Every Emily Stone Thriller is a stand-alone novel.
From the multi-award winning thriller series:
What happens when one California community has a disturbing spike in homicides? It catapults cops into a deadly game of murder. Frozen human body parts hideously displayed at the crime scenes offers a horrifying interpretation that only a sadistic serial killer could design—and execute.
On the hunt for a complex serial killer, vigilante detective Emily Stone must face her most daring case yet. Stone’s proven top-notch profiling skills and forensic expertise may not be enough this time.
Young and ambitious, Detective Danny Starr, catches the homicide cases and discovers that it will test everything he knows about police work and the criminal mind. Can he handle these escalating cases or will the police department have to call in reinforcements—the FBI.
Emily Stone’s covert team pushes with extreme urgency to unravel the grisly clues, while keeping their identities hidden from the police. With one last-ditch effort, Stone dangles someone she loves as bait to draw out the killer. She then forces the killer out of their comfort zone with her partner Rick Lopez, and with help from a longtime friend Jordan Smith. A revelation of the serial killer’s identity leaves the team with volatile emotions that could destroy them.
The killer continues to taunt and expertly manipulate the police, as well as Stone’s team, and as they run out of time—they leave behind everyone and everything—in Dead Cold.
“Better than a James Patterson novel by D Brent”
Reading a Jennifer Chase novel and especially these Emily Stone novels reminds me of when James Patterson was at the top of his game. Jennifer’s writing has that same elusive quality and it makes for brilliant novels. Emily’s character is awesome and Deac Cold is not only my favorite novel in the series but also has the best concieved plot. Emily’s character was made for the big screen, I hope she makes it there because films of these books would be great.
