Jayda Thomasz is a sassy homicide detective who never lets her emotions get in the way of a case. So when a serial killer re-emerges after 25 years, the last thing she expects is to catch herself fantasising over the hot, smooth-talking stranger who crosses the path of her investigation.

Seth Friedin is a reporter chasing the story that’ll make his career. When he enters the world of swinging for research, he never imagines he’ll be distracted by a hard-talking female detective whose kiss plagues his mind long after she’s gone.

Past experience has shown Jayda that reporters are ruthless and unscrupulous. But when the murders get personal, will she make a deal with the devil to catch the killer? How far will she and Seth have to go? And do you ever really know who you can trust?

'A powerful new voice in crime fiction' Valerie Parv
'Move over Dexter! Michelle Somers crafts a gripping read from first page to chilling last' Robyn Grady


From my first reading of her work as winner of the Valerie Parv Award, I knew Michelle Somers would be a powerful new voice in crime fiction. Lethal in Love delivers mightily on this promise as Jayda, a red-headed female Clint Eastwood, hunts down the Night Terror killer while meeting her match in brilliant wordsmith, Seth. Their story is pure reading gold.
