For three years, Michael O'Shea has been forced to act as a personal assassin for Livingston Shaw, the cold-blooded puppet master who controls the remote bioweapon implanted in Michael's back. When Shaw offers to release him if he can recover a kidnapped child, Michael works with every ounce of his being to put the pieces together before all the witnesses are murdered.

Meanwhile, police Inspector Sabrina Vaughn--the woman Michael passionately loves but has been kept from seeing--discovers the body of a little boy that bears a striking resemblance to the missing child. Against all his instincts, Michael must draw Sabrina into his life as one of the world's most notorious assassins if he's to overcome the legacy of his bloodthirsty past.

4/5 (Very Good)

*I received a copy of this book from Book Chatter Cath in exchange for a fair and honest review.*

Overall, this was a good story. It was thrilling and kept you guessing at every turn. It was one of those stories that left you on the edge of your seat, thinking you knew what was going to happen, when you really had no clue. There were an insane amount of details that the author did a great job of providing, making the story line even more exciting to read and follow. I can’t say that there was a lack of detail or lack of explanation in the story at all.
One complaint I have is that at times it was hard to associate between Michael and Ben as they were talking or as certain things were happening within a scene where they were both present. I found myself having to re-read certain parts because I thought it was one character that was speaking but it was another. This made it hard to read and keep a steady pace going.  As this affected my reading of the story, that’s the reason it is a 4 star instead of a 5 star.
I would recommend this story to you to read, absolutely. I’d give yourself a little more time to read the story in case there are parts with the dialogue that confuse you so you can go back and re-read it. It really does make all the difference and makes the story that much better. This author has the ability to write a story that will give you goosebumps and tingles as you read.

Carved in Darkness (Book #1)

Past horrors bleed into a present day nightmare

Fifteen years ago, a psychotic killer abducted seventeen year old Melissa Walker. For 83 days she was raped and tortured before being left for dead in a deserted church yard... But she was still alive.

Melissa begins a new life as homicide inspector, Sabrina Vaughn. With a new face and a new name, it's her job to hunt down murderers and it's a job she does very well.

When Michael O'Shea, a childhood acquaintance with a suspicious past, suddenly finds her, he brings to life the nightmare Sabrina has long since buried.

Believing that his sister was recently murdered by the same monster who attacked Sabrina, Michael is dead set on getting his revenge--using Sabrina as bait.
