Criminal psychologist Audrey Harte is returning home after seven years.
Less than 24 hours later, her best friend is murdered.
Now, Audrey is both the prime suspect and the only person who can solve the case. . .
It Takes One is the opening to a thriller series where a criminal psychologist uses her own dark past to help law enforcement catch dangerous killers.
As a child Kate Kessler seemed to have a knack for finding trouble, and for it finding her. A former delinquent, Kate now prefers to write about trouble rather than cause it, and spends her days writing about why people do the things they do. She lives in New England with her husband.
