Publisher's Summary

FBI Agent Alexander King has a special gift for catching vicious predators. He gets inside the twisted minds of psychopaths and hunts them down. However, this case in a small Georgia town is challenging his skills. 

A serial killer named the Angel Maker has kidnapped and killed six little Black girls. Local police did a lackluster investigation, thinking the girls were initially runaways. The Black community believes the case is racially motivated and that the force ignored all the clues. Tensions rise on both sides of town, threatening riots and more unrest. 

In steps FBI Agent Haven Barron. She happens to be from the town and knows most of the victims’ parents. She believes she can catch the killer before he makes it to girl number seven. Alexander thinks she’s a beautiful distraction who could get in the way. Headstrong and determined to save her town, Haven thinks he can keep his opinions to himself.

It’s a rough start with these two unwilling partners. Still, they race to find the murderer, discovering terrifying clues and unraveling shocking secrets from the town’s past. But as this pair spends more time together, sparks fly and a forbidden attraction looms between them. Meanwhile, the psycho is watching them both.

Can they catch this killer? Or will the Angel Maker grab them?

A great story, but suffers from poor narration

The story of two FBI agents who meet and fall in love while tracking a serial killer that preys on young black girls. I’m a huge fan of suspenseful stories. In addition to the hunt for the serial killer there are small town secrets and skeletons just waiting to jump out of closets. Add to that possibly crooked law enforcement and racial tension and you have a recipe for success. The author produced a story that captures your attention despite subpar narration. The female narrator has some weird phrasing. Almost as if punctuation was missing or ignored in certain spots. I also wonder if the problematic elements of the narration like voice tone and cadence could be due to her attempts at a southern accent. The male narrator was definitely the better of the two narrators, but nothing spectacular. With better narration this story would have received 5 stars all around for me.

Great Muder Mystery

I love a good murder mystery and this story was very engaging. I only wished they could have found a male narrator that sounded like the ethnicity he was playing with was a Caucasian American, so, politically incorrect or not, people drawn in by the WMBW romance are going to be looking for that. So this was a no for me. I would rather have read the book instead.

Good Book with the wrong narrators

At the beginning of the book, Lacy makes me LOL, then tragedy strikes; I usually like Leon’s narration; however, he is not the appropriate narrator for this book. The seriousness of the content is not done justice by the way narration was done, no feeling, no outrage. Need to have someone that can truly bring the characters of this book to life to make this story great. The storyline is powerful.

Exceptional r3ad

Great story. Very suspenseful. My only complaint was the narrator. She read very well but her nasal tone took away from a lot of the dialog.

Good Storyline, Wrong Narrators

I enjoyed the story at the very beginning. It really set the the tone for the book, but then Lacey, the female narrator messed it all up for Alexander. I mean it was bad. She made him sound like some kind of detective from one of those old-timey movies. "Here's looking at you, kid." Go YouTube that line and see what I'm talking about. Leon's narration was good, but he doesn't fit the character's ethnicity. I did enjoy his voice, though. The story was good, but Lacey just didn't do it for me.

Great story, wrong narrator

The female narrator made a great story very hard to listen to. She over acted some of the parts and just her overall tone was not suited for this book. I considered stopping many times.

enjoyed

this is one of Kenya's best books... the sex didn't overpower the story. i could easily see this in the same standing as a James Patterson book.

FBI agents are not that stupid and unprofessional

narrator was awful and I hated the fake southern accent. The portrayal of the main character was almost insulting. she. did not behave with class or as an intelligent woman in a man's world would if she wanted success. The lead agent was more interested in getting bedded than in 6 dead girls. sorry I wasted money on this.

Oh Well…

I have been looking for an interracial romance where the BW was not attracted to a criminal. It is harder to find than I’d like to say. I read another book by Ms. Wright, Redemption, as the summary appeared that it was a former, reformed, assassin protecting a woman who was escaping an abusive situation. I found that not only was he not very “reformed” but they murdered her abuser, cut him up, and fed him to hogs. The BW in the story then prayed to God, asking if He had brought her to this man so that they could kill this man. Needless to say, I was very disappointed.

So……I tried this story as they are both FBI agents. Fingers crossed and hopeful.

The story was better, more depth and character detail, but again, the mix of a religious theme with raw, steamy sex was a mood killer. Now, I’m no prude, and I firmly believe that a Godly woman has every right to get her freak on, but the mix is a little difficult to handle.

As I referenced before, the story itself has a good base with a crime mystery as it’s foundation. The very detailed sex scenes are late in the book, so it may not bother you. This is MY review and my own personal critique, so you may love it. It’s not for me.

Another personal “issue” is the female narrator. At times her voice reminded me of a female version of that bespectacled, suspender on high water pants wearing 90s TV icon, Steve Urkel. I’m just glad she never said “Did I do that???” when looking at her partner prior to sex, if you get my drift. I actually skipped a couple of her chapters, hoping the male narrator would fill in the story blanks. It worked.

It also could use a good Editor with a better handle on grammar so they could correct some tense issues with a few words, such as eaten vs ate and taken vs took,etc.

Yeah, found a lot of things kind of annoying, so maybe I’m nitpicking a little. Sorry.

Guess I’ll keep searching.

Great storyline. Bad narration.

I enjoyed the overall storyline but was not a fan of the narrators. More specifically, I thought the female narrator sounded as though she was very congested and she made her male voice always sound as though attempting to sound sexy which was inappropriate for the main storyline. it was difficult to listen for this reason.
