Detective Delsey MacKay woke up screaming. Six months earlier she suffered a brutal attack the hands of Tom Ireland. The police had not caught him. He returned with a vengeance; the body count is adding up. MacKay knew it was him, the M.O. was the same. Agent Walker Grey stayed as close to MacKay as possible, determined Ireland would not get near her again.
MacKay thought she was ready to return to work until she began seeing bodies, photographs and messages written in blood. Will the department allow her to stay on the case or will they force her off? How did Ireland obtain the photos? When bodies were found a little farther away Agent Walker must leave MacKay's side. Will she be safe? Ireland wants power and control for his own sadistic satisfaction. Will they get to him before he can get to MacKay?
This novel is the sequel to Twisted Desire. In the first book we meet most of the characters. Ireland is a serial killer. He sets his sights on Detective MacKay, captures her and tortures her. While this book can stand alone, I recommend reading both books and in order. In this novel the reader knows who the serial killer is. The plot revolves around how Ireland will reach his main target, Detective MacKay.
I enjoyed this book; it was a fast suspenseful read and very entertaining. My one criticism is the length, I wish the author had made it a bit longer. The characters make this book. Ireland was a frightening serial killer and MacKay and Grey work great together, all are well developed.
