From the Publisher

Mary Burton knows how to write a harrowing opening chapter. I’ve been lucky enough to work with this New York Times bestselling author for several years—this is our tenth book together!—and she always has my heart in my throat after just five pages. My pulse races thanks to Mary’s astute and terrifying characterizations of serial killers, and her rich, well-drawn romance subplots keep my blood moving. (Don’t worry: no one is romancing the serial killers!)

Never Look Back opens, as many of Mary’s books do, in the point of view of the killer. Readers find themselves riding alongside a methodical and meticulous man as he stalks the streets for his next victim. It’s unnerving—and engrossing. Watching as this killer, who prides himself on his preparation, is bested by the woman he tries to abduct is riveting. Little did he know he’d targeted determined and capable Agent Melina Shepard, who was walking the streets undercover, hoping to find him.

From there,
Never Look Back never lets up. With twists and swerves and thrills galore, this book is Mary Burton at her best. I’m excited to share it with you, and for you to discover the unrelenting, gritty world this author conjures so deftly.

- Alison Dasho, Editor

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Mary Burton loves writing suspense, researching law enforcement and forensic procedures, morning walks, baking, books, and tiny dachshunds. She also enjoys hunting down serial killers, which she does in her New York Times and USA Today bestselling novels of suspense and romance. Library Journal has compared her work to that of Lisa Jackson and Lisa Gardner, and Fresh Fiction likened her writing to that of James Patterson.

Mary is routinely featured among the top twenty writers in Amazon’s Author Rankings for romantic suspense, and her recent novel The Last Move claimed the number ten fiction slot in the Kindle eBooks Store.

Research is a favorite part of Mary’s day. She never tires of learning more about police work, evidence collection and analysis. She’s known for taking a hands-on approach, whether it means interviews with professionals in the field, forensic seminars or lessons at the firing range.

A Richmond native, Mary has lived there for most of her life. She is a graduate of Virginia’s Hollins University and worked in marketing before she began writing full time. Her first book was published in 2000 and she’s now the author of thirty-four published novels, five novellas and four works of contemporary women’s fiction written as Mary Ellen Taylor.

A member of International Thriller Writers, Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, Novelists, Inc., and Romance Writers of America, Mary is known for creating multiple suspense stories connected by characters, such as her recent The Forgotten Files novels. Her new book, Her Last Word, and The Last Move, break that mold.

When not traveling for research or visiting with readers at bookstores, book festivals and conferences, Mary remains very much a homebody. She and her husband spend time alternately enjoying and lamenting their empty nest and spoiling their four-legged babies Buddy, Bella and Tiki.
