About the Book

Author: Kimberley Woodhouse 
Publisher: Kregel Publications 
Release Date: February 20, 2024 
Genre: Christian Romantic Suspense

8 bodies down.

8 more lives at stake. 

Investigator Carrie Kintz is new blood with the Alaska Bureau of Investigation in Anchorage. But with a serial killer on the loose, there's no easing into the job. It's sink or swim. The only clues to help law enforcement stop this madman are the taunts he drops into crossword puzzles across the country--always in the same 8 DOWN position.

Carrie is desperate to prove her worth to the force and the community by catching the killer. But when she discovers signs that these deaths are just the tip of the iceberg in a frighteningly elaborate cyberattack, it's time to admit she needs help.

Calling in security specialist Scott Patteson for his expertise seems like the right move--until Carrie realizes that he may be a dangerous distraction for her heart. With her faith fading in the face of horror and uncertainty and her career in danger of ending, this is no time for flirtation.

But with a killer who is determined to prove that he's smarter than everyone else, it may be impossible to fight both the madman and their feelings for each other...

Put on your parkas as we head into a cold world of cybercrime, and hang on for the ride! Kimberley Woodhouse once again takes us on a nail-biter of a ride, and you won't want to quit until you've read the last page!" --Jaime Jo Wright, author of The Lost Boys of Barlowe Theater

"An amazing, breath-stealing, knuckle-biting thrill of a ride!" --Lynette Eason, award-winning, best-selling suspense author

Book Excerpt

Cyberterrorism. There really wasn’t any other way to word it. 

People had always hurt people. But now, in addition to guns and bombs, they could shut down the power and communication systems,

or in this case, traffic lights.

Who would do something like that?

That’s what he didn’t want to wrap his brain around. The cyber part was easy, at least in his mind. He had a master’s degree in computer science. Computers always made sense to him. Code. Programming.

Hardware. Software. 

But put an evil presence behind it, and all that technology could be used to harm innocent citizens. 

If someone was planning another cyberattack, his team and law enforcement needed to be ready. Anchorage was much larger than Fairbanks. A lot more lives were on the line.
