FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is closing in on a bust of a major criminal organization in San Francisco when he witnesses an undercover member of his team killed right in front of him on a busy street, an accident Roarke can't believe is coincidental. His suspicions put him on the trail of a mysterious young woman who appears to have been present at each scene of a years-long string of accidents and murders, and who may well be that most rare of killers: a female serial.

What a start to a series. Fast paced, full of great characters that the author brought to life, with many twists and turns. I loved the main two FBI agents, the author really brought them to life in their hunt for the Huntress and they made a great team. The hunt uses all their skills and shows their humanity, particularly the lead FBI agent of Rourke. In the same way, you could understand the motivations of the Huntress and the writing gradually revealed her motivations.

I can't wait to catch up with the next in series.

Determined to put her family back together, Sloane Harper stalks her ex-husband and his annoyingly stunning mistress, Kate. But she's not the only one. Handsome IRS agent Ethan Cunning is surveying them too, but not for the same reasons. He is attempting to nail Kate's playboy boss. Ethan and Sloane decide to help each other, which sends Sloane's wobbly life spinning out of control. She'll have to face danger, humiliation, and, scariest of all, the dating scene to lure her daughters' father home.

This was a fun listen to on audio. It moved along at a good pace, with characters you could imagine and mostly like. It was amusing and entertaining and although a little daft in places, with the way the character of Sloane Harper had been portrayed you could imagine these things happening to her. I will definitely be looking out for the next in the series.

This is the first Libby Fischer Hellmann audio book I've listened to not having heard of the author before. Although the book seemed to start quite slowly with an incident in a lift and the kidnapping of Molly Messenger, it suddenly picked up pace becoming a more complex thriller that went off in a number of different directions. As the plot developed the twists and turns kept coming and made me want to keep listening. Georgia Davis is a determined character and this came through well in the story. The audio book was well narrated at a good pace.
