The Shark by Mary Burton

At the grisly murder scene of a teen prostitute, Virginia state trooper Riley Tatum’s past roars back to haunt her. When she was a teenage runaway, she was kidnapped, drugged, and left unconscious on the streets. She has no memories of what happened, only strange recurring dreams of two men playing cards.

Former FBI agent Clay Bowman, Riley’s old flame, is Shield Security’s newest member. He’s plagued by the unsolved case of a serial killer nicknamed the Shark who murdered girls as part of a sadistic poker game. Only one girl survived. With the Shark now bent on evening that score, Clay has a chilling suspicion: Riley is the girl who escaped the Shark’s deadly amusement—and she is his next prey.

As the Shark gets ready to play his hand, can Riley and Clay stop him—or will this killer finally claim the one who got away?

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I started reading The Shark on a cold, rainy Saturday night, snuggled up in a warm blanket. The weather felt perfect for reading a book with a kick arse heroine chasing down a serial killer. The mystery is the centre of the story and it worked well. This is an engaging page turner.

Trooper Riley Tatum, our heroine, is strong, hardworking, and confident. She is a dedicated State Trooper who works with her rescue dog, Cooper, and is well respected. When she comes across a murdered runaway, it brings up issues from her past. Former FBI agent and fling, Clay Bowman, shows up and provides clues to help Riley start to connect the dots. He also thinks the killer is after her and wants to provide protection. I liked the dash of romance in the story. Clay ticks all of the usual boxes for a sexy hero, but I felt a bit distanced from his character, but they work well together.

I really enjoyed reading The Shark and I will definitely be continuing on with this series.
