Detective Morgan Brookes and Sergeant Ben Matthews are about to celebrate her birthday. However, a phone call to what turns out to be a gruesome murder scene interrupts their plans. Morgan is hit especially hard when she sees the barely identifiable corpse. Morgan, Ben and their colleagues begin interviews to try and see what they can do to identify the killer. One of those that are interviewed is a visiting vicar.
It doesn't take long for the body to be identified as a missing 17- year old teenager. As Morgan and the others work on this investigation, not only is the vicar on their radars, but they do wonder if perhaps the killer could be among their ranks. Perhaps more than ever before, Morgan can't help but to rely on her sixth sense when it comes to what is going on around them. When a tragedy that is too close to home happens, the Morgan and the others cannot help but be that much more vigilant.
One thing is for certain. This killer is smart and elusive. Then when another girl named Milly turns up missing, not only must Morgan work even harder to find the identity of the killer, but she must also strive to stay alive at the same time. Helen Phifer has kept this fabulous series strong with excellent stories and compelling characters and always leaves readers for a desire for more.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
