You have never met an (ex) FBI agent like Brigid Quinn Brigid’s career - the disappearance and presumed murder of her young protégée, Jessica. Floyd knows things about that terrible night that were never made public, and offers to lead the cops to Jessica's body in return for a plea bargain. It should finally be the end of a dark chapter in Brigid’s life. Except…the new FBI agent on the case, Laura Coleman, thinks the confession is fake, and Brigid finds she cannot walk away from violence and retribution after all.

Any additional comments?

This was a terrific listen! Crime story interesting but not too gory. Story revolves around three female FBI agents, two of whom you really get to know and appreciate, especially with their flaws on display as well as their strengths. The other one is dead unfortunately. As 60+ reader I was moved by sharing some of the same historical memories as the protagonist. But what really distinguished this book for me was the depiction of the later in life marriage of the senior agent which did not overshadow the crime story but gave it a bittersweet resonance. Bring on the sequels!
