Never Look Back opens, as many of Mary’s books do, in the point of view of the killer. Readers find themselves riding alongside a methodical and meticulous man as he stalks the streets for his next victim. It’s unnerving—and engrossing. Watching as this killer, who prides himself on his preparation, is bested by the woman he tries to abduct is riveting. Little did he know he’d targeted determined and capable Agent Melina Shepard, who was walking the streets undercover, hoping to find him.
From there, Never Look Back never lets up. With twists and swerves and thrills galore, this book is Mary Burton at her best. I’m excited to share it with you, and for you to discover the unrelenting, gritty world this author conjures so deftly.
