One Scream Away by Kate Brady is the first book in the new “Sheridan” romantic suspense series.  Publisher: Forever (Grand Central Publishing), July 2009

One Step Away
Seven years ago Beth Denison was attacked by a killer named Chevy Bankes.  Since then, she’s created a new life for herself and her daughter, one far removed from the night that ended in an awful tragedy.  But now Bankes is out of prison, and his chilling phone calls tell Beth he’s coming for her.

One Breath Away
Ex-FBI agent Neil Sheridan is driven to investigate a chain of murders eerily similar to a disturbing case from his past.  When the killer’s trail dead-ends at Beth’s doorstep, Neil finds a beautiful woman with a secret she’ll do anything to keep.  Yet even as Beth surrenders to Neil’s protection – and then his embrace – she still refuses to tell him my Bankes hunger to hear her scream, and why she’ll soon consider doing the unthinkable: face Bankes alone.

All Beth wanted to do is raise her daughter, but a killer from her past taunts her with deadly intentions and now Beth fears for her life and that of her daughter.  Neil Sheridan knows what he wants and that is to help Beth through this crisis and capture the serial killer who is attacking people close to Beth.  This story had lots of twist and turns and the final act I didn’t see coming. My rating 4 stars
