BOOK DESCRIPTION
OMG!!...I was simply blown away by this… I couldn't look away from my kindle even when I wanted to. The story took me by my throat making me gasp every few chapters…Wow!!’ Shalini’s Books and Reviews⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Footprints were scattered about like fallen leaves. She looked down into the ravine, and once more her lungs filled with fear. A body, blackened and motionless lay splayed out in the bushes.

When Ruth Turner walks into the Sheriff’s office in Jefferson County’s Port Townsend claiming her sister Ida Watson has been missing for over a month, Detective Megan Carpenter’s instincts tell her that she needs to do more than just file a report.

Racing over to Ida’s secluded farmhouse in the hills above Snow Creek, Megan finds Ida’s teenage children alone and frightened. She can’t help but notice there’s no TV. No video games. Nothing of the outside world. Something about the Watson family doesn’t add up.

Then the body of a woman is discovered in an abandoned pickup truck close to the Watsons’ home and Megan’s convinced the cases are connected.

If she has any chance of catching the killer, Megan must first unravel the secrets of the isolated Snow Creek community.

But Megan has dark secrets of her own too. Hidden in the back of her closet is a box of tapes containing every single recording of her therapy sessions over thirteen years ago. Can she finally confront the past she’s spent years trying to block out? And will reliving her own painful story help her solve the complex case before another innocent life is lost?

From the Number One New York Times and Amazon Charts bestselling author, comes an absolutely heart-stopping and completely unputdownable crime series, introducing Detective Megan Carpenter.

MY REVIEW

This book lives up to its hype. There are so many layers and depth wrapped in an apparent mundane reality that you are knocked out of kilter and ask yourself how is this possible but knowing that it is.

Isolation from society both physically and mentally is the basis of the story. The area around Snow Creek is wilderness and so attractive to people who wish to isolate themselves from society, some to a dangerous extent. Incidents are ignored and covered up to maintain the isolation.

Hiding a body to keep your privacy might not occur to most of us but this is where this story starts. The accidental discovery of the burnt out wreck brings detective Megan Carpenter on the track.

The investigation is at first straightforward but soon spirals outward. Nothing is as it seems. But Megan follows every track to discover the truth. The whole book is a twist so the ending is another surprise.

Detective Megan also starts to unravel her secret past with many parallels to the current case. We only go so far with this and at the end we are left to look forward to the next book.
