“This is an excellent book… When you start reading, be sure you don’t have to wake up early!”
—Reader review for The Killing Game

The Killing Fog (An Alexa Chase Suspense Thriller—Book 5) is book #5 in a new series by mystery and suspense author Kate Bold, which begins with THE KILLING GAME (Book #1).

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.

But with her recent work 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. 
Butting heads with local authorities and with a third partner, Alexa is out of her depth and up against a range of obstacles in a foreign country—all while a diabolical killer is gaining steam. In her toughest case yet, Alexa will need all the strength of her brilliant mind to discover where the killer is hiding—and to bring him to justice before he strikes again.

Unless he finds her first.

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.

Book #6—THE KILLING PLACE—is also available.

    This is a great series and really holds your interest. Love the Alexis Chase character and can’t wait to see what happens next. 4 stars because of the amount of typos ….who is proofreading this stuff? I certainly hope the hard copy doesn’t have this many typos.
