Description

A beautiful newscaster teams up with a Virginia detective to stop a serial killer in this romantic thriller by the New York Times bestselling author.

Beside each body, he leaves a simple charm bearing a woman's name: Ruth, Judith, Rachel. The victims were strangers to each other, but they have been chosen with care. Each bears a striking resemblance to Kendall Shaw, a local anchorwoman. And each is brutally strangled by a madman whose obsession will never end . . .

In front of the cameras, Kendall is the picture of stylish confidence. But at night she's haunted by nightmares in which she is young, alone, and filled with fear. Are these memories—or omens? Despite warnings from Richmond Detective Jacob Warwick, Kendall can't stop investigating the recent string of murders. She knows she holds the key to catching an obsessed psychopath—ss long as he doesn't catch her first . . .

As Kendall and Jacob dig deep into the victims' backgrounds, a legacy of evil begins to resurface. Every moment—and every murder—has been leading to Kendall. And nothing will stop the killer making her the final victim . . .

"With a gift for artful obfuscation, Burton juggles a budding romance and two very plausible might-be perpetrators right up to the tense conclusion."Publishers Weekly

        September 8, 2008
        A taut race to identify and apprehend the person who is killing look-alikes of popular Richmond, Va., TV anchorwoman Kendall Shaw is enhanced with a dash of sexual tension plus generous handfuls of emotional baggage. After two women who resemble Kendall are found dead, it's clear that sooner or later the killer will directly target the aggressive newscaster. As homicide detective Jacob Warwick, who saw Kendall at her most vulnerable after rescuing her from an insane kidnapper, struggles with his attraction to her, he also needs to simultaneously protect her and keep her sharp reporter's instincts away from police business, all while she denies that she's in danger or needs any help. With a gift for artful obfuscation, Burton juggles a budding romance and two very plausible might-be perpetrators right up to the tense conclusion.
