"Kate Brady's debut novel is everything romantic suspense should be: scary, sexy, pulse-pounding, and page-turning. Remarkable characters, pitch-perfect pacing, and a memorable villain make One Scream Away a standout book. A winner."
-- Allison Brennan, New York Times bestselling author on One Scream Away
SHE'LL RISK EVERYTHING
Special prosecutor Kara Chandler is very good at her job, so good that a homicidal mastermind vows to kill her and everyone she cares about. Desperate to save herself and her son, Kara seeks out cartel hit man Luke Varón. The last time she dealt with Luke, she saw him beat the system and escape prison. But now, the most dangerous man she's ever met is the only one who can keep her alive.
HE'LL STOP AT NOTHING
Luke Varón isn't who he appears to be. After spending years in the criminal underworld, he seeks redemption . . . and revenge. Yet when he sees the fear in Kara's eyes, he can't walk away. People around her are being murdered, and only he can help uncover the killer's motive. Now as danger closes in, Kara and Luke must trust each other with their darkest secrets - before the evil in their lives destroys them both.
Villain Sasha Rodin narrates alternating chapters in the intense sequel to Where Angels Rest, but watching him plot against the heroine only increases the tension as corpses pile up. Sasha's diabolical plot comes at Atlanta ADA Kara Chandler out of left field as he begins murdering people she loves, including her husband. She suspects that only her own demise will end the killings and protect her son, Aiden, so she calls on Luke Var n, a skilled and resourceful hit man, and asks him to help her fake her death. The crook is highly skeptical of the public servant, but mutual mistrust isn't enough to keep the pair out of the sack, as Kara and Aiden flee and Sasha pursues. Despite a couple of plot holes big enough to throw a cadaver through, Brady delivers a decent dose of suspense with a solid twist ending.
