It’s no secret among the Phantoms crew that lead investigator Sammy Hanesworth pretty much hates team psychologist Cain McClutchen. The friction between them is taut with tension…and unexpected attraction. He knows full well that something about him rubs her the wrong way, even though he admires the witty, gorgeous spitfire more than a lot. But now they’re on a terrifying case—with orders from the network to get along or else.
Filled with past horrors, the rural Nebraska site is beyond creepy. And Sammy knows it all too well. It’s her hometown and near the place where her mother was killed. As a sinister presence makes itself known, Sammy finds herself turning to Cain, the last person she expected. Despite darkness surrounding them, animosity gives way to something bright and unpredictably intimate.
Yet nothing will prepare them for the evil they are about to face…
This book is part of a series and I haven’t read any of the others. This was a small issue as I felt I missed out on some backstory and the characters had already been developed in another story.
I am not a fan of horror so my enjoyment is tinged by the fact it is a genre I don’t enjoy. If you are a fan of this genre then you will definitely like this book.
I really like the witty banter between Cain and Sammy but I felt Sammy pushed him away too much. It got slightly annoying.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
