A Superb Crime Novel. Gripping from Start to Finish.
Two bodies found in a lagoon. A promising FBI special agent.
A crime that occurred almost 20 years ago.
A convoluted mystery novel that grabs you.
If you enjoyed novels like The Silence of the Lambs or TV series such as Twin Peaks and True Detective, this is the story that you have been waiting for.
From chapter 1:
By the time they called me, a whole week had passed since the second body had been discovered. This was a setback, as much of the evidence would have disappeared by then, and I'd have to work with what little evidence the local police, unaccustomed to these types of crimes, would have been able to collect. Luckily I had been allocated a competent enough CSI unit, and as we flew from Washington to Kansas City International Airport, we imagined - quite rightly, as it turned out - that the crime scene would have been spoiled by dozens of well-meaning but clumsy deputies.
Liz, whom I already knew professionally from the only case that I'd worked on up to then, handed me a folder containing photos, the cyanotic bodies of two naked girls abandoned in a lagoon, like the unimportant remnants of a quiet morning picnic. I was staring into the open eyes of one of the young girls, who could not have been more than 20 years old, when I was struck by her plea: "You must find who did this to me."
