One by one, they will die. He has waited patiently, planning their final moments. Their tortured screams, their pleas for mercy--all will be in vain. . . And Hope. . .
Homicide detective Julia Cass has witnessed plenty of crime scenes. But the murder of a Chattanooga judge is shocking in its brutality. Teamed with FBI agent Will Brannock, Julia delves into an investigation that soon unearths more bodies--all mutilated in the same way, all left with a gruesome souvenir of a killer's ruthless rage. . . To Die. . .
The only way to stop the slaughter is to predict the next victim. But when you're dealing with vengeance at its most ruthless, one wrong move can make you a target. . .and the next word you utter could be your last. . . Praise for the novels of Beverly Barton

The late Barton (1946–2011) returns to Chattanooga and the characters of 2010’s Don’t Cry for her solid final romantic suspense novel. Once again, a serial killer is loose in the city, and the investigators at the center are Tennessee Bureau of Investigation special agent Will Brannock and recently relocated cop Julia Cass (sister of the first book’s hero, J.D.). The hunt for the creepy killer—dubbed the “Tongue Slasher” in the press due to his gruesome techniques—is balanced against the romantic tension between Will and Julia. Will has a dark past, and that plus Julia’s first impression of him as a womanizer keep the mutually attracted law officers apart. Barton neatly juggles multiple points of view, carrying forward plot lines from the previous book as well as expanding the potential pool of suspects. Some of the characterizations fall a bit flat, but Barton keeps things moving too quickly to let the occasional bump interfere with the core story. Agent: Richard Curtis, Richard Curtis Associates.
