The moment detective Reed Novak steps onto the crime scene, he knows the case is going to rock his world. A beautiful young woman murdered at home. No sign of forced entry. No motive. She’s obviously not the killer’s first victim, and Reed’s instincts tell him she won’t be his last. Reed’s first clue comes via a mysterious text that links to a dating profile, but even more intriguing than the clue is the person who sent it.
As a white-hat hacker in the Delphi Center’s cyber investigation unit, Laney Knox sneaks into some of the deepest, darkest corners of the Internet looking for predators. Laney would prefer to stay away from Austin PD’s most recent murder case, but she can’t ignore the chilling similarities between that crime and her own brutal attack years ago. Laney offers to help the sexy lead detective, but he wants more from her than just a promising tip—Reed wants her trust. Laney resists, but as their relationship deepens she’s tempted to reveal the closely guarded secrets that could make her a key witness…or the killer’s next victim.
I like this series. Every book that I have read I have enjoyed. Which this book is no exception, except, that I did feel like this book was more heavy on the romance then the crime. Yet, I was ok with this as I was feeling the romance between Reed and Laney. The way that they interacted with each other I did not notice the age difference between them. At the same time they worked well together and they were smart about the case and putting it together. Just like the other books, this one was a quick read. The pacing of the story was steady with no down time and a good ending.
