This psychological suspense follows forensic psychiatrist Kate Myers who believes the killer of two teenage girls in Bigler County, California, is the same man who savagely murdered her twin sister over fifteen years ago. Working with a single-minded tenacity, she sets out to prove it.

Deputy Sheriff Ben Slater hides his personal pain behind the job, but Kate’s arrival in his county knocks his world on its axis and makes him believe in romance again. He wants to believe her wild theory, but the idea of a serial killer with the kind of pathology she proposes is too bizarre.

Together they work to find a killer whose roots began in a small town in Bigler County, but whose violence spread across the nation. A Janus-like killer, more monster than man, he fixates on Kate and wants nothing more than to kill the “purple-eyed girl again.”

As this crime thriller builds to a conclusion, Kate finds herself in grave danger, while Slater uses his forensics skills to discover who the madman is and where he’s taken her.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I read a lot of books by lesser-known or newer authors, and it usually shows in their writing. That is NOT the case with this book. It felt like I was reading the latest thriller by a veteran of the best-sellers list. The writing was smooth, the tension was palpable.I could not put it down.

*******

This by far one of the best romantic thrillers I have read in a long time. Move over Stephen King, Jo Robertson is making her mark! It was a book I did not want to put down.

*******

I was hooked within the first few pages and was hard to put the book down. Believable characters keep you engaged and make it an easy read. Part thriller, part romance with many twists and turns. This is one book you don’t want to miss and will definitely be looking for more from this author!

*******

I loved this book! I am not generally interested in romance novels, but the chemistry between Ben and Kate was believable and did not overwhelm the suspenseful plot. It is incredibly sexy and quite smart and clever throughout. I definitely recommend this book. You will love it!

*******

I loved this book! It was thrilling and kept me on my toes the whole time. I would definitely read more by this author and planning on reading the rest of the books in this series. The author has a fantastic writing style I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys thrillers.

About The Author

Jo Robertson, a former high school English teacher, lives in northern California, near the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills. She enjoys reading, scrap booking, and discussing the latest in books, movies, and television shows. Any “spare” time she has is spent enjoying her seven children and grandchildren.

When her Advanced Placement English students challenged her to quit talking about writing and “just do it,” she wrote her first completed manuscript, “The Watcher,” which won Romance Writers of American’s Golden Heart Award for romantic suspense in 2006. The second book in the loosely-connected trilogy is “The Avenger,” which won the 2007 Daphne du Maurier Overall Award for Excellence. “The Traitor” is the third book in the series.

Jo’s books are romantic thrillers, which means they straddle the line between mainstream thriller-suspense and romance. She feels that a strong relationship in a book makes the danger more intense. Readers have commented that they especially enjoy her complex, three-dimensional villains.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Jo Robertson and ENT appreciate it.
