Monica’s stomach fluttered with excitement as she told the interesting man she’d been flirting with online for weeks all about her weekend plans. He was a great match, and they had so many things in common. But sometimes your life can come down to one single bad decision...
NYPD Computer-crimes detective Connor Mitchel’s sister is missing. As he combs through his sister’s life, he realizes Monica might not have been this killer’s first target—or his last. In a twisted game of cat and mouse, Connor thinks he’s finally found the man responsible for his sister’s disappearance. Unfortunately, he’ll first need to convince the shy, distrustful Evelyn Price she could be the next victim tangled in the murderer’s web if she doesn’t agree to help him catch the killer. But just as Connor and Evelyn close in on their quarry, the killer has one last trick up his sleeve that could trap them all…
Get ready for the ultimate level of suspense and mystery!
Get ready for the ultimate level of suspense and mystery! Connor’s sister has been kidnapped, and he is extremely frustrated because although he’s a detective, he’s been taken off the case. Determined to find out who took his sister and get her back safely, he works his own angle ends up meeting Evelyn, who he believes is the killer’s next target. Evelyn has decided to attempt to date thanks to her friends nagging, and decides, as a way to ease into it would be to go on a date with someone she went to high school with. She doesn’t know him well but he’s familiar because of their knowing of each other in the past. But once Connor and Evelyn meet, things start to progress and the killer begins to toy with them as he knows they are both on to him. In the end, I didn’t see any of what happened coming, and found myself thoroughly involved in helping Connor put the clues together. In combination with the suspense and mystery, we also found Connor and Evelyn explore the chemistry they realize they have early on, and we see Evelyn work through her past trauma. This book was interesting because we find out who the murder is in the beginning and throughout the storyline we see the detective work to put things together and piece together the clues to find out who it is. While I enjoyed that, it also became somewhat frustrating when Connor had trouble connecting the dots. Overall, I definitely enjoyed this book!
