Overview

In Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh's edgy new thriller, Louisa Hancock thought she was safe...but there's a new killer in town.

When a mysterious package lands on Louisa Hancock's doorstep, the Philadelphia museum curator can hardly anticipate the nightmare that's about to envelop her. The package is addressed to her father--an expert in Viking culture--and inside is a ninth-century sword, a chilling thank-you note, and photos of two dead bodies in a tableau evoking a Nordic funeral. The gruesome images match a recent crime scene. But before the police can investigate the killer's connection to Louisa's father, Ward Hancock vanishes.

Sports bar owner Conor Sullivan wants nothing more than to spend his life with Louisa. Devoted and protective, he refuses to leave her side after her father's disappearance. When a troubled young boxer he's been coaching is suspected of the murders, Conor is pulled in even deeper. Desperate, Louisa and Conor take it upon themselves to find her father, but soon another ritualistic slaying makes it clear there's a Viking-obsessed serial killer on the loose. And he has a new target: Louisa.

Leighs fourth Midnight contemporary romantic thriller (after Midnight Betrayal) will excite readers with its puzzling mysteries and toe-curling romance. In Philadelphia, museum curator Louisa Hancock and sports bar owner Conor Sullivan hope that life is returning to normal after a nightmarish couple of months. Then Louisas father, a scholar of Viking history, is kidnapped after he receives a package containing a ninth-century sword, a confusing thank-you note, and a gruesome photograph of a ritual killing. And Conor is targeted by a vengeful gang when he protects Jordan, a troublesome teenager. Conor wants nothing more than to keep Louisa out of danger; Louisa is headstrong and smart, and she convinces Conor that they work best together. Despite police investigations, the violence escalates. A deadly showdown requires Conor to use all of his fighting talent, and Louisa must dig deep into her own skills to save all that is important to her. The intimacy between the couple, seamless inclusion of Norse mythology, precise storytelling, windows into the killers mind, and surprise ending all heighten the enjoyment. The novel is easily read as a standalone, but returning readers will get more out of it. Agent: Jill Marsal, Marsal Lyon Literary. (Jan.)
