Alexa Chase, 34, a brilliant profiler in the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit, was too good at her job. Haunted by all the serial killers she caught, she left a stunning career behind to join the U.S. Marshals. As a Deputy Marshal, Alexa—fit, and as tough as she is brilliant—could immerse herself in a simple career of hunting down fugitives and bringing them to justice.

“This is an excellent book… When you start reading, be sure you don’t have to wake up early!”

THE KILLING TIDE (An Alexa Chase Suspense Thriller—Book 2) is book #2 in a new series by mystery and suspense author Kate Bold, which begins with THE KILLING GAME (Book #1).

With Alexa’s last case a big success, the FBI and the Marshals have decided to make their joint-task force permanent. Alexa, reeling from her own traumatic past and her PTSD of hunting serial killers, has no choice: she will now have to work with an FBI partner she dislikes and hunt down serial killers whose jurisdiction intertwines with that of the U.S. Marshals. Alexa finds herself forced to confront the thing she dreads the most—entering a killer’s mind. 
Two federal judges are murdered, and startling evidence points to the work of a serial killer with a vendetta. But the judges have tried and convicted hundreds of people over their long careers, and with the suspect list a mile long, Alexa is in the race of her life to find the killer before he kills another judge on his list.

And when the next victim offers a shocking twist, it throws everything Alexa thought she knew into doubt.

Is this truly a vendetta? Or is this killer far more diabolical than he seems?

To find this diabolical killer, Alexa will have to do what she fears most—enter his twisted mind, before he can strike again. It’s a life-and-death game of cat and mouse, and it’s winner takes all. But will the darkness swallow her whole?

A page-turning and harrowing crime thriller featuring a brilliant and tortured Deputy Marshal, the ALEXA CHASE series is a riveting mystery, packed with non-stop action, suspense, twists and turns, revelations, and driven by a breakneck pace that will keep you flipping pages late into the night.

Books #3-#6 in the series—THE KILLING HOUR, THE KILLING POINT, THE KILLING FOG, and THE KILLING PLACE—are also available.

    By Carol Leon
    I love this series and look forward to reading the next book!
  • Exciting till the end

    By DarciFrog
    This is a great read. I like how there are chapters from the killers point of view. Keeps u guessing till the end. This is a book I definitely would recommend to others.
  • Good read

    By csdenn1010
    So many dead ends. Each dead end came and went quickly, then the finale jumped up and the finish was a blur. The final chapters were a teaser for the next book. I will buy the next one and am hoping it will have less obvious dead ends and a bit more build toward the finish.
  • Great series, annoying typos

    By Melina Wiltgen
    I love this series so much but all the typos really mess up the flow sometimes which is a bit disappointing. Still, a really good series so far. Onto the next book!
