Product Description

Hush
What's your greatest fear?

It's criminal profiler Ivy Dunlap's job to unravel the psyches of the most dangerous men alive. None haunts her dreams more than the killer who took her son's life sixteen years ago, then silently disappeared into the dark. Now an urgent request for help from the Chicago police has reawakened Ivy's greatest nightmare. The Madonna Murderer has returned to fulfill his calling. This time Ivy understands the killer and will face her greatest fear to stop him from killing again.


Publishers Weekly
Few serial killers penned by suspense writers today are as warped or as fully realized as the Madonna Murderer, who preys on newborn baby boys and their unwed mothers. As if the crime itself isn't bad enough, the killer leaves a musical snow globe that plays "Hush, Little Baby" in the infant's crib as his calling card. It has been nearly two decades since Ivy Dunlap and her infant son were victimized by the Madonna Murderer. Unbeknownst to the killer, Ivy survived the assault. Her baby didn't. Now a respected criminal psychologist, Ivy is called into service by the Chicago P.D. when the killer resurfaces after 16 years of dormancy. Her personal interest in the case takes on a sharper edge when she learns that her partner, Detective Max Irving, has a son named Ethan who is the same age her child would have been had he survived. When Ivy tries to rattle the Madonna Murderer by publishing a "dead-baby letter" in the newspaper, the killer becomes more daring; he befriends Ethan, sends Ivy a chunk of his skin bearing a tattoo and expands his profile of victims. Although some readers may be turned off by the novel's graphic nature, a wealth of procedural detail, a heart-thumping finale and two scarred but indelible protagonists make this a first-rate debut.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shout about Hush 18 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hush is a great read. It has a common theme of social misfit who becomes twisted and dangerous pursued by a cop that has almost as many issues as he does, but it does have some unique twists which makes it stand out from the hundreds of hybrids out there. It's a real page turner. Not for the faint hearted!

THIS TIME IVY UNDERSTANDS THE KILLER INSTINCT. SHE KNOWS WHAT MAN IS CAPABLE OF. THIS TIME SHE'S READY TO CONFRONT HER DEEPEST FEAR, FACE-TO-FACE. FOR THE VERY LAST TIME....
THIS IS ANNE FRASIER'S FIRST BOOK AND WHAT A FABULOUS BOOK IT IS. DEEPLY GRIPPING, GRUESOME AND FRIGHTENLY COMPELLING.
IT IS AN INTENSE BOOK ABOUT EMOTIONS,DARK EMOTIONS. THERE'S A SERIAL KILLER ON THE LOOSE, POLICE ARE BAFFLED, PEOPLE ARE TERRIFIED, FOR IVY IT NEVER STOPPED.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Madonna Murderer, an excellent read 26 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just choose this book as a break from the Vampire's I seem to be reading more and more about.

This gripped me from the start, and took me two Nights to finish it. I strongly recommend this book, for anyone who enjoys the thrill of the chase.
