Heart Sick - Chelsea Cain ... gone. 'Whatever you think this is going to be like,' she whispers, 'it's going to be worse.' When beautiful serial killer Gretchen Lowell captured her last victim, the man in charge of hunting her down, she quickly established who was really in control of the investigation. So why, after ten days of horrifying physical and mental torture, did she release Detective Archie Sheridan from the brink of death and hand herself in? Two years on, Archie remains driven by a terrifying obsession that was born during his time alone with Gretchen. One thing is clear Archie does not believe he was ever truly freed. Now Archie returns to lead the search for a new killer, whose recent attacks on teenage girls have left the city of Portland reeling. Shadowed by vulnerable young reporter Susan Ward, Archie knows that only one person can help him climb into the mind of this psychopath. But can Archie finally manage to confront the demons of his past without being consumed by them?

Sometimes it just seems as though you start looking for someone new to read and then.... BANG!!! Suddenly you find yourself literally swamped with new books and authors to experience for the very first time. Just such a thing has happened to me recently. Having finished the Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell and vowing never to pick up any of her the series ever again, I find myself surrounded by dozens of new authors from whom to pick from.
