If At First You Don’t Succeed

It’s been seven years since the Seattle Strangler terrorized the city. His victims were all young, pretty, their lifeless bodies found wrapped in a home-sewn white dress. But there was one who miraculously escaped death, just before the Strangler disappeared…

Kill

Lara Church has only hazy memories of her long-ago attack. What she does have is a home in Austin, a job, and a chance at a normal life at last. Then Texas Ranger James Beck arrives on her doorstep with shattering news: The Strangler is back. And this time, he’s in Austin…

And Kill Again…

He’s always craved her, even as he killed the others. For so long he’s been waiting to unleash the beast within. And this time, he’ll prove he holds her life in his hands—right before he ends it forever…

In The Seventh Victim by Mary Burton, a serial killer appears to have moved from Seattle to Austin and restarted his gruesome work after a years-long hiatus. When Texas Ranger James Beck learns that the only surviving victim of the Seattle string of crimes now resides nearby, he’s determined to learn what she knows. With the help of a former Seattle detective, he locates Lara Church—and is frustrated to find that she has little recollection of the terrible attack. But Beck persuades her to share what she can, and as long-buried memories surface, menacing things begin to happen to Lara. Moved to protect her for more than professional reasons, Beck allows himself to care for Lara, and she finds he’s the first man she can trust in years. But more killings occur, and it’s not certain whether Beck and the woman he’s coming to love can stop the murderer before he finishes the task he started years ago. With plenty of procedural details, red herrings and spine-chilling danger, this tale of romantic suspense will keep readers up all night.
