Nikki Hunt #1
Madison walked through the fallen snow, looking left and right. It had been Kaylee’s idea to use the trail through the forest; she said no one would follow them. But Madison lost sight of Kaylee for a moment and when she found her again she wasn’t alone…
In the remote forests of Stillwater, Minnesota, you can scream for days and no one will hear you. So when the bodies of two fifteen-year-old girls are discovered frozen in the snow, Special Agent Nikki Hunt is sure the killer is local: someone knew where to hide the girls and thought they would never be found.
Though Nikki hasn’t been home in twenty years, she knows she must take over the case. The Sheriff’s department in Stillwater has already made a mistake by connecting the girls’ murders to those of a famous serial killer, refusing to consider the idea that the killer could be someone from town.
Then another girl’s body is found, a red silk ribbon tied in her hair, and Nikki realizes that the killer has a connection to her own dark past, and the reason she left Stillwater.
Nikki is not the only person in town who wants those secrets to stay hidden. Will she be able to face her demons before another child is taken?
This is a great, great book! I wanted to keep on reading because I wanted to know who the bad guy was, but I did not want it to end either. Choices, choices, choices. 🙂
The author gave us an array of suspects to choose from and I really could not make up my mind. It must be him… Oh no, can it be her…? No, not possible. I am sure now. It’s definitely him… Those sentences kept flying through my mind constantly and I love it.
Nikki Hunt is also a very likable character: tough as nails when she has to be, soft as butter when needed. She is surrounded by a team with a lot of expertise.
Nikki is fighting her own demons and then she is called to her hometown again… What will this do to her and how will the villagers react???
What more can I say about this book? Not a lot. I think the next few words will say it all: it’s a mustread! 5 stars.
Thank you, Stacy Green and Bookouture
