In the thin glow of moonlight, a mess of auburn curls gleams against the rocks. Hands bound, the girl’s fragile body is limp and still. Seconds later, a wall of raging white water crashes down, swallowing her whole…A knock on the door late in the evening can only mean trouble for Detective Josie Quinn, but fear chokes her at the news that the one of her own team is missing.

But the body they pull from the water is not Amber…Josie won’t sleep until she finds a name for the innocent girl left to drown, and the meaning of the numbers scribbled in a tattered pink diary found on Amber’s desk. But when the trail leads her to a twisted truth about Amber’s family, Josie wonders if anyone really knew her at all?Her team crumbling around her, Josie must stay strong and focused to get the job done. But as prime suspects start going missing, and rumors of an argument the night Amber disappeared surface, could one of her own staff be to blame?Finding Amber alive is Josie’s only chance of knowing the truth and stopping a dangerous killer in their tracks. But as a blizzard closes in, how many more precious lives will be snatched before she can?




What can I say about this series that I have not said before? It is, was and will be a great series you just have to read.

Josie is a great character. What does not kill you makes you stronger, certainly is a saying she knows very well. She has been through a lot. It did not kill her and it makes her very strong. Strong maybe not physically but strong willed and stubborn in the best possible way.

A lead detective without at great team to work with is like a café without beer as we say in Belgium. And isn’t is true? Without their help and support, without superb teamwork, a lot of killers would slip away, unpunished. But each killer who dares to do something in her region, should know by now the best way to act would to surrender immediately. 😉

A wonderful, suspenseful story that had me guessing until the end. I had my eye on the wrong one once again.

I enjoyed it very much. 5 stars for this great book.

Thank you, Lisa Regan and Bookouture
