Publisher's Summary

Book four in the New York Times best-selling Rose Gardner Investigations series.

Rose Gardner feels like she’s up a creek without a paddle. Her sister is dying, her secret boyfriend, James Malcolm, is struggling to protect the county underworld from an upstart drug dealer, and her ex has moved back to town with a bee in his bonnet and a mission to root out corruption in the county. To make matters worse, Neely Kate is in dire straits, too - the past she’s spent years trying to forget has finally caught up to her, with horrific fallout. They’re in the thick of danger, and everyone’s quick to tell them they’d do best to hunker down and keep to themselves.

But mysteries have a way of finding Rose and Neely Kate. A mother contacts them about finding her missing teenage daughter the same day they find a different young woman stranded by the side of the road. They know they should turn down the case, just as they should ignore the signs that the woman with the broken down car is running from something, but for Rose and Neely Kate, curiosity will always have a stronger call than danger.

Another wonderful Rose story

I love the audio books and Shannon McManus' narration of Denise Grover Swank's books about Rose Gardner. Rose has so much going on in her life with her sister dying of cancer plus solving her investigations, and her Lady in Black. Things are sure getting sticky for Rose with her connections with James and the crime world. I hope I can wait for the next audio version of the series. Denise really knows how to bring out the emotions in her books.

The books keep getting better and better. I can hardly wait for the next book. Rose and Skeeter get so close in this book only to have to be apart but Skeeter finally confesses something to Rose she never thought he would. Emotions are high on this one. Read it you wont be disappointed.
