Book Two in the Huntress/FBI Thriller Series
Blood Moon, the second in the Huntress, FBI Thrillers series, caught my attention from the first page. I couldn’t wait to read it after finishing Huntress Moon. The first book stayed in my mind. The unique plot left me curious to know how the series would proceed.
It gets off to a fast start when the FBI rescues teens and preteens from several sites where children are being used for prostitution.
Twenty-five years ago a serial killer attacked and killed three families. Fathers mothers, and children. Except for one little girl, Cara, who survived. Yet, one cannot survive something like that without an impact. Roarke, the FBI agent in charge of the case, turned to law enforcement as a result of those killings. Now he has been searching up and down the west coast in search of her.
The killer is still out there, nursing a wound, waiting for the knowledge of who will be next. But who is it that is giving the instruction? The only way to catch the killer may be to find the monster who killed the three families so many years ago.
To draw in the killer with a sting, Roarke investigates a different serial murder. One in which the father supposedly killed his family, then himself. But when their sting investigation turns out to be suspect in a way they couldn’t imagine, a race is on. Now they must hunt two killers, one of which appears to be hunting them.
Lots of surprise twists are included. It’s a terrific, suspenseful mystery. While I don’t want to give away the plot, you will find yourself sad and conflicted at times, cheering for a miracle outcome, and hoping that “it” can be stopped. But can anyone stop evil?
Book two does leave you wanting and expecting more, and thankfully, we get it in book three, Cold Moon. Part of the story concludes, but an important part of the story is left to resolve. I can’t wait to see how the author handles that. Kudos, Ms. Sokoloff. It’s a very well done series.
