FRINGE meets CASTLE in this New Adult Sci-fi Mystery Suspense.

She's next on the list.

It's worse than they both think.

Teagan and Sage have been best friends since the 5th grade and they are now college roommates at Detroit University. Teagan is an artist who meets a guy online, Marlow, a self-proclaimed geek. Sage gets her to hang out with some friends one night and she meets a good-looking guy from one of her classes, Jake Wentworth. Pretty soon a rapist is loose on campus and Marlow starts saying things that make Teagan start to suspect him of being the rapist. Is he or is something else going on?

The story is told from four points of view: Teagan, Sage, Marlow and the predator. It drew me in right away and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to find out what was going to happen next. I think I know what's happening but Lee Strauss is great at twisting her stories so that I don't see the ending coming.

I haven't watched FRINGE or CASTLE but I loved this suspenseful episode of Lee Strauss's new series! The bad news for me is that I need to wait a few more weeks to read more. The good news is that I only need to wait a few more weeks to read more so, even though it ends in a cliffhanger, I will soon be able to read the second installment! 

Content: Since this is a novel about a predator/killer, there are rape and assault scenes, but they're not graphic. 

Lee Strauss writes romantic mixed genres set in the past, present and future for YA and adult readers. She also writes light and fun stuff as Elle Strauss. She divides her time between BC, Canada and Dresden, Germany, and enjoys drinking coffee and eating chocolate in both places. Find out more at

I can't believe I haven't read any of hers. Sounds like one I'd enjoy! Thanks for the great review.
