Meet your new best friend (who also just happens to be a serial killer).

Cordelia Black loves exactly three things: Her chosen family comprised of her best friend Diane and her goddaughter, her hairdresser (worth every penny plus tip), and killing bad men.

By day she’s a successful pharma rep with her pristine reputation and designer wardrobe, by night she’s culling South Louisiana of unscrupulous men–monsters who always seem to evade justice, until they meet her. It’s a complicated, yet fulfilling life that requires complete and total control- at all times. But when the evening news starts throwing around the word serial killer, suddenly pressure heightens for Cordelia in the South. And it’s only exacerbated when Diane starts dating a man who Cordelia isn’t sure is a good person. Someone who might just unravel everything Cordelia has worked for.

Soon enough Cordelia’s world starts to spiral and she loses control of those tightly held threads that keep her safe. and she has to come face to face with the choices she’s made. The good, the bad, and the murderous. Both her family, and her freedom, depend on it.

Emma C. Wells loves anti-heroes, dark humor, witty banter, and ride-or-die friendships. Twisty relationships are her kryptonite (or catnip—depending on how you look at it) and her favorite characters are often called unlikable (but at least they’re never boring). Emma enjoys camping, yoga, researching spooky folklore, and collecting copies of Wuthering Heights from used bookstores.
