Scorpio obsessed, with a mind as strong as twisted steel, Henry Slater, suave, sophisticated, sexy, intelligent, and wealthy is the perfect man—except to women who tell him what he doesn’t want to hear.
Dr. John Trenton is called back to NYC for a case close to his heart, while NYPD Detective Samantha “Sam” Wright and forensic psychiatrist Doctor Frank Khaos, conflicted about their on-again-off-again relationship, take on another case—a serial killer who’s orchestrated sixteen murders across the United States over a nine-year period. The seventeenth victim is Sam’s best friend, Carrie Baines. When forensic science connects Frank to Slater, Frank is pushed to delve into his past, something he swore never to do. Meanwhile, due to the interstate nature of the crimes, the FBI gets involved, convincing Sam to go undercover. But Slater is clever, and Sam is no match for him. Will her psychic skills and police training be enough to survive this close encounter with a killer, or will she end up as his eighteenth victim? And even if she lives, is her relationship with Frank really over?

SCORPIO is 3rd in this series, following GEMINI and ARIES. This is a continuation, so the first books should be read first. Each of them have a small cliffhanger. SCORPIO makes some references to the other books that will whet your appetite to get them first. Detective Samantha (Sam) Wright and Forensic Psychiatrist Frank Khaos, in the midst of a personal relationship, are called to investigate another case. There is a serial killer who has, to date, killed 17 women ... the latest being Sam's best friend. It also becomes personal for Frank .... there is a link between him and the killer. As the connections become clearer, the suspense increases. It's a riveting chase to find the killer before he kills again .. and he already has his eyes on Samantha. The characters are well defined and bring credibility to the story line. There is a fine mix of professional and personal and the way they interact with each other. There are several changes of direction with a surprising ending. For those who may be sensitive ..... Bondage plays a large part of this story as part of character development. There are also explicit intimate scenes between various characters. Many thanks to the author for the advance digital copy. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
