The woods hide a deep dark secret, but no secret ever goes unpunished.

Tate Echo, former FBI profiler, is trying to put the past behind him. A broken marriage drove him away from the woman and job he loved and sent him to the mysterious Black Hills to lick his wounds. Taking a job in his sleepy home town of Pine Ridge, South Dakota, he is far away from the big city problems and twisted killers he once stalked – or so he thinks. 

One night changes everything as a local elementary school teacher is raped and mutilated and a dangerous killer makes his presence known. Now, with his job on the line and rumors as to the real reason he left the FBI, Tate must find some answers – even if that means opening old wounds. 

When a second body is found, confirming a serial killer, Tate calls in FBI SSA Emma Gage - Echo, expert profiler and his ex-wife. Though they have unfinished business to be settled between them, they must set aside their feelings and focus on finding the killer as a second and then third body is found. 

Discovering that the killer is finding his victims among geocachers, Emma makes the decision to use herself as bait, ignoring Tate’s protest. One dark night will decide their fate – to have a chance at a future or end it all at the hand of a ruthless killer.

Sins of the Blood (Sister Frevisse Medieval Mysteries)
UK Link


Witchcraft has come to the peaceful village near St. Frideswide, and its foul touch is striking down those closest to the church. Can Dame Frevisse thwart the servants of the devil before the hellfire of hysteria sears the souls of the faithful? Or is there more to this magic than meets the eye?


Cisily Fisher has died in childbirth and now the village of Priors Byfield is held in a grip of fear. Can Dame Frevisse find the root of misery behind a murderer's sin before the next lethal blow falls? Or will the village be lost in a hue and cry of terror? The gentling touch of the midwife may calm the tortured soul... or give birth to a bitter death.


When Frevisse is given bishop-pardoned leave to visit her cousin Alice at Ewelme, she is enchanted by the work of the sculptor Simon Maye. But Simon is enchanted by the beauty of Elyn, one of Alice's ladies in waiting. Clandestine meetings have given way to sinful lust, and now the two lovers have disappeared. The servants whisper that the lovers have eloped, and secretly pine for the passion to do the same. Lady Alice believes her sculptor has been stolen away by jealous rivals and rages at the injustice. But Frevisse alone suspects there may be some darker truth behind the midnight vanishing...


And so we turn to St. Frideswide's in rural northern Oxfordshire. Imaginary, yes, but fully realized as an ordinary place much like many others common across England in both rural and urban settings by the 1400s. A wealthy widow founded it in the 1300s, saw to its beginning, and endowed it with lands and other income to sustain it - alas, not so fully as she intended to do before she died...
