Publisher's Summary

She could hear nothing but the sound of her own heartbeat. It was dark, and the rough ground scraped against her as she tried to move. Being alone was strange to her - she was so used to her big family, to the noise, the warmth, but the last thing she wanted was for the woman to return....

When Detective Clara Jefferies returned home to Alber, Utah, she knew it would take a long time to convince the closed community to trust her. So, she is surprised to be called to private land up in the mountains, until she hears that the bones of a young girl have been found. And hidden in the dark depths of the grave are the remains of a baby, too....

Digging into the town’s missing persons files, Clara is shocked to discover that pregnant girls have been going missing for years. And when she spots Ash Crawford, the first cop on the scene, praying over the bodies, she begins to suspect that he knows more about the victim than he’s letting on. 

With Crawford staying silent, and the identity of the girl still unknown, Clara’s only choice is to visit every family living on the mountaintop, desperate to find what they might be hiding. But doing so means facing the man she was once bound to and the tall iron gates of the ranch she ran away from all those years ago. 

Then, another pregnant girl is reported missing, and Clara ramps up her search, racing to find her alive. But can she uncover the town’s dark secrets in time to save both the girl and her unborn child? 

A heart-pounding crime thriller that twists and turns like a roller coaster, leaving you on the edge of your seat. Listeners who love Lisa Regan, Linda Castillo, and Kendra Elliot will be completely addicted.

I guessed the ending right from the beginning

If you want a little bit of insight into the sickening world of polygamous marriages with a sense of a whodunnit then you’ll like this. It’s a “thriller” where you will know the perp and wait until the clueless characters figure it out too. Poor health: both mental and physical, poor hygiene and shortened life expectancies are thing I didn’t know that polygamy breeds. Women and children are treated as property to be used and disposed of as their “husband” wishes. I did a little research about it and I think it’s true that states where this is practiced need to stop it. It’s very cruel.

Slow moving

Not awful, and I wanted to like it. Didn’t even finish the book. It’s just not that interesting.

Plots- really good. Main character- so unlikeable

The plots are really good. Entertaining story lines. But the main character is so incredibly unlikeable. I can't fathom why Clara has to be so unlikeable.
