*** BOOK BLURB ***
Still haunted by his wife’s murder—and stained by the blood of avenging it—FBI special agent Hatcher McGee can’t believe he’s being teamed up with rookie agent Korine Davenport. She is his most guilty secret—the one-night stand who almost cost him everything.
Korine has her own demons. As a child, she witnessed her father’s murder, and she’s spent her life waiting for the killer’s return. She and Hatcher are both looking for closure, but the disturbing case that draws them together could be their last.
When the mutilated body of a corrupt Savannah judge surfaces, Hatcher and Korine find themselves on the trail of a vigilante who is showing no mercy. Not for the predators who’ve gone free. And not for anyone who gets in the way.
As the body count rises, and as Hatcher’s and Korine’s own pasts unfold, they must risk their lives tracking a killer they’ve come to understand all too well. After all, the ends justify the means.
*** REVIEW ***
Pretty Little Killers is in a most part a police procedural novel just with a bit of steamy romance. It's full of unexpected twists and turns that make it hard to figure out who is the real killer.
For a Romantic Suspense genre, it lacked the actual "romance". Characters seemed more suffering from lust and wanting to hop into bed than developing some real feelings.
Both main characters have an interesting and complex backstories that meshed with the overall story. The setting goes hand in hand with the plot and is the superb backdrop to a thrilling crime novel.
