"I devoured this book! Clear your calendar before starting Cold Malice, because you won't want to put it down!" -USA Today bestselling author Rachel Grant.
Twenty years ago, she was a cult leader's innocent daughter and he was an undercover agent who broke her heart and destroyed her life. Now he's back...
ASAC Steve (Mac) McKenzie is leading a task force investigating a series of malicious crimes in the heart of Washington, DC. His undercover work in an antigovernment compound twenty years earlier is related—as is the sweet, innocent girl he befriended back then. Now that girl is a beautiful woman, and she has something to hide.
Tess Fallon spent a lifetime trying to outrun her family's bigotry, but someone is using the anniversary of her father's death to carry out evil crimes and she's terrified her younger brother is involved. She sets out to uncover the truth and comes face-to-face with a man she once idolized, a man she thought long dead. As the crimes escalate, it becomes obvious the killer has an agenda, and Tess and Mac are running out of time to stop him.
Will the perpetrator use a decades-old dream of revolution to attack the federal government? And will the fact that Tess and Mac have fallen hard for one another give a stone-cold killer the power to destroy them?

Great who dun-it.
Well written. Kept my interest throughout. Well worth reading.
Too formulaic by now.
And... with pages upon pages upon pages of the struggle (no I can’t... never... but really what was one night) between the FBI Agent & and the central woman character. I had to start skimming 3 or 4 pages at a time.
Same goes for the (explosion through my core!” sex scenes. 4 pages taken right out of every previous book.
That said, I enjoyed the premise & plot although I had figured out the ending quite ahead of time.
This was my favorite book so far. I have 2 more to read, but this one was the best.
