Summary

In the next book in the Wall Street Journal bestselling Mercy Kilpatrick series, there are no such things as little secrets....

Raised by preppers, survivalist and FBI agent Mercy Kilpatrick has a deep-rooted need for a safe place. Her getaway in the Cascade Foothills is her secret. But when skeletal remains are unearthed - those of a murdered man linked to a notorious heist - Mercy realizes she isn’t the only one with something to hide.

Thirty years ago, an armored-car robbery turned deadly. The mastermind was captured. Four conspirators vanished with a fortune. One of them, it appears, never made it out of the woods alive. For Mercy and her fiancé, Police Chief Truman Daly, their investigation opens old wounds in Eagle’s Nest that cut deeper than they imagined. Especially when a reckless tabloid reporter draws fresh blood. It’s clear to Mercy that somebody in this close-knit community is not who they seem to be.

Some are still shattered by the heist. Some still have reason to be afraid. But which one will kill again and again to hide three decades of secrets? To land this case, it’s up to Mercy to unmask a familiar stranger before someone else dies.

5 Stars and FREE with Kindle Unlimited!

Book #5 in the Mercy Kilpatrick is a good solid addition to this series. It is a good stand alone but I would suggest at least listening/reading book #1 first for an understanding of the area culture first.
The publisher's summary gives a good overview of a 30 year old robbery. It is brought once again into the public interest when the skeletal remains of one of the participants in the robbery is found. The one person involved who went to prison gives Mercy a menacing warning and two women in town are victims of vandalism. Then someone is murdered...
This book is as expected from Kendra Elliot. Great plot, fast paced mystery with minimal romance and maximum suspense!
Teri Schnaubelt does an excellent job narrating.
This book is FREE to borrow with the kindle unlimited edition!!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Keep them coming Kendra!

I love this series, every book keeps you wanting more, keeps you reading (listening) until the very end. I’m so happy that another book is coming out this year. For those of you that love crime novels with a hint of romance, this series is for you!

If I had an critique, it’s that allllll of these events in these books happening in less than a year? I don’t think so.

Another hit for Kendra Elliot

I really like the Mercy Kilpatrick series but I think this is my favorite so far! Great story, some twists and wonderful character building.

Another great Mercy story

Elliot has given us a great setting in the Mercy books. Lots of family and people in the small town we’ve come to know in basically 8 months! A lot has happened to Mercy Kirkpatrick in that time. Keep them coming Elliot. I’ll keep reading (or listening).

Another great Mercy story

I enjoy the continual character development in the Mercy Kilpatrick series. Great mystery as well as building upon the characters from book to book. I have enjoyed all of Kendra Elliott's series of mysteries based in Oregon.

Great read

I loved it. As usual, Brown has written a beautiful story that twists and turns while holding the reader with minute descriptions.
