Thriller / Horror

Blurb

Where better for a serial predator to operate than in the Chihuauan and Sonoran deserts that straddle the 2000 mile long U.S./Mexican border from California to Texas? Hundreds of people die there every year as they make the dangerous trek to the Golden North. So, what if that predator collected a few strays, just before they died of exposure? Later, after he'd had his horrific 'fun' with them, he'd dump the carcasses back in the desert. Would the Authorities notice? And what if the predator uses his position as the county's Medical Examiner to officially sweep the collections of nameless bones under the rug? Would the Authorities investigate? But what if one victim miraculously got away unnoticed and survived? And what if she wanted revenge?

mray2174: I did like this story. I would totally recommend it to a friend, but it didn't seem like a book. Your writing style reminded me of a fan fiction writer, always adding in tiny details and making things like "Oh, my name is [name that no one would ever name a child] and here is my life story. Oh, d...

what_up_yo: This whole story was a rollercoaster ride. From my heart aching for Conner to laughing at his nativity. I really recommend this book. Very detailed and overall an outstanding story.

Book_bandit 01: I thought this book was magnificent. It had me on the edge of my seat since the beginning, very suspenseful, and when you think you found the killer or found out about the plan, it keeps taking sharp turns. Beautifully written and I can’t wait for a sequel to know what happens next.

biancag2013: This was a really good book it made me feel like I was on an emotional roller coasters 💕🙂

Raychillgray : This book has a lot of potential and I really followed along well. Definitely wouldn’t put it in the thriller category though. There were moments that I could see an amazing plot structure while other times the plot seemed a little secondary to the story.

AudreyInAshes: I think this book is a really great modern-age thriller. The idea of the drug and its symptoms were explained generously, and while I did really enjoy this I just want to add that there is some mild gore and the killing of a pet (sorry to spoil, but I like to be prepared.) It is very interesting,...

horsebizzy: Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Great job Crystal.
