Silence is deadly.

The murder of eighteen-year-old Angie Vance was exceptionally vile-her mouth was sealed with glue, an obscenity scrawledwas across her skin, and she was suffocated in a garbage bag. The killing seems personal, so police detective Carina Kincaid focuses her efforts on the victim's much older ex-boyfriend, Steve Thomas. But without physical evidence, Carina can't make a collar or a case. She also can't stop Sheriff Nick Thomas, the prime suspect's brother, from conducting his own unwelcome investigation.

Though Nick is still scarred and unsteady from a recent confrontation with a serial killer, he's determined to prove his brother's innocence. But his confidence is shaken when he learns of Steve's dark side, and when a friend of the murdered girl meets a similarly gruesome fate. With no time to lose, Carina and Nick work together to trap a psychopath, before another unlucky woman faces an unspeakable end.

Evil has spoken. Now see what it can do.

Finished this about a week ago and I still have mixed feelings. It is definitely a dark romantic suspense and that it where my problems come in. I was bothered by the violence but what was most disturbing, for me, was the way the author seemed to play the developing romance between two law enforcement officers against the killer's sense of arousal by torture and violence. I should say this is not blatant and may be strictly my reading - other folks may disagree.
Right now I have it at 3 stars cause I did like the overall plot - but I may change it to 2.
