One Scream Away by Kate Brady... Review & Giveaway

One step away...

Seven years ago Beth Denison was attacked by a killer named Chevy Bankes. Since then, she's created a new life for herself and her daughter, one far removed from the night that ended in an awful tragedy. But now Bankes is out of prison, and his chilling phone calls tell Beth he's coming for her

.One breath away...

Ex-FBI agent Neil Sheridan is driven to investigate a chain of murders that are eerily similar to a disturbing case from his past. When the killer's trail dead-ends at Beth's doorstep, Neil finds a beautiful woman with a secret she'll do anything to keep. Yet even as Beth surrenders to Neil's protection - and then his embrace - she can't tell him why Bankes hungers to hear her scream, and why she'll soon consider doing the unthinkable: face Bankes alone.

One Scream Away grabs you from the start and will not let you go! A thrilling ride of suspense with unforgettable characters , an exciting story with twists & turns that will leave you holding your breath. This debut novel by Kate Brady a real page turner!

From the first paragraph in the book: A Chilly night with just a wedge of moon, mist brewing on the water and congealing in gullies... No sound but the strangled sobs of a woman about to die..." The writing is fluid and the story is well paced. The suspense builds up along the way as we watch killer Chevy Bankes get closer and closer to reaching his target, Beth Dennison, and leaving a trail of dead women behind. We are drawn in immediately and with the frightening phone calls to Beth along the way, we begin to feel the terror of a killer hunting us down... I loved this book! I could not put it down once I started it. "Leave the lights on" Scary, it held my attention and it will hold yours! Want to learn more? Here's a link to more of One Scream Away!

A Little about Kate...
