"Another tantalizing continuation of the mystery series surrounding the lives of Private Investigators Sam and Amelia Slater. This book was sultry, captivating, and impossible to put down. In this suspenseful story, a wealthy damsel named Helen Latos has been receiving threatening messages from an anonymous harasser in regards to her affair with a married man. The messages contain quotes of Bible verses that state that adulterers shall be put to death. Seeing as she herself is married also, the messages leaves Helen feeling like her life is in danger just as much as her secret lover.

Frightened and vulnerable, Helen comes to Sam and Amelia for help, but something about her demeanor puts Amelia off. Despite her situation she is clearly attracted to Sam, and obviously has no problem seducing married men -- but ultimately her plea for help as well as her offer to pay double for their services wins them over and they decide to take her offer. As they begin working on her case, the messages get more personal and include information about the affair that only someone that is close to the situation could know about, which complicates things further. Could the person who is sending these messages be someone that Helen trusts? 

As all of this is taking place, the man who previously stalked and kidnapped Amelia, Simon Blanco, has escaped from jail. His unhealthy obsession with Amelia fuels him and he devises a plan to capture her...and this time, he is determined that nothing will stand in his way. This time, he is sure he will not be caught, and he will do all the terrible things to Amelia that he has fantasized about during his time in prison. Amelia's nightmares about him worsen as she receives news of his escape and puts her and those around her on edge.

Seeing this story all come together was riveting. I read the book start to finish in one sitting; it was just so hard to put down! I love a good mystery book and Greg Messel's Sam Slater series never disappoints. This book is amazing even as a standalone. I thoroughly enjoyed it!"
