FBI Special Agent Matthew Roarke is closing in on a bust of a major criminal organization in San Francisco when he witnesses an undercover member of his team killed right in front of him on a busy street, an accident Roarke can't believe is coincidental. His suspicions put him on the trail of a mysterious young woman who appears to have been present at each scene of a years-long string of "accidents" and murders, and who may well be that most rare of killers: a female serial.

Roarke's hunt for her takes him across three states...while in a small coastal town, a young father and his five-year old son, both wounded from a recent divorce, encounter a lost and compelling young woman on the beach and strike up an unlikely friendship without realizing how deadly she may be.

As Roarke uncovers the shocking truth of her background, he realizes she is on a mission of her own, and must race to capture her before more blood is shed.

Book II in the Huntress/FBI series, Blood Moon, is also available $3.99 (2.45 UK)

Twenty-five years have passed since a savage killer terrorized California, massacring three ordinary families before disappearing without a trace.

The haunted child who was the only surviving victim of his rampage is now wanted by the FBI  for brutal crimes of her own, and Special Agent Matthew Roarke is on an interstate manhunt for her, despite his conflicted sympathies for her history and motives.

But when his search for her unearths evidence of new family slayings, the dangerous woman Roarke seeks - and wants - may be his only hope of preventing another bloodbath.

And the audiobook of Huntress Moon is also available, narrated by multiple Audie Award nominee RC Bray.


And this is the last chance to get these two books at these prices, because Thomas & Mercer, Amazon's mystery and thriller imprint, has bought the rights to the series, and is going to re-launch all three Huntress books in January - including the world premiere of Cold Moon.

I truly, deeply apologize for the long wait for Cold Moon. Believe me, it's hard for me, too! But this is the difference between a traditional publishing schedule and the freedom of indie publishing - it takes a lot longer to get all the gears in motion. As a devoted binge TVwatcher, I fully understand and am 100% behind the strategy of launching the three books together as a binge read. Thomas & Mercer really gets the uniqueness of the series and I know they'll be awesome at marketing.  And I'm thrilled that the series will be able to reach a much larger audience. I think the stories and characters deserve that.

I've reached a happy point that I have so many books out that it's hard to manage all of them on my own and still have the time I need to be doing the most important thing: writing. Letting Thomas & Mercer handle the Huntress series will - hopefully - free up some time for me to launch the new series I'm working on (which I refer to as "the Scottish book") as well as continue the Huntress series with Book 4, which will be available soon after Cold Moon.  And Huntress Moon and Blood Moon will remain available for purchase up until the relaunch.

Thanks for your patience! I think Cold Moon will be worth it.
