Detective Katie Scott #2
Katie focuses her mind, trying to keep another anxiety attack at bay. The victim’s long brown hair is slick and wet, her body rigid in the grass. She looks more like a mannequin than the woman Katie had spoken with only yesterday, the woman she had promised to protect…
When a cold, naked body is discovered by a couple on a jog through the lush woodlands of Pine Valley, California, new recruit Detective Katie Scott is stunned to discover the victim is Amanda Payton – a much-loved local nurse and the woman at the heart of an unsolved case she’s been investigating whilst getting a grip on her crippling PTSD.
Weeks earlier, Amanda had run, battered and bruised, out into the headlights of a passing patrol car. She claimed to have just escaped a kidnapping, but with no strong evidence, the case went cold. The Pine Valley police made a fatal mistake…
Katie is certain the marks on Amanda’s wrists complete a pattern of women being taken, held captive and then showing up dead in remote locations around Pine Valley – and she won’t let someone die on her watch again.
But then a beautiful office worker with a link to the hospital where Amanda worked goes missing. With only days before the next body is due to show up, can Katie make amends for her past by saving this innocent life?
The first book in this series was hitting bull’s eye and now Katie is back!
We already saw when we first met her that she certainly is no kitty to handle without gloves. Despite everything she has been through she is determined like a dog with a bone. She does not give up until she has uncovered every detail and has put a stop to the culprit’s actions.
It does not matter how many hours you invest in your job, do not put love, family and friends on the backburner.
This was a creepy, complex and oh so captivating book. I just loved it. I hope Katie will be back soon. 5 stars.
