Detective Hank Reynolds has just been handed the case of a lifetime. Another reality TV star has gone missing, and it’s up to the Atlanta police department to find her before it’s too late. While he’s digging around, he discovers there have been nearly twenty similar kidnappings in the surrounding areas over the last twenty years, and while trying to find out more—and a witness that’s still alive—he’s dragged into a past he wishes he could erase. His dreams become nightmares about the women, and his sanity unravels. Even his eyes begin to play tricks on him, but no hallucinations are as devious as the antics of the killer—who’s always one breath away—waiting for the chance to strike again.
About the Author
Jo Michaels loves writing novels that make readers gasp in horror, surprise, and disbelief. While her browser search history has probably landed her on a list somewhere, she still dives into every plot with gusto, hoping "the man" will realize she's a writer and not a psychopath about to go on a rampage. Her favorite pastimes are reading, watching Investigation Discovery, and helping other authors realize their true potential through mentoring. She's penned the award-winning Pen Pals and Serial Killers series and the best-selling educational book for children, Writing Prompts for Kids, which has rocketed the kids that use it into several awards of their own. Most of Jo's books feature the places she's lived: Louisiana, Tennessee, and Georgia. That's given her a special amount of insight to what makes those locations tick. Her works are immersive and twisty, and she wouldn't want it any other way.

I am a big fan of Jo Michaels Pen Pals and Serial Killers series. So when book 3 came out I had to read it like asap. So I will start off saying that yes these are standalones and can be read in whatever order you please. I would totally recommend reading them all in order ;) just my two cents. This book was more crazy than I originally anticipated! I was pulled right into this book from the start and it did not let me go till the very end. If I am going to be honest in this review I was a little confused in the beginning and then at some point the light comes on. I really liked Claude. Hes a twisted individual. This series takes you on a helluva wild ride! Tobias to Dr Ward to Claude. I wonder what will be next.... I am game for whatever crazy Jo dishes out. I think I am gonna totally need paperbacks of this series. "Claude imagines bludgeoning the man to death with a bat, his brains eventually being coaxed out of his skull, oozing over the tile, making a pretty painting. It was a relaxing image."
