When a serial rapist strikes again and the police, including lead detective Ryne Robel, still have no leads. Forensic profiler Abbie Phillips is brought in to help find the rapist. Abbie doesnít get a warm welcome from anyone, but she quickly proves to be an asset to the investigation. As Ryne and Abbie struggle to discover the rapistís identity before he can strike again, their simmering attraction begins to boil over. Neither of them believes in happily ever after, but that doesnít stop them from looking for one.   

Waking Nightmare is an intense, edge-of-your-seat thriller that will keep you riveted from the first line to the last. Abbie and Ryne have intense chemistry but a complicated relationship. The scene where they are making love and discussing the case is very powerful. It shows their deep emotional and physical connection. Iíve never read anything quite like it. The characterization in Waking Nightmare is excellent. I could feel Ryne and Abbieís emotions and I felt like I got into the villainís head. Constant suspense and a shocking twist at the end add to an already gripping storyline making Waking Nightmare an excellent beginning to The Mindhunters series.
