Publisher's Summary

In the follow-up to the #1 Kindle bestseller Walk into Silence, a young girl takes her own life. But what - or who - drove her to it?

When a teenager’s body is found at the base of the old water tower, Detective Jo Larsen is one of the first on the scene. Tragically, it appears to be a clear case of suicide.

But the more Jo learns about Kelly Amster, the more she finds herself needing to understand why the high school sophomore would take that fatal plunge. As they interview family and friends, Jo and her partner, Hank Phelps, begin to fit together the pieces of a dark puzzle. Something happened to Kelly in their small town of Plainfield, Texas - and it sent the young girl straight over the edge.

Haunted by the memories of her own childhood, Jo digs deep into the shadowy corners of a seemingly tight-knit community - to uncover a devastating secret…

Decent read and listen..



You could tell this was based in a very small town because the story was about a 15 year old girl who killed herself and dogs that were being dog-napped. You knew for sure that Kelly jumped from the water tower because that was chapter one, and it says so in the blurb. The rest of the book was about Jo Larson and Hank Phelps trying to find out what drove her to it. And what was happening to the dog was disgustingly cruel.

There was nothing romantic or sexual about this story. The F-bomb was used 2 times.

As to the narration: Christina Traister made the narration very boring. She made Jo Larson’s voice sound very soft and robotic. It was like she whispered through the entire book. As did Detective Hank Phelps. His voice wasn’t too bad but the whispering got on my nerves. She read in a normal voice, yelled, laughed, cried but when Jo or Hank spoke it was in an unemotional whisper.
