Hang on for the second chapter in the gut-wrenching trilogy that edges ever closer to revealing the secrets behind little Bonnie Duncan’s disappearance. Johansen’s intense storytelling style drags readers into a whirlpool of danger and treachery that can have horrifying results. It’s awesome!
At the end of the previous novel, Joe Quinn was gravely wounded by killer Paul Black. Fear of losing Joe forces Eve’s memories back to their initial meeting and how they worked together to stop a child killer. Black had claimed that Bonnie’s biological father John Gallo killed her. As John suffered from a blackout at that time, he can’t be certain he didn’t. With Eve staying by Joe’s side, it is up to Catherine Lang to track down Gallo for the truth. (ST.
