When one falls 


Crime reporter Mari Alvarez was never able to solve her mother’s murder ten years ago. But when a woman is gunned down on the doorstep of her West Tampa neighborhood, Mari can’t shake the eerie sense of connection. The others will break 


Now there have been two murders in two days. Each crime scene awash with arcane cluesand without a trace of DNA from the killer. And for each victim, a doll. The first is missing an eye. The second is missing a heart. But are these clues leading to the killer...or messages for Mari? Unless she plays the game.. 


Caught up in a maelstrom of Old-World superstition, secrets, and ties to her own past, Mari has only one option. Put the puzzle together before someone else dies—even if it destroys her career. But there’s no escaping the hungry spider’s web when it’s been made just for you... 


By day, Linda Hurtado Bond is an award-winning journalist with Tampa’s Fox 13. By night, she’s an award-winning author of thrillers. She’s won 13 Emmy awards, numerous Society of Professional Journalists and Associate Press awards as well as a Florida Bar award and an Edward R. Murrow award. A breast cancer survivor, she’s also active in the Tampa community with the American Cancer Society, Hooked on Hope, and The Shoot for a Cure, raising money and awareness any chance she gets. Linda met her husband Jorge while on assignment in Cuba, covering Pope John Paul the Second's visit with Fidel Castro. Twenty-some years later they've raised five kids - a doctor, a nurse, a pilot, a paramedic firefighter, and an aspiring psychologist. Linda is a graduate of the University of Georgia, and her baby is heading to the rival University of Florida. A lover of drama and conflict (in books) Linda now has a divided house. It’s a busy life! But she also finds time for her passions, her husband Jorge, world travel, classic movies, and solving a good mystery. 


"Edgy and entertaining. Layered. Smart. A fresh take on a serial killer thriller with Cuban American culture woven throughout. Linda Hurtado Bond has mastered fast-paced books that read like binging a streaming show. Hey, Netflix scoop this one up!!" — Sorboni Banerjee, Author and Emmy Award- Winning News Anchor
