Sometimes, what we hunt can capture us….
He wants her dead. She knows she should be afraid. After all, he’s a contract hit-man. But someone has to stop his killing spree. An old locket with a painful history, connects their minds. She is aware of his plans far more than he is aware of her presence inside his head. However, the roles can reverse at any time. The question is: Can she stop him, even with the help of a CIA operative, especially when the hit-man is hell-bent on completing his latest mission.
Dr. Amelia Rimgold is a young research scientist about to testify in a generic drug fraud. She’s descended from a Salem resident hung as a witch, and believes her locket is a protective amulet. After all, it’s been passed down the line of her ancestors for hundreds of years. Her beliefs are put to the test when a contract killer attacks her and takes the locket. While she survives the attack, she finds herself bound to the killer through the paranormal amulet. She can see his thoughts and actions, but also experiences sympathetic rages.
CIA operative Ted Bester doesn’t believe in things he can’t explain by rational means. However, when the chemist demonstrates her abilities, he’s convinced. Now he must keep her safe, find the killer, and help her break the connection between them before it’s too late.
As the pair track the hit man, they become the hunted when the killer discovers a way to turn the power of the amulet against them. He redoubles his efforts to complete the job he thought long finished, and correct his one and only career mistake.
If you like complex plot twists, heart-pounding action, and a touch of the mysterious akin to Iris Johansen, you’ll enjoy this paranormal romantic suspense.
