A child has been taken. A family is out for revenge.
Riley Cooke is just one day old when he is stolen from the hospital. His young mother, Shelby, is beside herself. DC Lucy Murphy and her team face a race against time to find the vulnerable baby and bring him home – before the child’s grandfather, fearsome gangster Pete Baker, takes matters into his own hands.
Pete is sure he knows who’s behind baby Riley’s abduction, and he thinks they ought to pray Lucy finds them before he does. Because someone is going to pay dearly for causing this much pain to his family.
They say never stand between a gangster and his target. But that’s exactly what Lucy must do – because if Pete is wrong, innocent blood could flow.
There’s no going back. That’s very true. That’s why it’s important to think before you act, because once it’s done, it’s done and you will have to live with the consequences.
Sometimes you have the best intentions though and you are sure it will change everything for the better but what if the outcome is quite the opposite? Was it worth risking everything you had for? NO! But there’s no going back and you will have to work hard to crawl out of the deep pit you dug for yourself.
Detective Lucy Murphy and her team have to deal with a case that brings back a lot of bad memories for her. She is determined to put her personal feelings on the backburner and focus on catching the culprit, but thoughts keep whirling through her mind. Will she act on them or will she put them to rest, because there’s no going back. The past cannot be changed and some things are better left as they are. Maybe sometimes getting justice is not the most important thing?
I have loved every book in this series and I hope there will be a lot more to come. This one was maybe a bit less gritty, but my heart overflowed.
I had quite a few scenarios in my head about the outcome, but – I suppose you can guess what is coming next LOL – not one of them was the correct one. 😊
I never saw that coming and that’s what turns a great book into an amazing one. 5 stars
