My rating: 5 of 5 stars
OK, I have read this one out of order so I kinda knew some of the stuff that was going to happen. It was nice to read about how Bentz and Olivia got together.
Olivia has "visions" of women being ruthless murdered. She goes to the cops and a very skeptical Bentz slowly starts to believe her. Olivia also seeks advice from a priest, Father James, unaware that he is Bentz's half brother and their very troubled history. She is sexually attracted to both men and they to her, but her heart belongs to Bentz, even though he is determined NOT to get involved with her.
Olivia begins to unravel the dark secrets in her family and discovers that she has an older brother she never knew about. Bentz believes the older brother is the killer but they have no clue as to his identity. When Olivia sees him abduct Bentz's daughter, Kristie, Bentz comes unglued. Determined to find his daughter before it is to late he shuts Olivia out. When Olivia receives a frantic phone call from her friend Sarah who is in the middle of a messy divorce she doesn't hesitate to meet her at St. Luke's. Realizing to late that Sarah is under the control of the killer Olivia is abducted, but Father James sees the abduction. Father James trails the killer and calls 911 begging the dispatcher to tell Rick Bentz what he saw and that he is following the killer who has Olivia, when his cell phone goes dead (why don't these people ever keep their phones charged?). Thankfully a suspicious and jealous Bentz had bugged Father James' car and phone so he is able to follow him to the abandoned farmhouse. Father James redeems his past mistakes by protecting Olivia and Kristie, thus earning Bentz' forgiveness.
