"The survivor of a college dorm massacre, a woman accused of her lover's murder, Madeline Hewitson is haunted by ghosts and tormented by a killer only she can see. At night she works, writing and drawing the monster that slithers through her imagination, and living in fear of those moments when the doors of her mind unhinge and her nightmare lives in the daylight. A seasoned military veteran, Jacob Denisov lives alone in his small, darkened home, sleepless, starving, and angry. Every day he lives with the guilt that comes from his own failures and the carnage that followed. When neighbor Madeline Hewitson drives her car through the front wall of his home, she breaks his house--and his life--wide open. Forced to view the world outside, Jacob watches Maddie, recognizes a kindred spirit, and wonders what she fears more than herself. Has someone caught her in a twisted labyrinth of revenge and compassion, guilt and redemption, murder and madness? When Maddie's imaginary killer takes form, she fights back. But will she be strong enough to triumph, or is the killer she fears no more than a shadow, an illusion...that watches?"--

I quite enjoyed this book. I had read the previous books a while back and only vaguely recalled their plots but Kateri is a person that is hard to forget. I enjoy how the author portrays the various characters with all of their many flaws.

First book I've read by this author, but I was impressed by the Goodreads reviews. Very well-done. Secondary characters as interesting and well-drawn as the unusual and damaged main characters. Suspenseful, with few, if any plot holes. Setting intriguing and almost a character own its own. After finishing this I went back and read the first two books of this series.

The storyline was interesting, a stalked woman manages to rescue herself and a hero suffering from PTSD. Unfortunately there wasn't a lot of time to flesh the characters out because there are a number of secondary characters (I actually found Kateri, the Native American police chief the most believable and interesting) that slow the plotline. A good comfort read for romantic suspense fans who like Catherine Coulter and those who like ensemble series like Suzanne Brockmann's Troubleshooters.

Great book. The main characters Maddie and Jacob were very entertaining to say the least. And yes, the ending doesn't wrap everything up but this is a continuing series.

I had a hard time getting into this story, but when I finally did, I have to say I did enjoy it very much. Maddie and Jacob are two people who have been through hell and together they seem to be able to find their way back. But things keep happening to Maddie and everyone is wondering if she is having a relapse. I didn't completely like the ending because I felt as if I was left hanging a little , but I am sure the next book will solve one of the puzzles. All in all I would recommend this book.
