Now someone is killing Eva's former sorority sisters. Each time a body is found, it has the same star-shape branded into them. The killer leaves the body of the first girl at the halfway house where Eva works, torching the place to boot. Detectives Deacon Garrison and Malcolm Kier are assigned to the case.Read more ›
Can' wait for Merciless..the story of Eva's sister Angie.
However, someone begins murdering the sisters; using a heated branding iron to burn a four-pointed star on each of the conscious victims before stabbing their prey in the heart. Alexandria homicide detective Deacon Garrison leads the serial killer investigation with Eva assisting him although neither trusts one another.
Senseless is a strong romantic suspense starring an intriguing heroine who holds the taut thriller together. The relationship between the cop and the con enhances the tenseness of the story line with a late twist that augments the feeling of doom. Readers will want to know who the serial killer is and why this psychopath targets the sorority sisters even with knowing the probable motive most likely ties back to Cross. This is a powerful thriller.
Eva may have been labelled an ex-con, but she never let that hold her back. She was determined and hard working holding down three jobs because she just wanted to earn enough money so she could go back to school. Eva was off the charts smart with a genius IQ and photographic memory...what she could of done with her life if she hadn't been set up all those years ago for a murder she didn't commit? Unfortunately bodies with the same 4-pointed star branded into their flesh start turning up and coincidence...I think not...they just happen to be the bodies of Eva's former "besties" (what goes around comes around girlfriend!).
Working the case is the delectable Detective Deacon Garrison and his partner Malcolm Kier. It doesn't take long for Detective Garrison to piece together that the bodies piling up are somehow related to Eva and her past. And given her past - she's not exactly off the list of likely suspects knocking off her former classmates. I just want to mention one niggle I had about how the author always referred to Deacon as Garrison and his partner as Malcolm (and not Kier).Read more ›
