I will admit to having known who the unsub was right from the start but that didn't diminish the reveal if any thing I think it made it better because my heart was in my mouth as soon as he stepped in to 'help' and now the book is finished I can say hand on heart that this is one Damon fine romantic suspense that is hot on the romance, burning hot, and hot on the suspense, scarily so. During my stint as the world's surliest receptionist, I took my first stab at writing. It would be fine if this had been written five or more years ago, before the show really became popular, but it's from last year, so it was a strange decision on Alden's part. Did the inspiration for Beg for Mercy and the books that followed come to you when you were writing the Gemini books, or were your ideas twigged from a different source? The mystery of who is the culprit is revealed only at the end and it is good!

Lea: Many authors have told me their characters talk to them, in essence telling them their story. Kate and Tommy had left the house to be alone outside on the beach at the time of the kidnapping instead of keeping keeping an eye on Kate's brother.
