It was just one moment.

It was just one mistake.

For years, men have been disappearing. A father in North Carolina. A boater in California. A hiker in Arkansas. And more, scattered across the United States. The FBI knows who’s responsible: a serial killer they caught, a man they sent young profiler Cole Kennedy to interrogate. But then the killer escaped, leaving the FBI in chaos and Cole’s psyche in tatters.

Eight years later, Cole’s life has changed. He’s found the man of his dreams, and he’s moved to Iowa to be with Special Agent Noah Downing, leaving the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit and the murderers behind.

Or so he thought.

An attack on the backroads of Iowa shatters the FBI, and in the aftermath, they uncover the signature of the last man they expect: the killer who got away. Now he’s hunting Noah, and the BAU descends on Des Moines, sending Cole back on the psychological chase.

To catch the only man who has ever beaten him, Cole will have to delve inside the killer’s mind. It’s a place he barely survived before, and the deeper he goes, the more horrors await. And though Noah is ordered to back off the investigation, he won’t leave Cole to face this darkness alone.

If Cole has any hope of saving the man he loves, he must unravel the killer’s twisted profile and follow his trail of death… even when it leads him into the marrow of his worst nightmares.

READ MY REVIEW

Blurb

It was just one night.

It was just one mistake.

FBI Agent Noah Downing had questions about his sexuality that a single night in Vegas should have answered. But dawn finds him on a plane back to Iowa, back on the trail of a vicious serial killer who disappeared six years ago and has suddenly resurfaced. There’s nothing like a murder investigation to escape an existential crisis.

FBI profiler Cole Kennedy is still reeling after finding a heart-stopping connection with a seemingly perfect man, only for him to vanish. When he’s sent to Iowa to profile the killer terrorizing America’s heartland, he finds more questions than answers – both about the murderer and about Noah, the last man he ever expected to see again.

A twisted secret stretches between Cole and Noah, tangled with questions they both have about each other. But now, thrown together, they’ll have to unravel the killer’s profile and follow his trail… back to the very beginning, to where everyone’s questions are answered once and for all.

***This is an MM romantic suspense novel, featuring a second chance romance, the hunt for a twisted serial killer, and one man’s journey to acceptance.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tal Bauer is an evil, evil man 😉

I have absolutely no idea where to start with this review.

Basically, if you appreciate Tal’s unique ability to make a reader both love and hate him with the same passion because of what he puts his characters through, you’ll adore this book.

It’s a head rush, an adrenalin inspiring, heart-pounding, hand in the mouth, fear-inducing emotional ride that’s also full of tenderness, of strength of will, of sheer determination.

The plot’s fairly clear from the blurb, there’ll be no spoilers here. Let’s just say it is about as Tal as you can get in terms of twisted expectations, of false trails, of narratives which present one argument and then produce a completely different conclusion.

It’s compelling, it’s addictive, it’s rage-inducing, it will make you gasp, it will probably turn your stomach at some points, although it’s nowhere near as vomit inducing as The Murder Between Us was at times!

You will be on the edge of your seat (or bed in my case) from the moment you pick it up until the moment you finish. There is no respite once the chase begins.

Tal Bauer, you are beyond my words, your ability to craft such complex tales of psychological depth is incredible.

***SPOILER-ISH***

I really hope this series continues because I cannot get enough of Cole and Noah.

EBook---Secret-Simon

Simon
Being the nephew of one of the most infamous mob bosses in the world isn’t easy. Our family has enemies everywhere, and no one is safe without protection.

Here I am at college with a fresh start, a new last name, and secrets hidden from those around me—life is going according to plan. Then one day on campus, I see him…and I want him to strip me bare…in more ways than one.

Rush
Abernathy is more than just the university I attend. It’s my destiny, my namesake. Singing and entertaining are who I am, but my father wants me to major in something more appropriate for the name I carry.

I’ve resigned myself to being who my father wants, doing what he wants. Then Simon comes into my life…and turns everything upside down. Now I have a reason to fight for what I want.

Who knew our love story would lead to secrets revealed, murderous plots, and finding our forever buried under so many lies?

Hopefully, we’ll live long enough to see it.

Excerpt

Figuring out how to begin my story was the hardest part, but I knew when it was over, there was a good chance Rush would walk out that door and never return. I supposed it didn’t matter how I started—the end would be the same, most likely.

“I’m about to tell you a lot of shit, Rush. You’re not going to like most of it, and I understand you may never want to see me again afterward.” He was about to interrupt, but I held up a finger. “Don’t make a promise you don’t know if you can keep by saying ‘nothing I tell you will change how you feel,’ because that’s bullshit. What I will ask is only one thing. Let me tell the story to the end before you walk out of here.”

“You’re so sure I’ll leave?”

I nodded. “Yeah.”

Rush tightly fisted his hands together on his lap, readying himself, no doubt. “Okay, tell me.”
