Nikki Hunt's latest case is almost too much to bear. As a Special Agent with the FBI, Nikki pretty much has seen it all. But this latest crime scene is a brutal slaying of four people, with three of them dead. It seems that someone wanted the entire family dead, but one of the victims is not related. The surviving victim might hold the answers Nikki needs to find the killer'
Identifying the young woman found dead at the seen is only the first of many clues Nikki must unearth in order to find the person responsible. Since the girl found at the scene was a local student, Nikki goes to the college to interview other students. Things are slowly coming together but not before two more young people go missing.
While Nikki is navigating this difficult case, she has a personal battle on her hands. Her ex in-laws are planning to sue for custody of Nikki's five-year-old daughter Lacey. While it is true that the difficult cases Nikki handles take her away from Lacey at times, Nikki makes sure that she is well cared for and is well adjusted.
As in previous books in this thrilling series, Nikki must strike a fine balance between her professional and personal life, and she definitely proves more than adept in just about any situation.
I have read this series from the beginning, and Nikki has endured quite a bit. So much, in fact, that this is a series that should be read in order, as there is a lot of back story that avid readers of this genre might miss otherwise. Stacy Green has written another stunning book in an amazing series. This book, like all of the previous books in the Nikki Hunt series, have exciting premises, rapid pacing, shocking twists and turns, and always end with a thrilling climax. I await the next installment with eager anticipation.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
