Summary

Liz Janssen's marriage was over long before she filed for divorce. There was no way her soon-to-be ex-husband committed suicide because of her. Yet that is what her teenage son, Will, believes.

Others in the small West Virginia town share this thinking. Others who are disciples of a homicidal Satanic cult her husband was part of. The disciples want vengeance for the death of one of their own and will use Liz's troubled, grief-stricken son as an instrument for their revenge. To save herself and Will, Liz must stop them - and she must do so without Doug finding out.

Doug McBride is the new town sheriff, the man Liz has fallen in love with, and the man she cannot trust.

Chemist Dr. Eve Collins, wrongly accused by the CIA of developing and marketing a chemical weapon, learns she has been set up as a scapegoat by someone seeking to hide his own guilt.

CIA Operative John Burke doesn't believe her claim of innocence. When an attempt is made on her life, he believes her accomplice has turned on her. But something doesn't add up about Eve and her role in this crime she's accused of. Burke has too many questions, including - has his judgment been compromised by his fierce attraction to her?

It’s a question Burke asks himself again and again but when he learns Eve’s would-be assassin is close, he goes on the run with her. It's a temporary solution - running will not keep her safe. Burke must find the assassin - or die trying.

FBI Special Agent Paige Carson hoped she'd be able to start a new life in small-town South Carolina. But when a senator's sister is murdered and a blank postcard is left next to the body, Paige realizes that a killer from her past has found her--and is sending her a very personal message.

From the moment he hired her, FBI Special Agent in Charge Sam McKade knew Paige was hiding something. Prompted by this recent threat, she finally opens up: one year ago, she caught the eye of suspected serial killer Todd Thames. Now he's come back to pull her into his game, whether she wants to play or not.

As the danger increases, Paige and Sam give in to their growing attraction, and he vows to protect her no matter the cost. But the murderer will stop at nothing to get to his intended prey, and the strong arm of the law--and the shelter of her new love--may not be enough to save her.

Summary


From USA Today bestselling author Karen Fenech comes Book 2 of 2 in her Malice Series.

FEAR OF MALICE: The Malice Series -- Book Two

Her capture by serial killer Todd Thames six months earlier has left FBI Special Agent Paige Carson with a permanent physical injury that severely impairs her ability to function in the field. While Paige is battling fears of losing all she has come to hold dear in the new life she has made with her squad and with Sam, her boss and the man she loves, she and Sam investigate a murder that fellow agent Riley has been arrested for committing.

Special Agent in Charge Sam McKade feels a helplessness he's never known before as all he can do is watch Paige struggle to pick up the pieces of her shattered career--a career that his superiors believe would now be better suited behind a desk. Sam is in a fight to keep Paige in his small squad and in his life. When Riley is arrested it's the last thing Sam needs, but all is not as it seems. Sam discovers that this recent homicide is linked to the eight-year-old murder of former Special Agent in Charge Martin Hendershot. The unsolved murder of Sam's predecessor has long weighed on Sam and he will not rest until the killer is apprehended.

As the investigation intensifies, Paige and Sam learn that the killer has chosen another target--and time is running out before he kills again.
