My Review:

Every moment counts in this intriguing crime thriller
Involving a serial 'mother and daughter' killer.
This case is a race against time
As Amanda Steele seeks the perpetrator of these crimes.

There are red herrings and surprises as the case unfolds,
With family dramas and lies that are told.
A gripping read from the start to the end
So give yourself time reading it to spend!

Spousal abuse, a refuge and hospital, too,
All are involved as Amanda reveals each clue.
A missing mum and daughter add impetus to the case
As finding them alive begins to feel like a race.

A story filled with tragedies from the present and past
With Amanda's boss revealing secrets at last.
A fascinating investigation and great read, too,
I have no hesitation in highly recommending to you.

For my complementary copy, I say thank you,
As I share with you this, my honest review.

About the Book: 

Faint sunlight dapples the two figures lying on the ground. The mother cradles her daughter close to her side, a stuffed toy elephant next to them. Leaves from the tall trees fall onto their faces, but neither moves to brush them off.

When a dog walker in a local Virginia park finds the bodies of a mother and daughter, Detective Amanda Steele is first on the scene. Her own daughter has a toy just like the girl’s elephant and seeing the child like this is her worst nightmare come true. Heartbroken, she vows to get justice.

They quickly get an ID-Jill Archer and six-year-old Charlotte were reported missing last week, but interviewing Jill’s husband, Roy, Amanda’s gut tells her he is hiding something. When the autopsy reveals a terrible pattern of bruises, she’s certain that a domestic argument escalated out of control, and tiny Charlotte got caught in the crossfire. But just as Amanda is about to arrest Roy, another grave is found, containing another mother and daughter.

Desperate for a lead, she goes to every place the women could have been targeted, and learns from a concerned ER nurse about Leanne Reilly and her young daughter, Gracie, who haven’t been heard from in a week. Amanda hopes that Leanne has simply left her deadbeat husband, but she’s gripped by the fear that they are the killer’s latest victims. Now every second counts for Amanda to find the family and stop a little girl’s nightmare before it ends in tragedy…

A totally compulsive and gripping crime thriller. The next unputdownable read for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine.
