Forensic psychologist Sophia Channing nearly lost her life to a serial killer. Fortunately, her own quick thinking—and Division of Criminal Investigation agent Cam Prescott’s efforts—rescued her from a horrifying fate. Together, Sophia and Cam jailed the sadistic predator and closed the case on his reign of terror.
But when teenagers make a gruesome discovery in the Iowa woods, Sophia and Cam realize they’ve only scratched the surface of an evil that runs even deeper and deadlier than one madman’s twisted desires. And they don’t come more twisted than the killer known as the Zombie Lover: Vance’s mystery accomplice, who’s still at large and stacking up bodies. With the law snapping at his heels and private demons screaming in his head, the Zombie Lover is hell-bent on carrying out a desperate, double-edged mission. He’s determined to terminate Sophia, then target medical examiner Lucy Benally, who he’s vowed to make his own…dead or alive.
Despite the arrest of the killer responsible for the women’s murders, Cam Prescott and Sophia Channing discover that they’ve only scratched the surface of the case, when it slowly becomes clear that a team of sadistic murders has been on the prowl. And the other one is still at large and more horrifyingly, involved in necrophilia. Touching Evil picks up where the first book leaves off and as sceptical as I was of the first, I was creepily enthralled by the second. Kylie Brant deftly juggles police procedural with the romantic suspense – there’s even a secondary romance involving a second couple – and with a couple of unexpected twists and turns, expertly sets up the plot for the third book.
