Murder happens in Houston, but when the most recent murders take on disturbing similarities, local law enforcement officers fear a serial killer is roaming their streets.
Former sheriff's department sergeant Jade Monroe has just graduated from the FBI's serial crimes unit in homicide and is called to Houston with her partner, J.T. Harper, to take on her first assignment—apprehending the person responsible for these gruesome crimes.
With victims piling up and the clock ticking, Jade and J.T. need to intensify their search because there's no sign the killer is slowing down.
After a late-night epiphany while she's alone, Jade suddenly comes face to face with the killer, and now Jade is missing. The clock continues to tick—but this time it's for her.
Note: All Jade Monroe books are standalone stories but since characters carry over, they are best read in chronological order.
Series One - Detective Jade Monroe Crime Thriller Series
.Series Two - Agent Jade Monroe FBI Thriller Series
In this first installment of Sutter's new series, heroine Jade Monroe has just completed FBI training and is assigned to help track down a serial killer in the Houston area. As bodies accumulate, the agents learn that each victim's death involved a concrete block, and their job is to figure out why. The smart, risk-taking heroine that readers came to admire in Sutter's previous Jade Monroe novels is back and in rare form, and the stakes have never been higher, especially when Jade makes a rash decision that threatens to end her FBI career when it's barely begun. The action never slows down in this book, a wild romp of a thriller that Sutter fans will find deeply satisfying." Angela M., Editor, Red Adept Editing
I agree with the other reviewer that the writing style is not very sophisticated. I found the story didn’t flow freely but I stil finished Maniacal (her first book) quite easily once I got used to it.
Uncomfortable writing style
This book is very hard to read due to the strange writing style of the author - lots of unnecessary detail in the wrong spots - I am unable to finish it because it flows so badly.
Jade Monroe series.
Another great read. Highly recommended
