In New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden's gripping new series, a disgraced FBI profiler must save her reputation by stopping a sadistic killer she knows all too well.
Former FBI agent Samantha Dark was one of the most respected profilers in the bureau, an expert on the twisted minds and dark hearts of the most depraved criminals. But when her own former lover turned out to be the serial killer she was hunting, Samantha's career was destroyed. Blamed for the FBI's failure on the complex case, Samantha fled Washington, DC, for the quiet anonymity of Alabama.
Now an all-too-familiar killer is hunting once again. She can catch the sadistic assassin, but that means putting her trust in her former partner, Blake Gamble. Ex-military, Blake is tough, protective, precise. With her entire life on the brink, she knows he wants her back in the FBI…and possibly more.
But someone else wants her, too. A threat is waiting in the dark, a killer who has set his sights on the ultimate trophy victim—Samantha.
My ThoughtsCynthia Eden thrills in this new and exciting series!
I absolutely loved this book! It’s got everything you need: danger, deadly intrigue, thrilling suspense and a killer so vicious, you’ll need to read it with the lights on! Samantha is a strong and tough heroine who doesn’t let a pesky thing like fear get in the way of doing her job, or anything for that matter. Blake is a sexy by-the-book detective in over his head with his current case… and his feelings for his ex-partner Samantha.
AFTER THE DARK is a brilliantly methodical thriller that will capture your attention and won’t let go until the very last page! The Cape Fear-esque storyline and meticulously crafted characters will have you begging for more! In other words, it’s f*cking awesome! I can’t wait to read the next one!
If you’re into dark and dangerous suspense books, then this one’s for you! I highly recommend AFTER THE DARK or any one of Cynthia Eden’s books!
