Release Day Review! COLD JUSTICE by Toni Anderson (Cold Justice: Most Wanted #1)

Cold Silence cover

FBI Hostage Rescue Team member Shane Livingstone is frustrated when an injury sidelines him during an operation to catch a sadistic killer. A killer who auctions off vicious ways to torture his victims and screens the events for money on the dark web. When a teammate dies during the op, a devastated Shane vows to track down the monster responsible—but to do so he’ll need access to specialized skills he doesn’t possess.

A bloody game of cat and mouse….

As a white-hat hacker at Alex Parker’s security firm, Yael Brooks knows how to track predators through the darkest recesses of cyberspace. She can’t say no to Shane’s request…even though she fears her own secrets may put her at risk. 

With a serial killer who makes it personal….

Shane and Yael must work together as a team if they hope to stop this psychopath. As they begin to grow closer, Shane demands Yael’s complete trust, but trust is the one thing Yael is reluctant to give. As the chase intensifies and more people die, it becomes obvious that the killer knows exactly who Yael is and plans to make both her and Shane pay the ultimate price for getting in his way.

Review:

Cold Silence, the first book in Toni Anderson‘s new Cold Justice: Most Wanted series, and OMG, what a way to start! I seriously did not want to put this one down…

Yael and Shane’s story is edge-of-your-seat suspense as they try to stop a sadistic killer whose crimes are beyond imagaining (honestly, how does Ms Anderson think of these scenarios? I’m not sure I want to know, but heck yeah I want her to keep on thinking of them…) while, of course, trying to keep their hearts intact.

Naturally, we readers are a little more invested in them being more successful at one of these goals over the other 😉

As usual, Ms Anderson does a masterful job of keeping us in suspense–who is the antagonist? Where (and who) will he strike next? How can Yael, Shane, and the rest of the task force possibly stop him?–giving us just enough to make us think we (and our heroes) *might* finally know what is going on before proving us wrong again. And again. And again…

…until she brings us to the explosive climax–which may or may not actually be explosive this time. I’ll never tell–you’ll have to read it yourself to find out.

You can thank me later 🙂
