A Cold Dark Place (Cold Justice #1) by Toni Anderson ~ Book Review

A Cold Dark Place
Cold Justice Series
Author: Toni Anderson
Genre: Romantic Suspense


She’s an FBI agent hunting her sister’s killer. He’s an assassin who’ll die to keep her safe.

But his secret will destroy them both.

FBI agent Mallory Rooney spent the last eighteen years searching for her identical twin sister’s abductor. With a serial killer carving her sister’s initials into the bodies of his victims, Mallory thinks she may finally have found him.

Former soldier Alex Parker is a highly decorated but damaged war hero with a secret—he’s a covert government assassin who hunts predators. Now he’s looking into the murders too.

When danger starts to circle Mallory, Alex is forced out of the shadows to protect her and they must race against the clock to find the killer. But the lies and betrayals that define Alex’s life threaten to destroy them both—especially when the man who stole her sister all those years ago, makes Mallory his next target.

FBI Special Agent Mallory Rooney has been trying to find the person (or people) that kidnapped her twin sister when they were just nine years old, while she is on a case she becomes suspicious that there may be a vigilante killer out there as well as a serial killer.

Alex Parker worked for the CIA but now he works for a clandestine government organization that takes out serial killers and pedophiles before they enter the justice system. He is also one of the owners of a high tech security company.

I was really sucked into the story right from the start and while I knew it was a Romantic Suspense I was surprised at how Steamy it was...not sure why since I do like my books steamy but I think I was so into the story and the chase that the romance part of it was secondary especially since both Alex and Mallory were so into their jobs it left little time for anything else. But I totally enjoyed it all!

The Dual POV was great but the real treat was the third one, YES we get into the killer's mind as well for a Third POV.  This story was fast paced with lots of action, steamy times, and a wonderful cast of secondary characters. This was my first book by Toni Anderson and I'm hooked! I added all of the books in this series to my TBR shelf and I am THRILLED that I will get more of Alex and Mallory in A COLD DARK PROMISE.

I would recommend this book to those that enjoy Steamy Romantic Suspense Reads, Law Enforcement, Former Military, or Serial Killer Thrillers. And for an extra layer of immersing yourself into the book I would recommend purchasing the audiobook, the narration by  Eric G. Dove was really well done.

Happy Reading!!!
