4-Stars Review

Haunting Desire is a suspenseful novel. A murderer is prowling the streets and no one knows how to catch him. He is targeting men near whore houses. That is bad for business hence madam Trula takes it upon herself to solve this mystery of brutal killings. But will she able to catch culprit or just get hurt in the process? 


Through out the novel I tried to guess who this killer could be and the answer was completely unexpected. This book is full of intrigue, romance and tragedy as well. I loved all the characters, their background stories made them all the more interesting. Book is well written, it was a real treat.
