In this crime fiction thriller, a serial killer of young women hides in plain sight in a quiet county in the Midwest. He hides behind a friendly face that inspires trust and a personality that is charming and persuasive - and has a rage to kill he can't control.
Detective Jennifer Brennan, still haunted by her abduction five years before, devotes her life to serving and protecting others. So when three young women go missing in her small county in Indiana and are found murdered on her watch, she vows to find the killer - or die trying.
A personal relationship with her partner, Detective Blake Stone, would be violating the strictest of the department's unspoken rules and career suicide, especially since she is the sheriff's daughter. But the connection Jennifer has with Blake is nothing short of electric. Working with him daily and denying her attraction is hard. But when he moves in to protect her, it becomes unbearable. As they fight temptation, two detectives race against time to find the killer before he strikes again. It is the most important case of their careers. It could be their last.
