FBI consultant Esmeralda Stuart's marriage is failing. The time when her family was held hostage by a serial killer continually haunts them. She arrives home one evening to find a crime writer in her living room. He wants to dredge up her past so he can finish his book. Esme is not amused. But the link between the old killer and a new predator could be the key to the Bureau's manhunt.

Cain42 runs a website for wannabe serial killers. His students are ready to learn from the master, taking in any tricks he can offer. Esme knows she may have to cross the line and possibly give up her whole life to stop this predator from killing any more. When Cain42 throws out a challenge to his students to go on a killing spree as a contest, Esme knows she has no choice but to stop it.

Wow what a book! It's fast paced, with suspense and action throughout. The author's imagination has taken me on an unforgettable journey. In fact the first chapters gave me nightmares. Before Cain Strikes is a must read for sure.
