The tragic death of a teen girl hits Detective Lexi Bennett hard. While at the beginning it looks as if the girl took her own life, it seems something sinister has occurred. Sadly, Lexi’s nephew Sam knew the young girl and it is only after the death of another teen that Lexi pays closer attention to Sami’s distraught nature.
Meanwhile, something very sinister is afoot and the reader knows knows what is going on. It is up to Lexi and her team to discover what is happening before another young life is lost.
Just as in the first book of this series, The Girls on Chalk Hill, Lexi proves to be a hardworking and sensitive detective who calls upon her own disturbing past to put everything she has into each case. In this second book, the fact that this case involves teenagers really hits home to Lexi. I couldn’t put this book down and am more than eager to continue this series.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
