WOW! I am a beta reader & lucky enough to have already read this. I did not read the prequel Hunting Mariah, but was still able to follow this 1. Mariah is again in danger & this time through all the twists & turns, she takes matters into her own hands. I was shocked by the violence of being in a serial killers mind! Janice did a wonderful job of making it so suspenseful, I found it hard to put the book down!
