A serial killer is ravaging Atlanta, sending taunting messages to the media. A.P.D. lieutenant Aaron Rauser is desperate to put the killing spree to an end, so he calls upon ex–FBI profiler Keye Street.

Keye had passion and dedication, a path to greatness within the FBI.  Addiction to alcohol trampled those dreams. Now sober, Keye picks up jobs wherever she can, usually serving subpoenas and hunting down bailjumpers. Not having the best reputation lately, Keye isn’t thrilled to be pulled into the limelight, part of one of Altanta’s biggest investigations.

It’s not too long before Keye is wrapped up in the case and becomes the hunted, the stranger she seeks even closer than she could have ever realized.

The Stranger You Seek is an electrifying thriller, the intensity just as hot as a sweltering Atlanta summer. At nearly 300 pages, this is a book you will be desperate to finish in one sitting. Keye is a completely flawed heroine, but the reader can’t help but want to root for her.  The pacing is fast and continues through the entirety of the book. The ending is quite possibly one of the most heart-stopping conclusions I have read in some time; I’m happy to see this is the beginning of the series.  Keye Street is a character I want to follow!

Stay tuned as later today I have a signed copy of the review copy to give away to one lucky reader!

    I loved flawed characters because they’re more realistic. This sounds like my kind of book.

    Oh this sounds really good. I haven’t really read many thrillers recently and I’m in the market for a new and good one.

    I always love to know about books that one wants to read in one sitting! But why the name Keye? Guess I’ll have to read it to find out!
