It was a relief to wear tennis shoes rather than the leather half boots she often wore to work, but the soles made little squeaking noises on the hardwood floors as she headed for the kitchen. Yet another cheery sound that felt like an irritation. A preprogrammed coffeepot had hot coffee waiting. She filled a to-go cup with the hazelnutflavored brew, grabbed her purse and car keys, and headed out the door. Next stop was the flower shop. The owner was just opening up, and her stomach rolled as she followed him inside. The smell reminded her of funerals. "Give me a couple of minutes to get my register up and running," the salesclerk said. "I want to look around, so take your time," Jo said. She knew what she needed, but it was going to take her a few minutes to work up the nerve to pick it out and pay without breaking into tears.

From the Publisher
New York Times bestselling author Sharon Sala enters the eye of the maelstrom as death and disaster stalk Tornado Alley—aided by an obsessive madman.
As bodies pile up in the wake of a storm—stripped, tortured and grimly posed—authorities must admit the unthinkable. The serial killer dubbed the Stormchaser has returned following a tornado and taken it upon himself to bring the death toll up to where he believes it belongs.
FBI investigator Wade Luckett is back on the case, assisted by an agent Wade knows professionally and personally: his ex-wife, Jo. Neither time nor the tragedy that tore them apart have blunted the ache Wade feels for brave, beautiful Jo. And though she tries to deny it, she feels the same. But the stirrings of renewed romance will have to wait until they catch a killer.
The Stormchaser has no intention of getting caught. He''s set his sights on a new victim. Jo can forget about the lifetime she dreams of spending with Wade. She''ll be lucky to see another day.
"[A] well-written, fast-paced ride."
