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 The same year, she won the Romance Writers of Australia's most prestigious award for unpublished writers, the Emerald Award.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.

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.

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.

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing July 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
it was described as a mystery but is 90 percent romance. if they spent as much time solving the murders as they did admiring each others butts it would easily been solved. Amazon needs to describe the books accurately.

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too bad. August 6, 2014
By L.B.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought this started out really promising. But after only six chapters, I had to quit. Generally, the writing was pretty good. EXCEPT, there were so many bodily reactions that at first it was comical, then it became downright irritating. Compressed lips. Gritting teeth. Clenched stomachs. Narrowed eyes. Shudders. Flushed faces. Flaring eyes. Tensed jaws. Burning gazes. Then drilling gazes. More flushed cheeks. Eyes turning wild. More compressed lips. Then pressed lips. Then pursed lips. Suppressing a grin. Suppressing a shudder. Suppressing a shiver. Lots of groans (for no apparent reason). And on and on and on. I've never seen so many references to physical expressions in my life. Add to that the fact that the the mystery is almost immediately derailed by the lead characters' lusting after each other and I felt I just couldn't go on. Too bad. It had potential.

1.0 out of 5 stars This Profile is to be Avoided! July 20, 2014
By Jan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is promoted as a murder mystery. Not! It is just a cheap romance with pornographic writing disguised as a mystery. Within the first few minutes of starting this book, it is clear "whodunit." All the rest is just a poorly written romance with cheap pornography, all of which is not that well written. Somehow it really offended me to think I was reading a good murder mystery to be so short changed by this author. If I had it to do all over again, I would definitely not spend my time trying to trudge my way through this book. Even being a free book, it wasn't worth the price I paid... the time I spent hoping it would improve. It never did!

4.0 out of 5 stars More Romance Than Suspense July 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First, be aware that this book is romantic suspense, heavy on the romance and light on the mystery/suspense. I expected more of a thriller, so this aspect took me by surprise and might be a letdown for readers seeking fast-paced suspense.

Overall, I thought this was a good opening novel for the series. The author handles characterization well, allowing us to get to know Ellie and Clayton. The story's focus is really on these two people, the sexual tension between them, and their struggle to let go of the heartache of their pasts. The murder mystery, while interesting, feels secondary to their personal stories and budding romance.

This series features a family of people involved in law enforcement, rather than a single main character, giving the author plenty of room to create. I'm looking forward to finding out where book #2 takes us.
