From the Back Cover:
A killer is loose who has a taste for human blood. Cole presses harder into the investigation, but the body count climbs. He has personal reasons for detesting the press, so sparks fly when Laurie hounds him for a story. Fate forces them to join forces, neither one anticipating the attraction that ensues. But just as Cole thinks he is close to finding all the answers, both personal and professional, Laurie disappears.
Blood. The hands, face, and shirt soaked with it. The heart pumps the hot liquid through arteries and veins; the tortured soul stops it. God creates life and Satan destroys it.
"Dear, God," the anguished soul cries to the blackened heavens, offering tainted hands, falling to its knees. The heels of the palms shield the torment in its dark eyes, the stench of vital fluid of life is all around. A muffled query is heard. "Why have you forsaken me?"
But the soul knows it will strike again. The hunger for spilled blood is too intense. Another life will be taken. And they will be too ignorant to stop it.
Rising on shaken limbs, the virulent figure flees from the shadows and into the darkened night.
HUNTRESS BOOK REVIEWS Reviewed by Detra Fitch
If you like Mary Higgins-Clark and Patricia
Cornwell, then you MUST try Patricia A. Rasey! She has
an uncanny talent that is like a merger of the two,
which makes this story twice the action and suspense!
Scribes World Reviews by Sabrina Edwards
A creepy villain! Sure to delight fans of romantic suspense. Ms. Rasey has
written a story that you won't be able to put down until the end. And then
you will think twice about turning out the lights!
Romance Communications by: Terrie Figueroa
DEADLY OBSESSION is a taut, gripping, fast paced story of murder and madness.
The tension mounts page after page, until the chilling and terrifying
conclusion. The plot flows seamlessly and leaves the reader guessing as to
who, and what the killer is until the very end. The characters are well
defined and realistic, from the bitter, angry homicide detective to the
chilling portrayal of a soul lost to madness. The dialogue is crisp, and
direct, moving the story forward smoothly. While this is a suspense novel,
there is also the underlying romance between Laurie and Cole, which is done
so well, it blends into the main story flawlessly.
DEADLY OBSESSION is an
intense story best read with all the lights on. I highly recommend this well
written novel to those who enjoy a murder mystery with enough suspense to
keep them on the edge of their seat.
