Kill one serial killer and along comes another. Freak is Jennifer Hillier's follow-up to her thrilling debut, Creep, which featured serial killer Ethan Wolfe. This time someone is murdering high priced escorts and afterwards carving, 'Free Abby Maddox' on their backs.

Abby Maddox was Ethan's long-time girlfriend. She's serving a nine year sentence in a maximum security prison for attempting to murder a private investigator involved in tracking down Ethan. Private investigator Jerry Isaac has every reason to want Maddox to stay there, so why should he agree to her request to visit her in prison? Because Abby has agreed to help authorities to find the new serial killer, who seems to be her number one fan.

Finding the murderer is Detective Mike Torrance's primary concern even if it means providing Maddox with compensation by allowing her to move to a low-security facility. Professor Shelia Taos, recovering sex addict, also returns in Freak. Maddox plays her as well.

This thriller will keep you turning pages long after bedtime. Hillier introduces you to a new kind of serial killer. Although Freak could be enjoyed without first reading Creep, the books are connected so read Creep first if possible.
