Creatures of Appetite


Todd Travis - 2013
    Everyone else calls it a nightmare. Locked doors don't stop him. He leaves no trace behind. He only takes little girls. His nickname... The Iceman. A deranged serial killer roams wintry rural Nebraska with a demented purpose no one can fathom. Special Agent EMMA KANE, a former DC cop and damaged goods now with the FBI, is assigned to babysit burnt-out profiler JACOB THORNE, once the best in the business but now said to have lost his edge, as they both fly to Nebraska to catch this maniac. Thorne is erratic, abrasive and unpredictably brilliant, but what he and Kane find in the heartland is much more than anyone bargained for, especially when the Iceman challenges them personally. The clock is ticking and a little girl's life is on the line. And maybe even more with that, once they find out what he's really up to.NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: This book has frank and profane adult language within... this is often how many a law enforcement officer speaks, in my experience. Not all, but many, very many. The book also has violence and adult situations, but the profanity is the only thing that some folks have been noting, for some odd reason, so I'm warning you now that it has profanity. I totally understand that not everyone wants to read curse words. However, to write a book like this without a cop cursing would not, in my mind, be authentic. Therefore, if you can't handle HBO-style language, (a la THE WIRE, etc.) this book is not for you. If fictional bad language bothers you more than the fictional murder of young people, this book is definitely not for you, but I thank you for your time and consideration.

But can she do the one thing that he asks?This is a story of an ordinary woman who falls in love with an extraordinary man and has to discover whether she is strong enough to forgive him his past.Contemporary Romance for readers over 18 - this is the first book in the Fallen Angel series, a Mafia Romance containing graphic scenes of sex.So what is the Fallen Angel series...This is a mafia 'romance', with the emphasis on the romance. The four books are narrated by Brooke, a British woman who travels to Washington, DC, and falls in love. This is her story, her journey into a world she has only ever seen in a movie. As is traditional, Brooke will be shielded from any 'mafia' activity, she won't know what's going on, what she finds out will be a surprise. Please don't go into this book expecting a gun-slinging mafia moll from the 1950's :) This is a modern take on what the mafia are now, in the twenty-first century. There is a reason for the title, you'll discover this throughout the books. There are four books in this story so, no, you won't know it all in book one. I wanted to explore what it would be like for me, or you, to fall into a world we have no knowledge of. It's my belief that perhaps, as British women, we wouldn't take it seriously, perhaps we'd find it exciting. Our major reference into that world is a movie made a lot of years ago :) I hope you enjoy the read.This book is not paranormal, has nothing to do with angels, fallen or otherwise.
