The girl's body is curled up like a shell and almost completely buried in sand. Only her fingertips can be seen, reaching helplessly up towards an escape she will never find…
Seventeen-year-old Shelby Mayfield sits alone on a bus to Fog Harbor, California. Aside from a few items of clothing, all she has with her is twenty-two dollars, the ragdoll she’s kept since kindergarten, and the devastating secret she’s been hiding.
How long will it be before her family realizes she’s gone?
Can anyone see the fresh bruise on her cheek beneath the makeup?
Perhaps she was a fool to believe the person she is meeting in this remote little town could help her…
When a girl’s body is found hidden in a barrel in a woodland cabin, the local police are at a loss. The film from an old camera found looped around her neck is their only lead, but Criminal Psychologist Olivia Rockwell’s blood turns to ice when she recognizes the ragdoll in one of the girl’s last photographs. She used to own one just like it, and it can only mean one thing: if she doesn’t dig deep into the mind of a deadly killer from her past—her own father—more innocent lives will be in danger…
A totally gripping and utterly addictive crime thriller for readers who love Lisa Regan, Kendra Elliot and Melinda Leigh. But be warned: you’ll be sleeping with the lights on after you’ve raced through the pages in one sitting!
Thank you to Bookouture for my copy of this book via Netgalley and for letting me take part in this tour. I loved the first book in this series and I knew I had to continue this series.
Will Decker is a complicated character. He is a good man but he is haunted by his past. He is starting to settle in to the small town of Fog Harbor. His partner JB has is back while ribbing him daily. I love their relationship. It’s full of banter but you know at the end of the day they would do anything for each other
Olivia Rockwell worked with Decker and JB in the first book. Olivia has a lot of walls up and she is slowly bringing them down and letting Will in. It’s good to see her opening up. I can’t wait to see more of this in future books.
You know the problem with a body that’s decades old? Everyone has moved, the evidence is degraded and peoples memories are fuzzy. Obviously, Will and JB do not let that hold them back. This case is full of action, suspicious characters and hidden motives. It was a thrilling ride.
I liked the side story into Olivia’s dad. This follows on from the first book and is a good background story to keep those who read the whole series coming back. There’s more going on with this and I want to know all about it!
I liked the case files and the scripts for the morning show. Little quirky things like this make me smile.
