Summary

The beautiful young woman is perfectly still, curled up in the trunk of the car, her long dark hair hiding her face. Her cotton blouse has ridden up a little, revealing two small dots an inch apart on her back. Just like the others. 

Guilt has kept FBI Agent Tori Hunter away from her home in Manchester Bay, Minnesota for 20 years, ever since her twin sister disappeared on the Fourth of July, when the girls should have been together. But when she receives an anonymous newspaper clipping about another missing girl, Genevieve, Tori is dragged back to the past. Just like Tori’s sister, Genevieve vanished without a trace, her empty car abandoned on a lonely lakeside road as Independence Day fireworks lit up the sky overhead. 

Returning to Minnesota lake country, Tori finds Genevieve’s distraught parents desperate for answers. How could their beautiful, popular daughter be snatched so near her own home? Under pressure to make an arrest, the police have no time for Tori’s theories. Besides, they already have a suspect for Genevieve’s abductor: A local man seen flirting with her the night she disappeared. 

But then the suspect is found dead in his isolated cabin, days before another girl’s body is discovered bound and strangled in the trunk of her car, two strange dots on her back. The bloodstains surrounding her body belong to the one man Tori thought she could trust. Reeling, Tori knows the closer she gets to the truth, the more her own life is at risk. But can she catch this killer before it’s too late for Genevieve? 

An absolutely addictive mystery thriller. Perfect for fans of Kendra Elliot, Robert Dugoni and Tess Gerritsen.

gripping

my favourite thrillers are ones I'm not sure who it is until the end and this was it, I didn't always suspect who the author wanted me to but I didnt clock it straight away like some. I also like the romance aspect it didnt overpower the mystery making the investigation a side story and the characters didnt have instalove either, it felt natural and relatable.

What a rollercoaster

I really enjoyed the story, my first by this author. The characters were all believable, the plot was mostly plausible, and if our heroine was more Marvel Comics than real life, it didn’t spoil my enjoyment. I look forward to more.

Repeated

This audiobook has been rerecorded with a female narrator. As I listened to the book I was certain I'd heard the story before. Well I had, it was originally recorded with Johnny Peppers as the narrator. I already have the book in my library but I can't find it in the purchases. Same title - Same author but I now have paid for 2 copies of the same book. Going to see if I can get a refund but wish audible would take into account that I already had the book, difference being the narrator. Anyway - if you go to purchase this book make sure you haven't already - wish i had. Other than that it's an ok story kept me interested but nothing too suspenseful.

too predictable

if the FBI was that slow in real life to see a pattern, no case would be solved.

there is a good story in here somewhere

I don't think that there are any spoilers here just some issues with character development/non-development. So, maybe a lot of people really liked this. However, given the premise that our heroine is a top FBI agent who can call her own shots and pick and choose whether her boss likes it or not she is incredibly incompetent. As ALL the small town cops and prosecutors keep pointing out. Our hero is supposed to have worked a terrorism task force yet knows absolutely nothing about explosives, not even if they are traceable. The way the heroine acts and the way she is treated is sexist trope. Tired. Which is too bad, because there is some decent writing and plot here. I'd suggest that the author review telling us how smart and awesome people are and them having them act incompetent and allow others to treat them like incompetent nincompoops.

Good story but objectified women A LOT

The story line is great. It had me guessing for quite a while. I enjoyed the romance mixed with the mystery. My problem was how the main female character was always described in physical ways about how great her “body” is. As a woman it left me feeling objectified as I related to her, like women are pretty things to look at. Just left a weird taste in my mouth and feeling degraded.

Suspenseful twists and turns from start to finish!

It was a suspenseful thriller with ongoing plot development. Just when I thought I knew who the killer was, it took a hard right and I found myself sleuthing along with the detectives! Well done! Can’t wait did the next one!

Good listen

Great book! Although it is frustrating that the nickname for Alexandria was mispronounced in the final chapter. It is spelled Alex but it is pronounced “Alec.” There were a couple other mistakes in pronunciation throughout.

Corny but fun

This book is overall, pretty good. Definitely some corny parts, and definitely some parts that drag on longer than needed.

Get an Editor.

This book had a good mystery, and it was my desire to find out "who done it" that kept me listening. However, the author is very, very wordy and one can't help but wonder where the editor was on this manuscript. Some good editing could have shaved 3 hours off the recording time and made the story much tighter. The narrator didn't help. She had a tendency to make everyone sound dim witted. But like I said the mystery was a good one with lots of twists...though it was so slow, they were more like elongated curves.
