“This is an excellent book… When you start reading, be sure you don’t have to wake up early!”
—Reader review for The Killing Game

FBI BAU special agent Harley Cole, as brilliant as she is at hunting serial killers, has bent the rules one too many times and, put on leave, decides to return to her small-town Southwestern roots and visit her dying father. But when a new killer strikes nearby, leaving a trail of women in abandoned desert mines, it hits close to home for Harley, eerily reminiscent of her sister’s unsolved case—and forces her to consider the local FBI field office’s desperate plea for help.

Nowhere Safe (A Harley Cole FBI Suspense Thriller—Book 1) is the debut novel in a new series by #1 bestselling mystery and suspense author Kate Bold.

Harley, reeling from her being put on leave, from her long-term relationship falling apart, and from her father’s dying, is hardly ready to return to her hometown, to its long-buried secrets, and her tortured past. She spent her life escaping this small town—but, as she settles back in, she wonders: might she have been wrong all this time?

Yet as more bodies surface and as every clue leads to a dead end, Harley, clashing with her new partner, realizes she’s in a race against time.

Will she save the next victim in time? Or will the endless desert, and her dark past, swallow her for good?

A page-turning and harrowing crime thriller featuring a brilliant and tortured FBI agent, the HARLEY COLE series is a riveting mystery, packed with non-stop action, suspense, twists and turns, revelations, and driven by a breakneck pace that will keep you flipping pages late into the night. Fans of Rachel Caine, Teresa Driscoll, and Robert Dugoni are sure to fall in love.

Books #2-#5 in the series—NOWHERE LEFT, NOWHERE TO RUN, NOWHERE LIKE THIS, and NOWHERE GIRL—are also available.

  • Good

    By Swan rock
    Well written. Not x-rated, good writing, does not need curse words to fill the pages.
  • No where safe

    By MDTAW
    Excellent Thriller Characters are so real Plot continually thickens
  • Good read

    By ghosty676
    It was a good storyline but very predictable. I was hoping to be surprised by who did it but it was so obvious.
  • So So at Best

    By SW MO
    Poor character development and not realistic on police work. An FBI agent can’t close cases and get successful prosecution by relying on gut instinct. Based on this book, Harley’s instincts aren’t all that accurate anyway.
  • Thrilling and captivating

    By JiveMasterWhack/Kaitlyn
    Do not read if you have work In the morning. So good you can’t put it down once you start. This would be a great show!
  • Enthralling

    Her past and her future is all unresolved, going from one killer case to another. Till she bent the rules, with time to look at her past when there was another killer in her home town to deal with. Good adventure to the end. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion
