It was Beth Katz’s serial killer father who made her like she is: a successful FBI agent and an unstoppable vigilante dedicated to hunting down murderers who have evaded capture. Beth will push herself to the limits to deliver justice. Even if it means killing those who deserve to die.

When the body of missing schoolgirl Brooklyn Daniels is discovered in a secluded patch of woodland on the outskirts of town, Beth and her partner Dax Styles race to the scene. Brooklyn and her best friend left home to pick wildflowers a week ago and vanished without trace.

Taking in Brooklyn’s body carefully laid on a blanket and the dress neatly folded next to her, Beth suddenly freezes. She’s seen this before: in the files of a cold case. The perpetrator takes two girls—one vanishes, the other is killed and left with her clothes beside her. Now Beth knows she has a twisted serial killer on her hands, she’ll stop at nothing to catch him. Even if it means going against Dax’s orders…

Desperate to find the other missing girl, Beth’s heart pounds as she puts herself up as bait and walks into the secluded forest, knowing evil is lurking nearby. With Dax watching her every move, Beth prays the gamble pays off. Can she outsmart the murderer, or did she just walk into a trap? And when Beth finally comes face to face with the killer, will she hand him over or serve justice of her very own?


I received a free copy of this book from Bookouture through I am leaving this review voluntarily.

This book is currently free on kindle unlimited

Beth is an FBI agent.  She is also a serial killer known as the Tarot Card Killer.  Beth's father was a serial killer and awoke the dark side of her when he killed her mother, the difference is that Beth only kills other serial killers and other murders.  

Due to a psych eval after a case Beth is sent to more secluded spot where she partners up with a man who also bends the law, just not as much as Beth. Together they stumble upon a case where the killer takes two girls, kills one and the other seems to disappear.  

This is an interesting story that reminds me a bit of Candice Fox's Archer and Bennet series and also a bit of Dexter. The concept of a serial killer also being a law enforcement agent is not new but this was done well. I liked how Beth has to constantly hold her other side back and secret it away from her partner.  She isn't quite as controlled as she thinks she is.  Not only does the mystery pull you along but so does the question of will she be caught and what will her partner do if he finds out? Will she kill him? Will he turn her in? 

I just discovered that the 2nd book in this series is being released not the same day as this one.  It will also be available free on kindle unlimited.
