Publisher's Summary

A picture in a small black frame...

A knotted rope...

An abandoned carnival...

The Olive Park Murders. Some say the most horrific unsolved case in California history.

1997 - Olive Park, California - the bodies of three children are found buried in shallow graves, brutally murdered. One of the most intensive investigations in California history fails to find any trace of the killer and the case goes cold.  

Fifteen years later - the newly formed Ongoing Investigation Division, charged with closing cold cases, is handed as its very first case - the Olive Park Murders. Detectives Stan Wyld and Jake Steiner, together with assistant Mallory Dimante, reopen the Olive Park case and find nothing new, until their examination of the original burial site turns up one chilling piece of evidence that proves Olive Park is no longer just a cold case about three dead children. 

The truth is much worse. For the twisted killer of Olive Park has never stopped and has already chosen its next victim. And no one will be able to protect her. No one.

This is a tightly written detective
story. Although it unfolds
slowly the author carefully builds an undercurrent of dark, very dark forces circling. Just an excellent book.

Couldn't stop listening-suprise ending

Loved the book. Lots of interesting characters and twists and turns in the story. Loved narrator's performance. I was so surprised at the ending and the way everything worked together. It was hard to stop listening from about Chapter 25 on. I stayed up way too late many nights listening. .

Needs work

The trio of detective characters are interesting, but the villain was one dimensional. I have lived in Sacramento and was hoping for more local color...and the reader needs to check the pronunciation of place names. Placerville is in gold country, hence its name.
