    A reviewer

    A winner! That little touch of horror added to a complex mystery makes for an exciting and tension-filled read. When you pick up this book, make sure you have locked all your doors and the lights are on. You'll need that extra feeling of security when the building creaks unexpectedly and you might even hear hollow footsteps on the stairs. Detective Bobby Beckett and her partner Dan Goodson become involved in another series of unpleasant murders that hint of a possible serial killer, even though one of the victims is a man. Their problems are multiplied when they find differences in each murder and no apparent motive. Journalist August Summers rides with the two-detectives as they follow up leads. While they are busy doing their job, August makes use of the time to search for evidence on her own. An attempt to kill them nearly disrupts the investigation. Is it related? The cast of characters will keep you guessing at what will happen next. Edge-of-the-seat reading. Highly recommended to keep your attention to the end. You'll be looking for the next book in this series by very talented Dana Reed. Enjoy. I certainly did.

    Just as Gripping as the First!

    This second novel in the Bobby Beckett/August Summer series is just as good as the first. I haven't been this riveted by a book in some time. You won't believe how it ends! Make sure you add this book to your reading list this summer!

    Police Action Thriller

    Ms. Reed has done the seemingly impossible job of following her UNHOLY ALLINACE with an even more tense and exciting novel whose plot twists and double danger will keep the reader glued to the pages until the final sentence. She has grown and developed her characters and their relationships in a most satisfying manner. The quality of the writing is excellent. I look forward to seeing more of this series and certainly a lot more of Ms. Reed's work whether in the series or beyond it.
