Publisher's summary

Two missing persons. One apparent suicide. Three cases pushing PI Jessie Cole and crime reporter Ben Morrison closer to the edge.

Lacey Geiger could be a very rich woman. If Jessie Cole can find her. The beneficiary of a sizable estate, Lacey vanished years ago after escaping an abusive childhood and is veiled now behind a new identity. Jessie has two weeks to find her. It’s enough time to discover that Lacey is hiding from so much more than anyone realized. But she isn’t the only one with secrets. And Jessie’s not the only one searching for the truth.

A concerned daughter has asked for help finding her mother - a woman said to have been murdered thirty years ago. And Jessie’s colleague Ben, an amnesiac still struggling with the bloody memories of a shattered life, is nearer to piecing together a very dark picture. Especially when someone he detests is found dead, hanging from a tree by a riverbank.

Now as the mysteries, puzzles, and lies of three investigations are unearthed, Jessie and Ben will risk everything to bring all that is hidden into the light.

This is a busy book!

This is a very good addition to the Jessie Cole series. If you haven't listened to to the previous books I would suggest listening in order for continuity. However, these can each be listened to as stand alone books.
The publisher's summary is excellent and leaves little room for any additional information with out adding spoilers.
I will say it sure has plenty of twists. The book begins with a kidnapping of a husband and wife. Their situation is not good. They've drugged and wake up buried in a box together. It doesn't take long for the wife (Lacey) to learn things about her husband that maybe she would have preferred not to.
There are two other cases Jessie and her protege Zee are working on.
Meanwhile , Jessie's amnesiac friend Ben is trying to piece together missing memories. He may not like what he finds.
The book ends with a cliffhanger so I'm not sure if this is the end of this series as I've seen some people say or just another installment.
Kate Rudd does an excellent job narrating.
This book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Bad last chapter! And this is the last book?


Wow! I loved this book until the last chapter. I’m not crazy about where the author took this so I’m not sure I’ll read the next book if one of the MC’s, that I really like, turns out to be a serial killer.

Anyway, this was a really good story about 3 different stories going on: Jason and Lacey were buried alive. Nathaniel Snyder was accused of killing his wife, on the testimony of his father-in-law. And someone hung Roger Willis, the pedophile. They were all very good. BUT mostly, I love Zee Gatley’s character. She has no problem with the voices of Marion, Lucy and Francis who occupy her head. She says she would be lonely without them. And they say some of the funniest things sometimes.

There was no romance in this and the F-bomb was used 31 times.

As to the narration: You don’t get much better than Kate Rudd. Her voices are perfect and when she reads it’s so full of feelings and emotions.

I just read where this is the last book in the series. Which means we'll never really know the truth about Ben? That's so uncalled for! I feel cheated..

please please please tell me there is a 5th book

you can't leave me like this!!! I mean. the story could totally end as is but I really want more. what becomes of Ben? does he continue? get caught? truly go back to his life? does he ever find out his true intentions that night? omg. this story could easily have 3 more books. and I really wish they circled back to Jason. I needed more there.

End of a great series

A sign of a grest series is when characters n their lives come alive. You get jnvolved in their daily lives n you're eager to learn how they unravel the situations they get into.. n you become sad when the book ends. Looking forward to reading part 5 .

Love the series, can't wait for more!

This book didn't have the same excitement and mystery to it as the previous ones in the series, but it was still good. The final 4 minutes is what matters, I guess! Knowing there will be more!!!

Really good

Enjoyed this book very much. I especially liked to see that when confined together under ground that people realize who they really are as people.

A LOT happened

While I am so sad that this is the very last Jessie Cole book, I do have to tell you that this was my favorite of them all. So much happened. We learned so much about the current characters in this series. It was funny. It was sad. It was amazing!

I wish there was a different narrator

I am loving this series. This book did have some repeat themes from another book in the series - Zee repeats dumb stuff she's done in the past, someone gets buried alive....
I didn't read the series back-to-back or the repetition would have bothered me more.
I loved the 3 different "mysteries" going on at the same time - it kept me on my toes. Jessie is hired to find a missing woman, which she assigns to her assistant Zee. Collin (Jessie's cop boyfriend) is investigating the child predator case from the last book, and a couple is kidnapped and "buried deep". The story jumps between all of these story lines and POVs.
The narrator is pretty bad IMO. Like in other books, she enunciates too hard, leaving pauses between words, especially conjunctions. The language from the author is awkward too. Dialog includes a lot of adverbs and unnaturally formal speech, from all the characters regardless of their personality or background, which makes it hard to realistically picture them.

Another great book

Absolutely loved this book, great narrating by Kate Rudd. Will be starting another series by T.R.Ragan, becoming one of my favourite Authors.
