Publisher's Summary

An artist hiding from an escaped killer uncovers one of World War II’s most dangerous secrets - a secret that desperate men will do anything to keep hidden.

After the murder of her twin sister, Murphy Anderson changed her name and appearance and moved to Kodiak, Alaska, to avoid the press and publicity. But when local authorities discover she's an artist and request her help in drawing a dying man's memories, she unintentionally ends up in the limelight again - and may be back in the killer's crosshairs.

The deathbed confessions of an Alaskan hunter has Murphy drawing five bodies discovered on remote Ruuwaq Island 10 years ago. But what investigators discover there has them mystified. Evidence suggests that the bodies may have been deliberately destroyed, and what they uncover in an abandoned World War II Quonset hut only brings more questions.

As one by one the people who were at the hut die, Murphy knows there is something much deeper at stake. What happened there during WWII? And who is willing to kill to keep those secrets buried?

Wow! A must read!

More plot twists than any other book I’ve read, interesting, plausible, intricate and well written. I need to listen to the entire thing again to catch more that I missed. This is excellent!

Excellent listen to on audible.

Fast paced, interesting plot all the way to the end and the characters were interesting. I really liked how the suspense of the novel was the main thing and the romance was not squishy, just an occasional sideline.

A Feast...

Feast of suspense, knowledge of forensics, and of PTDS-based derangement, superimposed on a brilliant main character who comes full-circle on handling her issues, and emerges—well, read it and find out.
