Book 1 of the Cincinnati PD story.
If you’ve read ‘Did You Miss Me’, you’ll remember FBI Special Agent Deacon Novak whose appearance is very striking and a superstar. He’s the main character in this book.
Psychologist Faith Corcoran is desperate to escape the stalker who’s made her life a nightmare for the past year—desperate enough to run to the one place that has been her nightmare far longer. Both boon and bane, her recent inheritance of her grandmother’s old house in Cincinnati offers sanctuary in which she can start her life anew, but requires that she face the dark memories that still resonate to this day.
But she has no idea how close to home her fears still are.
Two college girls have gone missing in the area, and FBI Special Agent Deacon Novak is called to work on the case. When his inquiry unexpectedly leads him to Faith, he finds a beautiful and brave woman he can’t help but fall for. Soon they’ll discover that this seemingly simple investigation is anything but. Reaching back decades into Faith’s own past, it will shatter everything she believes to be true and will give terrifying new meaning to flesh and blood.
I’ve been enjoying KR’s books so far. The suspense is there and so as the romance.
Faith is a psychologist who works with criminals thinking that they can be ‘save’. Especially she works on a case when the guy slit her throat when she exposed him but he swore an oath in court claiming that Faith is jealous of him and they’re having an affair. Many believe that man claims. When the man is released from prison, he’s stalking Faith and she made numerous complaints and reports to the Miami PD. But they didn’t take her claims seriously as all of them thought that Faith is trying to gain attention to herself and many felt that she deserves it. Faith ‘ran’ away by quitting her job and changed her last name so that no one will be able to track her location down as well as the stalker. But she’s wrong.
FBI Special Agent Deacon Novak had transferred to Cincinnati to be close to his family members. Especially his younger brother had gotten into trouble once again. He’s been assigned to work on an unconscious ‘Jane Doe’ case. She’s lying on the road naked and bleeding when a good Samaritan found her and call 911 for help. That’s when Deacon met Faith.
I couldn’t say much since I’ll be giving away clues but then the title did tell you something about it.
