Josie treads gently, careful not to disturb the pile of perfect white bones laid out in the grass by her feet. Her voice is little more than a whisper.
“No! Not my sister…”
Detective Josie Quinn hasn’t heard from her sister since Trinity stormed out of the house in the heat of an argument three weeks ago. So, when human remains are found at the remote hunting cabin where Trinity was last seen, Josie can only assume the worst.
Gathering her team, Josie feels a surge of relief when the dental records match a different body – that of a missing single mother from a neighboring town. But now Josie’s is not the only broken family desperate for answers.
Dusting the crime scene for prints, a name smudged into the side of a nearby car is the first in a trail of clues Trinity left for Josie. In need of a big story to save her journalism career, it seems Josie’s sister was attempting to make contact with a dangerous serial killer known for creating sculptures with his victim’s bones. And Trinity won’t stop until she’s found him, even if it means becoming his next masterpiece…
Josie is certain there’s a critical clue in the ivory hair comb delivered to Trinity just days before she went missing. But as more bones surface, each set more likely to be Trinity’s than the last, time is running out to find her alive. Can Josie’s team trust her instincts in a case that is so deeply personal? Can she find her sister without putting other innocent lives in danger?
Thank you to Bookouture for letting me take part in this tour and for my copy of this book via Netgalley. I am a HUGE Josie Quinn fan and I couldn’t wait to get sucked back into her world. This is the 8th book but they can all be read as stand-alones.
Josie Quinn has one hell of a back story and it has made her the person she is. Josie has grit, she has determination and she has heart. Not only is this a high profile case this is personal. As always Josie manages to compartmentalise to get the job done.
As always Lisa had me hooked from very early on. Her writing is gripping, addictive and well thought out. Not only do we have a case that will keep you on the edge we also get to learn a lot more about Trinity and her childhood. Josie thinks that Trinity had the perfect childhood but in this book, we find out the truth.
There is a very sweet moment between Josie and Trinity which really made my heart sing. This was another fantastic book to a fantastic series and I honestly cannot wait for the next one.
