A relentless FBI profiler hunts a vicious killer.
When old evidence turns up on a fresh corpse, ASAC Lincoln Frazer is determined it won’t delay the execution of a convicted serial killer. But when more young women are brutally slain, it becomes clear—this new killer is intimately familiar with the old murders.
A dedicated emergency physician hides a dark secret.
Former Army Captain Dr. Isadora Campbell helped her mother hide a terrible crime. After her mother’s death a year ago, Izzy resigned her commission and returned to the Outer Banks to raise her rebellious teenage sister. But it doesn’t take long for Izzy to suspect that someone knows exactly what she did, all those years ago.
If they work together, maybe no one else will die.
With pressure mounting to reopen the old case, Frazer will use any means possible to catch the killer. Thrust together during the investigation, he and Izzy find themselves reluctantly attracted to one another, and begin an affair. Meanwhile the killer is much closer than they think. Izzy’s confession of her secret drives Frazer away as he struggles with her deception. By the time he realizes he’s fallen in love with the stubborn woman, the killer has her. Now the race is on to save Izzy, and any chance of a future they might have together.
Toni Anderson has done it again. Cold Fear is a gripping and suspenseful tale that held my attention to the very end.
The story is about a new crime that collides with old evidence of a notorious criminal who is in a death row list. FBI agent Lincoln Frazer is quick to act to make sure the killers are off the street; to make sure the offenders get a taste of justice.
Dr. Isadora Campbell has a deep dark secret, and the recent killings are slowly pushing her secret to the surface. As Lincoln and Isadora reluctantly starts to get attracted to each other, the secret Isadora holds threaten to shatter their chance to be together.
I have been a loyal reader of Toni’s works for a long time. The hero and heroine are realistic--with their strengths and flaws that make them human. The story is well developed, giving Lincoln and Isadora the time to grow feelings for each other. Their relationship doesn’t feel rushed.
At first, I had a hard time liking Lincoln. He seems too detached and cold. But beneath that icy demeanor, he’s actually a tormented soul. Isadora finally could get past his sturdy wall and brings out the other side of Lincoln that is more likeable.
The crimes are believable. I feel like I was in the middle of a murder investigation. Toni skillfully writes detailed terms that are used in a real investigation. It makes Cold Fear more than just a fiction. The plot is twisted several times, and it keeps me guessing who the real bad guy is.
Some depictions are quite disturbing. Cold Fear is heavy on plot, peppered with romance. The story concludes with a satisfying end. There are several references to the previous books in the series. Although you can read Cold Fear as a standalone book, I suggest you read from the first installment to make the reading smoother and more enjoyable.
If you love your suspense book full with surprises at every turn, Cold Fear is for you.
