My Review:

What a dramatic read, right from the start,
And with an ending that pulls on the strings of your heart.
A very different and moving, emotional discovery
That leads to unexpected, loving recovery.

When the body is found in the marshy Outer Bank 
Detective Casey White looked and her heart sank.
The victim is her ex husband and he's been killed
And discovering nearby skeletal remains leaves her chilled.

All the clues suggest her ex-husband was on the track
To discover what happened to their child fifteen years back.
He must have been getting close to finding the truth and so
Someone decided he must go.

As the team piece together the various clues 
The killer obviously thinks they've nothing to lose
Get ready for a fire, as the killer has her in his sights
Maybe she'll discover what happened that dreadful night?

Such a moving story of loss and grief
Finding what happened would be a relief
But hidden away where the truth is concealed
There's peril and more danger as secrets are revealed.

This crime thriller is also about family and friends
About seeking to discover what happened in the end.
The character interactions make them all seem so real
And that ending is so absolutely full of the feels.

Such a superb series, one I highly recommend
With detectives and a team that now feel like friends.
This is the fifth book in this series and I say
 If you haven't already done so, read the first four without delay!

For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
I throughly enjoyed reading it and this is my honest review.

Book Description:

Looking down at the familiar, pale and lifeless face floating in the salty waters of the marsh, her blood freezes. It’s a face she hasn’t seen for years, but used to know so well…

When Detective Casey White is called to a murder scene in the Outer Banks saltmarshes, she’s devastated to find the strangled body of her ex-husband—father of her missing daughter Hannah. And nearby, an older, unidentifiable body is buried too… but how are these bones linked to her ex?

Painful memories flood back as Casey desperately searches his apartment, surrounded by photos of them happy with their little girl. Finding a notepad with the name of the hospital where Hannah was last seen scrawled on it, Casey realizes her ex recently discovered something about their child’s disappearance. But who was trying to silence him?

Then forensics show the bones belong to a sweet young nurse who worked at the same hospital. Delving into hospital records, Casey is shocked to learn she once held Hannah as a little baby…

Her boss insists she can’t work such a personal investigation, but Casey is in too deep. Interviewing all the staff at the hospital, she’s sure one of the doctors is acting suspiciously… and that night, Casey wakes up barely able to breathe as flames devour her home.

Now she’s in the killer’s sights. To finally catch this twisted monster and learn what happened to her stolen girl, Casey will have to risk everything…

An absolutely unputdownable thriller that will have you gasping at the twists and turns. Fans of Karin Slaughter, Lisa Gardner and Robert Dugoni will be completely addicted.
