Sometimes the prettiest of people can be the ugliest.
He may be nice to look at, but the things he does aren't very nice at all.
A mobster.
A monster.
A man destined to ruin my life.

Her fiery attitude gets on my nerves.
But, she's the one person I won't let go.
When the opportunity arises, I'll do whatever it takes to make her mine.
I'm a mobster.
I'm a monster.
And she's destined to ruin my life.


Prologue
I was born with a bit of steel forged into my bones. My father was a criminal. One of the biggest and baddest mob bosses Texas had ever seen. I’d like to say it made it easy for me. Respect was dished out on a silver platter, and I never had to work too hard for anything.
My father made sure I was primed in the ways of taking over the “family” business when he retired.
Although, he didn’t retire. Instead he was murdered by his right hand man. Shot point blank between the eyes, his brains painting the wall of the dirty hotel he was found in. Killed by a man he trusted, idiot. You can’t trust anyone in this business. And, now the fat bastard is serving three life sentences up in San Quentin. And, I was left to pick up the pieces.
I didn’t mind, but it made me think long and hard about what I was actually doing.
Did I want to follow in his footsteps and lead the same type of life. Doling out criminal activities for breakfast. Hurting people for lunch. And, let’s not forget breaking every law in the book for dinner.
It was a menu I was growing tired of.
I wanted something more.
Something different that didn’t involve breaking people’s fingers for lack of payment.
I wanted sophistication.
I wanted to earn my respect.
I’m Dalton Ridge and they call me the pretty mobster.
But, sometimes pretty can be ugly.

All that remains are whispers of the past…
When multiple body parts are recovered from the Little Ogeechee River in Savannah, Georgia, local law enforcement calls in FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher and his team to investigate. But with the remains pointing to three separate victims, this isn’t proving to be an open-and-shut case.
With no quick means of identifying the victims, building a profile of this serial killer is proving more challenging than usual. How is the killer picking these victims? Why are their limbs being severed and bodies mutilated? And what is it about them that is triggering this killer to murder?
The questions compound as the body count continues to rise, and when a torso painted blue and missing its heart is found, the case takes an even darker turn. But this is only the beginning, and these new leads draw the FBI into a creepy psychological nightmare. One thing is clear, …
