No Escape by Mary Burton

Are you ready to meet a serial killer who has secrets?  He has an apprentice; he also has a child he's never had contact with.  Those two people are bound to meet and it will turn out very badly for one of them...

Kensington Books sent me an ARC of this book for review (thank you).  It is being published this month, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

Jolene is a divorced psychologist.  She's a good one, too.  She tries to help the young prostitutes get out of the life, helps them find homes for their children or a means of raising them.  She also works with cops on cases they are trying to solve.

Nothing prepared her for finding Brody in the gym looking up at her.  He's her ex-husband, a Ranger, and still very good looking.  It's fourteen years later and she's not 18 anymore.  She wants no relationship with him, or does she?

The further Jolene gets into the case of a serial killer, the more she wonders if he might not be her father.  She doesn't look like her sister or father or mother.  Her mother refuses to talk about it, but she knows it's a secret from the past.  She also doesn't want to be related to a serial killer.

The story is fast paced and tense and I was easily drawn in to Jolene's fears.  The author gives you more than one suspect and more than one murderer.  Trying to figure out who the apprentice was is a challenge.

Give it a try, you won't be bored.
