My Review:

Thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley, too,
For my copy of this book, this is my honest review:

This story is a chilling crime thriller
Involving revenge, torture and a serial killer.
The first such crime was twenty-four years ago
And the perpetrator is now dying in jail, so
Who are the killers involved after all this time?
Can they be brought to justice and pay for their crime?

Agent Tori Hunter and Will Braddock lead the investigation
Whilst also exploring their close, very personal relation.
There are secrets and facts from the earlier crime
That will impinge on what has happened this time.
With team members Steak and Egg along, too,
Let's hope together they'll be a successful in all they do!

This is another brilliant, dramatic, action-packed plot
A totally engrossing, a page-turner, I enjoyed a lot.
The characters, relationships and plot is so great,
Making it so easy to them all to relate.
I have no hesitation at all to highly recommend to you
This book and series if you enjoy crime thrillers, too!

About the Book: 

The lights of her parents’ cabin just visible through the woods, the girl carefully curls up amongst the reeds, her knees pulled tight to her chest. Terrified, the only sound she makes is the pounding of her heart, but she hears the stranger searching… if she keeps silent, will she be safe?

When Agent Tori Hunter is urgently called to the murder scene of Dan and Heidi Newman, she finds their throats slit, and Dan tied up: forced to watch his wife lose her life. Tori’s first thought is for their seventeen-year-old daughter Cara who is nowhere to be found. Will this popular young girl be the next victim?

A broken bracelet is the one clue left at the scene, but the team are running in circles until Tori finally tracks down Cara hiding in the woods. Sobbing, the devastated girl says all she remembers is a flash of a man’s face as she was chased through the forest…

Desperate to find the monster behind this crime, Tori pieces together the broken chain: and it leads her to an elderly lady living alone nearby. When the woman won’t speak to police, Tori senses that although it means breaking all the rules, introducing Cara will show this lonely soul what’s at stake. And once inside her house, Cara gasps when she sees a framed photo on display. It’s the man who chased her…

But then another local couple is murdered in their isolated home, another husband forced to watch his worst nightmare unfold. As more couples lose their lives, can Tori keep Cara, her one witness, safe from this vicious killer? And can she track him down before more innocent families are torn apart?

An absolutely addictive and mind-blowing crime thriller that will have you glued to the pages through each and every twist, until the final shocking conclusion. Fans of Kendra Elliot, Robert Dugoni and Lisa Jackson won’t be able to put this down.
