I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.

Melinda Woodhall is the author of the new Veronica Lee Thriller series, as well as the page-turning Mercy Harbor Thriller series. In addition to writing romantic thrillers and police procedurals, Melinda also writes women’s contemporary fiction as M.M. Arvin.

An Obsessed Killer Watches Her Every Move
When the estranged wife of a high-powered pharmaceutical CEO witnesses the brutal slaying of her husband’s latest mistress, the prime suspect in the homicide claims that FBI profiler and criminal psychologist Bridget Bishop is his unlikely alibi.

After the savage murder is linked to two similar homicides, the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit is drawn into the hunt for a suspected serial killer, and Bridget must join forces with a rival profiler in a desperate bid to find the diabolic killer’s hiding place before another innocent life is lost.

“Time to give the devil his due.”

Bridget has been assigned a high-profile case of a wealthy couple divorcing and fighting for custody of their teenage daughter. The couple both want to win and are not holding back. When her case becomes intertwined with a murder investigation, the last thing Bridget expects is a partner. The twists keep coming, and if Bridget and the team aren’t careful- the tide will take them all out.

I enjoyed how so many of the characters were a focus in this book. We got to spend quite a bit of time seeing this through Charlie’s view, which was great.

I like how this story was told and how the pacing was controlled. I also enjoyed the story within a story, focusing on our team. We got glimpses into Gage, Tate, and Santino that we hadn’t seen before.

This was an intense ride, with motives and suspects everywhere. I loved the team aspect that involved figuring out what happened.

This series gets better with each new book, and I hope Charlie Day gets a spin-off because she is fantastic.
