This is the kind of book where you resent the intrusions of real life that force you to put it down. Well, most of the time. Sometimes it was so intense and scary, I HAD to put it down! A terrific pace and a complex plot that kept me guessing. ~Norah Wilson, author of the Serve and Protect Series
"Ragan executes this spine-chilling thriller with such razor-sharp precision readers are left breathless." ~Romantic Times, 4 1/2 TOP PICK --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Let me tell you the serial killer is just downright creepy. The guy's nicknamed "Spiderman" for a reason. This book labeled as a romantic suspense is heavy on the thriller/suspense and very, very light on the romance. Jared and Lizzy's story is still a good one as they try to reconnect after everything that's happened in the last 10 years. Lizzy's character develops slowly as the story moves along and there are times I wondered if she'd ever be able to move forward. The torture scenes are graphically detailed which intensifies the creep factor. The side characters are realistic and I was amazed at how Lizzy, Jared and Spiderman's family dynamics twist and turn. The story is nicely woven together for a terrific ending. The story keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat the entire time. Totally engrossing and a terrific read.
I read mostly mysteries but this was harder to get through because of the child sexual abuse, multiple mutilations and animal cruelty. Some of it in my opinion was to much - ever single character was emotionally scarred. As a pet lover and cat owner what happens to Lizzy's cat was too much for me.
I would read another of Ragan's book and hopefully it's not as dark.
This story is fast paced, thrilling and full of non-stop action. I couldn't put it down. The writing is excellent and I absolutely loved the Heroine and Hero and the secondary character Haley (I really hope to see a story for Haley). If you like Lisa Gardner, Beverly Barton, Laura Lippman and the like, you will find in this author, a new favorite.
Theresa, where you been girl? I'm looking forward to reading all you have. Congratulations on your thriller debut!
Just about everyone in the book forgets their cell phone in their car, just as they need it, or they have a dead battery. There's a deranged killer on the loose and he's clearly after a few specific people, but nobody wants to change their lives, including the mother of a targeted teenager.
After killing a number of young girls, the police never realized a very obvious connection to all of them. I could go on and on.
I agree with other reviews which are critical of how many cliches there are. If I had to read about hiding from your own shadow one more time I might have put my finger down my throat. It seemed very sophomoric on almost every level. I realized right away the writing needed a really good editor, but the story being told was just good enough to get me through the book, although I thought about not finishing it many times. The author simply doesn't do a very good job of telling what is a good story.
The author tries to have the victim act tough at times, but then she turns into this knock-kneed idiot all of a sudden. She makes super bad choices, forgets her phone etc. It reminds me of an old horror flick...you know the one, when the girl running from the killer keeps falling down over and over. Yeah, that one. Then the most humorous part was when she was trying to paint the killer's sister and friends in a bad light, and said they all got drunk, smoked weed, and snorted crack cocaine. First of all, no idiot snorts crack cocaine. Cocaine is what they snort, crack-cocaine is when the cocaine is cooked so that it can be smoked. Cocaine doesn't smoke well, and crack doesn't snort well. The kids might as well have snorted baking soda.Read more ›
