Two FBI agents are caught in a merciless vigilante’s crosshairs in New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden’s electric Killer Instinct series
Lives will be ravaged as two FBI agents confront a mastermind serial murderer in New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden’s new Killer Instinct novel
Sheltered in the shadows of the Smoky Mountains is the suspect who’s summoned FBI agent Macey Night’s fears to the surface. Every day that the “Profiler,” a vigilante serial killer, escapes justice is another day she’s reminded of what it is to be a ruthless predator’s prey. Capturing him is a craving deeper than anything she’s felt in a long time. But Agent Bowen Murphy, equal parts sexy and volatile, seems hell-bent on changing that. Working together—needing, living, and breathing each other—they’re entwined to distraction.
Bowen’s used to operating on impulse: act, don’t feel. Now Macey and the controlled terror behind her beautiful eyes has him rethinking everything, including his rule to never get close to a colleague. He’s willing to fight for a future with Macey, but the consequences of love could be deadly.

Suspenseful, edge of your seat page-turning adventure. Ms. Eden has gotten another fan, she has been able to keep this reader on her toes and wanting to forget everything until I finished this page-turner. I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this book.
Macey Night, when we read about Macey we find out that she is a doctor, then we find her in the hands of a serial monster, but she manages to get herself freed and turns her life around to helping bring monsters like him to justice as an FBI special agent. Macey has a special connection with serial killers due to her past and there are others in the book that have a special connection with serial killers as well. Bowen Murphy, and Samantha Dark to name a few.
Samantha Dark is the team leader in charge of catching the serial killers. Samantha is used to getting her way and getting brass to see things her way. She goes to bat for her team and knows her team members are the real deal and they are the right ones for the job at hand. She is the Aaron Hotchener from Criminal Minds in this book.
Bowen Murphy, has one weakness, just one. Macey Night. He knows that as a member of the FBI he must keep a hands-off policy when it comes to Macey, but can he keep that policy when she comes to him after a rather horrifying night of dealing with “The Profiler” serial killer? Just like Macey, Bowen has a special connection with serial killers, but can Bowen and the team figure out how “The Profiler” is finding other killers before it is too late?
Ms. Eden has turned this reader into a big fan! I can’t wait to read more from this wonderful author. She has a way of bringing her reader into the story without too much trouble. Bowen and Macey are such a delight to read about and when a horrible past ends up in a HEA it is always a great story for this reader. I found myself hoping for a bit more action but in the end, the way that Ms. Eden has done this story and the characters is just right and this reader is more than willing to admit she was wrong to want more action. The whole book is action packed.
I would love to see Ms. Eden continue with books for the rest of the team but that is just a hope I have. Fingers crossed.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers’ copy of this book.
