First Line: The girl is waking up.
Most people would argue that the most dangerous predators in Torrance, Florida, are the alligators. However, that was before a serial killer appeared to have arrived in town. No one really noticed when a runaway teenage girl disappeared; however when the pretty and popular Liana Martin is found murdered, the town goes into a panic. As the Sheriff, John Weber, digs into the cases he does not like what secrets he is finding out about his little town.
This is the first book by Joy Fielding that I have read, and trust me, this will not be the only book I ever read!! I really enjoyed this one a lot!! And believe me, when you get to the end you will be pleasantly surprised by who the bad guy is in this book!! I really can’t say enough good things about this book – give it a try if you haven’t already!! 🙂

I love Joy Fielding! You have to read Whispers and Lies. It was great and really threw me through a loop. I look forward to reading more of your reviews!
I enjoy Fielding’s work as well; haven’t read this one, but she always has a great ‘suprise’ ending…
I just read this one recently but haven’t had a chance to post a review yet. I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed this so much. The only other book that I could recommend by her is Charley’s Web which is really good too!
