Special Agent Dagny Gray is a member of a small FBI team with unprecedented independence. To maintain their autonomy, the team must continue to solve big cases. To stay on the team, Dagny must keep her personal demons under control.
When Father Diego Vega tells her that undocumented workers are vanishing from a small town gripped by immigration politics, Dagny thinks she's found her next case. But without bodies or proof of foul play, her boss won't let her take it. Defying his orders, Dagny risks her career to investigate with Father Vega.
The families of the victims don't trust her. The local police won't help her, and the sheriff wants to stop her. Deep down, she worries that she's not going to find the missing men alive. But what she uncovers is more horrifying than anything she could have imagined....

I ended up enjoying this book very much. I found it hard to get started because of the subject matter, I deal with Hispanics, legal and illegal every day, so the subject touched close to home. I started off with the Kindle version which I won on a Goodreads giveaway and then switched to the Audible version and was able to get through the book much easier.
The writing was excellent and I stayed on the seat of my pants the last half of the book. There was a lot of character growth in Dagny and there was plenty of character information on the other main characters in the book. I didn't feel like they were 1 or 2 dimensional characters.
There were twists I didn't expect, there were a couple of twists I thought would go one way but ended going a totally different direction, so I was kept guessing. The pace was brisk without being too fast and I was kept on my toes in a couple of places trying to figure out what was going to happen.
Angela Dawe did an excellent job in the narration, pacing was good, emotions were what they should be. All and all I thoroughly enjoyed the book.
I look forward to reading other Dagny Gray novels as they come out.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
yes, as it had the flavor of Linda Howard's Cry No More, a romance mystery.
This story showcases "perception is more important than reality".
I hope author has book # 3 in the hopper with Ms Dawe reading it. Book #1 reader sample didn't appeal to me. (no sample of her male voice)
Lots of characters to like in this story as it is a fast pace good dialogue story.
Victor, special agent forensics accountant, is a fave because he has brains and puppy dog tenacity to follow our fearless heroine Dagey. Father Diego, "a lot of handsome wasted on a priest."
Ms Dawe has really hit her stride in this book with great accents and voice inflections.
Ms Dawe's male voices are her best quality (lots of male characters in this story) and she has wonderfully improved her cadence. (note: I do use the new 1.25x speed to match the author's intent)
I just finshed Marcia Clark's Moral Defense, both are outstanding listens. Not to be missed.
This is a long story that I didn't want to end therefore that makes me feel good about it.
I realized the author circled back in the last few chapters, and I got a wow ending.
First book, "the bubble thief" was great. this book is simply expected. ending made no sense
