Publisher's Summary

Strands of blonde hair escape from beneath the sheet and catch the dawn light creeping through the window. Silence falls as the fabric is drawn back to reveal the body of a young girl, her hands folded on her chest, her long lashes resting on her cold, pale cheeks.

When Detective Casey White finds the body of a teenager perfectly preserved in salt in an abandoned beach vacation home, her heart shatters. Tina Somners has been missing since she set off to meet her friends for spring break. Her parents will be inconsolable at this tragic end to their search.

Determined to find justice for this sweet girl who was looking forward to a summer full of laughter, Casey delves into old case files and gets her first lead: Years ago, a man murdered his wife, totally covering her body in salt. But he’s been locked up in prison all this time.

Casey is racing to interview him when another perfectly preserved body is found just down the beach from the first crime scene. A cryptic, unfinished note is clutched in the girl’s hand. Are the bodies being kept this way so the killer can pass on a message?

Certain that there’s more significance to the salt than just preservation, Casey tracks down a man Tina’s friends say they saw watching them on the beach - and unlocks a terrible secret. But then a final threatening message arrives, addressed to Casey herself. Can she bring this twisted monster to justice before more young lives are destroyed forever?

Perfect for fans of Kendra Elliot, Robert Dugoni, and Melinda Leigh.

Mummies, kangaroos and joeys..,

Yes, this book has it all. It starts off with Casey working to get back in shape to return to work…when she discovers a body. Who killed and dumped the teen amidst abandoned houses? This leads to an even more gruesome discovery…mummified bodies inside one of the houses, with riddles in their grips. Bodies rack up but it seems the team can’t catch a break…until they do. Will this end well for the team? Very intriguing story. Let’s not forget the sub plot of Casey’s search for her missing daughter! Looking forward to the next book.

I love her books

I've listened to the series and couldn't wait for this book to come out. I downloaded it the day it was released. This is one of those books you can't put down. I'm excited that the series is continuing.

Narrator is over dramatic.

I really try my best to not give a bad review. The book, the story line are you excellent but the narrator is over dramatic.
All through the book I felt like returning it. I hope the next in the series is not narrated by her. Patricia can be such an excellent narrator if she doesn’t try so hard. At least that’s what it seems to me.
