Midnight Caller by Leslie Tentler

FBI Agent Trevor Rivette's current investigation leads him back to New Orleans, a place he would sooner forget than revisit. Someone is killing young teenage girls and he believes drinking their blood. He is determined to bring in this sadistic serial killer, if it is the last thing he does.

Rain Sommers is a late-night radio show host as well as a psychologist. Her show caters to the young teenagers and goth community. A caller who calls himself Dante keeps calling into her show live and his remarks make Rain shiver in fear. Rain's mother was a celebrated singer in the Goth community before Rain's father murdered her. Dante seems to be fixated on her, which in turn, leads his attention to Rain.

Trevor spends sometime re-aquainting himself with his siblings but tries to steer clear of his good for nothing father. He also has a hunch that the midnight caller, Dante, may be the killer he is hunting. When the killer flaunts his kills on Trevor's turf, the stakes raise. Even as Trevor and Rain find themselves spending more and more time together, the killer is planning his next move. But will Trevor be able to protect Rain from the psycho or will he die trying?

MIDNIGHT CALLER is a heart-thumping page turner with a chilling antogonist set in the darkest part of the French Quarter. Trevor and Rain are complex, yet engaging characters, and the plot twists and turns into a surprising yet satisfying conclusion. Ms. Tentler's debut novel plants her solidly in the romantic suspense genre with a defying bang. She is here to stay and I cannot wait to read what she has in store for us next!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
