My rating: 4 Stars
Rachel Prince is a child protection detective whose current case is that of investigating the apparently accidental death of a teen girl. Working alongside DS Mark Brickall, she leaves no stone unturned while struggling to prevent another murder from happening, especially once she unearths the true circumstances behind. After being approved for this title to review, I bought book one in this series, Lola is Missing, and read it just prior to reading this. Having done so familiarized me with some of the characters,
There are more twists and turn than in Lola is Missing, especially concerning Rachel's personal life. As a matter of fact, things almost hit too close to home for Rachel. If you read as many of these suspense thrillers as I do, it can occasionally become quite easy to ascertain the perpetrator. Although my assumptions were correct, this in no way diminished the effectiveness of this book. Despite the darkly and often disturbing nature of the crimes at hand, the book is quite compelling. I nearly read it in one sitting, only taking a brief nap overnight just to complete it. Definitely looking forward to book three in this series.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review.
