Ties That Bind - Anne Patrick
FBI profiler Jo McDaniels has an unusual gift. As with most profilers, they are able to take the evidence, background of the victims and crime scene photos and reenact in their minds what took place between the killer and the victim. But what if there are no crime scenes and the victims have been decapitated in order to hide their identity? This is where Jo’s unusual gift comes into play. Unlike most profilers in her field, she is able to go a step further. Using her psychic ability she is able to sense exactly what the victim felt prior to their death. Her ability allows her to get to know the victims better than anyone else. She not only feels their emotions; she feels their pain.
Sheriff Austin Garrett doesn’t quite know what to think of the sassy and beautiful profiler that is able to tell him more about the victim after a few minutes with her than the coroner knows. But he’s willing to try anything to catch the serial killer plaguing his community. In all his years in law enforcement, nothing has prepared him for the monster he is up against now. A killer so cruel and calculating that it leaves him no choice but to turn to Jo and her unique gift.
Jo knows the risk she’s taking by using her psychic abilities. The last time she relied on it, it almost cost her career as well as her sanity. As the case progresses and the body count rises they soon realize that Jo’s sanity isn’t all that is at risk. She has become the killer’s ultimate kill.
The Hunter and the Marked - John Beachem
The Storms of Vengeance are upon you. The end is here. The last words of a dead man haunt the people of Terne, driving some to despair while others convince themselves nothing is amiss and cling to an increasingly desperate dream of peace. Captain Toren, nursing injuries both physical and emotional, buries himself in his work, delving deeper into the assassination of Relex Unara, and the mystery of who is behind the unfolding events. As the countdown to the day of reckoning continues, his search leads him and those he holds dear deeper and deeper into a web of deceit and betrayal more dangerous than he can imagine.
Far to the north, unknown to those in Terne, a far different series of events is unfolding. Separated from their homes by the waters of the Karees River, Calton Relanas and his friends are devastated and nearly broken by the losses they have suffered and hardships they have faced. Still, they remain convinced they may be the only ones standing between their homeland and total destruction. Turning to the north, they brave the horrors of the jungle and its monstrous inhabitants in the hope that it holds the key to their kingdom’s salvation.
Calton and his friends battle their way through lands more perilous than any battlefield, fighting both the dangers of the jungle and their own growing suspicions and misgivings about one another. As if the jungle itself were not enough, something or someone stalks them from the shadows of the trees. It watches their every move and studies their every choice; but is it someone hunting the same distant mark, ready to aid them in their quest; or is it someone who has an entirely different target in mind -- one much, much closer at hand.Book 2 of the Lorradda Stone series
