Publisher's Summary

A serial killer lures a beautiful FBI agent into high stakes game of life and death in this romantic thriller by the New York Times bestselling author.

The game is simple: he is the Hunter; they are the Prey. He gives them a chance to escape. To run. To hide. To outsmart him. But eventually, he catches them. And that's when the game gets really terrifying . . .

Private investigator Griffin Powell and FBI agent Nicole Baxter know a lot about serial killers—they took one down together. But this new killer likes playing games with Nic and Griff. Every unsolvable clue, every posed victim, every taunting phone call—it's all part of his plan. But now the Hunter is changing the rules . . .

The brutal psychopath needs a worthy adversary. To him, Nicole is the most precious prey of all. And he won't stop until he gets his chance to hunt her down. Now, with his partner in a killer's sights, Griff is playing for the biggest stakes of his life.

Contains mature themes.

Beware - this is a very graphic

I found this book to be way to graphic for me in terms of describing the gruesome acts of a serial killer. I don't need to hear the blow by blow of how each shot impacts the victim and the defiling of the body. Beyond that it has some good qualities, but the two main characters would never start to fall in love in rea life. If I were a woman I might actually find it insulting .

Loved It

As a Bookaholic & Audible afficianado I approve this book! I read a few reviews that nitpicked about little things, but I kept an open mind and went for it. Boy am I glad I did. I kept wondering how they were going to get through this book with that much time but it flowed easily, and kept me glued! Now on to the next one!

These characters should be divorced. Still fun

The narrator was fantastic! I have avoided reading this specific book in the series for a long time, but it fits thematically with the others. Suspenseful and engaging, the long read/listen is worth the payout at the end. However I stand by my opinion Nic Baxter & Griffin Powell are far too similar, too high-handed, and get far too messy in the continuation of the series to stay married.
