Evelyn Talbot knows that a psychopath can look perfectly normal. She was only sixteen when her own boyfriend Jasper imprisoned and tortured her―and left her for dead. Now an eminent psychiatrist who specializes in the criminal mind, Evelyn is the force behind Hanover House, a maximum-security facility located in a small Alaskan town. Her job puts her at odds with Sergeant Amorak, who is convinced that Hanover is a threat to his community…even as his attraction to beautiful Evelyn threatens to tear his world apart.
BEGINS WITH AN ESCAPE FROM HER PAST
Then, just as the bitter Alaskan winter cuts both town and prison off from the outside world, the mutilated body of a local woman turns up. For Amorak, this is the final proof he needs: Hanover has to go. Evelyn, though, has reason to fear that the crime is a personal message to her―the first sign that the killer who haunts her dreams has found her again. . .and that the life she has so carefully rebuilt will never be the same….
This series is very dark and not so much a love story as maybe the very beginning of one. And not an auspicious beginning at that. This is the second book in this series and if you like dark and twisted fiction then this is your series. If you are fascinated by serial killers then this is your series. If murder and mayhem is not your cup of tea this probably won't do it for you. I picked up this series because though I am intrigued with reading about series killers I prefer fictional ones not reading about true crime history of the real ones.
Sergeant Amarok and Evelyn have to find the serial that is hunting in their town. Evelyn thinks it is Jasper and that he is tormenting her. Amarok is not so sure he just know that Hanover House brought this to his town. Things are not always what they seem in this story and not all the killers are locked up or who you think they are. Evelyn has to learn this lesson the hard way. But this book does have not so much a HEA but a hopeful for now.
I give this book 4 stars and I bought it with my own hard earned money.
