Genre: Crime

Samantha Cash is the FBI’s secret weapon. Her methods are invisible, and she never stops until the case is closed. When missing teens begin turning up dead in a small Southern town, Samantha is assigned to help local chief Connor Wolfe find the killer. And he has two problems with that. There’s her faith–in God and herself. And then there’s the fact that she looks exactly like his late wife.

As they get close to an answer, the case becomes personal. The killer seems to be taking an interest in Connor’s 16-year-old daughter, who thinks her dad is getting way too protective. Can’t a girl just have some fun?

Six teenage girls have gone missing. Three have been found dead and all have been recently pregnant. There doesn’t seem to be any connection between the girls and all the missing teenagers look different. In fact, the police have very little clues to help move this case forward.

Connor is the leading detective on the case. He is desperate to catch the killer but it’s affecting his already non-existent relationship with his 16 year old daughter Jenna.

However, a small clue is found on one of the murdered teenage girls so the police call in the FBI’s computer expert, Samantha Cash. Samantha has a few issues she is dealing with herself – blaming herself for her sisters horrific ordeal several years ago.

As Connor and Samantha race against time to find the killer, he has a new victim in his sights… Connor’s daughter Jenna.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was full of suspense and twists which kept me wanting to find out what happens next.

Many of the reviews I have read for this book thought that the Christianity aspect was over the top. I’m not overally religious but I felt it gave another dimension to the story.

I’m really interested to see what happens in the next book and how the characters and their relationships grow.

Rating: 5/5
