With her national bestselling debut, Hush, Anne Frasier joined the ranks of Tami Hoag, Lisa Gardner, and Kay Hooper as a strong new voice in blockbuster suspense fiction. Now she pits a female FBI profiler against a serial killer whose violent history has ties to her own tragic past.
Wake up, little darling. Do you like what you see?
He’s looking for the perfect woman. Someone who won’t disappoint him, like so many have before. Someone who’ll love him. Someone who won’t have to die for her mistakes.
Give up, little darling.
FBI agent Mary Cantrell has been called to Minneapolis to hunt down a killer. It’s shaking her to the core, and reviving dreadful memories. Years ago, her best friend was murdered. Now the man convicted of the crime, Gavin Hitchcock, is free—and Mary’s own sister Gillian, a local cop, has befriended him.
No one can hear you scream but me.
As each clue leads them closer to Hitchcock, Mary and Gillian set themselves up as the perfect target — and the perfect trap. Unless Mary’s own past is blinding her to an unimaginable truth….and plunging her into a waking nightmare.
"Enthralling. There's a lot more to this clever intrigue than graphic police procedures. Indeed, one of Frasier's many strengths is her ability to create characters and relationships that are as compelling as the mystery itself. Will linger with the reader after the killer is caught. "
"Guaranteed to keep you awake at night."
"They'll be no sleeping after reading this one. Laced with forensic detail and psychological twists."
""Gripping and intense… Along with a fine plot, Frasier delivers her characters as whole people, each trying to cope in the face of violence and jealousies."
