One of the FBI’s top profilers, Keye Street, was on the
fast track to the top, but she blew it. Talented as she was, poor
Keye’s drinking problem deep-sixed not only her career but
also her marriage. Now she’s struggling to make ends meet
in Georgia by serving subpoenas and chasing down bail jumpers.
But the talented, when sober, profiler gets a second chance when
her friend, Aaron Rauser, gives her the opportunity to resurrect
her career with the Atlanta Police Department. A serial killer is
giving the authorities fits and Keye’s expertise may be just
the ticket for unearthing some real clues that will end the psychopath’s
reign of terror.
Of course, Keye jumps at this opportunity to get back to what
she does best. Unfortunately, she is too good at her job, and soon
the hunter becomes the hunted. Most troubling of all, though, is
that the person she seeks isn’t closer to her than she realizes.
This novel marks Amanda Kyle Williams debut as a mystery writer.
She meticulously researched her first novel by spending time with
criminologist Brent Turvey, worked with a local P.I. in her home
town of Atlanta, and took courses on law enforcement in serial homicide
All this paid major dividends, as you’ll see as you read
this well written, tightly plotted mystery that also showcases the
author’s wicked sense of Southern humor.
