Private investigator Lance Kruger was just a boy when his father vanished twenty-three years ago. Since then he's lived under the weight of that disappearance - until his father's car is finally dredged up from the bottom of Grey Lake. It should be a time for closure, except for the skeleton found in the trunk. A missing person case gone cold has become one of murder, and Lance and attorney Morgan Dane must face the deadly past that's risen to the surface.

This book was pretty good the first half though has way too much chit-chat and going over the same things and it was just a little unrealistic. The second half of the book was pretty good,now that the second half was a different story it made sense and flowed together nicely.

It was a typical evening at a mall outside Portland, Maine. Three teenage friends waited for the movie to start. A boy flirted with the girl selling sunglasses. Then the shooters arrived. The chaos and carnage lasted only eight minutes before the killers were taken down. But for those who lived through it, the effects would last forever. But one person wasn't satisfied with the shockingly high death toll at the DownEast Mall. And as the survivors slowly heal, find shelter, and rebuild, they will discover that another conspirator is lying in wait - and this time, there might be nowhere safe to hide.

Something sinister is going on in Baronville. The rust belt town has seen four bizarre murders in the space of two weeks. Cryptic clues left at the scenes - obscure Bible verses, odd symbols - have the police stumped. Amos Decker and his FBI colleague Alex Jamison are in Baronville visiting Alex's sister and her family. It's a bleak place: a former mill and mining town with a crumbling economy and rampant opioid addiction. Decker has been there only a few hours when he stumbles on a horrific double murder scene.

I really enjoyed this book there was lots of twists and turns and ending was great! There is a lot of unexpected things happened that you won't see coming at all .
Read/listen to this book, it is full of great conspiracies and an ending that you will not see coming!!
I could have done without the accolades to hillary clinton after the book was done...really over the top and so unnecessary!!!!

I enjoyed this book it was a great little mystery. The only thing I didn't like was that Mary, an adult Woman, & former CIA agent acts like a teenage girl when it comes to the two men in her life it just seems over the top & does nothing to enhance the story.
