Story Overview:
The moment detective Reed Novak steps onto the crime scene, he knows the case is going to rock his world. A beautiful young woman murdered at home. No sign of forced entry. No motive. She’s obviously not the killer’s first victim, and Reed’s instincts tell him she won’t be his last. Reed’s first clue comes via a mysterious text that links to a dating profile, but even more intriguing than the clue is the person who sent it.

As a white-hat hacker in the Delphi Center’s cyber investigation unit, Laney Knox sneaks into some of the deepest, darkest corners of the Internet looking for predators. Laney would prefer to stay away from Austin PD’s most recent murder case, but she can’t ignore the chilling similarities between that crime and her own brutal attack years ago. Laney offers to help the sexy lead detective, but he wants more from her than just a promising tip—Reed wants her trust. Laney resists, but as their relationship deepens she’s tempted to reveal the closely guarded secrets that could make her a key witness…or the killer’s next victim.

My Review:
Laura Griffin writes amazing, smart romantic suspense. This book was full of twists and turns and the details were just amazing. I learned so much about the world of hackers (and am now a bit scared about that little camera at the top of my laptop.)

I adore Laney's character. She's tough and persistent and when she gets a goal in her mind, she doesn't let go of it. That's what makes her so very good at her job. She's a computer hacker...and her specialty is tracking down weakness...something that she has in common with the serial killer in this book because he's a computer expert too. The fact that Laney has a personal tie to the serial killer story just adds another element of intrigue to the story. It takes a while before her full story is exposed in the book...and that kept me engaged in ths story too. 

Then there's Reed. He's this tough detective who's seen it all, but Laney takes him completely by surprise. She's too young for him, too tenacious. She scares him just because he is so drawn to her when everything says he shouldn't get involved with her. Then add in the fact that she refuses to back away from this case...a case that seems to endanger her more everyday...and then he's terrified.

I enjoyed every moment of reading this story. It was a great enthralling story that kept me interested from page one. It was simply another great story in this series from Laura Griffin. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
