Publisher's Summary

A riveting story unfolds as past and present crimes entwine.

A 17-year-old case comes back to haunt JR Steele, a semi-retired private investigator. The Army veteran and former police detective has been working as a gunsmith, trying to get by. The blonde who walked into the gun shop yesterday asking for his help is now dead. Death and destruction force him back in the game. But is he still up to the task?

Powerful and ruthless people with connections way beyond Steele’s Florida county don’t want what really happened 17 years ago to see the light of day and they are willing to kill to stop it. Steele is spending as much time trying to keep himself and the dead woman’s gorgeous cyber-smart daughter alive as he is solving this riveting case.

Steele is determined to get to the bottom of things. The clues are there somewhere — he just needs to uncover them without getting killed. But the body count keeps mounting. The dead blonde has awakened a sleeping monster who employs merciless killers to keep old secrets buried. Fortunately, Steele has friends of his own that aren’t afraid to operate on the gray side of the law.

This edge-of-your-seat suspense novel introduces unique Florida characters listeners will never forget in a spellbinding tale.

Very good mystery with an excellent series-long mystery to boot! I guessed Rose’s secret early on but it only made the book that much more intriguing

Very Nice

I really enjoyed this murder mystery, and have ordered the second one. The main characters were likable, and I was definitely drawn in, and didn't see the end coming.

Enjoyed this book

enjoyed this book, but it doesn't have a regular ending. This is true for the successive books in the series. Be prepared to continue buying the series! It is a good cozy mystery of assumed identity.

Well Presented

Greatly enjoyed once I got into the first few pages. Mystery abounds in the characters as the listener is wondering what is being hidden behind each facade that’s presented.

Excellent Author

I found this book to be entertaining from start to finish. It keeps you in suspense the whole way through, and finishes with a surprise ending. I think this author has a brilliant career ahead of her writing this kind of genre. Keep 'em coming!

I love suspenseful novels

I love suspenseful novels that leave me wanting more. The beginning of the book pulled me in immediately with the character development, but got a little bit slow for me after that. As I kept reading I found myself trying to guess the "Who done it" and other character secrets. I really enjoyed the book as it had suspense, and some surprises that I didn't expect. I would recommend reading it!

Entertaining

This was a relatively captivating book! I really enjoyed the separate chapters for each different character, it gave the book more structure and without it I would've been a bit lost. The ending was good and I did not see it coming.
