Publisher's Summary

She picked up the wrong file, and now everything is falling apart.

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Lorhainne Eckhart comes a new Billy Jo McCabe mystery set on a small island in the Pacific Northwest. 

When social worker Billy Jo McCabe accidentally picks up the wrong file, she discovers a shocking, twisted mystery plotted by a high-ranking social worker in the DCFS.

When Billy Jo McCabe accidentally picks up the wrong file, before she realizes her mistake, she discovers a secret no one was supposed to find.

She takes the file to the newly appointed chief of police, Mark Friessen, but he doesn’t believe her - that is, until they discover dozens more files and missing money from vulnerable at-risk children who have aged out of the system and are living on the streets.

As she digs into the files, the system, and the people involved, everything falls apart.

And what Mark and Billy Jo discover is a secret far more shocking than missing money.

Great Read

The Children (Billy Jo McCabe Mystery Book 7) was a great read by Lorhainne Eckhart. Social worker Billy Jo accidentally picks up the wrong file and discovers that there is a mystery plotted by a high ranking social worker in the DCFS. She takes the file to Mark but he doesn’t believe her. They wind up discovering dozens more files and missing money from vulnerable at risk children. These children aged out of the system and are living on the streets. I enjoyed reading this book and cant wait to read more by the author.

Book 7 had me by the throat

Billy Jo certainly finds trouble! In this latest adventure, she and Mark chase down a corrupt social worker little knowing what horrendous events they will discover.

Yet another extremely written, addictive, and exciting story that I thoroughly enjoyed.
