12 cold cases. 12 kidnapped women. One diabolical serial killer. In this bestselling suspense thriller, a brilliant FBI agent faces a deadly challenge: decipher the mystery before each one is murdered.
FBI Special Agent Maya Gray, 39, has seen it all. She’s one of BAU’s rising stars and the go-to agent for hard-to-crack serial cases. When she receives a handwritten postcard promising to release 12 kidnapped women if she will solve 12 cold cases, she assumes it’s a hoax.
Until the note mentions that, among the captives, is her missing sister.
Maya, shaken, is forced to take it seriously. The cases she’s up against are some of the most difficult the FBI has ever seen. But the terms of his game are simple: If Maya solves a case, he will release one of the girls.
And if she fails, he will end a life.
Maya embarks with an urgency unlike any she’s ever felt. In a race against time, and with her sister’s life hanging in the balance, she must unravel the link between the 12 captives and end the killer’s dark game once and for all. Is this killer toying with her? Does he truly have her sister? Will he ever give her back?
Or will Maya end up sucked too deep into this killer’s twisted cat-and-mouse game to notice that she, herself, is the prey?
A complex psychological crime thriller full of twists and turns and packed with heart-pounding suspense, the MAYA GRAY mystery series will make you fall in love with a brilliant new female protagonist and keep you turning pages late into the night. It is a perfect addition for fans of Robert Dugoni, Rachel Caine, Melinda Leigh or Mary Burton.

The book was a very easy read.
Awesome book with twists and turns. Thought I new early on who the kidnapper was but I was wrong 😂
I did find a few grammar errors and that’s a pet peeve for me but not enough to take away a star because the story was so good!!!
Great book all around!!!
this book was so good I wouldv’e given it five stars but I didn’t like how short it was. longer crime books are better for me because of the build up of events. Despite that I still loved this book and Maya and Marco are so cute together!! the local cops were making me so mad ugh screw them.
