Book Review: The Heart of a Killer

No one said coming home would be easy. But for Dante Renaldi, it’s murder.
 Before the Special Forces hero has even unpacked his bags from twelve years of active duty, he’s embroiled in murder—corpses bearing the brutal trademark he’s seen only once before—on the worst night of his life.

The last time Detective Anna Pallino saw Dante Renaldi, they were in love. Now, he’s part of the connection to a string of fresh homicides and a horrible assault that Anna only survived thanks to him. 

More than anything, Anna wants to trust Dante. But as the bodies and the coincidences stack up, Anna will have to decide, and fast: Is the man she owes her life to the very same one who wants her dead?

I have really been craving a good romantic suspense and that is just what I got with THE HEART OF A KILLER.  Ms. Burton is at the top of her game weaving danger, tension, fear, loss and love into a tale that you won't want to put down.  It's that police procedural with that added wild card of Dante throw into the mix.

The story is tight, the pacing is excellent.  And it had an ending that even surprised me and that doesn't happen all that often.  I highly recommend  THE HEART OF A KILLER to any reader that loves romantic suspense.  And if you haven't read Ms. Burton's backlist I also recommend doing so.

I rate this book a 4.5.

I did receive this book from NetGallery in exchange for the review.  No money exchanged hands and all opinions are my own.
