A family torn apart. A botched investigation. She’ll stop at nothing to get answers.
US Marshal Regan Merritt never bought the FBI’s theory that her ten-year-old son’s murder was tied to her job. Yet as leads went cold, she’d had to walk away from the marshals, the case and her now ex-husband, Grant, who blamed her for Chase’s death.
After Regan receives a chilling voice mail from her former boss, Tommy, claiming new information about Chase’s murder, she can no longer stay away from her pain-filled past. Especially when Tommy’s murdered before she can return his call.
Now more than ever, Regan’s determined to find the truth, but the more she digs, the more evidence points to Grant as the killer’s true target. But Grant isn’t talking. As she tries to pin down her ex, Regan discovers something much bigger and far more sinister is at play—and she’s running out of people she can trust.
I was definitely intrigued with the character Regan Merritt in the first
book in this series, and I was thrilled to see there was a follow up.
The blurb does a good job with the synopsis, so I'm not going to give
many details past that, except to say that I really like Regan Merritt.
I get her.
Of course this is an emotional journey for Regan,
looking for her son's killer and some clues pointing to her ex-husband.
But all is not quite what it seems and it does take many pages for all
the clues to come into view.
The book starts out with a
devastating scene that hooked me for the next 24 hours as I devoured
this book. The pace of this was much quicker than the first book in the
series, and I liked that very much, although sometimes the clues of the
story were a bit hard to follow. No matter. I still had a great
experience reading this book.
This book just blew me away with
it's action and Regan's relentless pursuit of the truth, no matter how
much danger she may have been in. The pace of this is terrific, and I
didn't want to put this down. A terrific crime drama thriller with a
strong female character.
