Detective September "Nine" Rafferty seems to be in the
crosshairs of a serial killer who leaves a message on the
victims' bodies. One of September's grade school art
projects was sent to her with the same message scrawled
across it in blood. How did the killer get it? What is his
connection to September? Is she his next target? To answer
these questions and find the killer before he strikes again,
September will have to dig in to her past to find all
The first connection is to Jake Westerly, a friend of one of
the victims and September's old classmate, a boy who broke
her heart. Jake insists he's innocent and September
believes him. She'll need to prove it to a team that thinks
he should be a prime suspect. She'll also need to figure out
how to keep her feelings out of it, even though she still
finds him distractingly attractive.
NOWHERE TO HIDE is a tension inducing thriller with just the
right element of romance. Picking up some of the threads
left hanging in Nowhere To Run, this companion book
further develops the serial killer plot as well as the story
of the Rafferty family. I find the Rafferty family
intriguing and complex, and want to know more about what
makes them tick. The villain radiates evil which always
makes for a good read. I found myself missing some of the
personality quirks from the first book and found this story
a little flat in comparison. Still, NOWHERE TO HIDE will
keep fans of romantic suspense on the edge of their seats.
