About this ebook

Retired FBI agent Dr. Beau Peterson’s strange psychic ability enables him to connect with murder victims after their deaths, a talent that aided him in capturing the infamous Ryland Ripper. Now teaching criminal psychology at a local college, he is asked to work with his former partner, Cody Taylor, on a baffling new case—someone, whom the media dubs “Ripper Junior,” is mimicking the Ryland Ripper.

With each of Junior’s kills, Jordan Stafford falls into a trance, forcing her to see every hideous detail through his eyes. Beau reluctantly accepts her assistance in pursuing the dangerous serial killer, but in a macabre twist of fate, she becomes Junior’s new target. Beau, Jordan, and Cody must utilize all of their skills to prevent her from becoming Junior’s next victim.

4.25stars— COPYCAT is the first instalment in Sandy James’ contemporary adult THE HUNTERS slightly paranormal, romantic suspense series. This is retired FBI agent turned professor Dr. Beau Peterson, and social worker/student Jordan Stafford’s story line. WARNING: Due to the nature of the story line premise including murder and violence, there may be triggers for more sensitive readers. Told from third person perspective COPYCAT focuses on the hunt for a serial killer. For close to one year Jordan Stafford has suffered with violent and detailed ‘storms’, as she ‘sees’ in her mind, real time murders of a serial killer. Working on her Masters’ Degree, Jordan will suffer such a ‘storm’ and find herself in the company of her professor Dr. Beau Peterson, a man who has a secret ability of his own. As the killer continues to up his body count, Jordan suffers with each murder until Beau, and his former FBI partner Cody Taylor begin to uncover a possible connection between Jordan and the killer they named Ripper Junior, a killer whose murders copycat two other infamous cases. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between Jordan and Beau, and the fall-out when the truth is revealed, and a killer uses his famous DNA to continue his life of crime. Dr. Beau Peterson and Cody Taylor aren’t surprised by Jordan’s explanation of the ‘storms’ that have been ravaging the woman with whom Beau will fall in love. Beau is able to ‘talk’ to the recently deceased, and in this working together with Cody, our couple begin to see a pattern that may be linked to our story line heroine. Having no recollection about her early years, Jordan undergoes hypnosis, revealing buried secrets from long ago. The relationship between Beau and Jordan begins as student and professor but quickly turns into something more when Beau finds himself guardian and protector of a woman who has caught the attention of a serial killer.In seclusion together, Beau and Jordan’s relationship becomes more personal, placing Beau and Cody in the direct line of fire. the $ex scenes are intimate and passionate without the use of over the top sexually graphic language and text. We are introduced to Beau’s former FBI and current investigative partner Cody Taylor, as well as three serial killers that target our heroine for demons of the past. COPYCAT is a story of betrayal and vengeance, obsession and madness, secrets, lies, friendships, relationships and love. The premise is intriguing and captivating; the romance is seductive and impassioned; the characters are energetic and charismatic. COPYCAT ends on a bit of a cliff hanger-you have been warned.
