About the Book:

The FBI has a secret weapon. But now the secret's out.

When missing teens begin turning up dead in a small Southern town, the FBI sends in Special Agent Samantha Cash to help crack the case. Her methods are invisible, and she never quits until the case is closed.

Homicide detective Connor Wolfe has his hands full. His relationship with his headstrong daughter is in a tailspin, and the string of unsolved murders has the town demanding answers. Connor is running out of ideas--and time.

Samantha joins Connor in a race against the clock to save the next victim. And the killer starts to get personal.


My Rating & Thoughts:    

This story deals with a difficult subject matter, teenage girls are being kidnapped and when they turn up dead it is discovered that they had been pregnant at some point during their kidnapping. Connor is the lead detective who is raising his 16-year-old daughter on his own after his wife passed away a few years ago. To say this case is hitting a little close to home for Connor is an understatement. Samantha is an FBI computer forensics tech brought in to dig into the computers and try to find any connection between the girls. The story is told from multiple perspectives including the villain. However, the villain is only referred to as ‘The Agent’ throughout and it is not revealed who that is until very close to the end. When their identity was revealed, I found myself thinking it how was that possible when they were involved in a particular scene so I had to go back to that scene and reread it to double check and my memory was wrong in regards to their involvement. I loved these characters and was sucked right into the story and did not want to put it down. I immediately picked up book 2 after finishing this one.
