The hunt for mass murderer Cara Lindstrom is over. FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke has been working for this moment: the capture of a killer who savagely hunts the worst of humanity. But Roarke remains traumatized by his own near-death at the hands of the serial killer who slaughtered Cara’s family…and haunted by the enigmatic woman who saved his life.
Then the sixteen-year-old prostitute who witnessed Cara’s most recent murder goes missing, and suddenly pimps are turning up dead on the streets of San Francisco, killed with an MO eerily similar to Cara’s handiwork.
Is a new killer on the loose with a mission even more deadly than hers? In the pulse-pounding third Huntress/FBI Thrillers book, Roarke will have to go on the hunt…and every woman he meets, even those closest to him, may prove deadly.

This is the third book in this series. You can read my reviews of the 1st book, Huntress Moon here and the 2nd in this series, Blood Moon, here. These books will make you want to read each additional book in the series--the third is no different. It is a roller coaster ride with twists and turns that will keep you guessing. But what happens in this book will really have you mesmerized. Just who is killing off all these despicable men? Is there a copycat killer--and who is it? You may just find yourself siding with the killers--and the police are having a hard time not siding with them as well. I now have to wait for the 4th book in this series--and you know I'm going to read it! I want to know what happens next--but I can't say anything cause that will give away the ending of thi book--and you know I'd never do that!!
Special Agent Matt Roarke finally has mas murder Cara behind bars. But, he is conflicted when other men end up brutally murdered while she is sitting in her cell. He is also haunted by his near death at the hands of the murderer who killed Cara’s family 25 years ago. Roarke feels connected to Cara because of that and can’t help but feel sorry for all she has been through.Just when I thought the story would wrap up, the author keeps the momentum going by not allowing the case to be solved. Roarke can’t let go, and I understand the mental struggle he goes through because he doesn’t believe it’s over. There are so many twists and turns within the story that just when I thought things were wrapping up, something else caused it not to. I am fascinated and intrigued by all of the layers in the story telling and the author’s ability to tell a story so complex and suspenseful. As my favorite of the series, this is a solid 5 star rating for me. *Copy provided for review
After reading Blood Moon, Book II, by Alexandra Sokoloff, there was no way I could stop. I kept on reading through Cold Moon and Bitter Moon. Now I see we have Hunger Moon, which would be Book V, and I will jump through hoops to get my hands on it. The moon talks to Cara. Does it talk to you? What does it say? We begin with Roarke’s nightmare, waking him. Cara… She faces her own terror in the night, but vows IT will never take her. “Fair as the moon and cold as ice.” Roark’s team functions like a well oiled machine, even when personalities occasionally clash and opinions differ. They always get their ‘man’. Cold Moon takes an even closer look into the depraved, the abused, the lost and those who care about them. Human trafficking of women and children, enslaved in prostitution, bought and sold, used and abused. Who will stand up for them, defend them, save them? How can an online presence affect people, politics, legalities, courts…The anonymity of cyber activism. I do not want to spoil any of the goodies contained in Cold Moon, the third book of Cara and Roarke’s story, so I will just throw out some hints and ask you…what would you do? Evil…can you see it, smell it, touch it, feel it? Is it alive? Do you do something about it yourself? Is it self defense, if you know evil is coming your way, and you take it out first? My emotions are raging in anger and disgust. I know this goes on, day in and day out, and I wonder if those who, in real life, try to stem the flow of evil feel it is too big, there are too many. One by one they WILL fall. “There is something larger at work…a force beyond the simply human. A female vengeance against outrages.” Santa Muerte “Sometimes death for one is salvation for another.” I love the dark and dangerous, unique and original, direction Alexandrar Sokoloff takes in this story. I am afraid to google some of the online forums she talks about. I am afraid of what I will find out. Will evil know I am looking and come for me? She continues to thrill and amaze me, disgust and frighten me, leaving me ALWAYS wanting more. I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Cold Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff.
