Product Description

Product Description

The most dangerous place to hide is in the dark...

A tough special-agent with the Department of Justice, and a dedicated single mother to her orphaned nephews, Samantha Chase is unbreakable. Until two women, both from the shadows of Sam’s past, are discovered strangled. For Sam, the most unnerving detail is the eucalyptus branch tucked behind the victims’ ears—the signature of a notorious serial murder already convicted and executed for his crimes.

To detective Nick Thomas, the only link to the copycat killings is Sam herself. And when she becomes the target of threats—each one more menacing than the last—his feelings for her just might jeopardize the case. But to understand the killer’s twisted motive is to explore Sam’s past—and a crime she’s spent a lifetime trying to bury...

4.0 out of 5 stars very good suspense novel 30 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book has all the components of a good romantic suspense novel. There is a tough female cop with a past she is trying to forget, a colleague who wants her to open up to him and let him look after her and a couple of problem teenagers. There are also several dead bodies and a killer who is getting closer to the heroine all the time. Danielle Girard manages to blend these factors and come up with a page turning read. I will be looking out for this author again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Indeed 28 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was very good indeed. A serial killer is on the loose only he was executed recently so this could be a massive problem for those that put him away including Sam Chase and she has enough going on in her life already. I really liked her and she certainly had her issues and problems but still did a great job along with raising her nephews.
I marked it down one star since there were a lot of apostrophes missing which was quite annoying. I will give other books by her a look, though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Chasing Darkness 2 Aug 2013
By MrsG
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an OK suspense/crime/detective novel. The flow is not quite as quick as some other books I've read in this genre, but it was OK, the main character, Sam Chase is intriguing and towards the end of the book it gets more and more interesting to see what is going on in her life and if she can solve the murders.
