Summary

From the bestselling author of Pretty Girls Dancing comes a shattering serial-killer thriller about revenge, deliverance, and survival.

Cady Maddix survived a brutal upbringing - emotionally scarred but hardened - with a will for self-preservation. Hunting fugitives has given her life purpose and control. But when the Deputy US Marshal returns home to care for her Alzheimer’s-stricken mother, a new case stirs old memories.

Child killer Samuel Aldeen has broken out of a nearby facility for the criminally insane, and the authorities believe he was aided by accomplices, both inside and out. Enlisted to track him down, Cady follows an unexpected lead. Her name is Eryn Pullman, a young woman recently released from a neighboring psychiatric facility, a mentally fragile survivor of childhood abuse, and Aldeen’s next designated victim.

To save Eryn’s life, Cady must work fast to uncover the unimaginable link between predator and prey - even as it pulls her into the cold dark places of her own past.

Well Done!!!!

I found this book very absorbing. This is a story of two very dysfunctional families and the secrets they have kept.
The publisher's summary is more than adequate and gives enough information. There are so many likable characters in this story and the few not very likable are enough to make this very taught and suspenseful. The main antagonist really has his head screwed on backwards. This is told from multiple points of view and then and now time frames. The progression in character development is great. The ending is a real treat and totally unexpected.
If you have kindle unlimited this book is FREE to borrow with the kindle edition.
The narration by Christina Traister and Andrew Eiden is excellent. They worked really well together.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

good

great book it was fast moving but Smith. It felt like they tried to fully develop each character but maybe put to much back story to Katie trying to make a connection with Erin.

I take back my previous review

So my previous review stated that I couldn’t finish the book however I changed my mind and finished it. Some action was finally happening and I am glad I finished it. It was a decent book.

Cold Dark Places

The wrote an interesting novel that will hold your attention and ask for more. My only issue is Enrin was not mad at her uncle's wife for letting Erin take the fall for murdering her mother.
