Publisher Description

She can keep the doors locked.  The lights on.  Her fingers crossed.   But she can't stop the memories of a terrifying crime.  Or keep it from happening again.

The murderer took his time choosing his pretty victims.  Then he took his time killing them.  What was left when he finished made even veteran Boston cop Harry Jordan feel sick.  But this time the killer made a mistake.  His victim was found alive.

Armed with a police sketch of the man, Harry wanted national publicity, the kind he could get from Mallory Malone, the "TV detective."  Her top-rated show reenacted heinous crimes and often jogged witnesses' memories enough to shake loose the clue that could break the case.  

But not this time.

This case was different for self-made career woman Mallory Malone.  This cop was different.  The case scared her; the cop was falling in love with her.  Her instincts told her to run.  But the killer already knew her name.  Her address.  And a secret that could destroy them both.

Elizabeth Adler was born in Yorkshire, England.  She is married to an American lawyer and has one daughter.  They have lived in Brazil, England, France, and Ireland and currently live in California.  She is the internationally acclaimed author of Léonie, Peach, The Rich Shall Inherit, The Property of a Lady, Fortune Is a Woman, and The Secret of the Villa Mimosa.

Now or Never

This was one of the most engaging mystery novels I've read in a while. The protagonists antagonist were well written and captivating from page one! This story was fast paced and hard to put down. The descriptive writing lead me to skim the details of the actual crimes-I do like a peaceful sleep. It was one of best pieces I've read lately! I'm looking forward to more by this author.
