Private Investigator Candice Shane had a good reason for breaking up with her university boyfriend Alex Delaney five years ago. His career choice after graduation as a police officer was dangerous. She knew this personally after her parents, both cops, died by the same loathsome gunmen when she was only eight. But Candice wasn't expecting her easy job of asking questions and simple surveillance to be just as hazardous.
DetectiveAlex Delaney understands Candice's job. His love for her keeps him standing beside her while he'd rather stand in front of her to keep her safe from a maniac strangler who seeks out vulnerable women. Three bodies in three weeks and they still have no solid clues. Candice is brought in on the investigation as a consultant, but it brings her to the killer's attention. Now it's a race against time before he can claim another victim, and before Alex loses his love to the Silk Strangler.
