With a serial killer on the loose…

Secrets get you killed.

Detective Jake McAllister isn’t aware Kyra Chase is connected to a twenty-year-old unsolved murder. He sees his new case partner only as an unwelcome distraction. But with the body count rising, they’ll need to trust each other to help them catch a killer who seems to know more about Kyra than Jake does.


Highly addictive! Harlequin is bringing us a twist again in their Intrigue line that we’ve seen a time or two in the past where the same couple will star in a series of four books instead of just one. It’s a fun way to extend a storyline while bringing us even more of a couple we’re enjoying. Carol Ericson’s upcoming THE SETUP kicks off the Kyra and Jake Investigation series and each continuing book will come out the following month. There wasn’t a huge amount of romance or relationship development in this book for Kyra and Jake, but the intrigue and suspense was top notch and hooked me quickly on this storyline and in particular this serial killer case. I’m so looking forward to their continuation!

Jake is a dedicated cop who just got handed the case of a lifetime. Seeing different aspects of him begin to unravel as he delves into this killer is satisfying.

Kyra is complex and admirable. She gives her job her all, and as her past begins to come back to haunt her we begin to see why it’s so important to her.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is intrigued by a diabolical serial killer and the twists and turns the case often takes as lies are revealed and truths are uncovered.
