Samantha Kennedy is an FBI agent working a case of young men being tortured and killed. Her superiors are not sure she is ready for field work and order her back to the office. Sam, however, has met Max Ridgeway and they have begun a tenuous relationship. While they are together Max finds out that his brother has been kidnapped. He is told not to involve the police, but he does not know what Sam does for a living. When he finds out he is furious and thinks she has jeopardized his brother's life. Sam will not give up and stays with Max throughout the time his brother is missing. She helps run the investigation from inside one of the victims homes. No one around them is who they seem. Little does she know what she will find out in the course of the case.
Mystery and suspense at it's best with some steamy scenes thrown in for good luck. Really good story and liked reading about characters that I had read in the last book. Samantha fights inner demons through the whole book trying to show everyone that she can do her job. Max is a very strong man who does not like to be told what he can and can not do. They throw sparks off each other constantly, but through it all keep their eye on what they are doing. The cover is nice, not sure if it enhances the storyline though. Very good read for mystery lovers.
