thriller that takes place among the cream of Beverly Hills wit

    A thriller that takes place among the cream of Beverly Hills with characters so unpalatable that the reader falls under their spell.

    Thus, Sapphire is a modern day heroine, who plays the superficial and brainless bimbo by day and who hunting serial killers by night. 
    Her double play isolate her as much as her lies make her cold, distant. Her complicated past with her family renders her emotionally unfit to trust and open up to others. 
    Yet, she is a stubborn and intelligent fighter working behind the scenes to lock up the crazies.

    To feel normal, she hangs around a self-centered best friend, very snobbish who's not always nice and a unfaithful boyfriend for who her status are "not rich enough". Acquaitances knowing nothing about her true self but who help to refine her persona.

    The arrival of a detective, put in a closet after an injury, will complicate her life. With the grumpy, surly and stubborn Aston, Sapphire will have to be inventive to continue hunting serial killers. Moreover now that she is targeted herself by one who sent her macabre gifts.

    Sapphire, intrigue as much as she bother. 
    On the one hand, she takes care of the people she loves while holding them at a distance. On the other, she is an avenger without costume, who is chasing serial killer openly. 
    Almost as if she is looking for troubles. And when the problems are showing up, she continues to taunt them. She accepts that people think the worst of her without bothering to defend herself.

    Her lack of emotion are hiding a great sensitivity. She is an interesting character even if, the reader may find difficult to bond with her. Ditto for Aston, which despite his goujateries turns out to be a good man.


    Despite the case being solved, the mysteries are far from being elucidated. I look forward to discover more about Sapphire ...

    Gripping Story From Beginning Til End

    Book had my attention from the first page, and kept till even after the stalker was revealed. Book leaves it open for another, only 198 pages which isn't normally enough but this is so action packed it works. Only complaint is that the conversations aren't always cleared seperated from memories

    Nothing good to say.

    Sounded like an interesting story/character, but it wasn't.

    Most stupid book reaf

    I have not even finished this stupid book. It has no story line. The main person Sapphire is unbeliveable and stupid. It is not worth reading. I am close to duming this and not wasting my time hoping that something interesting might happen. Mll
