Author Andrew Hess captivated me from the moment I started reading this story. I loved how he moved between the heroine Ali Ryan’s point of view and the killers. Getting lost in both of their heads as they tried to outsmart one another was thrilling. This book is an absolute page turner as Ali Ryan chase after the killer. I could not help but gasp and hold my breath during a few of the scenes. ~Sarah Reads
I love reading different genres of books but very rarely do I read a good crime mystery, until now…. It reminded me of watching CSI or NCIS. It kept me on the edge of my seat and had me shouting at some of the scenes in the book. ~Linda Luscious Literature
Ends like a Hitchcock movie. Excellent plot and development of characters; mystery and suspense unpredictable and engaging. ~Dee Archer
I admit that I haven’t read a lot of crime thriller, but if they were all like this one, I think I’d read more. ~Toinette Thomas

Q and A With Author Andrew Hess
When did you know you wanted to write books?
I always had a fascination with writing, but didn’t really give it serious thought until the 2004-2005 school year. I was in college and was taking a literary course. That’s when the idea for my first novel took form and decided I wanted to be an author. The next semester I took a creative writing course and showed my professor some of my poetry and chapters for my books. He thought they were good but would need a lot of work. He saw potential in me, and that solidified my desire to become an author.
