display_description"Hailed by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution as "one of the most addictive new series heroines," Keye Street is the brilliant, brash heart of a sizzling thriller full of fear and temptation, judgments and secrets, infidelity and murder. He likes them smart. In the woods of Whisper, Georgia, two bodies are found: one recently dead, the other decayed from a decade of exposure to the elements. The sheriff is going to need help to track down an experienced predator--one who abducts girls and holds them for months before ending their lives. Enter ex-FBI profiler and private investigator Keye Street. He lives for the struggle. After a few weeks, Keye is finally used to sharing her downtown Atlanta loft with her boyfriend, A.P.D. Lieutenant Aaron Rauser. Along with their pets (his dog, her cat) they seem almost like a family. But when Rauser plunks a few ice cubes in a tumbler and pours a whiskey, Keye tenses. Her addiction recovery is tenuous at best. And loves the fear. Though reluctant to head out into the country, Keye agrees to assist Sheriff Ken Meltzer. Once in Whisper, where the locals have no love for outsiders, Keye starts to piece together a psychological profile: The killer is someone who stalks and plans and waits. But why does the sociopath hold the victims for so long, and what horrible things must they endure? When a third girl goes missing, Keye races against time to connect the scant bits of evidence. All the while, she cannot shake the chilling feeling: Something dark and disturbing livesin these woods--and it is watching her every move. Praise for Amanda Kyle Williams and her Keye Street thrillers "The best private eye debut since Dennis Lehane's A Drink Before the War."--The Plain Dealer, on The Stranger You Seek "Street is aunique and worthy addition to the rich tradition of damaged and tough private detectives."--Associated Press "An exceptionally smart and harrowing character-driven debut by a welcome new thriller writer."--Karin Slaughter, on The Stranger You Seek"[Williams] keeps the suspense taut and the humor snarky."--The Atlanta Journal-Constitution "Keye Street immediately puts herself in the top echelon of suspense heroes. She is brutally funny and powerfully human--one of the most realistic protagonists in crime fiction that I've had the thrill to read."--Tess Gerritsen "The tension buzzes like cicadas on a hot Georgia night and the pace is relentless."--Seattle Post-Intelligencer, on Stranger in the Room"--
