This is the second installment in Ms. Brady's Sheridan Series. This one is about the younger brother Mitch and it can stand-alone, but it’s best read after reading book one, One Scream Away. Even though the main characters have not seen each other in years the attraction between them was still strong. This story has it all, a nut job killer, dirty cops, suspense, and romance. This book kept me on the edge of my seat and I could not put it down until the last page. And in my opinion the best part was that Ms. Brady gave just enough clues as to the identity of the killer but not enough for you to guess who it was until the end of the book. I will keep checking her website so that I will know when the next book will be out.
