Dark, intense and twisted, Burton’s writing leaves an indelible mark on the genre. Not for the faint of heart, Senseless takes readers on a dark journey into the heroine’s horrific past. Powerful characterization and expertly calculated plotting will have readers at Burton’s mercy, turning the pages anxious to read what happens next.

On what should have been one of the most enjoyable nights of her life, Eva Rayburn is raped, branded and left for dead. She wakes to find her attacker dead and the house on fire. Her attacker’s rich father manipulates witnesses and evidence, and Eva goes to jail for murder. Now she’s out, and someone’s branding and killing her old sorority sisters. Detective Deacon Garrison is drawn to Eva, but there’s something about her he doesn’t trust. As more bodies turn up, Deacon’s convinced she holds the key to solving the case.
