Not Like Us by Ava Strong
“Gripped me the whole way… The plot has many twists and turns, but it is the ending, which I did not see coming at all, that totally defines this book as one of the most riveting that I have read in years.”
In this #1 bestselling mystery by suspense author Ava Strong, a victim barely escapes a serial killer in the Pacific Northwest—yet now, she fears he is stalking her again. Is he?

Ilse Beck escaped her own traumatic childhood in Germany and moved to the U.S. to become a renowned psychologist and the world’s leading expert in the trauma of serial-killer survivors. Ilse has a unique and unparalleled expertise in the psychology of serial killers.
Yet nothing can prepare Ilse for her new patient, a survivor from a near murder by a serial killer. The patient believes she is still being watched by the killer. Is she paranoid?
When the killer claims a new victim, the FBI needs Ilse’s help to solve it. This case and this killer, though, strike too close to home for Ilse’s comfort.
When she wonders if she herself is being targeted, the trauma of her own past comes full circle.
Can Ilse use her brilliant instincts to enter the mind of this killer and stop him before he strikes again?
