"Cold and Deadly kept me on the edge of my seat until the jaw-dropping end! Toni Anderson is a true master of the genre, delivering tight plotting and a sizzling, slow-burn romance that left me breathless and panting for more!”

~NYT bestselling author Annika Martin

The marvellous Toni Anderson scores again. ‘Cold & Deadly’ is the latest incarnation or rather, the first of the spin-off books of her FBI agents series, and with it comes the same fantastic, faultless type of writing that reminds me why I love romantic suspense so much.

SSA Dominic Sheridan and rookie agent Ava Kanas find themselves embroiled what apparently looked like a simple case of a retired agent committing suicide, where soon it becomes clear that someone is targeting the FBI agents

The Romance Book Disciple (Samantha)

Cold and Deadly is a spin off of Anderson's other series, which I loved! She writes great romantic suspense and yall know I love romantic suspense! Also, I am on a bit of an FBI agent kick apparently!

Dominic and Ava are both FBI agents, so the story has a touch of an office romance. They are forced to work together and endure some serious danger! Anderson writes stunning suspense and mystery and Cold and Deadly was no exception. There really isn't a good place to stop reading because its kind o

I love Toni Anderson books, they have everything I love reading about. In this book we hit the jackpot, great characters, plenty of murders and above all a couple falling love.
This starts at a funeral of a well loved FBI agent who had either committed suicide or shot himself by accident. So under the circumstances the mourners are close friends and family. Suddenly shots are fired at the FBI agents attending. This starts an investigation that leads all o

Cold & Deadly is my favorite of Toni Anderson’s recent works!

Dominic Sheridan and Ava Kanas were a dynamic pairing and a force to be reckoned with for any would-be serial killers. The story was richly layered and as usual, the author did her homework about negotiators and agents alike. The added storyline of Ava’s mysterious background kept the storyline moving when the actual police work might’ve caused the story to slow a tad. Loved seeing some old favorites from previous books!

Such a good book! This is a new author for me and I have not read the other books in her series. I did not feel as if I was missing out on anything because of it though. Also this is in 3rd person, so if that is your jam, it usually isn't mine, then I wanted to warn you. This book is really good though and I personally believe that you get more out of it being in 3rd person!

Start with seeing into the mind of a killer with no real clues of who it is, then ramping up the tension with spine-chilling suspense, Toni Andersen has done it again in Cold & Deadly (Cold Justice: Crossfire #1). The many threads of the plot are woven tightly together in this finely crafted story. The entire book is impressive but the scene in the woods near the ends is extraordinary. I couldn’t have stop reading no matter what; too much happening! Never guess who was the killer which is te ...more

Cold & Deadly combines suspense, mystery, twists and turns with two unlikely partners. The romance part started later on it was dancing around it. Dominic Sheridan and Ava Kanas met when a colleague was killed, Ava doesn't believe the cause of death and wants to prove it. Dominic didn't see eye to eye on that but when his live gets threatened and Ava is his bodyguard they make an an effort to get along. In the close proximity the tension grows, a superior agent and older one at that Dominic ...more

Ava who is a new FBI agent but knows Van someone who has been her mentor for a long time hasn't committed suicide. She KNOWS this and can't hold her tongue when she has the chance to tell her superiors. Van always told her she needed to practice tact but she hasn't quite made it there yet.

When Dominic, another FBI agent in another unit talks to her because Van used to be his mentor too he can't help but start feeling things toward her that isn't supposed to be. He's not supposed to feel anything

I love when an author doesn't waste time getting right to the action. From the first page your plopped right in the middle of the suspense and peril and it does not slow down until the last page.

The first book in the Cold Justice – Crossfire series gives us both new and previous characters from her Cold Justice series. It centers around the FBI’s Crisis Negotiation Unit. Even though the main plot of this book is serial killer who is targeting the FBI, which our hero happens to be at the top of

Toni Anderson create Hero and herons that readers can connect with, from their drive for the truth or seeking answers no one else can ask. Toni Anderson is a can't miss author!

Cold and Deadly starts off with a bang, reader reconnect with secondary characters from the other series and Mallory is finally having her baby.

The characters are smart, strong and willing to risk their life for those who are innocent.

Toni Anderson is able to combine action, characters who come alive on the pages as the w

This author has been on my tbr list a long time with this one getting to my attention. Loving shows like NCIS this one seemed to be right up my road. FBI agent special even Dominic will have his hands full with rookie Ava. They must work together to uncover a serial killer but that will not be all of course. What a thrilling and chilling beginning to a series. This will also have a bit of something to warm you up because of what they will think they need to fight but really they only need to fig ...more

Dominic is a seasoned FBI negotiator and Ava is the FBI rookie. These two had an immediate chemistry but tried to ignore it because they were working together. They are on a difficult case trying to find out who is killing fellow agents. Dominic gets very protective of Ava as their attraction continues to grow and Ava does everything she can to prove she can be a great agent.

I loved this book and the characters were great. This story was a page-turner that was full of so much suspense I could n

You know, I've yet to read a Toni Anderson book that I didn't thoroughly enjoy.  Long may that trend continue!

Once again, the author has produced an accomplished example of romantic suspense writing.  Twists and turns; tension; frustration; intimacy and a few familiar faces thrown in too.  

Each character is vividly brought to life and their interactions flow beautifully.  Pacing is great and picks up as the story reaches its conclusion, catapulting the reader right into the thick of things.

Wow, what a ride!!! Just when I thought I had it all figured out, lol.... Very intense, action-packed, suspenseful and romantic. Plot is very gripping and I was instantly drawn right into the world of Dominic & Ava aka Superman & Superwoman. Great characters, agents in different fields their mutual instant attraction puts them on even ground. I like them both, they each have a few secrets and are equally strong-willed, smart, bold & determined. Always love with the "crew" shows up, w ...more

OMG this book was so good that I couldn't put it down. I love the fact that characters from previous Cold Justice books were included. Glad you included the birth of Alex and Mallory's baby. Looking forward to more books from this new series. I have read the original cold justice series more than once and always enjoy each book. I get to know the characters as the author is very thorough in developing them. Great book.

What could be just another FBI procedural is so much more. With POVs from our H/h and others the story has so much depth. The suspense is enthralling, the mystery keeps you guessing, the romance is a slow burn. The story pacing is breakneck with just enough action and intrigue. I felt like I came to know Ava and Dominic their doubts and fears, and the way they investigate each case. Hang onto your hats this tale is one thrill ride of a read as well as a sexy heartfelt romance.

OMG I couldn't put this book down. This book had so much going on in it that I was completely engrossed. Dominic was a great character and I really enjoyed the slow building of the chemistry with Ava. Ava herself was a rookie who spoke her mind even when it didn't suit her bosses. Lots of action and some steam with some great twists in the story. Secondary characters were also great as it was wonderful to see Mallory and Alex in this story! Loved it!!!

Really enjoyed this new spin off series. Action, and adventure where Toni Anderson kept you in total suspense . It was nice to see one of our favourite couples making a crossover too. You could feel the attraction between
Dominic and Ava straightaway. Intriguing bad guys make for an interesting turn of events . Can’t wait to see who’s next .

Good start to the series

The mystery was amazing and well written. The romance between Eva and Dominic wasn’t as good as the other books by Toni. It was great to have so much of Lincoln, Mallory and Alex in the book. Their books are my favorites from the series.

Loved it! I was happy to see Linc, Alex and Mallory again... There was a bit of Equal Employment issues too. Loved the chemistry between Dominic and Ava. A good start to a new side-step series...
