Book Description

A psychopathic killer is stalking the women of Sydney . . .
Federal Agent Clayton Munro, a criminal profiler with the Australian Federal Police (AFP), has been called upon to assist in hunting down a vicious murderer who is intent upon carving up his victims while they’re still alive. Guilt-stricken over his wife’s suicide, Clayton’s forced to set aside his personal issues in order to focus on the case.
Detective Ellie Cooper is also no stranger to heartache. Pregnant and abandoned at the altar by a fiancé intent on pursuing a career with the AFP, her opinion of the elite body of officers is anything but favorable. Angered when her boss orders her to partner with the Fed, she’s determined not to cut him any slack.
But women are dying on the streets of western Sydney and the pressure is mounting to find the person responsible.
Will Clayton and Ellie be able to put aside their animosity and work together to catch a killer before it’s too late? And what about the special fascination the killer seems to have with Ellie . . .

About the Author

Chris Taylor grew up devouring romance books. After working as a criminal lawyer for fifteen years, it was a natural progression to marry her love of romance with the gritty, fast-paced world of crime and thrillers. It is this background that has allowed her to write suspenseful, racy, no-holds-barred romantic suspense novels set in her home country of Australia. From the streets of Sydney to the outback, Chris' novels not only keep you on the edge of your seat, they also take you on a journey across the beautiful landscapes that make up Australia. Chris was a Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Finalist in 2013. The same year, she won the Romance Writers of Australia's most prestigious award for unpublished writers, the Emerald Award. Chris lives with her husband and five children on a small farm in rural New South Wales, Australia.

1.0 out of 5 stars romance, no mystery July 18, 2014
By connie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
this is 90% romance. I signed up for mystery thrillers. In the first few pages we learned the identity of the killer. Then blah-blah till the last few pages. If you like romance mystery, you will probably like this. I don't and I didn't.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK story, but silly and adolescent romance July 18, 2014
By Halvena
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The main story is about the hunt for a serial killer in Sydney and it is not a bad story and it is not badly written. That it is set in Sydney is refreshing, most stories of this kind tend to come from the US.
But - the characters are not up to par! They have all suffered a major tragedy themselves, a daughter that disappeared, a child that died and a wife who committed suicide. This is probably meant to make them seem real and human, but it is just too much and it is mentioned over and over and over again. Then there is the romance, The main characters are of course gorgeous, both of them, and they are of course instantly attracted to each other and it is just too obvious where this is going from the start. This adolescent love story takes over the whole thing and is so irritating that it spoils an otherwise nice story.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Profiler April 7, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I fully concur with the other reviewers! Really enjoyed this book. Loved the characters Clayton and Ellie - both very real. Great setting in Sydney and a good story line - very believable. It is always a pleasure to read a book that is set in your own country. Chris Taylor is a gem! Cannot wait for the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Australian Thriller with Sizzle April 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
An Amazing First Book – New Series
Love the exotic setting of Australia and the introduction to this family of members dedicated to serving and protecting. I really enjoyed this truly chilling thriller. It made me realize some people are just plain evil and if you're in the wrong place at the right time being careful won't make a difference. A frightening read.
David Baldacci and James Patterson, beware. Chris Taylor is a talented new writer who loves words and tells a thrilling story while weaving in hot romance to boot.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Nice, Easy Read July 24, 2014
By Annie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Good story, well written with enough detail to give the reader a clear sense of place. Equal parts mystery and romance made for a great vacation read!

The characters are well fleshed out....though I could have done without the gratuitous sex. There are a couple of slips in the book....one, which leaves a reader grasping at "what did I miss" comes at the very end of the book....however, the story flows well and the reader leaves behind these small snafus quickly.

Some reviews I've read have made issue with the cursing in the book. It doesn't bother me, in fact, it lends more credibility to the story, as the characters feel more real, more likely to be people you've met before. With the exception of a very graphic word or two, buried in the descriptions of the sex scene.....would have been nice to NOT have that, but seeing as the book is placed in Australia, you can overlook it as, perhaps, words that do not have the same type of cringeworthiness as here in the US.

As a "first in a series" book , it is well crafted. Thankfully, the series will focus on other members of the family, Hopefully the next installment does not follow the same formula.

2.0 out of 5 stars more cheesy romance than thriller... July 22, 2014
By Vernon
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first 25% is a pretty good thriller. I didn't mind that we were introduced to the killer in the prologue. The next 50% is a trashy romance novel with a little of the thriller story mixed in. I don't mind a little romance but this was just trash. To take us from a good story into explicit sex scenes just wasn't necessary. Finally for the last 25% of the book the author gets back to the thriller story. It also drove me nuts that a supposedly intelligent woman would automatically hate someone because he worked for the same division of law enforcement as her ex-boy friend. I was sorry I wasted my time on this read and probably will not read any more in the series.

Set in Western Sydney, this story is one which simultaneously terrifies and captivates. The disturbing murder mystery builds alongside the beautifully crafted sexual tension. Bloody book kept me awake all night!!
