In this exhilarating thriller inspired by real-life serial killer Ted Bundy, FBI profiler Caitlin Hendrix faces off against a charming, merciless serial killer.

In southern Texas, on Saturday nights, women are disappearing. One vanishes from a movie theater. Another, from her car at a stoplight. A mother is ripped from her home while checking on her baby. Rookie FBI agent Caitlin Hendrix, newly assigned to the FBI's elite Behavioral Analysis Unit, fears that a serial killer is roaming the dark roads outside Austin.

Caitlin's unit discovers the first victim's body in the woods, laid out in a bloodstained white baby-doll nightgown. A second victim in a white nightie lies deeper in the forest's darkness. Around the bodies, Polaroid photos are stuck in the earth like headstones, picturing other women with their wrists slashed. The women in the woods are not the killer's first victims, nor are they likely to be his last.

To track the UNSUB, Caitlin must get inside his mind; he is a confident, meticulous killer, capable of charming his victims until their guard is down, snatching them in plain sight. He then plays out a twisted fantasy--turning them into dolls for him to possess, control, and ultimately destroy. Caitlin's profile leads the FBI to focus on one man: a charismatic, successful professional who easily gains people's trust. But can they apprehend him before it's too late? As Saturday night approaches, Caitlin and the FBI enter a desperate game of cat and mouse, racing to capture the cunning predator before he claims his next victim.

When a local corrections officer is sent to a fiery death during the St. Patrick's Day parade, part-time reporter (and sometimes sleuth) Lucy Stone is tasked with clearing the name of her professional rival in New York Times bestselling author Leslie Meier's latest mystery set in Tinker's Cove, Maine!

Lucy Stone's late-winter blues usually vanish by the time Tinker's Cove goes green for its annual St. Patrick's Day celebration. There's just one wee problem that not even the luck of the Irish can fix--murder...

After returning from her father-in-law's funeral in Florida, Lucy can almost hear the death knell of her part-time reporter job. The Pennysaver's new hire, Rob Callahan, is young, ambitious, and positioning himself to become their next star. Adding insult to injury, Lucy only gets assigned the local St. Patrick's Day parade after Rob passes on the story. But before beer flows and bagpipes sound, Rob is suspected of destroying more than other people's careers...

It's a shock when Rob is charged with sending a corrections officer from town to a fiery death. Yet despite the evidence, Lucy doubts he's guilty, and she's willing to follow that hunch into the darkest corners of the community. An unnerving mystery unfolds, and a strange woman reveals news that could change everything for Lucy and her family. As the personal and professional collide, Lucy realizes she'll sooner discover a four-leaf clover than confront a killer with the gift of the gab and live to tell about it...
