Kylie Brant – Cold Dark Places

From the bestselling author of Pretty Girls Dancing comes a shattering serial-killer thriller about revenge, deliverance, and survival.

Cady Maddix survived a brutal upbringing – emotionally scarred but hardened – with a will for self-preservation. Hunting fugitives has given her life purpose and control. But when the Deputy US Marshal returns home to care for her Alzheimers-stricken mother, a new case stirs old memories.

Child killer Samuel Aldeen has broken out of a nearby facility for the criminally insane, and the authorities believe he was aided by accomplices, both inside and out. Enlisted to track him down, Cady follows an unexpected lead. Her name is Eryn Pullman, a young woman recently released from a neighboring psychiatric facility, a mentally fragile survivor of childhood abuse, and Aldeens next designated victim.

To save Eryns life, Cady must work fast to uncover the unimaginable link between predator and prey – even as it pulls her into the cold dark places of her own past.

Author Kylie Brant has moved from her long history of writing romance novels to writing in the mystery/thriller genre. This is the first novel of hers I have read but it will not be the last. In COLD DARK PLACES protagonist and Deputy US Marshall Cady Maddix has real issues in her past including killing a man when she was a child. She is now an experienced law enforcement officer.

This is an outstanding novel with excellent narration.
