FBI special agent Adele Sharp is a German-and-French raised American with triple citizenship — and an invaluable asset in bringing criminals to justice as they cross American and European borders.

When a serial killer case spanning three U.S. states goes cold, Adele returns to San Francisco and to the man she hopes to marry. But after a shocking twist, a new lead surfaces and Adele is dispatched to Paris, to lead an international manhunt.

Adele returns to the Europe of her childhood, where familiar Parisian streets, old friends from the DGSI, and her estranged father reignite her dormant obsession with solving her own mother’s murder. All the while she must hunt down the diabolical killer, must enter the dark canals of his psychotic mind to know where he will strike next — and save the next victim before it’s too late. 
An action-packed mystery series of international intrigue and riveting suspense, Left to Die will have you turning pages late into the night.

Books two and three in the series – Left to Run and Left to Hide – are also available for preorder! 


This is a great set up for a new series.  Abigail returns from a serial killer case thinking she is going to get engaged.  Instead it looks like she is single again.  Now looking for something to occupy her mind she accepts the opportunity to go to France to help with an international manhunt.  Holding citizenships in 3 different countries puts Adele in a unique position, with a unique perspective since she lived in all of these countries while growing up.

Adele is a complex character that I feel we are just starting to scratch the surface of.  There are glimpses of an interesting past revealed in glimpses throughout the book.  I'm very interested in learning more about her. There is a lot of potential in this new series and I can't wait to continue reading.
