Written by J.A. Schneider
Category: · Mystery & Suspense

A serial killer texts his victims first – but how does he get their phone numbers? A detective vows revenge. He comes after her.

In the chill of an October night, Detective Kerri Blasco is called to a bizarre murder scene. Leda Winfield, a young volunteer for the homeless, has been shot. Her cell phone displays the frightening text, WATCHING YOU, and into her back, hideously pushed with a hat pin, is a note with the same awful message. Leda’s socialite family and friends insist that no one would have wanted to harm her, but Detective Kerri isn’t convinced.

Until another random young woman is killed in exactly the same way. Kerri and her team profile a monstrous killer who enjoys terrifying his victims before stalking and killing them.

Soon Kerri finds that the killer is after her, too, and that the key to finding him may just be in the homeless shelter. When the body count rises, she vows to stop the madman – even if it means battling her own personal trauma, risking her job, her love relationship with her boss Alex Brand, and her life.


“Wow, another gripping, fast paced thriller. Emotionally intense, ingenious in concept, an expertly woven plot, and an ending that left me gasping. Highly recommended!” Literati Literature Lovers

“Though third in the series, this book can be read as a superb standalone. The plot is brilliant; also the terrifying concept – a killer cyber-stalking people via their phones! On a more comforting note I just love Kerri, haunted by her painful past and hiding her secret love with the equally likable Alex. The whole book is well thought out, nonstop with twists and turns. I was left open-mouthed when the killer’s identity was finally revealed. This is another totally gripping, chilling, fast-paced thriller and a fantastic addition to the series. I really enjoyed it and am already looking forward to the next one!” Relax and Read Book Reviews

“WOWSERS, this series just gets better and better. I loved the first two but OMG, this has one seriously cold and twisted killer stalking a detective who’s vowed revenge. What a fast-paced, gripping story with descriptions that made me squirm…I freaking loved it. 5 massive stars!” Chelle’s Book Reviews

“Ingenious and frightening because the killer’s methods are so plausible. The most innocent and unaware are vulnerable. Previous Detective Kerri Blasco books are Fear Dreams and Her Last Breath. All are highly recommended. Five stars! Goodreads reviewer
