Carla Cassidy is a talented author. So far I haven’t read a book that she has written that I didn’t enjoy.

In this story several women from Black Rock have disappeared without a trace. Sheriff Tom Grayson, and his brothers can’t come up with any leads, or reasons why anyone would want to hurt the young ladies that has disappeared.

Layla was almost the serial killers next victim. She had gotten off work late, and just sat down in her car, when someone attempted to choke her. She hit him with her

This book is Jacob Grayson's story. Jacob is a FBI agent with a case of severe burnout. He has lost his confidence and has isolated himself from his family and friends. The case that has caused him to retreat into himself was a multiple homicide.

The "unsub" calls himself The Professional.

Jacob has returned home to Black Rock, KS but The Professional has followed him home. The Professional has kidnapped Jacob's sister, Brittany and three other young women. His fifth and final target is the woman

Nothing worth reading
I loved the romance between Layla and Jacob, they felt right together.. she's fun, he's dour.. at in the end, he's the one who lets her know she's worth it! That was sweet.

I also enjoyed the suspense. The Professional was a good villain but why it had to be Layla and no one else was never explained unless I missed that.

Also, on the way to the cabin, wouldn't Jacob have run into the Professional's vehicle when he went back to the ranch? How many roads were there out of that remote cabin? Obviousl

Good Read

This last story in the series was as good as the very first I held my breath waiting to see who would be the bad guy and was totally surprised.

This book was pretty good. I really like the heroine. Her character was strong and delightful. She never let anything get the best of her. The story line was exciting yet quite typical for this style. The Hero was the stock damaged lawman. The heroine makes the book good.

Another good read from Ms. Cassidy. She knows how to deliver a suspenseful story for any age. I have read all of Ms. Cassidy's books, YA, Intrigues, Romantic Suspense and Mainstream. She never disappoints.
