In death, they are purified. Holding his victims under water, he washes away their sins as they struggle for their last breath. Then he stakes their bodies to the ground, exposing them for what they really are: witches, sent to tempt and to corrupt.
No one knows about defence attorney Charlotte Wellington's murdered sister, or about her childhood spent with the carnival that's just arrived in town. For Charlotte, what's past is past. But others don't agree. And as a madman's body count rises, she and Detective Daniel Rokov are drawn into a mission that's become terrifyingly personal.
"[A] well-paced thriller with a gloss of romance." (Publishers Weekly)

If you like Karen Rose, this book is for you!!
Hmmm...I don't know, I love to read, just don't have as much time lately.
But it's excellent!
Sooner...she's so strong and smart for an 18 yr old...she's had to grow up so fast.
Daniel...even though it was a woman performing, she did an amazing job conveying his character, his thoughts and concerns. Sometimes a narrators voices will make me miss the emotion because they don't do men well. This was great!
Yes! When Charlotte admits her past to Daniel, and she expects to him hate her, or at the very least be disgusted. And he's not ~ he feels for the child she once was.
Just that this is my first Mary Burton book, and I loved it ~ I'm looking forward to more!
I wish there were more in Audio...and the partners book should be coming out next. I'll be getting that one for sure!
