Laney Knox is a 24 year old beautiful young woman who is a
computer genius. She works for a company called The Delphi
Center that performs all sorts of professional technological
services for anyone who needs them. This includes the
police, FBI and other law enforcement agencies. They also
run security checks for online companies such as dating
websites to make sure that the sites cannot be hacked.
Laney loves her job. But there is something in Laney's past
that has turned her into a workaholic as well as someone
with a rather unexciting social life. One night three years
ago, Laney was attacked by a man who let himself into her
house and meant to kill her. She managed to fight back and
elude him long enough to escape with her life. The man was
never caught and that is something that Laney never forgets.
Always looking over her shoulder, she has a high quality
alarm system installed in her house. Her life suits her and
the last thing she is looking for is romance.
Detective Reed Novak has seen plenty of horrific crimes in
his line of work. At age 39, he is divorced and starting to
develop some grey streaks in his hair. There is something
about the murder of Amber Abrams that tells him something
really serious is going on here and that things are only
going to get worse.
When it comes to light that Amber was on a dating website,
Reed crosses paths with Laney. Her attack has many of the
same elements as Amber's murder and she wants to make sure
that the predator is caught. What Laney and Reed do not
count on is the instantaneous heat that flares between them.
Laney is fine with a fling situation but Reed is too aware
of their age difference to make any moves in that direction.
While they are still trying to figure out where they are
going personally, there are more murders to investigate.
Reed does not want Laney anywhere near this case but she
knows that she is the only one with the skills and
information to point the police in the right direction. The
problem is whether or not she will live to expose the
murderer because he is closer than she thinks.

miss these booksâ€ť (RT Book Reviews)! The tenth novel
in the New York Times bestselling Tracers series is a
gripping romantic thriller from the author who â€śnever fails
to put me on the edge of my seatâ€ť (USA TODAY).
The moment detective Reed Novak steps onto the crime scene,
he knows the case is going to rock his world. A beautiful
young woman murdered at home. No sign of forced entry. No
motive. Sheâ€™s obviously not the killerâ€™s first victim, and
Reedâ€™s instincts tell him she wonâ€™t be his last. Reedâ€™s
first clue comes via a mysterious text that links to a
dating profile, but even more intriguing than the clue is
the person who sent it.
As a white-hat hacker in the Delphi Centerâ€™s cyber
investigation unit, Laney Knox sneaks into some of the
deepest, darkest corners of the Internet looking for
predators. Laney would prefer to stay away from Austin PDâ€™s
most recent murder case, but she canâ€™t ignore the chilling
similarities between that crime and her own brutal attack
years ago. Laney offers to help the sexy lead detective, but
he wants more from her than just a promising tipâ€”Reed wants
her trust. Laney resists, but as their relationship deepens
sheâ€™s tempted to reveal the closely guarded secrets that
could make her a key witnessâ€¦or the killerâ€™s next victim.
