Book #1 of the Body Series

Seneca Thomas is an agent with XCEL, a secret government taskforce charged with capturing the dangerous shapeshifters that have infiltrated New York City, passing for humans. Her Native American heritage gives her a special gift—the ability to see the shapeshifters for what they are. Unfortunately, this doesn’t make killing them any easier.

Max Dempsey was on a refugee transport that crashed to Earth, setting thousands of shapeshifters free to do what they do best—replicate the local population in order to survive. Among them is the shifter who murdered Max’s wife. Now Max’s only desire is to find him and destroy him—until he gets partnered with Seneca, a sexy, fearless agent who would kill every one of his kind—including Max—if given the chance.

As a criminal army of shifters assembles under the city determined to wreak havoc and destroy humanity, Seneca and Max will have to embrace their explosive chemistry, for only by trusting in each other and their power can they hope to stop the growing evil.

New York City, March 16

“Wait ’til I tell my wife we got Jack the Ripper.” Seneca looked over at her partner, Riley, sitting in the driver’s side of the surveillance van.

She said, “A little premature, don’t you think? We haven’t even seen him yet.”

Riley turned to her, the lone streetlight illuminating his balding head and cocky grin. “Never say premature to a guy, Seneca.”

He tipped his half-eaten hamburger in the direction of the Harlem warehouse half a block away, shadowed in darkness and disrepair. “As soon as that Shifter comes home, we’re going to waltz in there and kick his sorry ass.”

She shook her head at Riley’s ability to take every life and death situation and make it sound like a trip to McDonald’s. Bringing down an alien shapeshifter was strictly for the pros.

“Jack might give himself up, you know. That would spoil all your fun,” she told him.

Riley laughed and almost choked on his burger. “No way. Shifters never go down without a fight.”

“Seneca Thomas works for a covert government agency whose purpose is to rid the planet of Shifters, a race of aliens that utilize human DNA to blend into society. Seneca tracks down violent Shifters using her unique ability to “see” them, despite their disguises. When her partner is killed, rugged, handsome Max Dempsey replaces him, much to Seneca’s annoyance and suspicion. Max is a Shifter, and became an agent to discover the identity of his wife’s murderer, a traitor who almost destroyed the Shifter race on their last planet. An immediate attraction is present, but danger looms as a madman is creating an all-Shifter Army in the tunnels of NYC. In this novel the action is non-stop and the sexual tension between Max and Seneca sizzles. Barry has created a butt-kicking yet vulnerable heroine and a story that keeps readers going until the last page.” -PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
