Review: A Cold Dark Place by Toni Anderson

Author: Toni Anderson
Publisher:Toni Anderson
Publication Date: March 2014

Former CIA assassin Alex Parker works for a clandestine government organization hell-bent on taking out serial killers and pedophiles before they enter the justice system. Alex doesn't enjoy killing, but he's damn good at it.

FBI Special Agent Mallory Rooney has spent years hunting the lowlife who abducted her identical twin sister eighteen years ago. Now, during an on-going serial killer investigation, Mallory begins to suspect there's a vigilante operating outside the law.

When Mallory starts asking questions, Alex is ordered to watch her. As soon as they meet, the two begin to fall in love. But the lies and betrayals that define Alex's life threaten to destroy them both—especially when the man who stole her sister all those years ago makes Mallory his next target.

A Cold Dark Place is the first book in the Cold Justice series.  The story involves a former CIA agent who works undercover for a secret unofficial government group as an assassin.  Mallory is an FBI agent whose twin sister was kidnapped when they were younger.  He drive to figure out what happened to her sister has brought her to join the FBI.  The two end up working together to hunt down a serial killer who seems to have Mallory.

I really enjoyed the mystery part of the book.  There were a lot of characters mixed into the pot, so it was hard to figure out the identity of the killer.  I also liked the main characters Mallory and ALex.  Their chemistry was wonderful.  I was not sure if Mallory would be able to see the grey area that Alex lives in.  So, I was rooting for them both.  I don't want to talk plot too much because there are some surprises.  I listened to the audiobook and really enjoyed consuming the book in that medium.  I highly recommend this one and can't wait to read the next one.
