A handsome serial killer. A beautiful amateur sleuth. When their paths cross, only one will survive. Smart. Sexy. Single. And a knack for trouble, either finding it or it finding her. Introducing Pepper Jackson.
In her mid-forties and recently divorced, she’s every bit as tough as she is drop-dead gorgeous. A Neighborhood Watch patroller, member of the Crime Busters book club, and advocate for finding forever homes for shelter pets, Pepper is an active, outspoken member of the community. Although adored by many, some abhor her, eager to see her fail. Or dead.
The Bulls-Eye Killer kidnaps women to torture in a large metal cargo container he calls his murder crate. He binds his victim spread-eagle to a plywood wall overlaid with chain link fencing, paints blue circles—bulls-eyes—on her naked body, then throws Ninja stars at the circles. The Ninja star-throwing torture lasts hours, culminating with an intense round of hatchet throwing, aimed at her heart.
When the Bulls-Eye Killer abducts one of Pepper’s dear friends, Pepper follows the clues, leading her to discover the killer’s shocking true identity.
