Publisher's Summary

At the grisly murder scene of a teen prostitute, Virginia state trooper Riley Tatum's past roars back to haunt her. When she was a teenage runaway, she was kidnapped, drugged, and left unconscious on the streets. She has no memories of what happened, only strange recurring dreams of two men playing cards.
Former FBI agent Clay Bowman, Riley's old flame, is Shield Security's newest member. He's plagued by the unsolved case of a serial killer nicknamed the Shark who murdered girls as part of a sadistic poker game. Only one girl survived. With the Shark now bent on evening that score, Clay has a chilling suspicion: Riley is the girl who escaped the Shark's deadly amusement - and she is his next prey.
As the Shark gets ready to play his hand, can Riley and Clay stop him - or will this killer finally claim the one who got away?

Amazing book under $8.00

Trooper Riley Tatum was once a teenage runaway who was lucky enough to have survived the streets. Twelve years later, she's the first responder at a crime scene where she discovers the body of a young prostitute who looks much like herself at that age. As another connection between herself and the victim comes to light, she realizes there's a madman out there who gets his thrills by betting on the lives of runaway teens... Clay Bowman is a former FBI agent who once worked the case in New Orleans. He now works for a prestigious private security firm and is assigned to assist Riley in the investigation, as well as provide her protection. However, Riley and Bowman have a short history and she wants nothing to do with him. But as 'The Shark' sets up for a rematch with no intention of losing, Clay may be her only chance of walking out of the the poker game with her life.

This was another well written and suspenseful story by Ms. Burton that I thoroughly enjoyed. It was fast paced, flowed well, and held my undivided attention the entire time I spent reading it. I liked Riley and Bowman who were both unique and complex characters. Their personal relationship wasn't developed enough in my opinion though, since Bowman seemed to truly love and never quite get over the death of his wife. As a romance it left much to be desired, but as a mystery it was a highly intriguing and compelling read. There were plenty of twists along the way and although The Shark wasn't who I was expecting, his opponent didn't come as a huge surprise. Still, I found this to be a gripping story and am very much looking forward to Agent Sharp's book next. I also really hope to learn more about Shield Security and what motivates its mysterious and powerful owner.

Christina Traister was outstanding with the delivery of the story

Keeps you entertained

Story line is predictive although keeps you interested the entire time . The reading of the male voices can sound a bit overdone
