Publisher's Summary

If you love romantic suspense, don't miss the first three books of Toni Anderson's award-winning Cold Justice Series...now available in one thrilling bundle!

A Cold Dark Place (Winner of the New England Readers' Choice Award in Romantic Suspense and Aspen Gold)

FBI Agent Mallory Rooney is hunting the monster who abducted her twin sister and begins to suspect there's a vigilante operating outside the law. Former CIA assassin Alex Parker works for a clandestine government organization hell-bent on taking out serial killers before they enter the justice system. Alex doesn't enjoy killing, but he's good at it. He's good at dodging the law, too - until a beautiful rookie agent has him wondering what it might be like to get caught.

Cold Pursuit (Winner of the 2015 National Excellence in Romance Fiction Award for Romantic Suspense)

A single mom and her son escape with their lives after terrorists attack an American mall. When the boy is targeted for death, an FBI agent helps them disappear and ends up falling in love. But can he keep them safe when the players are more powerful than he ever have imagined and he doesn't know who to trust?

Cold Light of Day (2015 Winner of the Heart of Excellence for Romantic Suspense, and Book Buyers Best Contest)

Physicist Scarlett Stone is the daughter of the most notorious Russian agent in FBI history. With her father dying in prison, she's determined to prove he's innocent, but time is running out. Using a false identity, she gains access to the Russian ambassador's Christmas party, searching for evidence of a set-up. Former Navy SEAL, now FBI Special Agent, Matt Lazlo is attracted to Scarlett, but when he discovers she lied to him about her identity, he hunts her down with the ruthless efficiency he usually reserves for serial killers. Scarlett's scheme fails, but as agents involved in her father's investigation start dying, Matt and his colleagues begin to wonder. Could they have a traitor in their midst?

    ""Two outa three ain't bad""

    Book One –
    I read this one on my kindle, so I won’t give a review because I find that what sometimes works on kindle, does not always work in audio and visa versa. However, I did like this book enough to buy the three book series on audible, and as it takes something pretty good to part me with my hard earned cash, this means I did enjoy book one!

    Book Two-
    This fast paced romantic suspense is a good example of the genre. The plot was bang up-to-date starting with a terrorist mall shooting and then delving deeper into the politics and plotting behind the attack. Unusually (and bravely) the writer often goes into the POV of the terrorists and makes them into real people. She looks at their backgrounds and motivations and attempts to make the reader understand what drives people to carry out what, to the outside observer, seems like mindless violence. Although she never condones their actions, she does give the reader a complete picture of all sides of the issue.

    The romance is believable, but does, annoyingly, have that overused plot device of an H who does not want a relationship because he (illogically) blames himself for his girlfriend’s death many years ago (a scenario never really fully explained), and an h who does not trust men because of her lousy ex. Intelligent people do not let one bad experience colour their lifetime judgement and this reluctance to trust and/or commit is, I think, getting a little stale in romance books.

    While listening to this book I often got irritated at some of the stupid actions/words/thoughts of the main characters. But they both later took time to reflect and face up to their mistakes, and their ability to mess up, screw up but then “fess up” just made them more human. It is skilful writing that allows the H and h to make mistakes in the heat of emotion, but then acknowledge, and work to rectify these mistakes later.

    This is a good book, with never a dull moment right up to the very surprising plot twist at the end. I didn’t see it coming and I admire the author even more for shining a light on the double crossing and double-double crossing (!) that is so much an ugly, but very real, feature of modern day international politics. The final chapter was a good plot wrap up and as the romance had happened pretty quickly, I liked that the couple discussed the future sensibly and realistically, in acknowledgement of the fact they had only actually known each other for several days.

    Book Three-
    Wow. What a contrast to the previous books. The plot is simply ridiculous and its hard to believe it was by the same author.

    The daughter of a convicted spy has spend years developing advanced surveillance electronics (like that would be allowed to happen!), and decides she can prove her father’s innocence by planting a bug in the Russian Ambassador’s office. We are supposed to believe that a party guest at the Russian Embassy can somehow wander into the Ambassador’s office with ease? She fails to consider that the Embassy may actually have CCTV, is surprised to find someone else is already bugging them (duh!), and then manages to drop an earring for the Russians to find. This was less “James Bond” and more “Johnny English”, especially when she decides her way out of the mess she has created is to go to the Russian Embassy “knock on the door, apologise and promise never to do it again”. Seriously???!

    The Navy Seal/FBI agent H was just as incompetent. Someone attaches a mine to his boat, but he stops to put on his jacket and collect his wallet and keys before leaving! He then decides the best place to go after this incident is the hospital where his mother has lain in a non responsive coma for two years, but conveniently still owns a fully charged mobile phone he can use. Huh? He repeatedly makes pretty illogical decisions, probably because he cannot stop musing on his sexual attraction to the h: He “gets hard” when she bites her lip. The h is just as bad and obsesses about her lack of experience but still finds the need to strip half naked just because she gets a bit of blood on her jeans. I am soooo bored with the stereotype of an H with tonnes of sexual experience, but an h who cannot enjoy sex until she falls in love.

    The story takes place over two days and the speed with which the characters involved obtain information is unreal. With relative ease they find huge flaws in the 14 year old conviction against the “spy”, and announce a Presidential Pardon for the wrongly convicted man within a few minutes of the real spy being found.

    Special mention has to go to two scenes that were particularly awful: The first sexual encounter of the H and h, when their passion is interrupted by a discussion about their sexual history; and the “fake rape” scene involving the hostage, which was so ridiculous it actually made me laugh out loud.

    I found myself more interested in the side characters: The H’s boss, the h’s best friend, and the H from the first book in the series, all of whom were much more appealing characters in this books than the couple featured here.

    I will read more books in this series because, as I said in the title "Two outa three ain't bad" but I advise you give Book three in this series a miss.

    "Just a fantastic series!!"

    I originally read book 5 as an ARC and was hooked. I was hungry for a nice new suspenseful, mystery romance thriller. And, Toni Anderson and Eric G. Dove delivered. I immediately got book 1 so I could start back at the beginning. And, after reading that one, the boxed set came out!
    Each book takes you for a ride. I love the characters, the plots, the twists, the tension. It's just fun. And, it sucks you in right away. The only possible draw back is in two of the stories the heroine's tend to want to throw themselves into danger, with no regard for their safety or clear plan do anything productive, and that will only get them killed and not help anyone. And, yet they are both so smart and likable, these small parts just seem out of character. Otherwise, these stories are just fantastic. I have 1 book left in the series that I haven't read yet. I plan to get to that sooner than later. I am a fan of Toni Anderson and Eric G. Dove as narrator. And, I'll be ready and waiting for each additional story to come out as long as they keep me locked in and invested as they have so far. Can't wait for more.

    "Patriotic Romantic Suspense"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! It was a very entertaining listen filled with mystery, horror, suspense, intrigue and romance :) I really enjoyed it.


    What about Eric G. Dove’s performance did you like?

    Eric G. Dove is the only voice I could ever imagine for this series! He does better with every consecutive book even though his narration of the first was amazing. He knows the characters inside and out which allows him to convey they myriad emotions and personalities in a very entertaining and believable manner. Tue seamless transition from one book to the next makes it easy to get lost in the world created by his performance and the author's writing. I hope he continues with this series as I am sure he is the only one who can do it proper justice :) I can't wait to listen to more by this talented voice actor!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    We Always Get Our Man (Or Woman)!


    Any additional comments?

    This series must be listened to (or read) in order. This contains the first three books in the series. I can't wait to listen to Cold Fear!



    This series is filled with strong, independent characters who are driven to find the truth no matter the personal cost. Finding killers, righting wrongs, stopping terrorists, exposing cover-ups are all in a day's work! Humor keeps the stories from being too dark even though the horror and suspense are intense and disturbing. The characters eventually find what they are looking for in a partner and find their requisite HEA but not before an intense action packed thrill ride filled with intrigue and mysteries that are not easy to solve. It will keep you on the edge of you seat and constantly wanting more!



    ***This series is suitable for adult readers who enjoy romantic psychological thrillers with loads of suspense, intrigue, action, adventure, horror and a broken hero learning to live again with a few steamy sex scenes :)

    "I can't get enough of this series! Brilliant"
    Where does Cold Justice Series Box Set, Volume I: Books 1-3 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This series in one of my top 5 listens.
    The stories are fast paced and exciting and the narration is top notch.


    Which character – as performed by Eric G. Dove – was your favorite?

    I love all the characters performed by Eric G. Dove. I am amazed at his range. He has the ability to jump from American to Russian accents convincingly. He does the female voice so well and he graduates his tone of voice to add differentiation between the male characters. It's just brilliant and so easy to listen to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes I definitely wanted to listen to each book all in one sitting. Each book has a very engaging storyline with great characters. I love that my favourite characters from previous books pop up as well weaving a string of connection through the series.


    Any additional comments?

    I received a copy in exchange for an honest review

    "Freaking awesome series!"

    A Cold Dark Place
    I heart romance; I am not a huge mystery fan. That being said I needed to switch things up and something about this story just made me want to listen.

    The performance is outstanding; Eric G. Dove brings you in to the story with the way he performs this novel. The writing is seamless even when I was freaked out from the story because I am a wuss I couldn’t stop listening!

    Mallory Rooney has been through something so terrible and has come out the other side damaged but not broken. I loved her inner strength not only to have gone through what she did but to not let the politics of the job and what people think of her. She doesn’t let it get to her. She is one hell of strong women.

    I am going to be frank CIA assassin Alex Parker freaks me out! I am not joking, he might be a bada$$ mother but he is one that still scares me to bits. He’s got secrets of his own. I love how he can’t get Mallory out of his head. Trust it to a women to bring a man to his knees, he he; I loved that.

    Cold Pursuit

    Now I know in the last book I told you I wasn’t a big mystery suspense fan. I am taking that statement back. I couldn’t put this book down. I loved it. Romance Suspense is quickly become a favorite of mine.
    Vivi Vincent literally lived through a nightmare, with her 8 yr old son who is none speaking.
    Not only that but she is running for her and her sons life with the help of FBI Special Agent Jed Brennan.

    The sparks fly between these two from the get go. It’s plain to see they are hot for each other but circumstance, doesn’t really let romance blossom.

    I found Vivi to constantly second guess herself, but what she doesn’t see and everyone else does is that she is one hell of a mother and its never going to be perfect raising kids never is. It’s all guess work really we learn as we go. Her ex really did a number on her self-confidence, it really is no wonder why she hears him in her head and does second guess herself.

    I think Jed is lonely. That was my take on the guy strong loyal type. Hot too if the way Toni describes him. He can be my protector anytime!
    I love how he was with Michael, Vivi’s son. He doesn’t treat him like he is any different that totally rocks.

    Cold Light of Day

    This was the perfect fit to this box set.
    Not only do we see a fresh new couple and all the things they get in to, to save the one you’re trying to protect. But we get to see some of our old favorites, Alex and Mallory! Yay.

    Now FBI Special Agent Matt Lazlo bumps in to a pretty lady literally.
    He wants to see more of her. But it wasn’t meant to be… Or was it?
    Scarlett Stone is on a mission free her father from all charges before he passes. So she has a plan only the plan doesn’t go as planned.. Does it ever?
    I can tell you I will not look at a screw driver the same again lol. That was pretty epic.

    This book is full of surprises. You always guessing and wanting to know who? What? And why
    I kind of like how bold Scarlett is even when she is scared out of her mind. She goes after what she wants. But Matt is more cautions, you can’t blame him for that but it was nice to see that him give in.

    Here is a line I love and can’t get out of my head.
    “A rubber stamped goat f * c k”

    Yeah I really enjoyed this box set and the narrator. Wow blew me away, I loved his voice and how you just feel a part of the stories because of him.
    Each book as you saw keeps you on the edge of your seat and wanting more more more.
    Yeah so very worth the money the credit worth it all.

    Great story but geez.... the romance theme was so corny predicable. I didn't expect it to be so sappy. The only thing that saved it was the conspiracy suspense.

    "NOT!!"

    I struggled to get through the first book, started the second and just gave up. This series is so juvenile. I got it based on the ratings and thought it would be, at the very least, entertaining. Hogwash! I find that third rate authors find it necessary to interject graphic sex scenes to keep their audience interested. I no more want to hear an author describe "his pulsing rock hard manhood" than I would a friend or coworker. This is simply unnecessary, distracting trash.

    Toni Anderson, concentrate on learning quality writing and leave the porn to the experts.

    "A very well written series......"

    I actually listened to these out of order, having listened first to the second box set then coming back to this set to catch up. It didn't make much difference except that you know what's coming for a couple of the characters. It did not detract from the stories at all! These are so well written, each capturing your attention from the beginning. There are hot FBI agents, strong, smart heroines and plenty of action. The suspense will keep you listening long after you've turned the car off. These characters all have personal issues to overcome in order to find their hea. Each has a vulnerable side but with a core of strength that you know will carry them through the most difficult situations, allowing them to be empathetic and understanding with each other. The banter between the H & h is lol funny at times and their inner dialogues give you plenty of insight into what makes them tick.
    I would definitely recommend this series to anyone who enjoys romance & suspense mixed together. I'm going to flag this author for future releases!

    "The Story is Great but the Narrator is Killing Me"
    What did you love best about Cold Justice Series Box Set, Volume I: Books 1-3?

    The story is great. The narrator kinda kills the story. When he reads normally he is great but the tone he uses for the females is horrible and made me not want to finish listening to it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mallory, she is like your everyday person.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Not let the Narrator change his voice for the charters. If you want different voices for the characters then get different people. The voice that he uses for the females voices is horrible!
