Racing to the murder scene of married couple Dan and Heidi Newman in an isolated cabin, Agent Tori Hunter finds their seventeen-year-old daughter Cara hiding in the woods, shaking with fear. Tori’s blood turns to ice as she realises that her father worked a crime scene just like this before he died. Is there a copycat killer at large? And are they sending a message to Tori?
With no forensics at the scene, Tori interviews the killer her father put behind bars years ago. Cold, remorseless, and in the prison hospital with just days to live, the only clue he gives Tori is a whisper: “Your father. He cheated.”
To get justice for the Newmans—and protect their daughter—Tori must confront painful secrets in her father’s past. Could her brave, honest Dad have planted evidence? As all happy memories of her father shatter, the unthinkable happens: another couple is found murdered, tied up together, and Cara Newman goes missing.
Knowing someone close to both cases is watching her every move, Tori can’t even trust her team… with time running out, does she have any hope of stopping this vicious killer before more innocent lives are lost? And can she find Cara alive?
An absolutely addictive and mind-blowing crime thriller that will have you glued to the pages through each and every twist, until the final shocking conclusion. Fans of Kendra Elliot, Robert Dugoni and Lisa Jackson won’t be able to put this down.
