Release Date:

Christian Psychological Thriller

On a remote Outer Banks island, a serial killer collects his prized specimens. And to stop him, an FBI agent must confront his own twisted past. 

FBI agent Tiberius Granger has seen his share of darkness. But a new case sets him on edge. It’s not just the macabre way both victims—found posed in front of lighthouses—are tattooed with flowers that match their names. There’s also the unsettling connection to the woman Ty once loved and to the shadowy cult they both risked everything to escape. 

Bexley Hemmingway’s sister has gone missing, and she’ll do anything to find her—including teaming up with Ty. That may prove a mistake, and not just because Ty doesn’t know he’s the father of her teenaged son. It seems the killer is taunting Ty, drawing everyone close to him into deeper danger. 

As the slashing winds and rain of a deadly hurricane approach the coast of North Carolina, the search leads Ty and Bex to an island that hides a grisly secret. But in his quest for the truth, Ty has ignored the fact that this time, he’s not just the hunter. Every move has been orchestrated by a killer into a perfect storm of terror, and they will need all their skills to survive…  

My thoughts: I have enjoyed the previous books in this series, so I was looking forward to finally figuring out what Ty's story was, since it had been alluded to in the previous books that he had some ties to a cult. This story did not disappoint! It was hard to put down, since I just had to know what was going to happen! Jessica Patch does a wonderful job, with driving the story from both Ty's point of view and one of the Garden Girls. With a hurricane coming in, Ty feels like time is against him.

It's so hard to write a review about a story like this one, since there were so many twists and turns to the mystery, and I don't want to give anything away! If you like true crime and reading stories that take some work to unravel, then I highly recommend picking this book! While it can be enjoyed as a stand alone, the characters from the previous books are involved, so I recommend reading the whole series. Trust me, they are all wonderful and well worth the read! 

I received this book from Just Read. This is my honest reveiw.
