A predator is on the hunt. An aggressive monster who preys on a specific type of victim. Female. Police. Officers.
The heart-stopping thriller that "has everything--murder, intrigue, scandal, friendship, and a tough-as-nails heroine. Prepare yourself for the roller coaster ride that is Dead Center."
For San Francisco Sex Crimes Inspector Jamie Vail, no case has ever hit closer to home.
The brutalized women are her colleagues. Her friends. Her job is everything. Divorced and alone, Jamie vows to end the violence and capture this deranged criminal. Nothing else matters.
Within days of the latest attack, a female police officer is murdered and Jamie's ex-husband is the primary suspect.
She shouldn't care. She tells herself she doesn't... until she learns that the details of the murder are eerily similar to the case she is working.
Jamie realizes the killer and her predator may be one and the same.
Now, Jamie must confront her past and solve the murder of her ex-husband's lover to stop a serial rapist. But he has Jamie in his sights and time is running out before she becomes the killer's ultimate prize.
