From the heart-stopping opening to the exciting conclusion, this book it's hard to put down. The characters are sympathetic. Mia, a recent widow, is trying to raise her two children and hold on to her job in the District Attorney's office – not an easy task. Charlie is the kind of police officer you love. He doesn't mind taking chances, and he's there when you need him. After Colleen's death, Mia is tapped as the lead for the murder investigation, and Charlie is the detective assigned -- an excellent combination for a contentious partnership.
If you want a mystery that keeps you guessing right to the end, this is a winner. Although the search is on from the first pages for the killer, it comes as a surprise at the end. However, there are enough clues that the solution is not out of the blue. A well done mystery.
I reviewed this book for the Thomas Nelson Booksneeze Program.
