This is the 1st book in a trilogy. The suspenseful storyline gets your attention from the very beginning and the romance is sizzling! The main characters in each of the books were all roommates at the FBI academy. Rowan(The Prey), Miranda(The Hunt)and Olivia(The Kill). In The Prey, Rowan, who is now a former FBI agent and currently authoring books, helps to find a killer that is "copycatting" her novels with real-life victims.

I am an instant fan. If you enjoy Kay Hooper and Mariah Stewart, you will love Allison Brennan. This is a stay up late, edge of your seat, can't put it down book. Fast paced and well written with characters that are fleshed out and believable. This is the 1st of the series, and is well worth every penny spent to buy it.

Terrific beginning to a new series/trilogy. Reminded me of some earlier Tami Hoag books. It was a bit gruesome, but definitely believable. Rowan, the protagonist, carries survivor's guilt like a second skin and John, her hero, saves her though he has plenty of his own demons to battle.

The only thing that could have made this book a little bit better, was if it had a little humor in it to soften some of the blows. All-in-all...a great, fast-paced read. Heading on to book #2 now...."The Hunt" with secondary characters from this book taking the lead.

A very good book filled with suspense and a little bit of romance. This is the first book I have read by this author, but I intend to read her other books.

Pretty good for a debut novel. A little predictable, but a good read.

Fast pacing and good character development made this book an enjoyable read. Excellent way to "escape" for a few hours. Plan on reading more of her books.
