“A serial-killer targets the country’s most vulnerable women in this new thriller featuring Detective Carson Ryder.
They thought they were safe at last…
Across the US, a secret network of crisis centres permanently relocates women in serious danger from domestic abuse. But now someone is killing them before they reach their destinations.
Detectives Carson Ryder and Harry Nautilus are having trouble gaining the trust of the volunteers who run the scheme. The only way in is for an undercover police officer to pose as a threatened woman, making herself a target and drawing the killer out.
Reinetta Early is the ideal candidate – but she also happens to be Harry’s niece. He always promised his sister that he would keep Reinetta safe from harm. Suddenly he’s unsure if he can even keep her alive…”
This is book 8 in the Carson Ryder series from Jack Kerley, and it doesn’t disappoint! I’ve already mentioned Kerley in an earlier post!

I don’t like going into detail as I don’t like spoilers, but I can honestly say that I found myself flying through the book trying to figure out who the killer was, and when the time came, I wasn’t really expecting it! Kerley has a way of ramping up the tension and then flying through the climax in the last few chapters. With other authors, this annoys me but with him, not so much!
If you’ve never read any of Kerley’s books, I would highly recommend them! I find they really hook me after only a few pages!
I’m off to Amazon to do some shopping 😉
