Tormented detective Jake Roberts just killed a suspect in a firefight. Behind the ski mask was a sixteen-year-old girl. Cop-shop policy requires a visit to the precinct shrink after a shooting. Leaving the session in anger, Jake passes a beautiful woman entering the doctor's office. Later that night, Dr. Thaddeus Abrams is found murdered. The kill is the work of a prolific serial killer and FBI profiler Mika Scott is obsessed with capturing the killer. She arrives to lead the investigation at the Atlanta PD where she was once Detective Jake Roberts' partner and lover. Jake is sent to question the doctor's clients and he comes face-to-face with the beautiful woman he passed in the office earlier, a flight attendant named Lori Powers. Jake and Lori fall into a steamy love affair. Working with Mika, tensions are running high when Jake discovers who the killer is and the once cold trail is on fire. Will they get there in time to stop another murder? The killer is within a fingertips reach.

What a novel , a hard hitting story which touches on the dark side of everyone from the serial killer to the police who are investigating the crimes. Although you know who the killer is from the outset, the real gripping thing is the reason why and as these reasons are revealed it draws the reader in.  On the other side we have the police detective who is fighting his demons and will stop at nothing to find the killer and as their paths cross fireworks explode.  The exceptionally thing about this novel is the emotive and human touch that is given to the main characters. If you like hard hitting gritty novels that portray the true side of investigations with no hold bars this is the writer for you.   A real page turner with a very good psychology edge to it. This book kept me enrapt from page one to the end and the only disappointing factor was that it was over too quickly. The first of 3 novels featuring the same detective and on the basis of this one the author has created a detective to rival Morse, Rebus and Frost.

Detective Jake Roberts is having a really tough time. He's been shot and he shot and killed a young woman.  Handling this hasn't been easy, but he's trying.  While he's dealing with his issues, there is a killer working overtime.  This killer has crossed federal lines and so the FBI is involved.  Jake knew it meant Mika Scott would be in town.         They nickname the killer the "Who's Your Daddy Killer".  Controlling men of authority seem to be dying way to often.  Mika Scott and Jake Roberts, along with Jake's department,are working the case to stop the killings.  Question is, will they stop the killer before they strike again?      This is a chilling, page turning thriller! Extremely well written and characters so relatable you'll be sure they live in your neighborhood.  I absolutely LOVE this book.  I'm not usually impressed with thriller/mystery type books, but this one is a must read.  I could feel my skin crawling as each murder took place. I was unsettled by how easily the killer got away. It's simply an amazing read.  You'll enjoy the side stories as much as the main one. You need to put this one at the top of your TBR pile.      I found no issues with this one.      I gave this one 5 cheers out of  5 because it really is that good.  ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~
