Twenty years ago, Rebecca Bennett's father raped and killed Jack Conroy's sister. Adopted and her name changed after the tragedy, Becca is desperately searching for her brother, Kevin, who has vanished. He is, as was their father, paranoid schizophrenic, and the string of rapes that is terrorizing the city started only days after he disappeared.
Jack Conroy, Tulsa Police Department detective, is focused with razor sharp intensity on the hunt for the serial rapist whose violence is increasing with every offense. For Jack, it's personal; he sees his sister's face in every victim. Aware of Becca only as a trauma therapist, Jack asks her to aid the investigation by working with the original rape survivors. She agrees, and soon her secrets and her life are on the line.

Author Catherine Morgan provides readers with plenty of suspense in her romantic thriller SINS OF THE FATHERS.
The storyline grabs the reader from the beginning as Becca is faced with the possibility that her mentally ill brother could be the culprit. The tension continues to build as more details emerge about the investigation. Adding segments from the perspective of the rapist helps to build the drama.
By the time the author reveals Becca's secret, it's no wonder that she wants to keep Jack at a distance. The plot twists keep the reader guessing, especially when Becca is targeted.
Becca is a strong character struggling to overcome a tragic past. The chemistry she has with Jack adds a solid dimension to the storyline, leaving readers satisfied.
