WOW!!! WHAT AN ABSOLUTELY GRIPPING PAGE TURNER WITH AN EXPLOSIVE ENDING!!… filled with murder, secrets, lies, mystery, tension, suspense and red herrings galore. I was completely hooked and could not put it down even at 3am!!!Bookworm86, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

When the remains of a young woman are discovered on the edge of Saranac Lake in upstate New York, local law enforcement immediately call Detective Harlow Durant. When she arrives at the scene, she instantly knows this case will get under her skin. Lying just beyond the picturesque lake popular with families are the remains of a victim who has been burned. With little evidence remaining, Harlow begins scouring missing persons reports.

The victim is identified as twenty-six-year-old Ellie Gordon—a fun-loving young woman who worked in the bookstore and enjoyed going out with friends. When her mother comes to ID the body, she reports her daughter’s gold crucifix missing and the hunt begins to locate it and any potential DNA evidence. But as Harlow starts to piece Ellie’s last movements together, another body is found, killed in exactly the same way.

Witness statements identify a local man who was obsessed with both victims and when Harlow sees video evidence of him pawning the gold necklace, she thinks she has her man. But when he too winds up dead, Harlow has to start over. The only other link to the women is Gavin Croswell, one of the most powerful men in the town. But with a whole host of alibis, pinning the murders on him is almost impossible.

Soon the case becomes personal when Harlow’s car is violently run off the road. Someone wants to warn her off and they will use anything they can to threaten her, even if it means exposing her twisted past. With time running out to find the killer, can Harlow face her darkest secret before another woman loses her life?

An addictive serial killer thriller perfect for fans of Melinda Leigh, Kendra Elliot and Robert Dugoni.
