This second entry in USA Today bestselling author Debra Webb’s Devlin & Falco series proves that sometimes the past is best left forgotten.

As veteran detectives of the Birmingham Police Department, Kerri Devlin and Luke Falco have seen it all. So when the city’s new hotshot deputy district attorney turns up dead as part of a double homicide, the partners immediately get to work.

But this is no ordinary case. Devlin and Falco quickly link the murdered DDA to one of their own: former BPD detective Sadie Cross. But Sadie’s fractured memory is yet another puzzle to decipher, as she only recalls bits and pieces of her violent past…a past that may hold clues to the motive behind the murders.

As the group slowly begins to unearth the truth, they soon discover that the more secrets are revealed, the more fatal the consequences. 


Birmingham detectives Kerri Devlin and Luke Falco are on the case when the deputy DA is one of the bodies discovered due to homicide. This second entry in the Devlin and Falco series takes off running. As Devlin and Falco delve deeply into the case things point to a former detective, Sadie Cross. Can the three of them work together to discover the killer?

As if Devlin's job isn't taking most of her time, she is concerned about her daughter Tori. There was an agressive attack at Tori's school, and Devlin is hoping that Tori was not inolved. I am glad that I am reading this book in order because there is already character growth. For Devlin and Falco, their partnership is going strong. For Tori, she experienced some difficulties in the first book in this series, Trust No One, that don't seem as apparent now, even with the situation going on at her school.

This compelling read explores the connection Sadie had with the victim, and what she is currently experiencing. Then there is the nonstop action and suspense in this book, with some surprises along the way. I love the layers in this book as well as the strong characterization. Immediately after reading this book, I jumped right into Can't Go Back.
