With Full MaliceBook - 2012
Newspaper food critic Madison Young lives a safe, controlled life in Yucaipa, a quiet California town below Big Bear. Since the night her parents were murdered, she's been haunted by the killer's threat to return for her. But she's forced out of her sheltered world when a paroled sex offender is shot execution-style, and her out-of-town editor needs her to cover the story.Reluctantly interviewing a witness, Madison jots down one word, one seemingly insignificant word, that will link to a chain of murders across the country and to a secret society, a vast and deadly organization whose tentacles invade her own life. She traces clues, shocked when they reveal a connection to the man who slaughtered her parents, horrified when warnings to stop the investigation become deadly. When her editor dies mysteriously and a family member is threatened, Madison discovers that no one is who they seem, and few can be trusted.With the Society closing in, she turns to family friend, San Bernardino homicide detective Dexter Quinn, to unravel the deceit before she runs out of time. Together, they discover a terrifying adversary--one who'll stop at nothing to protect the Society's secrets.
