Some men are ice fishing and they caught something completely unexpected. Sadly, it was the body of seventeen-year-old teenage Kesha Williams. There goes FBI Special Agent Nikki Hunt's Christmas. This case brings back painful memories to Nikki. As it turns out the teenager had been snatched from a local mall, a mall where Nikki's own daughter had been a target just a year ago. Not only are the parents and media raising awareness of the girl's death, they want to make sure that the case is not dropped or buried. They feel like because Kesha was black, that the case could be buried. Nikki assures everyone involved that Kesha's case will get the attention it deserves.
When the body of another girl is found, Nikki is certain that this is a case involving a serial killer, and is sure that other bodies will be turned up. In fact, evidence soon proves that this serial killer has been around for a long time. Hoping to connect the dots as quickly as possible, especially has her fears are confirmed, there are indeed more bodies, Nikki and her team turn over every stone that they can.
While this sixth book in the Nikki Hunt series could be read as a standalone, there is a lot about Nikki's past that lovers of continuity will not want to miss, so I suggest reading this series in order. This latest installment has excellent pacing, a few surprising twists and turns, a villain that I did not guess, and a riveting conclusion. Stacy Green has definitely hit it out of the park with the brilliantly written and executed Her Frozen Heart.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
