Welcome to Hanover House….
Psychiatrist Evelyn Talbot has dedicated her life to solving the mysteries of the antisocial mind. Why do psychopaths act as they do? How do they come to be? Why don’t they feel any remorse for the suffering they cause? And are there better ways of spotting and stopping them?
After having been kidnapped, tortured and left for dead when she was just a teenager—by her high school boyfriend—she’s determined to understand how someone she trusted so much could turn on her. So she’s established a revolutionary new medical health center in the remote town of Hilltop, Alaska, where she studies the worst of the worst.
But not everyone in Hilltop is excited to have Hanover House and its many serial killers in the area. Alaskan State Trooper, Sergeant Amarok, is one of them. And yet he can’t help feeling bad about what Evelyn has been through. He’s even attracted to her. Which is partly why he worries.
He knows what could happen if one little thing goes wrong...

About the Author:
This is the first book I have read of Brenda Novak's and I have been missing out on some great work for sure. I was hooked right from the first page. I love psycho thrillers and this one will be a great series I am sure! It has a little of everything I enjoy, it is a clean read, with suspense, mystery, a killer or in this case multiple and romance. Sweet romance with a hot cop ;)
The main character, Evelyn has been through the worst when she was 16. She lost her best friends to murder, he then boyfriend, Jasper. He then went crazy on her, raping and tormenting her for three days before torching the shack he had her in. Evelyn lived and Jasper got away, no one has seen him in twenty years. Evelyn is on a mission to understand why men rape and kill women. She has a new prison that will open in Alaska with hand picked inmates that Evelyn will study.
All the while.... Jasper is hunting for Evelyn to pick up were they left off. It is a suspenseful, thrilling novel. I didn't want to put it down at all. The story flows very well following three characters, Evelyn, Jasper and the new love of Evelyn's life, Amarok. Evelyn can't have a romantic relationship after everything that happened to her but she finds herself falling for Amarok. He is sweet, caring and very good looking. I can't wait for this series to continue!
I give this book 5 stars!
