19 Souls (Sin City Investigation #1)
If you're on her list, you'd better run...
A tough private detective faces off against a serial killer in this noir mystery by J.D. Allen, the bestselling author of the Sin City Investigations series.
SHE'S OUT FOR BLOOD...

Detective Jim Bean will serve her well.
HE NEEDS A CLIENT...

BUT WHEN SHE TRACKS DOWN HER PREY...
Jim locates Dan, unwittingly leading a serial killer straight to her prey. As Jim discovers the truth about Sophie, he'll risk everything to protect the latest targets on her list-and himself.
ALL BETS ARE OFF.
When Sophie captures someone close to Jim as a hostage, he must stop her from carrying out her twisted plan-before she adds another name to her list of 19 victims.
A must-read twisty mystery in the vein of Lee Goldberg, Mary Stone, and James Patterson
