New York Times bestselling author Allison Brennan is back with Compulsion, another high-octane thriller starring the "compelling new protagonist" (RT Book Reviews) Maxine Revere.
Investigative reporter Maxine Revere has a theory: Maybe five New York City murders for which Adam Bachman is being tried are just one part of his master plan? In probing another case, involving a missing couple, Max uncovers striking similarities to Bachman's MO. It seems likely that Bachman wasn't working alone...but how can she prove it?
"Don't miss [this] roller-coaster new thriller. Talk about grit and courage-Max never gives up."-Catherine Coulter
Max wins a coveted pre-trial interview with Bachman, whose disarming composure is combined with uncomfortable knowledge of Max's own past. She leaves the room convinced that Bachman is involved in her other missing-persons case-but the D.A. refuses to hear it. With no physical evidence, Max must rely on her own wits and investigative prowess to dig deep into Bachman's psyche. But as she gets closer to the truth, she doesn't realize that she's walking down a road that has been paved just for her. And at the end, the killer is waiting. . .
"Compulsion is a gripping, pulse-pounding thriller that readers will not want to put down."-Crimespree magazine
