Lisa Grant, having recently relocated to a small town to escape the fast paced nature of her homicide detective job in Chicago, discovers she has not really left the stress of her previous position when human remains are found in a field not long after she begins her new role. Determined to solve the case, she enlists the help of county detective Mac McGregor, an ex-Navy SEAL who is equally anxious to put the killer behind bars. But as they uncover more information about the victim, dangerous events begin to happen around them. Convinced these are more than mere coincidences, Lisa and Mac attempt to stay ahead of the murderer before it is too late.
Once again, Irene Hannon delivers an action-filled and thrilling contemporary novel. I enjoyed the interesting perspective of the murderer, introduced to readers in the very first chapter. This provided a unique plotline that made the story more exciting. The characters are very easy to like and each have curious backgrounds that are not fully revealed until further into the book. The story has a great amount of complexity that only adds to the mystery and suspense. The romance is well written, interwoven among the professional working relationship. The events and clues lead to an intense climax, creating a truly enjoyable novel. Recommended to lovers of contemporary suspense!
