|Description||In the prologue of Pretenses, readers learn that an affluent Supreme Court nominee and her husband have been murdered several days before her confirmation hearing. They next day, another high-ranking member of Washington's elite circle is killed - and soon government officials are being picked off one by one.
The FBI is clueless. Who is doing the killing? And, more importantly, why? Enter Phoenix Perry: a tough, smart, and savvy FBI Agent known to hold her own against even the most lethal of criminals. Phoenix is supposed to be working on a serial rapist case, but is hand-picked by the President to find the identity of the assassin. Soon Phoenix finds that the two cases may be related - and that the culprit knows her every move.
