A chilling urban legend becomes a terrifying reality . . .

After receiving a frantic message from her estranged sister, Lindsey Metcalf
travels to Seattle to find her--only to realize Traci has vanished without a
trace. As Lindsey delves into her sister's disappearance, she realizes young
Traci has been leading a shocking double life. Lindsey files a missing
persons report but, having had her share of run-ins with the police, Traci
isn't high on the department's list of priorities. And the only man able to
help Lindsey find the truth has his own trouble with the law . . .

Set to go to trial for a brutal assault charge, ex-cop turned private eye
Michael Striker plays by his own rules. Facing conviction and a possible
prison term, he's got nothing left to lose--except his final two weeks of
freedom. The last thing he needs is more complications--and nothing about
this case, or Lindsey Metcalf, is simple.

Their search for the truth will plunge them into a seedy world darker than
they ever imagined--and prove the existence of a chilling urban legend in
which none of the victims survive . . .

This book, like 'The Perfect Victim' and 'Shadow Side', was GREAT! Could be made into a movie. The suspense and the romance angle between Lindsey and Striker was well written. I read this book 3 times!

I enjoyed the book, however, it was so distracting having to deal with the very poor editing. There were misspelled words and the punctuation was just awful. With that in mind, the book was good and hard to put down. Just never knew what was going to happen next.

Even though she and her sister, Traci, have drifted apart somewhat, Lindsey Metcalf is protective of her; and when Traci vanishes, Lindsey is determined to find her. Unfortunately, Traci has led a shadow life, hidden from her family, but one the police know all about. That makes her disappearance more a convenience than anything else. Her only hope is a former cop with little to lose. Michael Striker has two weeks of freedom before he faces a likely jail sentence for assault. Helping Lindsey might not be the best way to spend that time, but it's the right thing to do, so he does it. Diving into Traci's world is full of unpleasant surprises Lindsey didn't want to find, but she finds something more than that; love with Michael. Yet, how can she hope to have a happily ever after if the man she loves is in jail, or she's dead? ........................... *** With the ultimate good/bad boy hero and a tense, edgy plot you will be glued to the page of this thriller. Linda Castillo is emerging as a guaranteed winner for romantic suspense. ***

The voice message from her sister Traci sounded like she was frightened, something her younger sibling never is. Return calls only get Traci¿s answering machine. Desperate to learn what happened to Traci, Lindsey Metcalf flies from Columbus to Seattle, but Traci has vanished. The cops feel that Traci skipped town to avoid jail time on a drug charge. Since there is evidence that Traci was seeing former cop Michael Striker, Lindsey visits him. However, he blows her away telling her to go home. Michael has his own problems as he faces ten years in prison for assaulting the suspect who murdered his partner...................................... A friend on the force informs Michael that someone broke into Traci¿s home and attacked Lindsey. Unable to stay on the sidelines, he comes over to see if the Midwesterner is okay and offers to search for Traci though he believes the latter is dead. Lindsey soon learns the truth about her sister¿s dangerous life in the sexual underground while falling in love with her champion who reciprocates, but knows his prison time insures nothing can happen between them..................................... This is an exciting private investigative romance with a major touch of amateur sleuth to get the tale off the ground. The story line is action packed and never lets up from the moment Lindsey arrives in Seattle. Though the epilogue following the climax is too simplistic, readers will take immense delight with the lead couple as they tour the shadiest part of the city. Fans will demand a Buckeye romance starring Lindsey¿s bossy spicy business partner Carissa soonest........................ Harriet Klausner
