Cynthia Eden’s latest romantic suspense, DEADLY FEAR, has arrived in book stores just in time for the summer reading season.
Luke Dante has finally gotten the plumb FBI assignment he has been working toward for years. To his surprise, he finds himself working with the “one that got away”, former lover Monica Davenport. Their first assignment together is to travel to the small town of Jasper, Mississippi to decide if they have a serial killer on the loose down there. Though the murders are quite different, they have a few striking similarities. The killer appears to have sent a note to the victims prior to their deaths asking them what scares them. Monica, with her ability to get into the killer’s head and Luke, with his ability to work the victims, are the perfect team for the job. But when the killer turns his attention to Monica, a past she would prefer to keep secret rears its ugly head.
Cynthia Eden’s DEADLY FEAR is a cat and mouse game of secret fears and deadly consequences. As each new victim is found to have died experiencing their most secret fears, it is up to Monica and Luke to uncover the killer before he kills again. The story is fast paced, revealing and romantically charged. Perhaps the scariest part of these murders is that the killer somehow knows his victims’ darkest fears and kills using their phobias. When the killer turns his attention toward Monica, the fear factor escalates as it becomes obvious that Monica is going to have to let down her emotional walls to Luke and share her darkest fears and the most terrifying moments of her life with him if they are going to stop a murderer.
Cynthia Eden knows just how to keep suspense and romance building and she does just that in her latest summer read, DEADLY FEAR, a frightening race to catch a serial killer, which keeps readers on the edge of their seats shaking in trepidation. Romantic suspense lovers looking for a good book to read on vacation will not be disappointed with the latest Cynthia Eden release, DEADLY FEAR. Just don’t forget to leave a nightlight on.
