Spell-binding and scary, but very good reading.
A murderer goes to confession asking for absolution for a crime he is going to commit. He chillingly describes how he tortured and killed his last victim. He challenges the priest to notify the authorities. The priest refuses to knowing the he can't reveal what is said in confession. The killer plays mind games with the priest letting him know he has already selected his next victim. This killing will be better, after all, practice makes perfect. The killer is convinced no one can stop him. He wants a challenge. He tells the priest to call his FBI friend to come and take the next victim into hiding. The killer will either follow or look for a new victim. He describes his next victim in such terms that the priest is shocked to realize it is his sister.
In the still shadows of the confessional, a madman tautingly reveals his plan for a murder he is going to commit, pulling Father Thomas Madden into a twisted game by disclosing his next intended victim: Tom's sister, Laurant. In a frantic race to protect her, Tom calls upon his best friend, elite FBI agent Nick Buchanan, to track the predator who is closing in on Laurant. Now, as an electrifying attraction grows between Laurant and Nick, so does the danger--and one false move will cost both of them everything that matters.
I ENJOYED READING THIS BOOK.
I HAVE READ ALL JULIE GARWOOD BOOKS, I PARTICULARLY LIKE HER 1200AD SERIES, WHICH THIS IS NOT, BUT BECAUSE I LIKE JULIE I DECIDED TO TRY THE BOOKS. HEARTBRAKER I BELIEVE IS THE SECOND OR THIRD IN HER CONTEMPORARY SERIES AND FOR A FIRST TIME IT WAS REALLY GOOD. ITS ABOUT SOMEONE WHO HAS A VENDETTA ON A PRIEST AND WANTS HIM TO SUFFER BY GOING AFTER HIS SISTER, SO HE CALLS HIS FRIEND IN THE FBI, WHO ASKS HIS FRIEND TO HELP OUT AND IF COURSE THE FRIEND FALLS FOR THE SISTER, I DO LOVE HER HAPPY ENDINGS. IF NO ONE HAS READ THIS BOOKS THEY REALLY SHOULD BECAUSE THE CAST OF CHARACTERS AND THE WRITING IS GREAT.
