The Marissa Ambrose Witness Series


How do you stop a killer you can't even see?

It’s been two years since Detective Marissa Ambrose nearly lost her life working the Couple’s Killer case, but time hasn’t stopped the vivid nightmares. She still carries the heavy guilt of her partner’s death, and the Seattle Police Department refuses to support her theory that the suspect they arrested had an accomplice. With her ex-husband regretfully out of the picture, Marissa was supposed to be focusing on adjusting back to something resembling normalcy in her quiet tourist town. Then the letters came.

Unmarked envelopes full of photographs have been arriving at Marissa’s door. Candid shots of her at home. Now, Marissa is certain the missing murderer is stalking her, tracking her every move to finish what he started. As she obsesses over the strange images, the Seattle PD unexpectedly asks for her help. A serial killer is on the loose and targeting members of the Port Townsend community. Despite a personal connection to the first victim, Marissa agrees to pin her badge on once more.

The photographs are piling up and the suspect can’t be seen by surveillance cameras. Like a ghost, this killer is haunting her.

Secrets and Photographs is written by A.K. Ramirez. It is my first exposure to this author, and it will not be the last. I found myself drawn into the Marissa and her life within the first few pages. Marissa is a detective on leave with the Seattle Police Department. She experienced something harrowing and she still suffers from PTSD. 

Marissa is convinced that those behind the horrible memories are still out there. She tries to tell the police, but it does not seem that they believe her. She gets photographs sent to her. The photographs capture her doing every day life. Suddenly she is called to assist with a murder investigation. Since there are the two cases going on, the author has packed in a lot of twists, turns and the potential for a romance. 

I love main characters who are flawed. Marissa has some guilt from the death of her former partner. She pushed her ex husband away. She moved back into her childhood home. She does not want to open up in therapy. Her service dog, Ellie is the best. 

The story is well written. The book will draw you in within the first few pages. I cannot wait until the next book in the series. I am completely invested. 

Thank you to the author, publisher and Partners in Crime Book Tours for allowing me to read a copy of this book - all thoughts are my own.
