Stranger Danger

A Lauren Beck Crime Novel #3

WILL CHASING A KILLER put this determined fighter on the wrong end of a bullet?

    Lauren Beck never stopped caring despite her relinquished badge. Still flat broke after a criminal wiped her out, the cancer survivor visits her beloved dad only to be mugged on his doorstep. Then learning her stepmother has mysteriously vanished, the former cop suspects her attack foreshadows a deeper threat.

    Following the trail of money transfers, Lauren’s search for the missing woman triggers painful memories of her last abduction case–when she arrived too late. As she closes in on the truth, the ex-officer discovers another disturbing mystery of abducted girls that points to a depraved predator on the loose.
    Can she connect the dots before more innocent blood is shed?
   If you like scrappy heroines, nail-biting suspense, and twisted mysteries, then you’ll love this white-knuckle manhunt.
