A Thriller Award nominee for Best eBook Original Novel… Book 1 in award-winning author Alexandra Sokoloff’s riveting new Huntress FBI series about a driven FBI agent on the hunt for that most rare of all killers: a female serial.
FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is closing in on a bust of a major criminal organization in San Francisco when he witnesses an undercover member of his team killed right in front of him on a busy street, an accident Roarke can’t believe is coincidental. His suspicions put him on the trail of a mysterious young woman who appears to have been present at each scene of a years-long string of “accidents” and murders, and who may well be that most rare of killers: a female serial.
Roarke’s hunt for her takes him across three states…while in a small coastal town, a young father and his five-year old son, both wounded from a recent divorce, encounter a lost and compelling young woman on the beach and strike up an unlikely friendship without realizing how deadly she may be.
As Roarke uncovers the shocking truth of her background, he realizes she is on a mission of her own, and must race to capture her before more blood is shed.
Huntress Moon is an entertaining thriller that keeps the reader wanting more. Special Agent Roarke witnesses his informer’s murder and sees a mysterious woman leave the scene. Having been transferred from the Behavior Analysis Unit, he can’t help the feeling he has that she is somehow involved. After looking into other incidents, he finds that a woman matching her description is wanted for questioning in a few other cases.
The clues and facts surrounding the mystery within this story is trickled bit by bit to the reader. Not everything is just thrown together at the end to wrap up that part of the story. I really enjoyed the focus on the investigation and profiling. This book read like a favorite crime show and is suspenseful and intriguing.
Book II in the Thriller Award-nominated Huntress/FBI series
Twenty-five years have passed since a savage killer terrorized California, massacring three ordinary families before disappearing without a trace.
The haunted child who was the only surviving victim of his rampage is now wanted by the FBI for brutal crimes of her own, and Special Agent Matthew Roarke is on an interstate manhunt for her, despite his conflicted sympathies for her history and motives.
But when his search for her unearths evidence of new family slayings, the dangerous woman Roarke seeks – and wants – may be his only hope of preventing another bloodbath.
As the second book in The Huntress/FBI Thrillers Series, I HIGHLY recommend that you read the first book before this one. Special Agent Roarke is trying to find the only living victim of a family slaying. She was only five years old when the rest of her family was brutally murdered and now she is suspected of being the target of the same murderer 25 years later. We learn a lot more about Cara and what is going on in her mind. There is another killer on the loose that is exploiting women and girls for the pleasure of other men. I have chills just thinking of that part of the story. There are many revolting and disgusting things thing that take place within this book, but it is all part of the plot and investigation. The way the author weaves the clues and details, the reader can’t help but be curious about how it will all end. I felt like I was part of the team investigating and that I have a hand in the resolution! Kudos to the author for that!
I can’t wait to see where the third book takes us. If it is as good as the first two, I know I won’t be disappointed.
The hunt for mass murderer Cara Lindstrom is over. FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke has been working for this moment: the capture of a killer who savagely hunts the worst of humanity. But Roarke remains traumatized by his own near-death at the hands of the serial killer who slaughtered Cara’s family…and haunted by the enigmatic woman who saved his life.
Then the sixteen-year-old prostitute who witnessed Cara’s most recent murder goes missing, and suddenly pimps are turning up dead on the streets of San Francisco, killed with an MO eerily similar to Cara’s handiwork.
Is a new killer on the loose with a mission even more deadly than hers? In the pulse-pounding third Huntress/FBI Thrillers book, Roarke will have to go on the hunt…and every woman he meets, even those closest to him, may prove deadly.
Special Agent Matt Roarke finally has mas murder Cara behind bars. But, he is conflicted when other men end up brutally murdered while she is sitting in her cell. He is also haunted by his near death at the hands of the murderer who killed Cara’s family 25 years ago. Roarke feels connected to Cara because of that and can’t help but feel sorry for all she has been through.
Just when I thought the story would wrap up, the author keeps the momentum going by not allowing the case to be solved. Roarke can’t let go, and I understand the mental struggle he goes through because he doesn’t believe it’s over. There are so many twists and turns within the story that just when I thought things were wrapping up, something else caused it not to. I am fascinated and intrigued by all of the layers in the story telling and the author’s ability to tell a story so complex and suspenseful. As my favorite of the series, this is a solid 5 star rating for me.
