A Novel

  • bestseller
An Internet lothario is murdered in cold blood. Police immediately focus their investigation on the victims whose broken hearts he left in his virtual wake. Can Ali Reynolds prove a former colleague’s innocence before a remorseless killer decides it’s time to pull the plug . . . on her?

Ali Reynolds begins the summer thinking her most difficult challenge will be surviving a six-week-long course at the Arizona Police Academy. Then an acquaintance from her old news broadcasting days in California shows up with an alcohol problem and an unlikely story about a missing fiancé. Ali reluctantly agrees to help.

The man posing as former anchorwoman Brenda Riley’s husband-to-be is revealed to be a cyber-sociopath. When he turns up dead, Brenda becomes the prime suspect, having vanished without a trace after breaking into his home days earlier. Attempting to clear her friend’s name, Ali is quickly drawn into a web of online intrigue that threatens to lead to a real-world fatal error.
