broke out with an outstanding series set in her hometown of Birmingham, Alabama.
The Faces of Evil
feature a strong Special Agent–Jess Harris–who thought she left it
all behind when she left the FBI and moves back to take up a position of a new
division. But not so. The first three books have just been released at a special
price of $3.99 peach in paperback, so don't miss the chance to grab them before
the fourth installment hits at the end of April.
In OBSESSION, Special
Agent Jess Harris has spent more than a decade studying the many faces of evil.
In her determination to stop a serial killer, she broke the rules, and it cost
her everything. With her career in need of resuscitation and her love life dead
and buried, Jess jumps at a chance to advise on a case that has the top
detectives of Birmingham, Alabama, stumped. But the case forces her to confront
all the reasons she put her hometown-and her first love-in her rearview mirror.
Four young women have gone missing, and Police Chief Dan Burnett will do
anything to find them before it's too late-even if it means asking for help from
the woman who has spent a decade avoiding him. Jess agrees to lend a hand and
welcomes the diversion of a new case, a new life to save to make up for the
victims she's lost. But then the unthinkable happens: the crazed serial killer
from her past follows Jess to Birmingham. The situation is becoming increasingly
desperate-and time is swiftly running out

vengeance and he'll make Jess pay in ways she never imagined. The first victim
is Jess's friend-and the killer won't stop there. With each new death Jess
becomes more certain that the only way to stop the Player is to give him what he
really wants: her.
Chief of Police Dan Burnett is determined to give Jess
her confidence and her life back. With an offer on the table, a position as
deputy chief of a new division, can Jess risk staying in her hometown and
putting those around her in more danger? Or will she walk away to protect
everyone she loves-including Dan, who just may want her back in his arms? The
stakes are high, and a single impulse will determine who survives the Player's
final, deadly game
In the third book of Faces of Evil, Jess is

won't be able to put the past behind her that easily.
Jess has decided to
focus all of her attention on work when a celebrated ballet instructor is found
dead by one of her students. Though Jess's instincts tell her otherwise, the
death is ruled an accident, and the case is assigned to another division. Still,
Jess can't shake the feeling that there's more to the story, and her
