Once, Special Agent Smoky Barrett hunted serial killers for the FBI. She was one of the best–until a madman terrorized her family, killed her husband and daughter, and left her face scarred and her soul brutalized. Turning the tables on the killer, Smoky shot him dead–but her life was shattered forever.

Now Smoky dreams about picking up her weapon again. She dreams about placing the cold steel between her lips and pulling the trigger one last time. Because for a woman who’s lost everything, what is there left to lose?

She’s about to find out.

In all her years at the Bureau, Smoky has never encountered anyone like him–a new and fascinating kind of monster, a twisted genius who defies profilers’ attempts to understand him. And he’s issued Smoky a direct challenge, coaxing her back from the brink with the only thing that could convince her to live.

The killer videotaped his latest crime–an act of horror that left a child motherless–then sent a message addressed to Agent Smoky Barrett. The message is enough to shock Smoky back to work, back to her FBI team. And that child awakens something in Smoky she thought was gone forever.

Suddenly the stakes are raised. The game has changed. For as this deranged monster embarks on an unspeakable spree of perversion and murder, Smoky is coming alive again–and she’s about to face her greatest fears as a cop, a woman, a mother…and a merciless killer’s next victim.

From the Hardcover edition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suprisingly Wonderful! It takes a lot for a book of this genre to interest me and this series definutely fits the bill on that account. Its smart and well written and the lead protagonist is a real human being: as dark and troubled as the crimnals and victims she deals with on a daily bases. This is a great read that will keep you interested.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Read! This is a fabulous book. From the gritty yet somehow vulnerable main character and all the others that the author builds up and endears to the reader, to the twisted humour of the's a page turner you're sure to have trouble putting down. Enjoy the ride!
