Watching her friend dragged away in handcuffs, Josie couldn’t believe for one second that Gretchen had killed that poor boy. Confession or not, someone else was involved. She would find out who…

When the body of a young student is found on the driveway of a local Denton home, a photograph pinned to his collar, Detective Josie Quinn is first on the scene. The house belongs to Gretchen Palmer, a dedicated member of Josie’s team, missing for the last twenty-four hours.

Working around the clock, Josie is stopped in her tracks when Gretchen hands herself in to the police. She knows that there’s no way Gretchen could ever be a killer, so why would she confess to a murder she didn’t commit? 

Digging deep into Gretchen’s secretive life, Josie uncovers a link between the boy, the photograph and a devastating case in Gretchen’s past. But just when Josie thinks she has it all figured out, the bodies of a young couple surface on the other side of town. Can Josie get to the truth in time to save her friend from a life in prison or certain death? 

 

 

My review

The fourth book in the series but I have only read two of them and with this one the auhtor has hit bull’s eye once again.

This story kept me on edge the whole time. Normally it does not effect me in real life but now I felt ill at ease because it was so creepy. I even checked the locks a second time before I went to bed last night. It is a first class example of how an author can transmit the atmosphere of a book into the life of a reader. Needless to say that it shows how gifted she is.

I won’t forget this story easily. I still remember the previous one vividly as well. That only happens with very bad or very good ones and this author’s books belong in the latter category with the any doubt.

The author creates wonderful and interesting characters and keeps your eyes glued to the pages due to her writing style and imagination.

I am looking forward to the next part. 5 stars are hardly enough for this masterpiece.

Thank you, Lisa Regan, Bookouture and Netgalley.
