The FBI betrayed her. Now they need her.

Private Investigator Kenna Banbury lost everything two years ago at the hands of a serial killer. From the ashes of that encounter, she’s built a life she believes in, searching for the lost and forgotten all over the western US.

Bringing her own brand of justice.

When a series of murders drags her into an FBI investigation, Kenna finds herself back in the place where it all went wrong. Struggling to make sense of the case, Kenna’s past and present collide in a deadly plot that risks another betrayal and threatens to shatter everything she’s built.

Kenna faces the ultimate test in this first book of a brand-new series from Lisa Phillips.

My Perspective

Phillips had me from the very beginning of the story and she did not let up. My goodness it was such a thrilling ride, with twists and turns, excitement, danger, and everything in between. I couldn’t pry my eyes away from the story. In fact, I read it in one day.

First of all, I love how Philips gives little tidbits of Kenna’s past in a chapter here and a chapter there. I know some people may prefer getting it all at once, but I like that it was divided throughout the book. I felt it allowed you to really see why Kenna does what she does, and why she reacts to certain things. It was an added layer to the story that worked, and gave more depth to her character.

Second, the fast pace of the story really kept me on my toes, and I loved that. Here I am sitting at the edge of my seat as she’s going for a serial killer, and then thinking I can rest for a moment when he’s caught, but surprise. A dead body with Kenna’s business card is found and I don’t know what to make of it. Honestly, I wasn’t sure how all the different cases were going to come together in the end, but Phillips did an amazing job of pulling it all together.

Suspense fans are going to love Cold Dead Night. If you’re like me, you’ll probably read it in a day. Maybe even in one sitting!

Although I was part of the blog tour for this book, I did purchase my own copy. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    It sounds like we will get to know Kenna similar to how we usually get to know a new friend, parts of her life story here and there over time, not all in one sitting.
