Detective Harlow Durant and her partner Lucas Park are going to be working on different cases, but somehow they eventually just might connect. For Harlow, the body of 16-year-old Mazie Winters has been discovered, and it doesn’t take long before even more bodies are found. For Lucas, he is working on a case involving bodies that were found in a cellar, a case that had turned cold years ago.
Since the bodies were found at an abandoned farm, Harlow tries to find the farms’s owners. One thing she finds almost immediately is that the farm had more than one owner, and this was in rapid succession. More than that, there have been rumors that something had been going on at that farm, and now Harlow is determined to find answers.
This case reaches deep for both Harlow and Lucas. Harlow cannot help but remember her disturbing past and Lucas also is reminded of a great loss that he has never found closure for. Both Harlow and Lucas work vigorously to put the pieces of these difficult cases together, and time appears to be running out.
This excellent third book in the Detective Harlow Durant series is both mysterious and fast-paced. As Harlow’s past disturbs her more and more as the series progresses, we just get to know more about what she experienced as a child. This book also gives insight into Lucas’s tragic past as well. Even so, this book would work well as a standalone and is one that should not be missed. Dea Poirier has whet my appetite for the fourth book in the series, especially after the intriguing cliffhanger ending.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
