The papers have called me a monster. You’ve either concluded that I am a braggart as well as a sadist or that I have a deep and driving need to be caught and punished.     In the sweltering heat of an Atlanta summer, a killer is pushing the city to its breaking point, preying on the unsuspecting, writing taunting letters to the media, promising more death. Desperate to stop the Wishbone Killer before another victim meets a shattering end, A.P.D. lieutenant Aaron Rauser turns to the one person he knows can penetrate a deranged mind: ex–FBI profiler Keye Street. And you must certainly be wondering if I am, in fact, the stranger you seek. Keye was a rising young star at the Bureau until addiction derailed her career and her life. Now sober and fighting to stay so, Keye picks up jobs where she can get them: catching adulterers, serving subpoenas, chasing down bailjumpers, and dodging the occasional bullet. With multiple victims, little to go on, and an entire police force looking for direction, the last thing Keye wants is to be pulled into the firestorm of Atlanta’s worst nightmare. Shall I convince you? And then it suddenly becomes clear that the hunter has become the hunted—and the stranger she seeks is far closer than she ever dared imagine.An electrifying thriller debut, The Stranger You Seek introduces a brash, flawed, and unforgettable heroine in a complex, twisting novel that takes readers deep into a sultry Southern summer, a city in the grips of chaos, and a harrowing cat-and-mouse game no reader will ever forget.

Originally published at my blog Chasing Empty PavementsTo be completely honest, I wasn't expecting much from this book. The last few Netgalley books I've read haven't been much to rave about and it seems I get into these slumps where it takes at least 5 or 6 books to get me to a book I really feel g...

3.0 The Stranger You Seek: A Novel
I really struggled with this book. I liked the main character and her determination but I guess I was just so overwhelmed in her thought process that I just wanted to turn her mind off. I was so overwhelmed by her thinking and her questioning processes that I no longer thought as I reader I had to ...

4.0 The Stranger You Seek: A Novel
There were quite a lot of things about this novel that reminded me of the Janet Evanovich series. Keye Street is quite a lot like Stephanie Plum. She's a divorced woman, she does some bond retrieval work, she has the same kind of attitude about a lot of things. But she's smarter, doesn't rely on ...
