A new threat has descended upon Arlington, and lead medial examiner Avery Johnson is in its sights, being targeted by the city’s latest serial killing menace known to the public as the Alpha Killer.
Whether urban legend or reality, the Alpha feeds into the media craze, orchestrating a killing spree to stamp out all rivals. And when Avery’s tangled web of deception pulls her further into to Alpha’s sadistic game, there’s only one thing she fears more: losing Quinn. With just as many secrets to guard as the elusive crime lord, Avery’s time is running out to reveal the truth to Quinn, the stubborn, by-the-book detective bent on protecting her at all costs.
As a lead takes the ACPD task force deep into the bowels of a corrupt law firm, the discovery of a vast criminal network with far-reaching connections threatens to unmask many players. How deep does the corruption go? How far does the Alpha’s reach extend? While the team races to catch a killer, Detective Quinn is tasked with an impossible choice. Will he betray the woman he’s fallen for, or seek his own vengeance outside of the law?
Review:I almost just made this entire review "There are no words. Just read it." Because once again, the exquisite Miss Trisha Wolfe has left me at a loss for words once I've closed one of her books.
The second that I finished this book I wanted to be back in that world with the characters. I didn't want to leave them. In all honesty, it took me much longer than I would have liked to finish this book. Not because I wasn't enjoying, just because of some personal things. I read the last 40% or so of it in one day. I needed to know what happened.
I loved seeing characters from other books pop up in this one. Especially Sadie who will always be a favorite of mine. Seeing characters from Derision was super exciting!! Avery and Quinn grew on me even more as I read and I was routing for them to be together. I liked Avery in With Visions of Red but never considered her that much. Quinn was a character that I always wanted to see more of, though, so I'm glad that we have.
The Alpha is so mysterious and deadly. Yet somehow also refined. And, as usual, Trisha brings a beauty and elegance to the darkness. I still have no clue who the Alpha is although I've formulated some theories along the way. None of which I think are right.
I adored this book. I adore these characters. I can't wait for book three. Tension, passion, light, beauty, darkness, grey, blurring the lines. All of the things that I love. Strung together with magnificent words to help play out the book in my head as I read it on the page. Is it any wonder that Trisha Wolfe is my favorite Indie author? 5 quills!!
