For years, Brenda Banks was haunted by nightmares hinting at the true identity of her birth mother. That hunger for the truth inspired her to become a reporter, and Brenda refuses to back down when a serial killer targeting Slaughter Creek chooses her to publicize the gruesome crimes. It's a twisted game, one she's certain to lose without the help of FBI Special Agent Nick Blackwood, the man she's loved since high school - and whose tormented past holds the key to catching a killer.
Narrowly surviving childhood with a sadistic father, Nick Blackwood has devoted his life to chasing down criminals, but he's never forgotten the small-town beauty he once loved. But when a murder investigation brings him face-to-face with Brenda Banks, Nick cannot ignore the smoldering fire she rekindles in his troubled soul. Allowing Brenda into his heart means letting down his guard - and that's just what the killer is counting on…

This was pretty dark but I loved it. I loved Nick and Brenda and it was nice seeing Jake again. Ms. Herron made Arthur Blackwood sooo easy to absolutely hate. He truly was a monster. What he did to Nick and Seven was unbelivable. This was truly a page turner.
I did feel sorry for Seven but she was just crazy.
This had some really brutal sex in it but it also had some romantic sex. Seven had the brutal, Nick and Brenda had the romantic.
So, I'm off to read the next book, Worth Dying For.
As to the narrator: Fabulous! Ms. Eby is just great with her male and female voices. And her villains sounded evil without sounding silly.
I got this book and audio free with my KindleUnlimited.
