It's been seven years since the Seattle Strangler terrorized the city. His victims were all young, pretty, their lifeless bodies found wrapped in a home-sewn white dress. But there was one who miraculously escaped death, just before the Strangler disappeared.
Lara Church has only hazy memories of her long-ago attack. What she does have is a home in Austin, a job, and a chance at a normal life at last. Then Texas Ranger James Beck arrives on her doorstep with shattering news: The Strangler is back. And this time, he's in Austin.
He's always craved her, even as he killed the others. For so long he's been waiting to unleash the beast within. And this time, he'll prove he holds her life in his hands - right before he ends it forever....
"Best-seller Burton (Before She Dies) delivers action-packed tension as a cold case becomes new again...a compelling romantic thriller." (Publishers Weekly)

Needed a stronger heroine
Just ok for me.. Narrator was not good..
I bought this book along with the audio version so I could listen as I read along. It was listed on audible.com as a mystery/suspense/romance.
Believe me when I tell you there was no romance. They went through the whole book and never kissed, no thoughts of desire, nothing. Until 85% when they kissed and made love and that was it. Not another kiss afterwards. It was very disappointing. You could take out the sex scene and a few swear words and it would be a christian novel. The story was ok and it was a little surprising near the end but it was not very mysterious or suspenseful.
As to the narrator? She was not very good. She really doesn't know how to deepen her voice to sound manly. Or she just doesn't care. Sorry, but I would not read another book by this author or listen to this narrator.
