As a new serial killer dubbed the “Stripper Slayer” plagues Los Angeles, Sapphire once again sheds her socialite persona, this time to go undercover as a penniless stripper. Struggling to find the brutal man before he slays again, Sapphire finds that the thin wall separating her double life is cracking.

Meanwhile, the man she does want, handsome Detective Aston Ridder, is making her life hell as he closes in on the Serial Catcher’s trail.
Sapphire scrambles to keep the chaos at bay, unaware that someone else is tracking her as well. A serial killer from her past is back and will stop at nothing to get his vengeance.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I read the first book in this series and loved it, so I was excited to see that the second book was available. I have to say, I think this one is even better than the first.
Our lovely heroine is back again and her tough persona and great attitude once more make this a truly delightful book to read. The criminal romance is a difficult genre in my opinion, where it is often hard to find a good balance. Mia Thompson has managed this well and made it so much fun.
One thing that stands out about these novels for me is that the heroine never feels like she is contrived and pushed to be something other than what she is. Her actions and thoughts seem very natural and after a while you begin to feel like you know her personally and as a friend.
The romance is well done and steamy without being disgusting and it is not the sole source of action in the book. There are multiple story lines going on in this book that all manage to tie in to the major events by the end.
I really enjoyed reading this and encourage others to check out this series. it is worth the time to read.
