Summary:
 Five years ago, Fiona was just a kid. But everything changed the night the Pit Viper came to town. Sure, he rid the quiet, idyllic suburb of Hamm of its darkest problems. But Fiona witnessed something much, much worse from Hamm’s adults when they drove him away. And now, the Pit Viper is back. Fiona’s not just a kid anymore. She can handle the darkness she sees in the Pit Viper, a DJ whose wicked tattoos, quiet anger, and hypnotic music seem to speak to every teen in town...except her. She can handle watching as each of her friends seems to be overcome, nearly possessed by the music. She can even handle her unnerving suspicion that the DJ is hell-bent on revenge. But she’s not sure she can handle falling in love with him.

Excerpt:
The Pit Viper had waved a hand in their faces. “You don’t need to know, and you don’t want to know. Saturday night, you keep your kids at home, and Sunday morning, your ‘problem’ will be solved. Then, one week from Sunday, I come back and you give me one hundred large, cash. Got it?”
Fiona had tried to read the council’s faces through the crack in the door. Most of them had looked suspicious, bu  many of them had seemed resigned. Even she had been reassured by the tone of his voice. He’d obviously meant business.
“And what if it...what if whatever you’re planning doesn’t work?” Aunt Emily had said in a soft, shaking voice. “What if our town is stuck with these...people?”
The DJ had turned to her, paused, said, “You’re the dead boy’s mom, aren’t you?” 
The council had cried out as one. Fiona  herself had felt a sting of rage, knowing the dead boy was her cousin.  
“Hey,” her dad had said, taking a step forward. The DJ had raised his palm to Robert Jones. Fiona had expected her dad to barrel through it, but he’d stopped, looking as confused by his compliance as Fiona had felt.
“I am terribly sorry for your loss,” the Pit Viper had said calmly.
