Alexandra Sokoloff's HUNTRESS MOON

Thomas & Mercer

Just behind the picturesque facade of San Francisco’s stunning landscape and beloved tourist destinations, an international crime ring called Ogromni has a stranglehold on the city. However, FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is on the case, working diligently to shut down the syndicate.

Yet on the very day he heads to a local coffeehouse to meet with one of his undercover agents, he witnesses a shocking accident that feels much more ominous than it may first appear. For there’s a woman on the scene who puts his spider sense on high alert. And as he tries to figure out who she is, he soon realizes that he may very well be dealing with a female serial killer. Now he must trap her before any more blood is shed.

From the opening scene to the shocking conclusion, Huntress Moon lures readers in with sharp writing, vibrant imagery, compelling characters and authentic dialogue that never fails to mezmerize. Alexandra Sokoloff masterfully manipulates readers until they are practically begging for admittance to this pulse-pounding thrill ride, even if it lurches ahead at breakneck speed, utilizing Hitchcock-worthy twists and turns to keep us holding our breath.

This is a dazzling debut for this series, one which will undoubtedly keep readers coming back for more, eager to see what tricks Sokoloff has up her sleeve next, even if her writing haunts our dreams and makes us second guess everyone’s motives. If you like intense thrillers by authors like Heather Graham and Catherine Coulter, be sure to add Sokoloff’s FBI series to your must-read shelf.

      Before now I’d only read one of your books which you had written for the Nocturne series. But you write this series so well, I can’t help but want to read all of them! Keep up the great work.
