There are times when you pick up a suspense novel that keeps
you so engaged
that you lose all sense of your surroundings. That is how
DON'T TALK TO
STRANGERS by Amanda Kyle Williams kept me for a day. I was
absorbed from the
start into this mystery with Keye Street, a private
detective who once was an
investigator for the FBI.
Sheriff Meltzer, from a little town called Whisper calls to
request her services. There has been two bodies found in
their woods in a
stream, a dumping ground for a serial killers and he needs
Keye agrees to help this small town sheriff find answers.
The unwelcoming small
town residents are not making it easy for her. She is an
outsider with a
reputation, and she is a woman. The sheriff's deputies feel
that she is a threat to
them one way or another. The community itself gives her a
hard time. Do they
have something to hide? To make matters worse, Keye feels an
Meltzer. He is attractive and single with a habit of
flirting with her during several
opportunities. What has she gotten herself into? She still
loves her boyfriend,
Rauser who waits for her back at home.
Someone has kidnapped two thirteen year olds. One of the
girls has been taken
within the last year and the other one ten years before.
They were held and
tortured and left at the bottom of a stream. Can Keye help
Sheriff Meltzer find
this killer before he strikes again?
Feeling that it is someone well known in
Whisper, Keye shakeups some of the locals with her
questioning. No one can
believe that one of their own can do such a thing. It had to
be an outsider in a
nearby town. Wouldn't they notice someone suspicious of
holding a teenage girl captive for so long?
If you are looking for suspense, be ready to devote hours
reading DON'T TALK TO STRANGERS before
putting it down. The ending will leave you astonished for
DON'T TALK TO STRANGERS by Amanda Kyle Williams is a must
for your bookshelf!
Hailed by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution as "one
of the most addictive new series heroines," Keye Street is
the brilliant, brash heart of a sizzling thriller full of
fear and temptation, judgments and secrets, infidelity and
He likes them smart.
In the woods of Whisper, Georgia, two bodies are found: one
recently dead, the other decayed from a decade of exposure
to the elements. The sheriff is going to need help to track
down an experienced predator — one who abducts girls and
holds them for months before ending their lives. Enter ex
–FBI profiler and private investigator Keye Street.
He lives for the struggle.
After a few weeks, Keye is finally used to sharing her
downtown Atlanta loft with her boyfriend, A.P.D. Lieutenant
Aaron Rauser. Along with their pets (his dog, her cat) they
seem almost like a family. But when Rauser plunks a few ice
cubes in a tumbler and pours a whiskey, Keye tenses. Her
addiction recovery is tenuous at best.
And loves the fear.
Though reluctant to head out into the country, Keye agrees
to assist Sheriff Ken Meltzer. Once in Whisper, where the
locals have no love for outsiders, Keye starts to piece
together a psychological profile: The killer is someone who
stalks and plans and waits. But why does the sociopath hold
the victims for so long, and what horrible things must they
endure? When a third girl goes missing, Keye races against
time to connect the scant bits of evidence. All the while,
she cannot shake the chilling feeling: Something dark and
disturbing lives in these woods — and it is watching her
