Ex-SEAL Tucker Frost knows that the world is full of evil. He saw it in the face of his own brother, Jason Frost, a cold, methodical, sadistic killer. A killer Tucker put down with his own hands in order to save Jason's final victim--Dawn Alexander, the only girl who got away from the infamous "Iceman."

It's Tucker's up close and personal experience with evil that's made him perfect for Samantha Dark's experimental profiling division in the FBI. And when women start turning up murdered with the same MO used by the Iceman, Tucker is sent back to Louisiana to investigate.

Seven years have passed since the night that Tucker faced down his brother...and since he last saw Dawn, his one-time lover. But as Tucker and Dawn grapple with a desire that never died, they must also face the shared shadow from their pasts. Both have the same question--has Jason Frost come back from the dead to hunt again? And this time, will he succeed in killing the victim who got away?

Tucker and Dawn have an intense history.  She was abducted by a serial killer called the Iceman.  The Iceman was Jason Frost…Tucker’s brother.

It’s easy to get pulled into Author Cynthia Eden’s Before the Dawn.  The story kicks off with killer suspense and never lets up until the final page.

I thoroughly enjoyed Before the Dawn.  Tucker and Dawn have painful circumstances that connect them.  This makes their reunion rife with powerful emotions.  I couldn’t get enough scenes with these two.  As always Ms. Eden provides the reader with an excellent mystery and thrilling suspense. Before the Dawn is a great read!
