Taylor Jackson has a huge problem on her hands. A completely psychotic serial killer, nicknamed The Pretender, has a crush on her. That's the best way I can state it.
He's been killing for years, imitating a different famous serial killer for a string of slaughters, then moving on to his next "hero". He has never been caught.
But Taylor has caught his eye and he strives to impress her with his "talents". She has so far been unimpressed. So he's upped the game in his attempt to woo her.
Besides taking her partner/father figure, holding him long enough to have a little torture party before setting him free missing an eye, he's trained a team of serial killers who are now all over the country going on killing sprees, all in his name.
Will Taylor be able to find and stop The Pretender before it's too late for her, or the many victims being used to impress her? Will she be able to stop his entire team of killers that are loose and looking for their next kill?
A very good mystery/murder story with enough carnage to make you wince but enough plot and strong character development to make you hang in there to find out the end result.
