Talk about amazing suspense stories by author and you simply must come up with Mary Burton!  I have read numerous books by Ms. Burton and she plays all her cards close to her chest in trying to figure out who the villain truly is!   Once again, the twist of “who” the murderer was and the “why” of it was a closely guarded secret right up to the very end.

Fourteen years earlier, Kaitlin Roe was the lone witness to her cousin Gina’s abduction.  She couldn’t get the memories out of her head and the guilt she felt over leaving her screaming  so Kaitlin did what she’d always done – run away.  Kaitlin was a troubled teen and used drugs and alcohol to drown out the memories which really never left her.  Now she is ready to do something – anything  – to solve the mystery of who killed her cousin.

However the ‘bad reputation” she had as a teen doesn’t make people very agreeable to talk to her.  When the people she has started to talk to somehow end up murdered, it becomes even harder to to get people to open up and it seems her questions seem to have drawn the murderer out of retirement and put a target on Kaitlin’s back.  

Even as Detective John Adler is drawn into the cold case, he realizes that finding the murderer is a priority, but keeping Kaitlin save seems even more of a priority.

Fast action – lots of red herrings and a great twist ending.  Just the way I like them!
