My Review:

This is a crime thriller series I can't resist
And this is a story that shouldn't be missed.
Lieutenant Noah Fraley and Detective Josie Quinn
Must be thinking they just can't win!

Returning after their delayed honeymoon they see
A desperate teenager running to stay free.
Next appears from the foggy gloom,
Another teenager who has met her doom.

Two young friends attacked but why?
What had made someone want them to die?
They were on their way to work at a local hotel.
Was it something there that rang their death knell?

A gripping, intriguing and enthralling crime thriller
With secrets galore and more than one killer
It had me turning the pages, not wanting to put it down,
Any interruptions were met with a frown!

A riveting read, a great addition to this series
Although book fifteen, my enjoyment never wearies.
Josie, Noah and the team are so familiar now
They feel like folks I really know somehow!

If you enjoy crime thrillers, this is one book you'll need.
It truly is a thoroughly enjoyable read
For my complementary copy, I say thank you,
As I share with you this, my honest review.

Description:

Through swirling dawn fog, they follow the trail of discarded items at their feet: a tube of glittery lip gloss; a cell phone; a cracked make-up compact, broken chunks of ivory powder spilling into the grass. Then the mist partsjust for a secondto reveal a beautiful young girl on the ground, her pale lips frozen forever in a silent scream…

On a winding mountain road into the small town of Denton, Pennsylvania, Detective Josie Quinn finds the body of a local teenage girl, Dina Hale. The sight of plum-colored bruises gathering around the girl’s neck pierces Josie’s heart, but the discovery of a second girl’s empty purse in the dirt nearby gives her a flicker of hope that one person, at least, made a lucky escape.

Dina’s parents are grief-stricken as the town rallies together in a desperate search for the second girl, Alison Mills, who waitressed with Dina at a local hotel. The two best friends were on their way to a shift when they were attacked. Josie was too late to save Dina, but she won’t rest until Alison is home safe.

Hitting a dead-end with interviews, Josie thinks she’s on to something when a photo surfaces suggesting Alison was romantically involved with one of the hotel staff. But when Josie arrives at the man’s house to find a bullet in his head, and the house ransacked, the case comes crashing down.

Evidence of frantic searching at both crime scenes has Josie convinced a twisted killer is on a hunt for something very personal and precious. And that they won’t stop until they find it. But how many innocent lives will be destroyed before Josie can uncover the missing piece at the heart of this deadly puzzle? And what sacrifices will she have to make to find Alison alive?

An absolutely unputdownable crime thriller from an Amazon, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine. WARNING: will keep you up all night flipping pages until dawn!
