Casey Cox is still on the run, fleeing prosecution for a murder she didn’t commit. Dylan Roberts—her most relentless pursuer—is still on her trail, but his secret emails insist he knows the truth and wants to help her. He’s let her escape before when he had her in his grasp, but trust doesn’t come easily.
As Casey works to collect evidence about the real murderers, she stumbles on another unbearable injustice: an abused child and a suicidal man who’s also been falsely accused. Casey risks her own safety to right this wrong and protect the little girl from her tormenters. But doing so is risky and may result in her capture—and if she’s captured, she has no doubt she’ll be murdered before she ever steps foot in a jail cell.
I was super excited to read this book because I had read the first one in the series, If I Run, and was looking forward to reading what happened next. Unfortunately, it had been a long while since I had read the first book, so it took me a little bit of time to remember all the details of Casey and Dylan as I began reading this book. As I continued reading, it all came back to me and I greatly enjoyed the book. I had a very similar feeling of disappointment at the end of this book when I discovered that the next installment of this series would not be published until 2018. I can’t believe I have to wait that long!
This book was well worth the wait and was even better than the first one in the series. I appreciate Casey’s knack for evading the law and Dylan’s detective skills. I think it is beneficial the way that Blackstock draws attention to the struggle of many veterans with PTSD and disabilities that resulted from their service.
I like the way that Blackstock pulls in a substory underneath Casey’s search for justice for her friend. It is very creative the way that the substory intertwines and impacts the main plotline. Very cleverly written, indeed.
If you like suspense/mystery books, you will enjoy this one. The only thing you will want to consider is reading the first book in the series before reading this one. It will make a lot more sense if you do.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
