Balancing single motherhood with criminal investigation puts everyone in danger when a deranged killer is on the loose in Las Vegas in Michele Jaffe's Bad Girl. Eve's a bad girl with issues and a startling resemblance to forensic expert Chicago "Windy" Thomas, who's hot on Eve's trail. Devoted to her daughter Cate and her fiancŽ Bill, Windy starts questioning her relationships and the danger she's brought into her own home. When she realizes Eve's a handy scapegoat for an even more dangerous killer the mysterious Harry the pursuit turns into a game of cat-and-mouse. Harry's obsession with Eve has already left a trail of victims around the city. Will Windy and task force leader Ash Laughton pull together the threads to catch the conniving killer before he turns her daughter Cate into his newest victim? As Harry taunts Windy with his uncanny access to her life, she's all the more determined to stop him. Meanwhile, Ash awakens passions in Windy that Bill can't match, and she faces difficult choices, both personal and professional. Driving the plot with masterful edge-of-your-seat power, Jaffe offers taut, compelling and relentless suspense with Bad Girl.
