Alex Klein is a professional artistic photographer. He has been given the opportunity to collaborate with a crime reporter on a book about murderers. The night terrors he has had his whole life disappeared when he met Harley Scott. With the upcoming trip approaching, the night terrors are back.
Being jumpy is not good when you are a private investigator and Harley Scott is feeling very jumpy. With his White Knight complex, Harley’s gut is telling him something is not right. When things start to go wrong in St. Louis and secrets are revealed, it takes everything within Harley to not drag Alex back home. Especially when all of the signs are pointing towards danger and Alex.
At the airport on his flight from St. Louis, Missouri to Seattle, Washington, Alex meets a lady who is dressed in a retro manner. When Harley calls to demand Alex come home, he tells Alex about the woman who was following them one evening. Alex refuses to leave Seattle, though he has been having feelings that this job might not be what he wanted. There are secrets which could threaten their ten year relationship, if someone does not kill one of them first.
This book is a nail biter. It kept me on the edge of my seat, flipping the pages as quickly as I could. Rarely do I find myself yelling at characters in a book, but I did at these characters! Leo, chauffeur/ babysitter for Alex, was the cherry on top. He added a level of humor to this story which kept it from becoming too dark. This story is dark and spooky, but one I could not put down until the last page was read. Ms. Fox has once again taken this reviewer on an adventure and I look forward to reading more from her in the future.
