First in a new series of compelling police procedurals

It's more than revenge.

Ravaged by guilt, Detective Kay Delaney is reeling from an attack that resulted in her partner's death. Her only consolation is that serial killer Bernard Eales, who shot her partner, sits in Maryland's State Penitentiary awaiting what's expected to be a sure conviction. But when the prosecution's star witness turns up dead -- and the body bears the same gruesome marks found on Eales's victims -- Kay wonders whether the right man is about to stand trial.

It's the fight of her life.

Partnered with her former lover, Danny Finnerty, Kay must confront the man who haunts her dreams -- even if it means proving him innocent of three shocking crimes. As the body count rises, Kay embarks on a dark journey that will test her shattered courage, pit her against an unseen evil, and challenge her to unlock a killer's chilling obsession...before it's too late.

Blue Valor, Detective Kay Delaney

"…a chilling first novel, a psychological thriller…The author’s impressive ability to get inside the heads of multiple characters (particularly the killer’s) without betraying plot twists, and her refusal to shy away from morbid detail, will keep readers enthralled."
