There comes a time when you just have to walk away.
Langham has had enough of murder and mayhem. For too many years he’s dealt with the horrors of his job and it’s taking a toll on him. Now he’s got Oliver and is more settled in his private life, he doesn’t need to be married to his job anymore.
Can he divorce himself from it, though? And what else would he do anyway? Like Oliver says, the job is Langham’s life. That’s no longer true—Oliver is his life these days, and Langham wants nothing more than to spend quality time with his lover.
However, crime doesn’t stop just because Langham wants it to, and when a mysterious caller seems intent on drawing Langham into his weird and wicked web, Langham can’t say no. But he can say this is the last case and that he’ll be leaving the force when it’s all wrapped up.
The problem is, The Caller has so many women on his kill list that the case isn’t likely to end any time soon. And The Caller…is he taunting Langham or reaching out for help? As bodies mount up and the calls become more frequent, The Caller realizes he may well be playing a game he should never have started—and that Langham will stop at nothing to bring him to justice.
I have to say that for some reason this book really creeped me out. Not in a bad way but in the way when you are watching a scarey movie and you are scared afterwards so you sleep with the lights on. I have to be honest and say that it is a first for me with a book but Sarah Masters was able to accomplish that.
This is a book that is a bit scarey not because of people jumping out at you or anything like that but because it is so easy to picture and put yourself in the book as a character. It was as if everything that was happening was brought to life on the big screen and I was able to see all of the mystery unfolding right before my eyes.
That is an amazing feet to be able to accomplish a book that is able to suck you into it like that.
This book being part of a series makes me wonder if the other books are the same as this one is considering this is the first book I have read in the series. And I have to admit now I am hooked. I am sure that I should have read the other books first but realistically this book can be read as a stand alone in my opinion because the background and information in this book did not make me feel lost. So I guess now it is time to read the others in the series and wait on pins and needles for the next book in the series to come out. I can’t wait!! Great job Sarah Masters on an amazing book.
Sarah Masters is one of three pen names I write under. Sarah mainly writes m/m. Natalie Dae writes het erotica, while the third, Charley Oweson, writes thriller/horror/suspense books with no sex.
