Review : Prey

Allison Brennan
 Ballantine Books
First, she imagined it. Then a killer made it real.
Rowan Smith is living in a borrowed Malibu beach house while her bestselling novel is made into a Hollywood movie. A former FBI agent with a haunted past, Rowan thinks she has outrun her demons. But fiction and reality collide when a dismembered body is found in Colorado: the real-life victim had the same name, occupation, and looks as a character in Rowan’s novel. By the time the FBI, the LAPD, and her own private bodyguard gather around her, another person is killed–again, the murder ripped from the pages of Rowan’s book.

In the company of a former Delta Force officer with secrets of his own, Rowan faces an excruciating dilemma: the only way to chase down the tormenting killer is by revisiting the darkness of her past–and by praying for some way out again.

After the prey is chosen, the hunt is on and the kill is certain.

My review:  This book was a quick read because it is so action packed and the story flows so well. From the start the story grabs you and compels you to see who did it , and why. Rowan was such a complex character and her secrets so deeply hidden you devour the book to discover them all. I finished this book in about two days because I had to work but to tell you the truth I wanted to call in sick so I could finish it. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. I want to see that happens to all the character next.
