1. Hunted

    October 8, 2018

    A depraved serial killer is on the loose, attacking unsuspecting victims and disposing their bodies in horrific fashions. But when the FBI sends in their most gifted profiler to shed light on the killer, the monstrous murderer decides to target her as his next victim and turn the hunter into the hunted. From debut author Elizabeth Heiter, Hunted is the spine-chilling first story in her edgy, heroine-led FBI thriller series featuring deadly villains and psychological twists.

    As one of the FBI’s most talented profilers, special agent Evelyn Blaine solves unusual and deadly murders by getting in the heads of killers—understanding how they think, how they choose victims and why they kill. Evelyn knows what true evil looks like and she knows how to find it. But even Evelyn has never seen a murder scene like that of the Bakersville Burier—a killer who leaves his victims buried vertically up to their necks in the deep, dark woods of Virginia. Evelyn is convinced, however, that the killer is nearby, watching, and ready to strike again. She knows that for every minute he’s not found, his next target comes that much closer to death. But what Evelyn doesn’t know is that she is his next target.

    Heiter graduated from U-M in 2001 with a degree in English literature. Her manuscripts have been finalists in Golden Heart®, Marlene, Daphne du Maurier, and Golden Gateway contests and she won Suzanne Brockmann’s 2010 Haiku Contest. She’s a member of International Thriller Writers and Romance Writers of America and has volunteered for several chapters, including serving as the Greater Detroit area president.
