Hunger Moon now available for review!

I'm very excited to announce that Hunger Moon is now available on Netgalley. Special Agent Matthew Roarke and mass killer Cara Lindstrom return - in Book 5 of the Huntress/FBI Thrillers. College rapists better watch their backs.

Blogger/Reviewers, please message me for the direct link or a pdf!  alex AT alexandrasokoloff DOT com

                    Out October 24, 2017 in print, ebook and audio. Pre-order here.

This really is a series that needs to be read in order, starting with the Thriller Award-nominated, Voice Arts Award-winning Huntress Moon,  so if you're a reviewer and need to catch up with the series, just message me or email and I'll get you whichever books you need in whatever format.

In the new book, Roarke and his FBI team are forced to confront the new political reality when they are pressured to investigate a series of mysterious threats vowing death to college rapists... while deep in the Arizona wilderness, mass killer Cara Lindstrom is fighting a life-and-death battle of her own.
You'll find out what's been happening with some of the other characters while Roarke was off in the desert in Bitter Moon. It's - complicated.

As always, you're in for a road trip: the book takes Roarke and Cara (not together!) to the canyons of Arizona; the wealthy coastal enclave of Santa Barbara; the gorgeous campus of my alma mater, UC Berkeley; the Santa Ynez wine country; and the surreal desert wasteland of the Salton Sea.

And speaking of surreal - there's the political... roller coaster. Imagine trying to write a realistic contemporary FBI series with all of the current madness going on. (Actually, imagine how hard it is to write ANYTHING with all of the current madness going on. My publishers had to ask me if they could move the book out a month because none of the authors who had deadlines before me had gotten their books in on time. Yeah. That bad.)

So no, I haven't backed off from writing about the unreality of it all, and I'm not sorry. I know that readers are already loving this book for telling it like it is. I'm also anticipating death threats. (Like that's anything worse that what's happening everywhere.) I will happily repost and distribute any trolling and disgruntled emails to all relevant media, so bring it on. :)

Best of all, no matter what Betsy DeVos is trying to do, or undo, some college rapists are going to learn that no matter what complicit judges or moronic Secretaries of Education say - they're not going to get away with it any more.

                                       ----------------- SPOILERS ---------------

Special Agent Matthew Roarke is back from his desert sojurn to head an FBI task force with one mission: to rid society of its worst predators.

But when the skeletal symbols of Santa Muerte, “Lady Death,” mysteriously appear at universities nationwide, threatening death to rapists, Roarke’s team is pressured to investigate. Then a frat boy goes missing in Santa Barbara, and Roarke knows a bloodbath is coming.

Meanwhile, avenging angel Cara Lindstrom is in hiding in the Arizona wilderness, still on her own ruthless quest - until an old enemy comes after both her and the FBI team, forcing her back into Roarke’s orbit. This time, the huntress has become the hunted . . .
