ScarletEnvyBy:  Ann McGinnis

FBI Analyst Caycee Scarlet is back on the trail of another ruthless serial killer, and doing it the wrong way – her way.

Bombing suspect Carl Hicks continues to evade the FBI, but his interest in Caycee heats up. He sends her a love letter, prompting the FBI to place her into protective custody and use an agent as a double to draw Hicks out. The bomber isn’t fooled.

Hating being sidelined, Caycee realizes Hicks may not be a threat when he finds her safe house and reveals his ulterior motive. He’s on a mission – to save Caycee from his dangerous ex-wife Siobhan – who is killing her bloodline to eliminate the Killer Gene. Unbeknownst to everyone but Siobhan’s twisted mind, Caycee holds the key to finding the source of the gene. And the source has a deadly legacy – it’s the notorious Zodiac Killer.

The clever FBI Analyst wants back in the game but her boss, and lover, Agent Gil Graham, is reluctant to expose her to the evil of two serial killers. After all, Caycee’s an analyst not an agent! It causes her to rely more on Hicks, and question which man is her true soul mate – the protector or the trickster? The answer lies somewhere along the trail of iconic 40-year-old murders, and Caycee’s ability to uncover the truth. If she fails, she’ll be the Zodiac Killer’s latest victim.
