Love hurts.

While FBI agent Kelly Feinman is recovering from an attack by a serial killer called the "Acid Man," her husband leaves her. Physically and emotionally scarred by the murderer, Kelly feels she will never be the same. She is cut off not only from her husband and child, but also from her fellow FBI agents, who see her as a rogue for going after the Acid Man alone.

Love is hell.

Matt Connor’s love for his girlfriend, Amy, is so intense that he feels he is in heaven when he is with her. When Amy leaves him for another man, Matt is shattered. In agony, he plans a diabolical scheme that first calls for him to disappear from the face of the earth. His revenge will make Amy wish she had never been born.

Love can heal.

Matt’s act of vengeance puts him in charge of Amy's infant son. He discovers a soothing warmth in Jimmy's eyes that makes him wonder if Amy's betrayal truly merited wrecking the child's life. Yet Matt’s heart cannot be made whole until he has won Amy back.

Kelly cannot be made whole until she understands the depth of evil that lurks behind the Acid Man. Ironically, to rid herself and the world of her nemesis, she must seek out Matt Connor, a wanted man she has been ordered to bring to justice.

Thoughts of her smile and hair caught forever in a yellow ray of sunshine. He still loved Amy Techer, always would, and he hated her more than words could say.

That morning was special because it was the start of the day Matt planned to fake his death and disappear from the face of the

Praise for Falling

“Gripping . . . pays homage to Thomas Harris’s Hannibal Lecter novels, particularly in the character of FBI agent Kelly Feinman.  The intricate, thoughtful plot offers enough fresh variation on the serial-killer theme to keep readers turning the pages.”--Publishers Weekly on Falling
 
“Eerie parallels mark this cat and mouse: he, the love-wounded, elusive mastermind; she, every bit as cunning, smarting from the agony of her divorce.  This is stylishly written, but it’s the corkscrew plotting and twisted imagination that provide the (guilty) pleasures here.”--Kirkus Reviews on Falling
