“An explosive read . . . Amanda Kyle Williams sets the classic private eye novel on fire.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child

Hailed by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution as “one of the most addictive new series heroines,” Keye Street is the brilliant, brash heart of a sizzling thriller full of fear and temptation, judgments and secrets, infidelity and murder.
 
He likes them smart.
 
In the woods of Whisper, Georgia, two bodies are found: one recently dead, the other decayed from a decade of exposure to the elements. The sheriff is going to need help to track down an experienced predator—one who abducts girls and holds them for months before ending their lives. Enter ex–FBI profiler and private investigator Keye Street.
 
He lives for the struggle.
 
After a few weeks, Keye is finally used to sharing her downtown Atlanta loft with her boyfriend, A.P.D. Lieutenant Aaron Rauser. Along with their pets (his dog, her cat) they seem almost like a family. But when Rauser plunks a few ice cubes in a tumbler and pours a whiskey, Keye tenses. Her addiction recovery is tenuous at best.
 
And loves the fear.
 
Though reluctant to head out into the country, Keye agrees to assist Sheriff Ken Meltzer. Once in Whisper, where the locals have no love for outsiders, Keye starts to piece together a psychological profile: The killer is someone who stalks and plans and waits. But why does the sociopath hold the victims for so long, and what horrible things must they endure? When a third girl goes missing, Keye races against time to connect the scant bits of evidence. All the while, she cannot shake the chilling feeling: Something dark and disturbing lives in these woods—and it is watching her every move.

Praise for Don’t Talk to Strangers
 
“Perpetual reading pleasures . . . Don’t Talk to Strangers follows a twisty path toward multiple unexpected shocks. . . . Amanda Kyle Williams [is among the] smart detective novelists of international rank who are not afraid to tackle the worst that humanity has to offer.”Atlanta Journal-Constitution
 
“The author does a masterful job throughout of ratcheting up the suspense and placing clues that make the reader believe the killer’s identity may be at hand. Then she routes readers in an entirely different direction. Well done.”New York Journal of Books
 
“Williams weaves an electrically charged plot, sinister and evil, one jolt after another, keeping the reader amped. In the end, the shock is a charge hard to accept. If real-life events have you wondering how well you know your neighbors, then this read will be a chart-topper for you.”Suspense Magazine
 
“An entertaining thriller with a fabulous lead character reminiscent of Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone. The fast-paced action of the mystery is nicely balanced with a sprinkling of insight into Keye’s personal life and her troubled past. Her no-nonsense, honest tone makes her a character that will leave readers clamoring for more.”RT Book Reviews
 
“The third entry in this compelling series features an increasingly suspenseful plot with some delicious final twists.”Booklist (starred review)
 
“The smartest, and perhaps most sarcastic, private investigator in Atlanta has lost none of her spunk.”BookPage
