Publisher's summary

What happens when you stumble across a case that should never have been closed?

Detective Mark Friessen uncovers a disturbing mystery: A little girl was taken, but when evidence disappeared, the case was closed. While cleaning out closed cases, Mark discovers a file on a missing toddler, Gabby Martin. After reading the two pages within, he realizes evidence is missing. The only interviews, by the detective who previously had Mark’s job, was conducted with a bitter ex-wife and a former business partner, both of whom pointed at the father. It appears to have been an open-and-shut case. The father took Gabby in retaliation for a bitter custody dispute with her mother, and then, he killed her. Although no body was found, the father was charged and convicted, and the case was closed.

However, an old woman the town has dubbed Crazy Carla disagrees. She says she saw everything, and she contradicts the investigating detective’s notes - yet the local cops pursued only one lead, the father. As Mark secretly delves into the closed case and realizes that nothing adds up, he reaches out to social worker Billy Jo McCabe. Did social services receive any suspicious reports about the girl or her parents? What Billy Jo soon discovers is a family of secrets, a volatile marriage, and a forbidden relationship - and the mystery of the missing girl, whose body has never been found, becomes a case that should never have been closed.

Great Read

The Cold Case (Billy Jo McCabe Mystery Book 3) was a great read by Lorhainne Eckhart. Mark Friessen uncovers a disturbing mystery, a little girl was taken and the evidence disappeared while the case closed. But there was no body ever found. There is an old woman the town dubbed Crazy Carla, that saw everything and she contradicts the detective’s notes. Mark asks Billy Jo to look into social services reports to see if there was anything. I enjoyed reading this book and cant wait to read more by the author.
