Six years ago, Lucy Kincaid was attacked and nearly killed by an online predator. She survived. Her attacker did not. Now Lucy’s goal is to join the FBI and fight cyber-crime, but in the meantime, she’s volunteering with a victim’s rights group, surfing the Web undercover to lure sex offenders into the hands of the law. But when the predators she hunts start turning up as murder victims, the FBI takes a whole new interest in Lucy.
With her future and possibly even her freedom suddenly in jeopardy, Lucy discovers she’s a pawn in someone’s twisted plot to mete out vigilante justice. She joins forces with security expert and daredevil Sean Rogan, and together they track their elusive quarry from anonymous online chat rooms onto the mean streets of Washington, D.C. But someone else is shadowing them: A merciless stalker has his savage eye on Lucy. The only way for her to escape his brutality may be another fight to the death.
I enjoyed this book. Lucy is strong, vibrant, survivor and tough as nails, even with all she has been through. An amazing feat considering what all her character had endured. Sean reminded me of a big, strong teddy bear. I just wanted to hug him lol. Kate reminded me of the big mamma lion. Someone who would do anything to protect those she loved and at any cost.
The book was full of twists and turns. I was never fully sure who I should or shouldn't trust or really who the bad guys were. The storyline is one we all fear and hate to see in the headlines, sex crimes. Kidnapping, rape, murder, torture. Everything you don't want to see when you turn on the evening news.
If I had any complaints about the book, it would be, the mass amount of characters involved. Between victims, suspects, the good guys and filler characters, I noticed I spent a fair amount of time indexing people and trying to keep track of who was who. Not that this is a bad thing mind you. I think most of the characters are key players in book, you just have to be willing to take your time and really soak up the book.
