One Scream Away by Kate Brady (Book Review)

Title: One Scream Away
Author: Kate Brady
Publisher: Forever

First sentence: A chilly night with just a wedge of moon, mist brewing on the water and congealing in gullies. (from an uncorrected proof of book)

I finished this book a while back but had only posted a partial review - so I am here to update it!

Chevy Bankes is a killer with a mission - and it begins and ends with Beth Denison. She is the "one victim" that got away from him 7 years before and he is out to correct that mistake now.

Since the night she was attacked, Beth's life has changed. She now has a young daughter to watch over. Her husband left her while she was pregnant and was killed in a plane crash not long after.

Neil Sheridan is the ex-FBI agent that was investigating some murders years before when his wife and son were killed. He has never been the same since and left the FBI because of it. Murders that begin happening again are similar to those from years earlier and he is called in on the case "unofficially". Even though both he and Beth have built up defensive walls because of their pasts, they grow closer and are able to begin to trust each other. How far will that trust take them before the nightmare is over?

Well, if you have been reading my blog for any amount of time, then you know that I love thrillers. This one was no exception. I was 1/2 way through the book when I felt like it was reaching the climax - only to realize I still had 200 pages to go! This book built the tension up numerous times as it continued to give you pieces to the puzzle - it definitely kept me up reading later many nights than I should have been!

This one certainly was a grabber! I couldn't put it down until I finished. Hubby even read it and liked it a lot. Great review and you are so right about her building up the suspense. Holy Penguins, Batgirl! Glad you enjoyed it. Have a great week and happy reading.
