About The Book:
From the USA Today bestselling author of White Out comes a story of two heroines with shattered pasts and a town with blood on its hands.
When a North Dakota couple is shot down in their home in cold blood, the sleepy town of Hagen wakes with a jolt. After all, it’s usually such a peaceful place. But Detective Kylie Milliard knows better.
Despite not handling a homicide investigation in years, Kylie is on the case. A drop of blood found at the scene at first blush promises to be her best evidence. But it ultimately only proves that someone else witnessed the murder—and the results are shocking: the DNA reveals a familial match to a crime involving local nurse Lily Baker from over a decade ago. This unveiling stirs new nightmares for Lily as she’s forced to reckon with the most traumatic time in her life.
Haunted by their pasts and hunting the killer, Kylie and Lily uncover hellish secrets and impossible truths, finding answers that put both their lives in jeopardy.
A local couple has been murdered in their home and their baby is missing. A spot of blood at the crime scene is found related to another case. It is a match to past victim. Kylie is now determined to discover the truth about both cases.
This story had me enthralled from the start! Talk about intense. I fell for the characters, especially Hannah.
Hannah is a young teenager in trouble. She is doing drugs and she just witnessed a double murder. And now the killer is after her. Kylie is the local cop investigating these double murders. The blood droplet at the crime scene leads to Lily, a local nurse. What all three of these ladies have in common…you will have to read the story to find out. And trust me…you will be glad you did!
I am definitely going to pick up the first book in this series. Heck, I am adding all of this author’s book to my tbr list.
Need a fast paced thriller that just won’t quit…THIS IS IT!
I received this novel from the author for a honest review.
