Sharon Eddy, nineteen, has been murdered. Detective Josie Quinn is pulled into the case and soon learns that the murder is connected to another case from years ago that took place in another county. There are other connections, and these involve her twin sister Trinity’s possible journalistic story, and even the medical examiner, Anya, who over the years has become a friend to Josie.
With the body recently found, and the long ago case resurfacing, Josie, her husband Noah, and others on their team are forced to work with an officer from another town, and at first they find more questions than answers.
In a lot of ways this case really starts with Anya and traces back to her previously abusive marriage. Her then husband left a permanent brand on her that Anya discovers on the recent murder victim. The connection is undeniable and this not only shakes Anya to her core, but also Josie, Noah, Mettner and others on the team. One of the biggest answers they are seeking is why is there a ten-year gap between the crimes, and while the suspect might seem obvious, what ties these crimes together.
Considering that things go beyond Anya and her disturbing past, Josie is also looking into what brings Trinity into these cases and how the past and present are colliding. With breakneck speed, the shocking story begins to unfold. Most of it is beyond tragic and the sense of loss for all concerned was palpable. Lisa Regan has kept this series alive and powerful, making this as well as the previous sixteen titles incredible reads, reads that kept my heart in my throat and much more.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
