Publisher's Summary

Five years ago, Claire Fletcher escaped her abductor. But some scars never fade, and surviving was just the beginning...

When Claire sees a car full of children careen into a river, she rushes to the rescue. But the driver, a mother named Leah Holloway, prefers to drown. For Claire and her ex, Detective Connor Parks, it doesn't add up. What would motivate a woman with a beautiful family and a successful career to resort to such unspeakable extremes? What Connor finds out confirms Claire's suspicions of something dreadful behind Holloway's picture-perfect facade: a link between the terrified mother and a serial strangler targeting Sacramento soccer moms.

As Claire and Connor are drawn back together, their investigation leads them to unearth everything Holloway was hiding. What they find could be the only way to stop a killer from striking again.

A true suspense mystery

I thought this book was very complete in the sense that I felt satisfied with the ending. I didn’t realize until maybe a quarter into the story that there is a book before this one from a few years ago that links the two. Had I known, I would’ve listened to it first - despite the fact that this book works as a stand alone, because this it is very heavy with references to the earlier book. I would’ve definitely appreciated more of the story with that background info. However, this story was excellently paced and the characters were well developed - not fantastic, but decent and consistent. It is also interesting because there really aren’t any actual twists and turns but the events are still very engaging. What I mean by this (I hope this info doesn’t spoil it for some) is that the direction the plot leads up to and hints at, doesn’t deviate. It does recover somewhat by the addition of unusual circumstances but there is no real surprise - the surprise is just all the detail that is revealed. I kept hoping for certain outcomes for some twists but there really wasn’t any. But like I said, the author makes up for this in other ways. Overall, it is very well written and was for sure worth the credit.
