Detective Katie Scott has a very difficult case that she is now working on. When Carolyn Sable’s body is found at a summer camp where Katie went as a teenager, she starts to have a lot of memories. She loved that camp and all of its activities, until her best friend Jenny disappeared.

Not only do they find Caroline’s body, but they find two other bodies. And, near one of the bodies there are a bunch of newspaper clippings about Katie‘s previous cases. What is it about these murders that involve Katie and will she be able to find out what is going on now and even get answers about Jenny? Then there is the fact that there is a race against time to stop this killer before anyone else is murdered. 

These bodies all have something very specific about them, And Katie must determine what the possible connection to the past has to do with the impending danger she herself faces.  In fact, the closer she gets to putting the pieces of this difficult case together just might make her the next victim. 

Katie is a remarkable detective. A military vet with PTSD at times makes it difficult for her to strike an even balance. Fortunately she has a wonderful partner in detective Sean McGavin as well as her faithful canine partner Cisco. Haunted by the loss of her friend Jenny definitely gives this book a different flair. Excellent pacing, incredible tension, the constant element of danger, as well as relatable characters, all make this next book in this fabulous series a truly worthwhile read. 

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
