Boyett–Compo's novel is an edge-of-your-seat thrill. There are time shifts, with no explanation of the heroine's activities during the missing hours, which can be confusing, but the shocking twist at the end more than makes up for it.

Brenna Collins is working late one night in what she thinks is an empty office building when she hears her boss being murdered. After waiting until she thinks the killer has left, Brenna tries to escape but comes face to face with the killer. She fights back and escapes -- and she's shocked to see the murderer again when the police respond to her call.

They tell her that they believe the culprit is a serial killer known as the Gemini Killer, who slays identical twins. Brenna, however, believes that it's police officer Kylan Cree. Lying to the police that she never saw the killer, Brenna flees, and what ensues is a spine-tingling cat-and-mouse game. (Cerridwenpress.com, dl $5.95)
