Summary

An Amazon Charts bestseller.

Her own past could be a reporter’s biggest story in this twisting thriller about murder and family secrets by the New York Times bestselling author T.R. Ragan.

Plagued by traumatic childhood memories, crime reporter Sawyer Brooks still struggles to gain control of her rage, her paranoia, and her life. Now, after finally getting promoted at work, she is forced to return home and face her past.

River Rock is where she’d been abandoned by her two older sisters to suffer alone, and in silence, the unspeakable abuses of her family. It’s also where Sawyer’s best friend disappeared and two teenage girls were murdered. Three cold cases dead and buried with the rest of the town’s secrets.

When another girl is slain in a familiar grisly fashion, Sawyer is determined to put an end to the crimes. Pulled back into the horrors of her family history, Sawyer must reconcile with her estranged sisters, who both have shattering memories of their own. As Sawyer’s investigation leads to River Rock’s darkest corners, what will prove more dangerous - what she knows of the past or what she has yet to discover?

Secrets and Lies

This book is filled with so many secrets and lies with most all within one family. As the secrets are revealed 3 sisters each believing awful things about each other realise the main crux of the problems lie closer to home. With all this being said throw in murders and vigilantes then the mind boggles. A real twisted debacle but a real page turner. I don’t want to give anything away but definitely worth a listen

Count on TR Ragan for consistently solid mysteries

If you’re a fan of T R Ragan then you’re familiar with her formula for writing a story.
1. There is a common atrocious issue.
2. The issue is not being dealt with properly by society or law enforcement.
3. A group of wronged individuals set an agreeable goal to take care of the problem.
4. Everyone has a nickname.
There is always a good story with lots of tension. Often there are multiple plots (as in this book), there are also two locations. The characters are fleshed out and although some have been brutalized they never appear as victims. Only slightly broken.
Jennica Damon does an excellent job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Intriguing

Good book. Keeps you intrigued and hanging on. I just wished there were not so many F bombs used in it. i don't see how that adds anything to the book.

Wow!

Like many other reviews note, this book is definitely a trigger for someone who’s been sexually assaulted, but I actually enjoyed it. Honestly, being someone who’s experiences sexual assault, I can appreciate stories of revenge, and this was a great one.

Not for me..

I've read 8 or 9 of Ms. Ragan's books and I thought they were fabulous, not just the story but Kate Rudd narrating. I didn't like this book at all. I didn't like the constant present-to-past, past-to-present without warning. And I didn't like Sawyer, or the Crew.

I don't know if there was any sex but, according to my iPad, the F-bomb was used 37 times.

As to the narration: There's nothing worse than a female narrator who has all the men sounding like a girl. Jeez, it's 2020, time to learn how to narrate. Shoulda' got Kate Rudd!

Intense

Intense, raw, painful and shocking story, a roller coaster with twists and turns. Be ready to cry and fight until the truth is reveal . I definitely recommend it.

Disappointed

Have always enjoyed books but this author, this first book in this series just failed to capture my attention. If this was supposed to be about a news reporter well it barely occurs in this book, whenever I had not listened for a day or so I had to refer to the details as a reminder of the story. Not worth the time, only continued as I'd hope it would improve, no such luck.

Unlikeable people and plot

I tried to drag myself through this book because I've liked some of the books by Ragan. But I didn't like any of the unlikeable people in the book. The plot was a bit unbelievable. It's a thriller but I don't care who did the crimes. I just can't get through this and I'm halfway through. Returning.
