In this thrilling suspense novel, Madison Knight is a detective who arrives on a murder scene of the man who killed her grandfather. Madison carries many different emotions to this scene, as she feels justice for her grandfather but also fearful that this murder scene is too familiar. This gruesome scene resembles the work of a Russian hit-man by the name of Constantine, whom she knows very well. Constantine tried to kill her ten months prior and Madison has been trying to recover from the incident since. She soon finds a note on her car threatening her loved ones and to finish what he started. Thus beginning an exhilarating and hair-raising mystery!
This book is part of a series, so I did feel a little lost at first. I had a difficult time feeling connected to the story but by chapter 3, I was hooked! Madison’s character is realistic and goes through the effects of trauma that a real human would go through after being almost murdered and threatened. She is emotionally invested in this mystery and that’s what draws you into the action taking place. If you are a reader of thrillers, then you will love this book! It will keep you on your toes and draw you in! This book has great balance of thrill and love, making it even more interesting. Madison’s drive to solve the case and save her loved ones is riveting.
This is a great read for this winter season! Make yourself a cup of hot mocha and cuddle up in your favorite blanket by the fire and enjoy a good mystery thriller!
One hit man who’s back for revenge.
One detective who’s not going down without a fight.
It’s been ten months since Detective Madison Knight almost died at the hands of Russian Mafia hit man Constantine Romanov. She hasn’t seen hide nor hair of him since he escaped police custody and fled to Russia soon after his arrest, except now her latest murder investigation gives her reason to believe he’s back in town. Seeing as the victim is the man who killed her grandfather, her perspective may be a little skewed, but with the MO smacking of Constantine and the victim’s connections to the mob, she finds it hard to be objective. Still, she’s doing her best to consider all the evidence.
When she receives a threatening letter from Constantine, however, her suspicions are confirmed. And he’s made it abundantly clear that not only does he plan to finish what he started but he has her family and loved ones in the crosshairs, too. Madison vows to do whatever it takes to save them, but as the hours race by, the body count rises. And the stakes only get higher when Madison’s sister, Chelsea, goes missing.
Now, Madison’s only play is to take Chelsea’s disappearance for what it really means: Constantine is calling Madison out for one final showdown. And they won’t both survive…
