KISS THE GIRLS AND MAKE THEM DIE

Lucy Kincaid has firsthand experience dealing with deadly criminal predators, and she's fully prepared to share her many talents with the FBI. But when her career plans are derailed, her boyfriend, security expert Sean Rogan, asks for help on his latest private investigation. Using her well-honed cyber-hunting skills, Lucy is soon on the trail of a missing teenage girl with a penchant for disappearing—and a shocking secret life.
FBI Agent Suzanne Madeaux is also tracking someone: a serial killer on the loose in New York City. Dubbed by the press the Cinderella Strangler, he cruises seamy underground sex parties, where drug-fueled women make for easy pickings. As Lucy and Sean's desperate search collides with the FBI's hunt, Lucy isn't about to step aside. Haunted by painful memories of her own harrowing encounters with evil, she's determined to keep any more innocents from meeting the fate she so narrowly escaped. Delving deep into the twisted psyche of a remorseless killer, Lucy must confront her own fears—even if it means risking a future job with the FBI and future happiness with Sean.

Excerpts-
  • Chapter One

    As the cold wind whipped around her, FBI agent Suzanne Madeaux lifted the corner of the yellow crime-scene tarp covering the dead girl and swore under her breath.

    Jane Doe was somewhere between sixteen and twenty, her blond hair streaked with pink highlights. The teenager's party dress was also pink, and Suzanne absently wondered if she changed her highlights to match her outfit. There was no outward sign of sexual assault or an apparent cause of death. Still, there was no doubt that this was another victim of the killer Suzanne had been tasked to stop.

    Jane Doe wore only one shoe.

    Dropping the tarp, Suzanne surveyed the scene, trying in vain to keep her long, dark-blond hair out of her face. The relentless wind howled across the cracked, weed-infested parking lot of the abandoned warehouse in Brooklyn. It had also felled a couple of trees nearby; small branches and sticks skittered across the pavement. That wind most likely had destroyed any evidence not inside Jane Doe's body.

    Though the corpse didn't appear to be intentionally hidden, waist-high weeds and a small building that had once housed a generator or dumpsters concealed her from any passerby's cursory glance. Suzanne stepped away from the squat structure and looked across the Upper Bay. The tiny Gowanus Bay was to the north, the New Jersey skyline to the west. At night, it would be kind of pretty out here with the city lights across the water, if it weren't so friggin' cold.

    A plainclothes NYPD cop approached with a half-smile that Suzanne wouldn't call friendly. "If it ain't Mad Dog Madeaux. We heard this was one of yours."

    Suzanne rolled her eyes. Even with her eyes closed, she'd recognize Joey Hicks by his grating, intentionally exaggerated New York accent.

    "No secret," she said, making notes to avoid conversation. Hicks wasn't much older than she. Physically fit, he probably thought he was good-looking, considering the swagger. She supposed he had some appeal, but the cocky "all Feds are assholes" attitude he'd displayed the first time they'd met on a murder case had landed him on Suzanne's permanent shit list years ago.

    She looked around for his supervisor, but didn't see Vic Panetta. She'd much rather deal with the senior detective, whom she liked. "Who found the body?" Suzanne asked.

    "Security guard."

    "What's his story?"

    "Found her on his morning rounds, about five-thirty."

    It was eleven now. "Why hasn't the body been taken to the morgue?"

    "No wagon available. Coroner is on the way. Another hour, they say. NYPD doesn't got the resources you Feds got."

    She ignored the slight. "What was the guard doing here last night? Does he patrol more than one building?"

    "Yeah." Hicks looked at his notes. Though Su?zanne didn't like him, he was a decent cop. "He clocked in at four a.m. for a twelve-hour shift. Rotates between vacant properties throughout Sunset Park and around the bay. Says he doesn't stick to a specific schedule, 'cause vandals watch for that."

    "What about the night guard?"

    "Night is either Thompson or Bruzzini. According to the day shift, Bruzzini is a slacker."

    "I need their contact information." She hesitated. Then--remembering her boss's command to be more collegial to NYPD--she added, "I appreciate your help."

    "Did Hell freeze over since the last time we worked a case?" Hicks laughed. "I'll get Panetta; I'm sure he'll want to at least make a show of fighting for jurisdiction." He left, still grinning.

    Suzanne ignored him. There were no jurisdictional issues--after the third similar murder, an FBI--NYPD task force had been formed. Her supervisor was...
