Love is a powerful force. Unparalleled, unpredictable and often unforeseen. Yet it can surface in the most dangerous of situations. Suffocation, mutilation and dismemberment aren’t the normal outside influences that bring two people together, but inside the newly refurbished Alcatraz Prison, anything can happen.

As inmates begin dying in shocking and sometimes gruesome ways, the deaths prompt Warden Jensen Black to bring in sexy parapsychologist, Brian Phipps. With the help of Brian, Jensen hopes to get to the bottom of what is killing the men he is responsible for. But what he didn’t count on is falling—and falling hard—for the smaller man with the heart of a lion. The question is: will their love survive against the ghosts of Alcatraz?


Jensen is in charge of a newly reopened Alcatraz.  These prisoners are being held for cyber crimes.  That is way it is eerie when the prisoners start dying off.  The last victim is videoed tearing himself apart.  Jensen doesn’t believe this is an event that could even happen so he calls his boss and friend who hooks him up with Brian.  Brian is in the family business of fighting ghosts.  What he faces in Alcatraz is more than he expect though.

As a paranormal story goes this one had a great plot, it was full of action and danger.  The author did a wonderful job in keeping the world simple but creating such atmosphere.  The characters were well written and engaging.  The love relationship happens quickly and is quite intense.  I don’t think this is a stretch.  The conditions in the story make it very conceivable.  The ending of the story was dramatic and well done.  I would love if the author does go ahead and makes a series out of this book like she hints at in the ending of the book.
