Love Me to Death by Allison Brennan

Six years ago, Lucy Kincaid was attacked and nearly killed by an online predator. She survived. Her attacker did not. Now Lucy’s goal is to join the FBI and fight cyber-crime, but in the meantime, she’s volunteering with a victim’s rights group, surfing the Web undercover to lure sex offenders into the hands of the law. But when the predators she hunts start turning up as murder victims, the FBI takes a whole new interest in Lucy.

With her future and possibly even her freedom suddenly in jeopardy, Lucy discovers she’s a pawn in someone’s twisted plot to mete out vigilante justice. She joins forces with security expert and daredevil Sean Rogan, and together they track their elusive quarry from anonymous online chat rooms onto the mean streets of Washington, D.C. But someone else is shadowing them: A merciless stalker has his savage eye on Lucy. The only way for her to escape his brutality may be another fight to the death.

MY THOUGHTS

I have always enjoyed a good story of mystery and suspense.  When reading the synopsis of Love Me to Death, I was intrigued by the story line of a victim of many years earlier who is now tracking down predators on-line.  Lucy's goal was to eventually work for the FBI, and her journey towards that goal was a very interesting one.

This story has strong characters, lots of mystery and suspense, and even some romance. I enjoyed the interactions that Lucy had with her family and co-workers, and admired her strength and determination to make the world a better place by getting the criminals off the street.

However, there were some scenes that I found rather disturbing, and rightfully so ... considering the topic.  I was looking for something a little different than my usual book choices, and this book definitely delivered.

Disclosure:  I received a complimentary copy of Love Me to Death through TLC Books, in exchange for my honest review.
