My Review

Wow, this author has done it again, what a riveting read!
If you enjoy crime thrillers this is a book that you need!
It may be the thirteenth in this series, it's true,
But this will work as a standalone, too.

Detective Josie Quinn can't believe it when
A member of her team goes missing again.
This is the start of an investigation and a race
As other family members go missing from their place.

With another member of the team as a potential suspect, too,
And Amber's hidden diary providing a weird clue,
Josie and the team need to decipher what it means
Can they find Amber? That remains to be seen!

What a family crime drama filled with mystery,
Secrets, revenge, crimes and history.
As Christmas approaches, can they solve it all
Before Santa is due to call?

I love the characters, complete with their flaws
And the plot twists that make you give pause.
It is a page turner and such a great read
Crime thriller readers, this is one that you need!

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

About the Book: 

In the thin glow of moonlight, a mess of auburn curls gleams against the rocks. Hands bound, the girl’s fragile body is limp and still. Seconds later, a wall of raging white water crashes down, swallowing her whole…

A knock on the door late in the evening can only mean trouble for Detective Josie Quinn, but fear chokes her at the news that the one of her own team is missing. No one has seen Denton PD’s beautiful Press Liaison Amber for days. Sweet-natured and totally dedicated to the job, she’d never let her colleagues down. A message scrawled on the frosted windscreen of Amber’s car leads Josie to a nearby dam. But the body they pull from the water is not Amber…

Josie won’t sleep until she finds a name for the innocent girl left to drown, and the meaning of the numbers scribbled in a tattered pink diary found on Amber’s desk. But when the trail leads her to a twisted truth about Amber’s family, Josie wonders if anyone really knew her at all?

Her team crumbling around her, Josie must stay strong and focused to get the job done. But as prime suspects start going missing, and rumors of an argument the night Amber disappeared surface, could one of her own staff be to blame?

Finding Amber alive is Josie’s only chance of knowing the truth and stopping a dangerous killer in their tracks. But as a blizzard closes in, how many more precious lives will be snatched before she can?

An absolutely astounding crime thriller that will keep you up all night and leave you sleeping with the lights on. This gripping rollercoaster ride, perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine, will have you TOTALLY HOOKED!
