Publisher's Summary

Smoke curls from what’s left of the beautiful family home on the edge of the woods. The heat is unbearable as she descends the stairs to the basement, past a set of bicycles—two big, one small. That’s when she sees three little white bones in the cracked earth at her feet, turning her blood to ice....

When firefighters tackling a blazing house in a quiet suburb of Pine Valley, California, discover human remains, Detective Katie Scott races to 717 Maple Street. She calls a halt to the excavations the moment she sees the full number and size of the bones; someone has buried a whole family down here.

Working night and day, it’s up to Katie to prove her theory that the fire was no accident, that someone wanted to expose the secret in the basement. Tiny traces of explosives residue found at the scene is all the proof she needs. But the Cross family have been missing for months—leaving friends and loved ones in agonizing pain—what twisted soul would do this now? And why?

The case takes another heart-shattering turn when Katie’s suspicions over recent renovation work on the house leads to the discovery of more bodies in the back yard: two little girls, buried years apart. What other devastating secrets are hidden in this perfect family home? It’s a dead end at every turn as Katie tracks down anyone who knew the family. Just when it looks like all hope is lost, reports of the Cross’ landlord harassing the family before they went missing gives Katie a crucial lead. With a menacing grey sedan following her every move, how many more innocent lives will be lost before Katie can dig up the truth?

An absolutely gripping and totally addictive thriller from a USA Today and Amazon best-selling author.

Another great one

Another awesome book in the series. The path to the ending was full of twists, and led to a conclusion that I did not see coming. It is quite the ride, kept me wondering who’s next. Hope there are many more books in this series..

So many tropes, so little time

This is cliché ridden schlock. War vets, police as family, “plucky” (read irresponsible) female detective, parents killed in a car crash etc, etc, etc. It’s a pity because the actual mystery was quite good. I think I’m going to stop reading small town American detective stories. Predictable and white. Very white.
