But with Malloy’s help, Sarah begins a dangerous quest to bring the killer to justice—before death claims another victim...

    I enjoyed your book. I wanted to find out who did it. I had figured some of it but was surprised at the complete ending.

    I look for free ebooks and rarely purchase one. However, after reading the first book in this series, I purchased the remaining books and read them in quick succession. I couldn't read them fast enough and yet didn't want to be finished with them either. I love this series! I would say more, but I don't want to give anything away!
