Mark and Billy Jo are back in a new crossover series when a maze of hidden clues turns the truth upside down in this riveting romantic crime thriller that will keep you guessing from start to finish from NY Times & USA Today bestselling author Lorhainne Eckhart.

"Throw in some shady characters, hidden secrets, questionable legal decisions, and small town politics and you have an amazing whodunit. This book is well written and keeps you guessing." Reading Susan

While cleaning out closed cases, Mark discovers a file on a missing toddler. After reading the two pages within, he realizes evidence is missing. The only interviews, by the detective who previously had Mark’s job, was conducted with a bitter ex-wife and a former business partner, both of whom pointed at the father.

It appears to have been an open and shut case. Although no body was found, the father was charged and convicted, and the case was closed.

But, Mark and Billy Jo soon discover  a family of secrets, a volatile marriage, and a forbidden relationship—and the mystery of the missing girl, whose body has never been found, becomes a case that should never have been closed. “Grab your copy now by clicking the BUY now with 1-Click button at the top of this page!”

We are back in the small island off the NW coast where secrets are kept and where Detective Mark Friessen has ended after his honesty and the truth ended his career on the mainland. Also where he and social worker Billy Jo McCabe have now developed a friendship neither expected. When a closed case is brought to his attention, it’s evident it has more holes than a Swiss cheese. The investigation leads to more questions than answers . Answers and digging that could cost him his job. Is the former detective involved and if so why? What about the Chief of Police that wants Mark to stop the investigation? But with no body, no real evidence and a stubbornness to find justice, Mark is once again in hot water. This talented author gives us a story that will keep you guessing, and hoping that Mark and Bill Jo can figure out why things were hidden and what really happened. Looking forward to more stories about this duo whose friendship continues to develop. I was entrusted a copy of this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

The Cold Case is the third book in the Billy Jo McCabe Mystery series and is an engaging read. Mark enlists Billy Jo's help when he re-opens the closed case of a missing girl. This book has terrific characters, secrets in a small town, suspense, and intrigue. I am looking forward to reading more books in this series. I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

This is the 3rd book I've read written by Lorhainne Eckhart; I can’t wait to read more of her books. This is the third book in the Billy Jo McCabe Mystery Series; Mark is a detective who is cleaning out old closed cases when he comes across a file about a missing toddler; the case was closed when evidence disappeared. Her father was convicted; they never found her body but the old women they called Crazy Carla claims she saw everything that happened but no one believed her. Mark decides to investigate it further because nothing adds up. I received a free copy of this book via booksprout and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.
