Casey Cox’s DNA is all over the crime scene. There’s no use talking to police; they have failed her abysmally before. She has to flee before she’s arrested . . . or worse. The truth doesn’t matter anymore.
But what is the truth? That’s the question haunting Dylan Roberts, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. PTSD has marked him damaged goods, but bringing Casey back can redeem him. Though the crime scene seems to tell the whole story, details of the murder aren’t adding up. Casey Cox doesn’t fit the profile of a killer. But are Dylan’s skewed perceptions keeping him from being objective? If she isn’t guilty, why did she run?
Unraveling her past and the evidence that condemns her will take more time than he has, but as Dylan’s damaged soul intersects with hers, he is faced with two choices. The girl who occupies his every thought is a psychopathic killer . . . or a selfless hero. And the truth could be the most deadly weapon yet.
My opinion: As always I thoroughly enjoyed this book by Ms. Blackstock, I have to say overall it wasn't quite up to par with some of her previous works though. It was fast paced and I read it very quickly but the mystery was pretty predictable and there wasn't as much of a build up. Still the story line was solid and the characters were likable which made it for an interesting read. Oh, and the villains were awful, the side mystery about the young girls abduction was sad.:( I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
