A Cold Dark Place (Cold Justice #1) by Toni Anderson – Review by Jenni Bishop

A Cold Dark Place (Cold Justice, #1)A Cold Dark Place by Toni Anderson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Cold Dark Place (Cold Justice #1) by Toni Anderson is a gripping serial killer story with lots of suspense and a hot romance. The plot is well developed with several tantalising twists and turns that will have your heart pumping. Working toward the same goals but using different methods, exactly who is right or wrong. Secrets and lies that go beyond the realm of legal but again who is right or wrong. This is a fast paced story with a great mix of romance and mystery, deceit and suspense.

Alex has many secrets, but one he wants to walk away from, one that could destroy his chance at real happiness.

Mallory has lived her life under the spotlight of a terrible childhood tragedy, one that has led her on the path she is on today, but through it all there is only one thing that matters and that is finding the one person she loved more than anything in her life.

I am interested to see what the next book in the series brings.

By: Toni Anderson
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Cold Dark Place (Cold Justice #1) by Toni Anderson was an heart pounding thriller that had me hooked.

My first read by this author, I went in with a open mind and a hope for a gripping thriller. I was not let down, and I got everything I hope to get out of this dark suspense mystery.

Solid writing and a complex plot, right out of the gate the authors sets up the story, and the misdirection that leads to twist turns, and heart clutching moments. The MC’s are multi layer and believable. I did lean a little bit towards Alex, I found him to have more growth and likeability then Mallory. Don’t get me wrong Mallory is a pretty solid character, but I found she has some moments that made me shake my head, and there is one moment towards the end that has me wanting to slap the shit out of her, a very TSTD situation.

Overall this book was engaging, entertaining, and unpredictable. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that this book will hooke you and drag you down into it’s cold darkness.

Happy Reading

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Cold Dark Place by Toni Anderson is the first book in a ten book series and if the rest of the books are half as good as this one, then we are in for a wonderful ride. From the beginning, I was sucked in and it was very hard for me to put the book down to attend to my normal life. Between the chemistry of Alex and Mallory and the intrigue of who the killer may be, this is more than entertaining, its downright enthralling. I love a good thriller but some can be over wrought, too cliche, so I was surprised at how different this story was. It was captivating without seeming tired, familiar but with a twist. I found this book to be just what I needed, something new and exciting and I am eager to start book two.

A Cold Dark Place is book one in the Cold Justice series by Toni Anderson. I have been highly anticipating this story ever since reading the blurb. Instantly it grabbed my attention, and i wanted to escape into the very depths of this story immediately.

I was mesmerised by the leading characters from the moment I started their story. An assassin falling for an agent? It has danger, suspense, intensity, all tied up in one dramatic package. I connected with the characters, sympathised with them, laughed with them, cried with them, got angry for them. Felt it all with them. Reading this story was an exciting and memorable experience. As this was my first read by first author, I went in with my mind and eyes open. I was swept away by the quality of the story, the complexity of each character, and the energetic delivery. I cannot wait to see what comes next in this beguiling series. 5 stars.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

“Working in the shadows was a cold dark place.”

 

“She was a federal agent who lived to uphold the law. He was a killer who’d die to keep her safe.”

 

A Cold Dark Place is the first book in the Cold Justice series by Toni Anderson, and WOW, what an intense and intriguing read this has been!! I loved it! The story is a romantic suspense- with mystery, a serial killer (or two), danger, shocks, twists, emotion, heart-stopping action, gruesome and chilling details…. and so much more. I was completely riveted by this compelling story and couldn’t put it down, devouring it in one sitting. This may have been my first read by Ms. Anderson, but I can guarantee that it won’t be my last!
Mallory Rooney is an FBI agent with a passion for justice, who’s on the hunt for a serial killer. But her investigation brings up some perplexing questions that seem to point to a vigilante on the loose. She’s determined to find him and bring him to justice. Mallory has a bit of a dark secret that weighs on her soul- her twin sister, Payton, was kidnapped when they were nine years old. And now 18 years later, she is obsessed with finding the kidnapper and discovering what happened to her sister.
Alex Parker is haunted by his past, a man lost to the demons that drive him, a lone wolf with a tonne of baggage. He’s a covert operative working for a shadow organisation called The Gateway Project, as an assassin. He is tasked with hunting down serial killers and putting a stop to them, permanently. His latest case brings him into Mallory’s life, and bringing more complications than he could ever have imagined. As he gets to know her, he can’t help feeling protective of her, and wanting to help her. Especially when a serial killer seems to have her firmly in his sights. But would an FBI agent and an assassin ever really have a chance of finding happiness together? This is well worth the read to find out!!!
Brilliant!

Thank you, Ms. Anderson!

5-Stars

A Cold Dark place is gripping and romantic. I was immediately pulled in after reading the first few pages. Alex and Mallory were both amazing characters. Mallory was very strong and I hate that she lost her twin at such a young age. It did play a huge role in the line of work she chose though. Alex is wow. His history to me was haunting. None the less he was still amazing and steamy. I loved this novel and look forward to reading more in this series.

Five Stars

It’s so hard to stay on the straight and narrow when every one is looking for shades of gray. Mallory has lost someone precious to her and she won’t stop looking until she finds her. I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. The author gave amazing details and plotted every chapter well. I was sad at the end because life never goes the way we hope. I wanted every one to have a HEA. The story made the saying “A wolf in sheep clothing” so true. You learn to trust people and bam they’re not who you think they are. Alex is a cool dude. He did things that went against morals but I also see it as he took one more rapist or pedophile off the streets. I justice system is so screwed. You can get 20 years for dealing drugs but only 7 years for rape. Or in some cases 5 months of probation. I don’t think people should take the law into there own handed. I believe the system needs to change. I enjoyed this story for many reasons. The character development was on point. The plot wasn’t common and it was well thought out. This has never been one of my go to genres but this story sure makes me excited for more.

A Cold Dark Place by Toni Anderson is the first book in the Cold Justice series. This bookie well written and an absolute thrilling read.
Alex and Mallory could not be more suit and yet ill-suited at the same time. The chemistry between them, the connection they have, was so good to read about. You wanted to find a way to work past all the secrets that were bound to come out. But at the same time you couldn’t possibly guess how they would work it out.
The story was great as well. With t all relating back to Mallory’s sister it gave an emotional depth that I hadn’t expected.
As the first book I have read by this author I found it to be enjoyable and thrilling. I am looking forward to book 2.

5 out of 5 stars

The story A Cold Dark Place (Cold Justice Book 1) by Toni Anderson is a wonderful book that I loved reading. It is a thrilling story that also has mystery and romance. It is a book that hooks you in right from the beginning and doesn’t let go until you have read the final page. I found myself on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. I enjoyed reading about the characters of Alex Parker and Mallory Rooney Alex is a man that is part of a secret government agency that takes care of those who harm others before they reach the justice system. He is good at what he does. He also holds onto guilt from the past. Special Agent Mallory Rooney is a woman who is beautiful, strong, and independent. She has always felt guilt over the abduction of her identical twin sister. She has always lived in the shadow of that event. Both Alex and Mallory have a past that haunts them. They are both characters that I grew to care about with each chapter that I read and wanted them to find happiness. What will happen when Alex is ordered to watch Mallory because of questions she is asking about a vigilante killer? Is Mallory in danger now that she has started investigating a serial killer? There is an attraction between Alex and Mallory. Will the feelings/emotions that they have be destroyed by the lies and betrayal of Alex’s life? What does the future hold for Mallory and Alex? Read this book to find out. This is a story that had me turning pages. It is suspenseful. The story is written with a lot of detail regarding the investigation of a serial killer and I felt like I was right there with the characters trying to put together the clues and leads of the case. I also enjoyed reading about the part that many of the secondary characters had and their interactions with Alex and Mallory. There is intense and romantic dialogue. There are some steamy moments that make the temperature in the room rise. There are twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. Don’t miss out on an amazing story that had me reminding myself to breathe! I highly recommend it.
