A Stranger’s Game

New York Times bestselling author Joan Johnston comes a
new Bitter Creek novel that mixes Texas high society
intrigue and Texas Ranger honor with a serial killer, wrongful
imprisonment, and a woman who counts no cost too high to see a
killer brought to justice.

FBI Special Agent Breed Grayhawk has the hottest sex in his life
with a stranger who calls herself Grace Smith only to learn from
his boss the next day that she is actually Merle Raye Finkel --- a
convicted double murderer who has resurfaced as the FBI’s
prime suspect in a terrorist threat against the U.S.

Meanwhile, Grace Caldwell is focused on finding the killer who
framed her for the murder of her father and stepmother while she
was still a child. She slips into the home of the last good suspect
on her list and stumbles on a hot-pink, silk-covered diary ---
filled with a sex-addicted wife’s years of illicit trysts.
Could the cheating have turned the husband into a murderer? Or
worse, a serial killer?

With just five days until the president arrives in Austin, Texas,
the last thing the FBI needs is a serial killer on the loose
(especially one who looks to be one of their own) much less a
terrorist suspect who will stop at nothing to clear her name.
It’s a strange game alright, but why does Agent Grayhawk
suspect he’s missing some of the pieces?
