A serial killer is stalking Jack's town--and no one's safe. But they don't know Jack.

Jack looked up at the giant, dead body brazenly hung on the quaint Welcome to Darrington sign. He turned to the town's mayor. "Mayor Lewis, when you said people had nothing to fear, it pricked the killer's vanity. He's using this latest victim to send you a message: Be afraid. Be very afraid--of him. If you want to catch this serial killer, you need to feed his ego. Tell the people he's right. They should be scared--no one's safe while he controls the town."

Rogue hero Jack Stratton is back in another action-packed, thrilling adventure. While recovering from a gunshot wound and the loss of his job on the police force, Jack's romance with feisty Alice (aka Replacement) continues to develop. When Alice gets a seemingly harmless private investigation job--locate the owner of a lost dog--Jack grudgingly assists. Little do they know it will place them both in the crosshairs of a merciless serial killer.


Jack spends a lot of money in hospital bills. It seems he is always getting hurt and Alice is always saving the day. Gotta love a big bad ass detective who always gets saved by a strong petite woman! I am still loving this series.

Helping his girlfriend Alice (aka Replacement) with a new case for her detective agency they find themselves working for the Mayor to help solve the case of a serial killer whose target seems to be men over 6'4" with large animals. Unfortunately for Jack along with this case came an enormous dog, Lady who is not too sure if she likes Jack or not.

This is another fun mystery with great characters, action and intrigue.  I'm almost sad that I'm nearing the end of this series. I feel like Jack and Alice are good friends and I just want to keep finding out whats happening in their lives as they fumble through the world doing what they do best, find the bad guys, and have each others backs.
