Detective Seth Banning searches for one of the most heinous serial killers of all time. Seth is desperate to find the sadistic murderer who takes his female victims two at a time, and switches their heads. Elaina von Hagan is on the run from the drug trafficking father she has exposed. As she and Seth begin a relationship, she becomes a target for the serial killer's deranged ritual. The stakes have never been higher for Seth as Elaina is taken, and the stage is set for a gruesome showdown between good and evil.
Secret pasts, serial killers, and a blossoming relationship share center stage in this spine tingling suspense book. Readers, beware. This book may have you up all night, checking your doors and jumping at the slightest sound!
The hero is Seth. He's a cop, working a case that follows the killings of a possible serial killer. He seems to have his share of heartache and a past that he can't escape. He makes for a great leading male role. I was drawn to him, and respected his character.
We're introduced to the hero, Laney. She's also got a shady past, like she's running from something. She's smart, stubborn and sweet. The attraction between Laney and Seth sizzle from first contact, and I loved following along as their romance unfolded. So many things stood in this couple's way....
The suspense is intense! Readers get a glimpse into the killer's point of view, and wow, what a sick and twisted mindset this author created for the villain. As I read on, more and more clues were given, but the ending and revealing I never would have guessed in a million years! This book is filled with top notch intrigue. As usual with my reading, I read it late at night and yes, I was jumpy at sounds. My pulse quickened a few times with some scenes and I was left with a satisfied feeling after the last page was read. Ms. Foley sure knows the craft of writing a romantic suspense, and I'm interested to read what else this author has to offer. The story is well written, although there are a few spots with editing errors, such as a name put in there that wasn't the character's name in the scene. Other than that, I enjoyed the book and couldn't put it down!
If you like serial killer romantic suspense, love a good thrill, then Switched in Death is waiting for you. Try it, if you dare, and allow yourself to be sucked into this thrill ride of a novel.
