In the remote forests of Stillwater, Minnesota, you can scream for days and no one will hear you. So when the bodies of two fifteen-year-old girls are discovered frozen in the snow, Special Agent Nikki Hunt is sure the killer is local: someone knew where to hide them and thought they’d never be found.
Home for the first time in twenty years, Nikki sees that the whole town had been frantically searching for missing best friends Madison and Kaylee, and when she finds out who Madison’s step-father is, she becomes desperate to lead the case. John was once the person she trusted most in the world, who stood by her when she was just sixteen and her parents were murdered. Who supported her when she identified their killer, Mark Todd.
But when Nikki arrives at the Sheriff’s office, she’s confronted by protesters eager to see Mark freed. With new evidence that could clear his name, Mark has appealed his conviction and his brother Rory begs Nikki to take a look at what they’ve found.
Nikki knows she must focus on the killer at large, but Rory makes her wonder if she put her trust in the right people all those years ago. Are Madison and Kaylee’s deaths connected to her parents’ murders? And can she face up to her past before another life is taken?
I’m going to start this review by saying I literally couldn’t put this down when I first started reading, I kept me hooked on the story till the very end. I have to say this is my first book by this author and it certainly won’t be the last.
The authors writing style really caught my attention and kept me on the edge of my seat, I never had a clue on who the killer was. I really enjoyed how she described the characters and found her writing style easy to follow.
The girls in the show it’s told from FBI Agent Nikki Hunt’s pov, with her own tragic past I really enjoyed her character. I also enjoyed the very subtle romance in this, the author kept me guessing right till the very end and now I need the next book in the series.
I have to say again I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait for the next in the series to see what happens next, I’ve only just started reading thrillers/crime stories and am so happy I was approved for this on netgalley.
I received this book in exchange for an honest my review is based on my own thoughts and opinions and I want to thank netgalley, the publisher and author for allowing me to read this.
