All Fall Down
(Lucy Kendall Series, #4)
by Stacy Green
A killer rises…
Determined to start over, Lucy Kendall moves to Washington, D.C., and takes a position with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
But the past doesn’t want to let her go.
When a police officer walks into her office and tells her the unthinkable, she knows she has to go back. But it’s too late. The gauntlet has been dropped, and Lucy has no choice but to play a sadistic killer’s game.
Unable to trust anyone, Lucy scrambles to find the truth. But time runs out, and she must do the one thing she swore she’d never do: tell the truth about the people she’s killed.
Will Lucy’s ultimate sacrifice be enough?

The front door stood ten feet ahead and to my left. I dropped lower, damned near crawling. My knees skimmed the cement as I hit the entrance. I leaned back against the recessed area, catching my breath. Even with his private entrance, Tesla must depend on his parents’ security system for protection.
His time had come. Daddy’s boy was going to give me answers.
I slipped the pick into the lock and twisted.
A sound behind me. A twig snapping?
Frozen from the inside out, I forced myself to turn my head and checked the vast expanse of property. Nothing to see. I couldn’t even make out the mailbox.
Something above me buzzed. My head jerked up, eyes watering.
A security camera.
My desperation had made me careless.
That was probably why I didn’t sense the blow coming.
A heavy fist connected to the tender spot at the base of my neck, propelling me forward. I slammed against the door hard enough pain shot across my forehead.
I reached back for the gun, but he was too quick, snatching my arm and twisting it tightly enough I thought it would break free of the socket.
“I knew you’d come back.” Tesla’s breath stank of pot and whiskey. “I just didn’t think it would be tonight. But I’m happy to see you.” He shoved his pelvis against my back. “What’s this?”
Tesla pulled the gun from my belt. “Were you going to shoot me?”
“Not until you told me where my friend is.”
He pulled my right arm harder. It would break soon if I didn’t do something. I summoned all my strength and drove my left elbow backwards, but he’d anticipated it, dancing out of the way. He caught that arm too, trapping both of them behind my back and pressing me against the front door. “I don’t have your friend. But I’ll take you.”
“No you won’t. You’re not interested.” Any excitement from this came from his need for revenge, not to have me.
He laughed, his hot breath teasing my ear. “I’ll work something out.”
Where had he put the gun? He must have it on him.
“I’ll kill you first.”
