Thirteen months ago, former NYPD detective Shana Merchant barely survived being abducted by a serial killer. Now hoping to leave grisly murder cases behind, she's taken a job in her fiancé's sleepy hometown in the Thousand Islands region of Upstate New York.
But as a nor'easter bears down on her new territory, Shana and fellow investigator Tim Wellington receive a call about a man missing on a private island. Shana and Tim travel to the isolated island owned by the wealthy Sinclair family to question the witnesses. They arrive to find blood on the scene and a house full of Sinclair family and friends on edge.
While Tim guesses they're dealing with a runaway case, Shana is convinced that they have a murder on their hands. As the gale intensifies outside, she starts conducting interviews and discovers the Sinclairs and their guests are crawling with dark and dangerous secrets.
Trapped on the island by the raging storm with only Tim whose reliability is thrown into question, the increasingly restless suspects, and her own trauma-fueled flashbacks for company, Shana will have to trust the one person her abduction destroyed her faith in—herself. But time is ticking down, because if Shana's right, a killer is in their midst and as the pressure mounts, so do the odds that they'll strike again.
Sounds intriguing! Will keep this book in mind for my future read. Thanks, Kay!ReplyDelete
Do that, Melody. Might be a good one for you.Delete
Glad you found a good one to read! :)ReplyDelete
Yes, it has been a struggle.Delete
Oooh, sounds like a good one! I hadn't heard of this one before, but now I'm definitely going to check it out. Isolation always ups the tension, especially in a mystery/thriller.ReplyDelete
I always like a 'locked room' type mystery.Delete
A raging storm and lots of secrets--sounds like the kind of suspense that could keep me engaged!ReplyDelete
Yes, I like stories that have that 'locked room' aspect.Delete
I have this sitting on my shelf right now and thought it looked fantastic when I got it in the mail. I definitely need to bump it up the list as I could definitely use a book that pulls me in right about now. Hope you continue to love it!ReplyDelete
I'll look forward to hearing what you think about it, Katherine. Kind of has an Agatha Christie vibe.Delete
Sounds like a good good. I love discovering new mystery writes.ReplyDelete
I do too. I'm doing pretty well with this one, just not reading terribly fast right now.Delete
