To save innocent lives, they'll have to risk their own.
Self-help superstar Rachel de Luca and Detective Mason Brown have finally given in to their overwhelming attraction to each other, but neither of them is ready to let physical passion turn into full-blown romance, so they carefully maintain an emotional distance. Then a judge's daughter disappears, and Mason has a terrible sense that it's connected to the most recent case they solved together: the abduction of Rachel's assistant.
The discovery of a string of missing women — all young, all troubled — seems like a promising lead. But there's no clear connection between the missing girls and the high-profile young woman Mason is trying to find. He realizes that once again he'll have to rely on his own well-honed instincts and Rachel's uncanny capacity to see through people's lies in order to catch a predator and rescue his captives. But can they do it before Rachel becomes his next victim?
New York Times and USA Today bestselling, RITA® Award winning Author Maggie Shayne published 62 novels and 22 novellas for five major publishers over the course of 22 years. She also spent a year writing for American daytime TV dramas Guiding Light and As the World Turns, and was offered the position of co-head writer of the former; an offer she tearfully turned down. It was scary, turning down an offer that big. But in March 2014, she did something even scarier. She left her job with the world’s largest publisher, and went “indie.” And it has gone so well that by July 2015 she had incorporated her new business, Thunderfoot Publishing Inc. She’s never enjoyed her career more.
Brown and de Luca consists of five primary books, and includes two additional books that complement the series but are not considered mandatory reads. The current recommended reading order for the series is provided below.
