My 4th book this year)
Angela Collins has just admitted to killing her husband, but then her son Conner also gives a statement saying he killed his father. Now the detectives need to find out who is telling the truth or if either of them are telling the truth. As evidence is tampered with and so called witness statements not coinciding, the police have a difficult time in solving this case.
40 years ago a teenage girl, Kimi, died. It was ruled as suicide, then the case was closed. A young, new detective, Buzz, seemed to have a hard time believing this and dug deeper into the matter. With potential evidence he went to his superiors meeting nothing but chastisement for trying to make more work for the force on a case that was already solved.
Buzz decided to keep investigating in his own time. Even at his death he hadn’t found any answers. His daughter, Jenny, found the file and decided to continue what her father started. Many people believe Kimi did not commit suicide. People speculate, people have formed their own opinions. With modern technology being so much more advanced, the evidence is checked over again. There is evidence of a more sinister story. Kimi’s death was likely to be more than it seemed. But how do the police find enough evidence to uncover the whole truth to the story?
Another great book to the Tracy Crosswhite Series. The third book and I am still thrilled at the way Robert Dugoni takes us through the cases and keeps the reader hanging on and needing to find out more. He excels at delivering twists and turns to move the story forward.
I absolutely loved the way Kimi’s story unfolded. The twist was unexpected and was not overly dramatic, which is what I admire about this author. He doesn’t feel the need to make everything over the top. Great flow to the story and a very interesting plot.
The focus of this book was more on the case from 40 years ago. The current case of Angela Collins was rather neglected therefore maybe it wasn’t necessary to have this case in the story at all. Otherwise I would highly recommend this book, this series and previous books by this author. I am very excited to pick up the next book of the series.
