After The Dark
A Killer Instinct Novel
by Cynthia Eden
In this gripping new series by New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden, a disgraced FBI profiler must save her reputation by stopping a sadistic killer she knows all too well
Former FBI agent Samantha Dark was one of the most respected profilers in the bureau, an expert on the twisted minds and dark hearts of the most depraved criminals. But when her own former lover turned out to be the serial killer she was hunting, Samantha's career was destroyed. Blamed for the FBI's failure on the complex case, Samantha left Washington, DC, for the quiet anonymity of Alabama.
Now an all-too-familiar killer is hunting once again. She can catch the cunning assassin, but that means putting her trust in her former partner, Blake Gamble. Ex-military, Blake is tough, protective, precise. With her entire life on the brink, she knows he wants her back in the FBI…and possibly more.
But someone else wants her, too. A threat is waiting in the dark, a killer who has set his sights on the ultimate trophy victim—Samantha.
Are you a fan of Cynthia Eden's Deadly series? If you loved those books you will certainly love this series too. After The Dark will have you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire story from one thrilling moment to the next.
Like the Deadly series, this story has a slight darkness to it with unexpected twists that will keep you glued to the book. Yes, we do have a bit of the romance side too...the relationship between Blake & Samantha is very intense and who wouldn't want a take-charge guy like that watching out for your safety.
The only slight downside to this book was that I didn't know there was a short prequel novella (Gathering Dusk) so this book seems to jump right in and I thought I may have missed something.
