Imagine living in fear everyday with someone watching your every move hoping to catch you off guard and make you his unwilling prey. A man who followed her even when she married stalked author Sarah Vail. Finding her when moving to a new location and smart enough to protect her safety, not until he died in a mental institution did she feel safe. Within this bone-chilling novel you will meet a serial killer so elusive so deranged and yet so brilliant you won’t realize he’s hiding in plain sight. A killer whose voice you will hear, image that will haunt you as he takes each victim who falls for his lines looks and moves into his own private lair and asks: would you like some wine? It would be the last taste or drop of anything they would remember, as their works would grow dark and then silenced forever. Blindsided by this man his real prey is Daniela St. Clair a stunning philanthropist and wealthy woman whose peaked his interest and who he has managed without her knowledge infiltrated her private domain: James street. Tim McAndrews is the deputy district attorney whose mind can’t seem to stop fixating on Dani. Making sure to meet her and not taking no for an answer he lets his intentions be known and you wonder why she is not a little leery. He’s overpowering at times too. Two young women have died in the same way. Tim is now the lead as Kathy who is with the Medical examiners office and Scott a Seattle detective come to Tim front and center demanding he take the case before more bodies are in the morgue. Who placed the toxic mix or potion in the wine? Antidepressants and alcohol don’t mix but these young and susceptible young women never had a chance. Lessons should be evident, as young people need to be careful when accepting a drink at a bar or at an unknown man’s home that you just met. Tim seems so taken with Dani at times he loses track of his time in finding the poison killer as he introduces her to Scott and Kathy whose reaction to her is startling. She fits the profile of the victims. Could Tim be the killer? Things spiral out of control with another body but the physical abuse is new but the tox report is the same. A profiler arrives and his assessment is that the killer thinks he’s above the law and hates women. He loves killing and Amber Brown, Jillian Garner and Christine Murdock had good jobs well off and beautiful. He’s good looking and sociable and might be someone they know works at the hospital and wants the victims money. Feels he’s entitled to it. Insane deranged organized. Jealous of Tim and focused on Dani but will they realize it? Katrina Collins is Dani’s friend and introduced her to bill Fraser and she seems desperate to get married.
