NOMINEE: International Thriller Writers' Thriller Award: Best E Book Original
From Thriller Award-winning author Alexandra Sokoloff and Audie Award-winning narrator R.C. Bray (The Martian):
Special Agent Roarke thought he knew what evil was.
He was wrong.
FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is closing in on a bust of a major criminal organization in San Francisco when he witnesses an undercover member of his team killed right in front of him on a busy street, an accident Roarke can't believe is coincidental. His suspicions put him on the trail of a mysterious young woman who appears to have been present at each scene of a years-long string of accidents and murders, and who may well be that most rare of killers: a female serial.
Roarke's hunt for her takes him across three states...while in a small coastal town, a young father and his five-year-old son, both wounded from a recent divorce, encounter a lost and compelling young woman on the beach and strike up an unlikely friendship without realizing how deadly she may be.
As Roarke uncovers the shocking truth of her background, he realizes she is on a mission of her own, and he must race to capture her before more blood is shed.
"This interstate manhunt has plenty of thrills.... Sokoloff keeps the drama taut and the pages flying."

Excellent FBI Crime/Serial Killer Novel
I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys a well written and intelligent crime novel.
5 stars from me...and I can't wait for the next installment!
I liked that the author obviously did her research about serial killers and wrote not only a gripping book that kept me listening long into the night, but also a book that was accurately reflects this crime genre. All of the main characters were well developed and complex and I happy the author didn't make the killer all bad, instead I found myself conflicted, while I was anxious about what would happen next, I also found myself feeling compassion.
The book is written from the alternate points of view of the FBI agent and the woman he is chasing, which adds the extra element of being able to see the story from both sides which made it even more compelling reading.
The narration by R.C, Bray was excellent, his voice is very easy to listen to and it gives the book a little bit of that 'old fashioned' crime/mystery novel feel but in a modern way.
In short, a great story that will keep you enthralled the whole way through.

Outstanding in Every Way
This was so good I purchased the sequel right away. The characters, the premise, the plot, the mystery.
Since Red Dragon, there have only been a few stories where the FBI is presented as the professsional, top cop organization it truly is. In the Huntress series, the focus is on one particular unit in the San Francisco office. They work as a team, despite internal disagreements. They are smart, resorceful, respectful and diligent.
RC Bray does a great job with the voices. His tone has a nstural hard, masculine edge, yet his treatment of the various female characters is just as believable.
This is a great book at a great price.
