FBI Special Agent Cate Wilde is back home on a remote Pacific Northwest island when she gets the call: a teenager’s skeletal remains have been found on a nearby island. Together with Tessa Black, a childhood friend turned local deputy, Cate confronts dreary weather and bleak leads to make sense of the death. The complications pile up as Cate is distracted by the coroner on the case - and by nagging memories that draw her two decades into the past. The remains suggest eerie similarities between this victim, and Cate and Tessa’s friend Samantha, who disappeared when she was fourteen.

Too light for me. Very short. No real development of a mystery. When it was coming to an end, I wondered why the twist would be to keep the book going. I did not expect it to be so short.

The storyline was wonderful but this narrator almost ruined it. She read quickly with little feeling. I much preferred Peter Joyce!
