Ashley Hope is an average Southern woman, happily engaged, her whole life ahead of her—until dark secrets from her past come bubbling up. She soon finds herself in a race against time to save herself—and her marriage—from her ex-husband turned serial killer, who will stop at nothing until he has her back.

“Phenomenal debut with a huge creep factor… So many twists and turns, you’ll have no idea who the next victim will be. If you love a thriller that will keep you awake well into the night, this book is for you.”
—Reader review for Let Me Go

Ashley has spent years trying to forget her past and the poverty-wracked childhood she escaped from. Her life is finally perfectly normal—and she’s worked hard to make it that way. Her new husband is wealthy and handsome. Their suburban house is a total dream. And with her master’s in criminal justice almost complete, Ashley is ready to move on with her life, confident that her secrets are buried for good.

But on a trip to her rural hometown, old tensions suddenly threaten to boil over. Her Polo-wearing husband sticks out dangerously among the hardened folk of Grundy County. And when the visit goes horribly awry, Ashley, handed shocking news, realizes the past has a stubborn way of coming back.

As Ashley’s carefully constructed life begins to splinter around her, she finds herself in a fight for her life, drawn deeper into a dangerous game of cat and mouse. This killer knows her better than anyone—and he’ll stop at nothing, murder included, to get her where he wants her.

Will her past finally claim her for good?

A dark crime thriller full of mystery and suspense, the ASHLEY HOPE mystery series is rife with twists and jaw-dropping secrets as it unfolds into a riveting psychological thriller. Join this brilliant new female protagonist as she hunts down a serial killer, keeping you spellbound and turning pages late into the night. Fans of Rachel Caine, Teresa Driscoll and Robert Dugoni are sure to fall in love.

  • Would pass

    By Not tech friendly
    It was a ok read. It would get interesting and then not. One major thing happened towards the end of the book with her brother and it was never addressed. And what she did at the end was just stupid if this was really the strongest guy in the world power. She would have done something more clever.
  • Captivating

    By max hinzman
    Very suspenseful to the point it was stressful. Scary at times. Was glad when I was finished haha
  • No opinion.

    By Swan rock
    Well written but I think has too many killings and violence. Time to stop pushing so much violence and return to stories where if there has to be murder just one is more than enough. We wonder why there is so much violence but that is all we push.
  • Good story
