### Description

*He lurks in the shadows, waiting and watching . . . And once he has you, all you can do is. . .*

**BEG FOR MERCY**

Megan Flynn thought she was falling in love. Cole Williams wasn't just handsome and passionate, he was one of the good guys. Or so she thought, until he arrested her brother-the only family she has left-for a murder she knows he couldn't have possibly committed. Now, with her heart broken and her brother's life hanging in the balance, Megan will risk everything to prove his innocence. Even if that means throwing herself into the path of a sadistic killer with a hauntingly familiar MO.

Seattle Detective Cole Williams had given up on making Megan see reason where her brother is concerned. But when she insinuates herself into the most shockingly brutal case Cole has ever worked, he can't stand idly by. Plunged into a secret world where the city's elite indulge their darkest desires, Cole will do whatever it takes to bring down a madman who has made Megan his most coveted prey.

MY THOUGHTS

LOVED IT

***slight spoilers***

Megan's brother Sean has been arrested for a murder that she knows he didn't commit. The worse part is that he is arrested by Cole, a man that Megan thought she had a future with and now she is out for justice. That puts Megan right on the trail of a sadistic serial killer and possibly in his path. After years in jail, Sean has given up hope that he can be cleared of the crime, but Megan has no intention of giving up. She uncovers new evidence and that puts her on the trial with more conviction now that a series of murders have occurred that are strikingly similar to the murder that Sean was sent to jail for. Cole is increasingly persuaded to see the new evidence as that Sean was framed and helps Megan find the truth.

PERFECT! Every character and situation is believable and you can just imagine reading this story on the front page of any paper. The chemistry between Megan and Cole really builds as they work together to solve the murder even though Cole believes Sean is really guilty. I love Megan's strength and her conviction that her brother is innocent. The fact that she is a court advocate gives her the background and knowledge of legal procedure helps her cause and her intelligence shines. I also adored the dialog and how Alden sets the scene with just a few key words. I am looking forward to hearing Sean's side of the story in Hide From Evil which will be released next fall.
