Book Review: Edge of Midnight

The writer becomes the story when crime reporter Mia Hale is discovered on a Jacksonville beach—bloodied and disoriented, but alive. She remembers nothing, but her wounds bear the signature of a sadistic serial killer. After years lying dormant, The Collector has resumed his grim hobby: abducting women and taking gruesome souvenirs before dumping their bodies. But none of his victims has ever escaped—and he wants Mia back, more than he ever wanted any of the others.

FBI agent Eric MacFarlane has pursued The Collector for a long time. The case runs deep in his veins, bordering on obsession…and Mia holds the key. She'll risk everything to recover her memory and bring the madman to justice, and Eric swears to protect this fierce, fragile survivor. But The Collector will not be denied. In his mind, he knows just how their story ends.

EDGE OF MIDNIGHT has to be one of the creepiest romantic suspenses that I have ever read.  And I mean that in all the nicest ways. 

This book hits all the right spots: a beautiful plucky heroine, a hero who has tragedy in his background, great secondary characters, a beautiful location, great pacing and snappy dialogue.  What raises it above the norm is how deep Ms. Tentler delves into the psyche of her villain.  He is such an ordinary man but pure evil.  I had shivers going down my spine during several points in  this book.

I recommend this book to anyone that loves romantic suspense.  It is a not to be missed read.  I rate this book a 4.75.

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
