About the Book:

Former Army Night Stalker Rick Jordan usually has his camp for foster children to himself during the winter months. But someone has visited recently--leaving a trail of blood. One of the two clues left behind tips Rick off to the identity of his visitor, who soon turns up dead. The police deem it an accident, but Rick isn't convinced. With the help of private investigator Heather Shields, he sets out to decipher the remaining clue. Except someone doesn't want them to succeed--and will stop at nothing to keep them from finding the truth. 

With her trademark psychological suspense ratcheting up the tension on every page, bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon takes you on a search for a cold-blooded killer with an ambitious goal and deadly intent.

My Rating & Thoughts:    🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟    (4 stars)   

This is the third book in Irene Hannon’s Code of Honor series and features Rick, the last remaining single member of the treehouse gang. Rick discovers blood on his property along with piece of evidence that makes him think someone came to him for help and got into trouble before connecting him. He reaches out to the Phoenix team to locate his friend after a recommendation from another friend. Heather is assigned to his case and even though there is an instant attraction between them, they get off to a rocky start. However, over the course of the investigation they learn to work together and are able to successfully solve the mystery and build a lasting relationship. 

There were quite a few characters and layers to this story that I really had to pay attention to try to figure out how everything fit together. When a few characters were first introduced I was so confused on how they tied into the story. While I knew that it would eventually become obvious how these characters fit, it was still quite before I understood. Overall the story was suspenseful and filled with a touch of romance.
