A prison break from a maximum security prison. Frantic calls from the FBI. Special Agent Riley Paige's worst nightmare has come true: a serial killer she put away years ago is loose.
Riley is used to being the one hunting, but for the first time, she finds herself - and her family - to be the ones being hunted. As the killer stalks her, he also begins a new rampage of kills, and Riley must stop him before it is too late - for the other victims, and for herself.

But this is no ordinary killer. He is too smart, and their game of cat-and-mouse too twisted, and he somehow manages to elude her and always stay one step ahead. Desperate to stop him, Riley realizes there is only one way: she must delve back into the past, into this killer's twisted mind, his old cases, and re-learn what drives him. The only way to stop him, she realizes, is to face the darkness she thought she had left behind.


Once again Riley puts her career on the line to try to catch a killer, only this killer has his eyes set on Riley.  Riley put him away several years ago and killed his girlfriend, now he is looking for payback but unfortunately his killing is random making it hard to figure out where he will be next.

This book had me pretty mad a few times.  April, Riley's daughter was being ridiculously spoiled and bratty and her ex-husband is an idiot.  Riley does everything she can to try to keep her family safe and just like her they just can't seem to keep themselves out of harms way.

With the help of her longtime partner and the other missing inmate hopefully she can find the killer before he gets his revenge.

I like these books but some of the ways her family behaves in this book jumped the shark for me. However the action and mystery kept me reading.
