On her first assignment since her promotion to SSA status in the Serial Crimes Unit of the FBI, Jade Monroe and her new partner, Lorenzo DeLeon, are tasked to southern Louisiana, where disturbing discoveries have been made. Human bones have been found in numerous sites deep in bayou country, and the locals aren't too excited about having outsiders poking around in their business.

When Jade has a chance meeting with a local hunter, she finds his assistance exactly what she needs to break through that unwelcoming barrier. She brings him on board as their go-between.
The hunter inserts himself into their investigation and gains Jade's trust, but is he authentic, or does he have his own agenda?

A bone-chilling blindside and a dangerous chase through the Louisiana swamps is just the beginning, but the question remains—is Jade the hunter, or is she the one being hunted?

  • Exciting

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I could not wait for the ending. It did have to much info on the names of the people who are irrelevant in this story (like at the wedding) but I couldn't wait to see who the killer was. Great read!

    Just waiting for that jerk Robbie to get caught.I loved the ending. Sally so brave. Only the one character I hated… that killer. He is insane. To be sure. No more now though❗️❗️❗️I recommend Sutter stories. I enjoyed what I had read before of his writing. Awesome‼️❗️

    Great story line. Kept my attention and wanted to keep reading!
  • Things difficult to believe

    It really bothered me that Jade was foolish enough to hop in a car with a complete stranger while investigating abductions. It just doesn’t add up for a supposedly crack agent to take that kind of chance. Duckbills

    This was a very exciting book to read. The author did a great job to hold your interest in the story. I am looking forward to reading the other books.
  • It was good until it wasn’t

    I like the idea of a female FBI agent. Though after the beginning of the story, it seemed like the author went off of what tv shows and movies do for police investigations, rather than doing actual research. And this lack of intelligent thought from the main character really turned me off the story.
