Reward-seeker Colter Shaw has discovered two men accused of a despicable hate crime ... his pursuit come to a conclusion that leaves him wondering if he is to blame for what happened. He finds himself involved with a cult representing itself as a grief support group. But is it truly it a community that consoles the bereaved? Or a dangerous cult with a growing body count? Some people will do whatever it takes to keep their deep dark secrets from seeing the light of day. Colter is going undercover ... if he finds what he seeks, will the price be too high? Although not one of the author's bests, it is full of twists and turns that kept me reading. There are multiple plots with multiple characters that I found to be confusing at times. Suspense begins on the very first page and maintains a high level throughout. Characters are deftly drawn. Although second in this series, it is easily read as a stand alone. However, I do recommend reading in order. Many thanks to the author / PENGUIN GROUP Putnam /G.P. Putnam's Sons / Netgalley for the digital copy of this crime fiction. Read and reviewed voluntarily, opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
