second honeymoonFBI agent John O’Hara isn’t happy the drunk driver who killed his wife is getting out of prison. His boss has placed him on unpaid leave in fear he’d commit murder.  So when a billionaire’s son and daughter in aw are murdered on their honeymoon, he’s free when hire to investigate the case.  He must fly to the Turks & Caicos Islands and stay at the same luxury resort as the couple in order to uncover clues.

Sarah Brubaker is also an FBI agent, one on the hunt for a serial killer targeting men named John O’Hara.  She met and talked to the killer, realising too late who he was and who he wants.  She’s demoted from the hunt and tasked with guarding John O’Hara, the FBI agent he’s targeting.   Then another honeymooning couple turn up dead.  John and Sarah must find the Honeymoon killer before another couple is targeted as they hunt the John O’Hara killer.

A very clever plot, it had me puzzle for a while before I figured the first part out.  Split into five parts, each has a different persons POV and tells a different part of the story.  The characters where likable – apart from the serial killers who I felt a little sorry for.  The action moves along quickly and though this is the second in a series, you don’t need to have read the first.
