Round and round she goes, blonde pigtails flying, her high-pitched giggle catching on the wind. But as the ride slows to a stop, her seat is suddenly empty. Little Lucy is gone…
When seven-year-old Lucy Ross is snatched from the carousel in Denton city park, Detective Josie Quinn joins the frantic search. She’s the one who finds Lucy’s sparkly butterfly backpack abandoned by the ticket booth, a note with a devastating message stuffed inside: answer your phone, or your sweet little darling will die…
The next day, Lucy’s parents are filled with hope when they pick up a call which they think is from their babysitter – but instead it’s a chilling male voice on the line. Josie races to the babysitter’s small apartment only to find her lifeless body in a tangle of sheets on her bed.
Josie is faced with the most high-stakes case of her career as each new phone call from someone connected to the family ends with the shocking discovery of another body. This twisted killer wants revenge, and he won’t stop until the Ross family are in pieces…
Something is telling Josie that Lucy’s parents aren’t giving her the whole truth, but digging deeper into their lives will force her to confront a life-changing secret of her own. Does Josie have what it takes to crack this case? She has no choice if she’s going to bring Lucy home alive…
An absolutely unputdownable new crime thriller from an Amazon, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author. Readers who love Robert Dugoni, Angela Marsons and Rachel Caine will be hooked until the final, jaw-dropping page.
Thank you to Bookouture for letting me take part in this tour and my copy of this book via Netgalley. This is the 6th book in the series but they can all be read as standalones.
This book is set a few months after the last one. Josie is at the park with baby Harris when little Lucy goes missing. If there is one person you want on your case it is definitely Josie Quinn. Josie is as tough and badass as ever in this book. While she is going through a lot of personal stuff in this book she is as professional as ever and completely focused on the case.
This book was action-packed. It was very difficult to put down as I always needed to find out what was going to happen next. I guessed quite early on how the flashbacks related to the present day but Lisa still had a few tricks up her sleeve to reveal.
It sounds weird to say it was a pleasure to return to the world of Josie Quinn given the circumstances but Lisa always drags me right back in with such ease it’s like I never left. I can’t wait to see what happens next with Josie
