Curator Dr. Louisa Hancock left behind Maine and her troubled past for Philadelphia and a job at a prominent museum. Just when it seems that Louisa’s new life is safe from her dark secrets, the body of a museum intern is found—the victim of a brutal and baffling murder.
Louisa realizes this is no random crime. And when another intern goes missing, the abduction is linked to the only man who has ever tempted Louisa’s heart—Conor Sullivan, the sexy owner of a Philly sports bar. Louisa’s past has taught her to be wary, but her heart refuses to believe Conor is guilty.
Now Conor and Louisa must dodge a police investigation—and their growing desire—as they race to find the real killer before another girl turns up dead. But trusting Conor could be deadly, especially as the evidence against him mounts…and as a merciless killer targets Louisa as the next victim.
Louisa Hancock and Conor Sullivan reunite in the latest and possibly the most compelling of the Midnight series when a brutal murder of an intern occurs after the theft of an artefact replica. From here onwards, it’s a series of twists and turns in the plot as Louisa and Conor find their way back to each other amidst the growing danger.
Beautifully written with relentless action and breathless suspense, I was certainly thrown for a huge loop when the killer was finally revealed. After the disappointment of ‘Midnight Sacrifice’, I was thrilled with both Louisa and Conor and loved how their story developed throughout the book – kudos to Leigh for making 2 people from 2 very different worlds come together in a way that I found poignant and believable.
Definitely a keeper and something I’d be going back to read again…and again.
