Casey Cox’s DNA is all over the crime scene. There’s no use talking to police; they’ve failed her abysmally before. She has to flee before she’s arrested . . . or worse. The truth doesn’t matter anymore.
But what is the truth? That’s the question haunting Dylan Roberts, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. PTSD has marked him damaged goods, but bringing Casey back can redeem him. Though the crime scene seems to tell the whole story, details of the murder aren’t adding up.
Casey Cox doesn’t fit the profile of a killer. But are Dylan’s skewed perceptions keeping him from being objective? If she isn’t guilty, why did she run?
Unraveling her past and the evidence that condemns her will take more time than he has, but as Dylan’s damaged soul intersects with hers, he is faced with two choices: the girl who occupies his every thought is a psychopathic killer . . . or a selfless hero. And the truth could be the most deadly weapon yet.
Sometimes it is hard to get excited about a book. There are so many books out there with similar plots and characters and endings that it is easy to see what is going to happen. Fortunately, this is not one of those books. This book broke the book slump I was in and reignited my passion for reading! I can’t remember the last time I sped through a book because I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen at the end. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.
The beginning of this book is so clever. Casey tells the readers that she is at the crime scene and we see her planning her escape. Readers believe she might have committed the crime, but then there is so much more to come.
If you are looking for an awesome book to keep you reading, this is a great one! I just hope Blackstock comes out with the next one very quickly!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Fiction Guild in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
