Jordan Russell was working for the FBI when the monster who abducted her as a child resurfaces. She quits the FBI and returns home to Thorny Creek with the idea of finally putting to rest the nightmare of those memories and finding out who he is so she can stop him. She also leaves behind her FBI husband (Sam) who she thinks has a thing for his lady partner. Sam Russell had made a terrible mistake and now he's lost the woman he loves. When Sam gets call from Jordan's cousin (the mayor) with a request to come to Thorny Creek to help investigate the latest victims of a serial killer, known as The Musical Strangler, he jumps at the chance. He's hoping he can help solve the case as well as win back the heart of the woman he can't live without. Jordan hasn't told Sam about her abduction. When he finds out, will he feel differently about her? Can Jordan get past her hurt and forgive Sam for his indiscretion? Above all, will they discover the true identity of the 'The Musical Strangler' before it's too late???

A Familiar Evil is one of those stories that once you start reading you just can't stop. It has all the elements I have come to love about Anne Patrick's writing. Great characters, zippy dialog and lots of red herrings all wrapped up in 'edge of your seat' suspense. I thoroughly enjoyed Sam and Jordan. The interaction between these two was electric. I liked all the secondary characters as well, especially Devin. He's only 9 but what a little charmer he is. I loved all the advice he gave Sam. I enjoyed watching Sam and Jordan work through their issues. It was done in a realistic and believable way. The story keeps a steady pace then ramps up to it's nail-biting conclusion. As with all of Anne's stories, she keeps you guessing on who the killer is until the end. I love that!

I enjoy reading a good mystery/suspense story that is not full of profanity and has what I judge to be appropriate relations between men and women. I have started a lot of books and then stopped reading them once I started noticing the book contained inappropriate sexual content and/or profanity. This is a book I read all the way through, appreciating the suspense and I liked how the author brought the pieces of mystery together to give a satisfactory ending.

From the first page I could not put this book down. Jordan's character grabbed me and the monster she is trying to fight. She worked at the FBI and decided to quit and go back to her home town in Thorny Creek. She is now the town sheriff. When some bodies show up she wonders if they are all connected to a past crime. Unbeknownst to Jordan, her husband Sam, shows up in town to help her. It did not go over to well when he showed up. Jordan has a hard time getting over the kiss her husband and his partner Darcy shared. As if she doesn't have enough of her plate Darcy starts calling Sam and even shows up.

Jordan knows the monster from her past is now in the present and following her. She senses things are wrong and he might be the cause of a lot of murders. With Sam's help they might just catch the person who has done some terrible things.

This fast paced mystery/thriller is a wonderful read. The book kept me guessing till the end. I was surprised at who the person turned out to be that was causing so much sadness and wrecking havoc everywhere. Anne does a wonderful job with the research and descriptions. It makes you feel like you are part of the team and are actually there in Thorny Creek.
