My entire life vanished the day I found my parents’ bodies.
It changed me, broke me, and I went from a bestselling author to a ghost writer hiding behind my words…
Then an assignment pairs me with a new detective on a high-profile murder case.
But things spiral out of control as bodies start piling up—a cruel reminder of a past I’m desperate to forget. As the case develops, so does my attraction to the lead detective.
The more we piece together the puzzle, it becomes clear the killings won’t stop…not until I’ve whispered my last word.
When I left my past behind to become lead detective at the Syracuse Police Department, I didn’t anticipate being handed my first serial killer case, and I sure as hell never expected to be working with an attractive woman.
Spencer and I dissect every clue and struggle to predict the killer’s next move, but he’s always one step ahead of us in this twisted game of cat and mouse. It’s only a matter of time before the killer claims his next victim.
And if he does…I lose everything.
Behind My Words was the first book I've read from Drake and I have to say that it was a great start to what I hope is a continuing reader relationship. I was hooked on this story from page one, intrigued by Spencer and her past and of course the present as well.
Behind My Words was full of twists and turns, mystery, suspense, and angles I could never have imagined coming into play and yet I ran forward with each new piece of information, theories abounding in my mind and a fascination to figure it all out before the characters did.
I loved the themes within this book, the serial killer, the cop and the ghostwriter - not at all who you'd expect them to be nor their motivations and yet each little piece fit the overall picture building with each flip of the page.
This book had my heart racing, my head spinning, and occasionally made me hold my breath, and yet I couldn't put it down, I had to know what was next.
If you are looking for a suspenseful wild ride of a story to suck you in from the first word to the last, pick up your copy to day and enjoy the many twists you'll find among the pages.
