From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author L.P. Dover comes the crossover fans having been waiting for! Beloved characters from her Armed & Dangerous and Circle of Justice novels come together in this tantalizing new series!
A stranger waiting in the dark.
A ritualistic attack.
A wrongful arrest.
After surviving an attempt on her life, Kennedy moved to Vermont in hopes of putting the nightmare behind her. The police assured her the assailant was behind bars. They were dead wrong. The truth revealed itself in a rash of grisly murders. Each victim bore a striking resemblance to Kennedy. Each killed in the same fashion as her attack.
Launching a full-fledged manhunt, the police called me in. My name is Reed Chandler, and Iâm an expert on tracking the behavior of the deranged. It doesnât take long for me to realize it all traces back to Kennedy. The killings are carving a path across the country, leading straight to her.
Determined to keep her safe, I refuse to leave her side. Am I getting too close? Losing myself in the alluring charms of the school teacher? I donât care. Iâll do whatever it takes to protect her. Let the killer come. The tables have turned, I know his plan.
What he doesnât know is that Iâm a trained killer... and now Iâm on the hunt.

Her eyes blazed with anger. âWhy didnât John tell me this could be done?â
âBecause he doesnât know,â I answered. âNot many people do. We use special government technology. With only a handful of people knowing how to access the satellites. Even so, we canât figure out every single murder case. Thereâs just not enough time in the world. Itâs important we keep this knowledge contained otherwise it could be used against us.â
She scoffed. âSo what youâre saying is that in order to get the special treatment, I have to be someone high up? Like the president or someone with a butt ton of money?â Her hand shook and I could see the rage behind those hazel eyes of hers.
All in all, she was right, but I couldnât tell her that. But mostly it was because of the safety issues of this type of technology getting into the wrong hands. âThatâs not what Iâm saying, Kennedy,â I said, hoping to deflect her anger and not sounding like Iâm appeasing her. âIâm sorry this happened to you, but Iâm here to help. Even looking at the satellites doesnât guarantee weâll find the killer. It takes a lot of calculated guesses and thatâs where I come in. I go with my gut.â
She blew out a frustrated breath and her eyes softened. âIâm sorry. I wish you knew how hard this was for me.â I understood what she was going through as Iâd seen it time and time again. Being a victim, and trying hard not to be one is exhausting and I could see it was taking its toll on her.
I placed a hand over hers, and something about it felt right. âWeâre going to find that piece of shit, I promise. Once my package gets delivered today, Iâll set up the cameras around your property so we can keep an eye on everything while weâre gone. And as soon as we get to Wyoming, Iâll use every single resource I have to figure this all out.â
Standing up straighter, she lifted her chin and nodded. âGood. And I want to be right there to help you.â
She looked at me expectantly and I narrowed my gaze, wondering what she had on her mind. I already knew it was something she wanted to keep from John. Didnât know if that was a good or bad thing, but I had a feeling it was the latter. âYeah, about that. What do you want exactly?â I asked.
Her eyes darkened. âIâm not waiting for that psycho to hunt me down again. I want you to teach me how to kill. That way, the next time I see him, heâll be on the receiving end and not the other way around.â She looked down at the river, her body tense. âI want to look him in the eyes when I kill him. Youâre the only one who can help me get away with it.â
Yep, it was definitely the latter. I stared at her in disbelief, but also in complete awe. I could get into some serious trouble for helping her. Was it good to give in to revenge? No, but in her case, Iâd be the same way if someone killed my mother. She deserved to get her revenge and the killer deserved everything she could dish out and then some.
If it was anyone but Kennedy, I wouldnât do it. But for her, it would mean closure â I could see that now.
The decision was made.
