My Review:

Thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley, too
For this fantastic read, here’s my honest review.

Detective Casey White is making a steady recovery
When whilst out running she makes a shocking discovery.
In a remote locations she finds the body of a teen
Was she killed, why is she there, what does it mean?

A search of the location by her police teams 
The remains of a young girl, mummified it seems.
There’s a note, too, baffling and weird
And then more bodies are found, as she’d feared.

With two murder enquiries running at the same time
Will Casey and her team be able to solve the crime?
It is a story full of twists, turns and mystery
As well as links to Ancient Egyptian history!

A fascinating 5* read, with great characters who
Keep you turning the pages to discover what they do.
I’m loving reading this series and can’t wait to discover
More about Tracy and who is her mother!

About the Book: 

Strands of blonde hair escape from beneath the sheet and catch the dawn light creeping through the window. Silence falls as the fabric is drawn back to reveal the body of a young girl, her hands folded on her chest, her long lashes resting on her cold, pale cheeks.

When Detective Casey White finds the body of a teenager perfectly preserved in salt in an abandoned beach vacation home, her heart shatters. Tina Somners has been missing since she set off to meet her friends for spring break. With her own daughter missing too, Casey knows how devastated the girl’s parents will be at this tragic end to their search.

Pushing her pain aside, Casey delves into old files and gets her first lead: years ago, a man murdered his wife and left her the same way. But he’s been locked up in prison all this time…

Interviewing him, Casey is certain the now frail and elderly prisoner couldn’t have hurt Tina himself. But is he somehow pulling strings from behind bars?

Then another perfectly preserved body is found, a threatening note addressed to Casey herself clutched in the girl’s hand. Running out of time and leads, Casey is hit with a realization that turns her blood to ice: her own daughter could be next…

An absolutely unputdownable read that will have you reading late into the night and gasping at the shocking twists. Perfect for fans of Kendra Elliot, Robert Dugoni and Melinda Leigh.
