Product Description


A GRIPPING SERIAL KILLER THRILLER


Her blue eyes wide open, glossed over. A few specks of sand clung to her long, dark lashes. Her beautiful face, immobile, covered in sparkling flecks of sand. Her lips slightly parted as if to let a last breath escape.

Who is the beautiful girl found at dawn, on a deserted stretch of golden sand beach? What is her secret?

FBI Special Agent Tess Winnett searches for answers relentlessly. With each step, each new finding, she uncovers unsettling facts leading to a single possible conclusion: Dawn Girl is not the only victim. Her killer has killed before.

Hiding a terrible secret of her own, Special Agent Tess Winnett faces her inmost fears, in a heart-stopping race to catch a killer who’s getting ready to end yet another life. Will she find the killer in time? Will she be able to stop him? At what cost?

The rules of the game have changed.
So has the textbook definition of a serial killer.


Special Agent Tess Winnett is the bold, direct, and short-fused heroine of Dawn Girl. Putting her life on the line, she doesn’t pull any punches, searching only for the truth, and for the man who takes lives on her watch. Intelligent, resourceful, and uncompromising, Tess will take readers on a memorable, white-knuckled journey in this suspenseful, gripping serial killer thriller.

Fans of David Baldacci and James Patterson will enjoy Leslie Wolfe.

A beautiful blue-eyed girl is found dead at dawn, on a deserted stretch of beach in South Florida. Who is she, and how did she come to be here?
The local police involved are Detectives Todd Fradella and Gary Michowsky from the Palm Beach Police Department. They are joined by FBI Special Agent Tess Winnett, directed by her boss to work with them. Tess comes with her own baggage, as will become apparent as the story unfolds. She is relentless and driven, and not easy to work with. But she is committed to finding the killer, and is convinced that this girl is not the killer’s only victim. And, being a member of the FBI, means that Tess has access to resources over and above those available to the police.

Can Fradella, Michowsky and Winnett work together effectively enough to find the killer before he takes another life? Winnett has a bit of a track record for aggravating others, and she knows that she needs to lift her game otherwise she may be out of a job. Even brilliant agents need to work as part of a team!

This novel held my attention from the first page. It moves at a rapid pace and, in Tess Winnett, Ms Wolfe has developed a frustrating, likeable and vulnerable character. There’s plenty of tension in the story, and a few twists. One aspect raised my eyebrows: there’s what I’ll call an amazing coincidence towards the end of the story which didn’t really work for me. The coincidence (no spoilers here) may well provide satisfaction to some readers.

I finished the novel hoping that there will be more novels featuring FBI Special Agent Tess Winnett and also Detective Gary Michowsky. I’ve since discovered that Ms Wolfe has written a number of other novels (five thrillers) and that ‘Dawn Girl’ is intended to be the first in a new series.

Note: My thanks to Italics Publishing for providing me with a free electronic copy of this novel for review purposes.

Dawn Girl by Leslie Wolfe is a well-written book in the psychological/crime/thriller genre.
Silently suffering from PTSD, FBI Special Agent Tess Winnett is great at her job, but she has zero interpersonal skills and with high stress levels, her behaviours manifest themselves as antagonistic. She is a complex person who pushes boundaries and colleagues' patience. Leslie thoughtfully created her with depth, so that she's also a sympathetic character (despite the flaws). Admirably, Tess has compassion for victims and focuses completely on solving the crimes for their sakes, so she's not mechanical in her approach.
After a young woman is found dead on a South Florida beach, Tess is assigned to help local detectives investigate. This is quite a scary scene, by the way, and there are many more to follow (some are even uncomfortable, but the imagery is impactful). It soon becomes apparent that the psycho killer is evil, cruel, dangerous and clever. Chilling!
I like how Leslie includes investigative procedures, details, information and musings, naturally. This is done via Tess, the FBI profiler and colleagues. In fact the multilayered, suspenseful and confronting plot is engaging from the start with intrigue, twists, quick pacing and a fluid feel. 
My only criticism is the conclusion is a little too convenient. Otherwise - what a cracker! I look forward to the next installment.
