BLOG TOUR - Two Little Souls


Two children clutch each other tight, huddled together on a tiny raft and shivering in the ocean wind. Fear fills their matching hazel eyes. Slowly, little Tommy whispers: “We saw them kill Mommy and Daddy.”

Detective Casey White’s heart shatters when she finds Tabitha and Tommy Roth, just three and six years old, drifting alone on a raft off the coast of the Outer Banks. The children witnessed the murder of their own parents before escaping on a life raft. As Casey clutches them tight she promises to fight for justice.

Combing the coastline Casey finds an abandoned yacht, the broken bodies of a man and woman on board. Ransacking the boat for clues, when Casey sees Sara Roth’s police ID badge her blood runs cold. The children’s mother was a detective from another state. But who would want to tear apart this beautiful family?

Casey soon learns that Sara was tracking down a dangerous murderer who dressed their victims up like dolls. As Sara closed in on the killer, was she silenced forever?

When the body of a young woman perfectly arranged like a doll is found on a nearby beach—her lips and fingernails painted crimson, her hair perfectly combed—Casey is certain that whoever murdered the Roths is now stalking the Outer Banks.

With local women terrified and the whole community desperate for answers, Casey is on the trail of the most twisted killer of her career. But the closer she gets to the truth, the more danger little Tommy and Tabitha are in…

Fans of Lisa Jackson, Kendra Elliot and Melinda Leigh won’t be able to put down this pulse-pounding crime thriller that will have you racing through the pages late into the night.

Detective Casey White’s newest case touches her deeply. Two children were saved after being found on a small raft, and it soon becomes tragically clear that they lost their parents. Even more, Casey is fairly certain that they likely witnessed their parents death. Murdered, in fact. The children are of tender ages, just three and six. Casey is determined to discover who killed their parents. 

When a yacht is discovered with the bodies of a man and woman, Casey knows she has found the children’s parents. With a clue as to their identities, Casey leaves no stone unturned to find the killer. Shockingly. Another body is soon discovered on the beach near where the murdered couple was found, and Casey finds herself in a race against time before yet another murder takes place. 

While Casey and her partner Jericho are searching for the killer, this intriguing book also shows how their personal lives are changing. Casey had a very personal loss many years ago, and that story had an amazing result for Casey, thus prompting their decision to move away from the Outer Banks. With this personal edge and shocking twists, this latest book in a fantastic series was definitely a great read. 

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.


By day, B.R. Spangler pushes pixels, typing lines of code. When he's not developing software, or elbows deep in hardware, he is writing stories, plotting thrillers, or reading.

B.R. Spangler lives in Virginia with his wife and kids, as well as five cats, a parrot, a finch, a lizard.
