Most Wanted: Melanie Vargas Series, Book 1
Melanie Vargas is a hardworking, hotshot Latina federal prosecutor. Her home life is a bit chaotic, since she just caught her husband in an affair, although she is still trying to work things out, if only for her baby daughter's sake. One evening she takes the child out on an innocent stroll and walks right into a crime scene: a wealthy former fellow prosecutor has been murdered. Melanie knows that with her personal problems she should stay away from what promises to be a demanding, high-profile case. Yet it's a career-making case, and she aggressively signs on, only to be led into a race for her life against a dark, sadistic killer who seems to always be one step ahead of her.

A betrayed wife and dedicated mother suddenly forced to raise her six-month-old daughter alone, Melanie Vargas is also an ambitious, hard-working professional who has had to bite and claw for recognition in the federal prosecutor's office. Then, while strolling with her baby girl on a steamy New York night, Melanie stumbles onto the kind of high-profile case that could make a career: the burning townhouse of a wealthy former prosecutor, its owner's tortured, murdered corpse smoldering within. Melanie Vargas wants this chance — she needs it — and she'll do whatever it takes to get it.
But a headline-grabbing opportunity of a lifetime could cost Melanie more than she ever imagined, as it pulls her closer to a dangerous affair with a secretive, enigmatic FBI agent — and closer still to a sadistic human monster moving expertly through the city's darkest shadows.
