Sometimes the past should stay there…
The murder is one of the most heinous FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher has ever seen. But that’s not why he and two members of the team are rushing to California. The Bureau is interested because the prime suspect is one of their own, Paige Dawson.
But Paige didn’t go to Valencia to kill anyone. She had set out on “vacation”—her new lover in tow—only to confront the man who raped her friend twenty-some years ago. While the hands of the law are tied, she wants him to face the fact that he destroyed a young woman’s life and know that, as an FBI agent, she’ll be watching his every move. Yet, instead of accomplishing her goal, she wound up in the back of a police cruiser.
Now Paige must face off with a hard-nosed detective determined to stick a murder charge to a fed. But with the trained eyes of the FBI on the case, it’s becoming more and more obvious that the evidence lends itself to a serial killing, not an isolated incident. And as long as the local authorities are focused on Paige, the real murderer is still out there, possibly waiting to strike again…

If you have ever watched Criminal Minds on television and loved it, you definitely want to pick up Violated. Brandon Fisher is a profiler in the Behavioral Analysis Unit. The book follows his unit as they track a killer but not because the local authorities want help. Because one of the unit is the accused.
On top of the murders that need to be solved, there is tension between Brandon and the accused, Paige. They had been involved at one point in time but Paige has a new friend who accompanies her on her vacation to California. The triangle that these three form makes for more tension in the book than just the trouble solving a gruesome murder.
The book does have some fairly graphic descriptions of murdered bodies so you may want to take that into consideration if you recommend this to young readers.
I definitely recommend picking up Violated.
I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
