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?

  • Blood in the Bayou

    Very good and frightening mystery for sure, however, our FBI would never be so stupid to talk so openly to someone they didn’t do a complete background check on….that drove me crazy.

    Couldn’t stop reading, kept me on the edge of my seat
  • Stupid

    By Amigo73
    I hate when the female lead character is stupid, and this SSA is the worst. Add the pretty stupid plot and dialogue and there’s only one conclusion. Don’t waste your time on this book. It’s an insult to Louisiana and the FBI.
