Eagerly pre ordered for delivery to my Kindle on release day!
Devoured when time would allow over the corse of a week!
Detective Dean Matheson has returned to his hometown to begin his new job and put the traumatic events of his past behind him – but his fresh start doesn’t last long when the local area is hit by a series of strange disappearances and twisted killings.
A nameless girl – badly beaten and dumped close to a mysterious new church, a shocking murder scene discovered in the diner apartment and a young boy missing without a trace.
This is an excellent episode in the life of Dean Mattheson that hurtles along keeping the reader hooked from the first line. Even though this is Wendy’s third book in the series, it stands alone and should move to the top of your TBR pile immediately.
Eve Valdez joins Dean at Maple Valley Police Department and together they work on a number of incidents which seem to be unconnected as and they embark on a race against time to find the missing boy!
Without spoiling the story, I particularly liked reading Dean’s thoughts and feelings towards his nemesis, trying to understand why and how. Wendy has written this so well you feel as if they are your own thoughts as a reader in Dean’s shoes. She captures a policeman’s lot perfectly.
5 Gripping stars, out of 5!
