Quite a fun thriller to sink my claws into. My first foray into the works of author Stacy Green, I loved how her main character Nikki Hunt pulled me into the story.
I was quite enamored by Nikki. There was a depth to her, completely molded by her past and conviction of her present. The author used broad strokes to etch her character. Using a fast pace to the underlying storyline and twisted plot lines, interest in her raised to a pitch.
A lone ranger in a police procedural in good, but it’s even better when there is a great team backing up. This one had a kickass one. The author brought out convoluted hidden twists of the past into the present case, making Nikki question all that she believed to be true. I liked the vulnerability and strength of such a situation.
This was more thrilling than a normal police procedural, and I was happy that I got to the beginning of a new series. This was a clear whodunit, so I was happy.

In the remote forests of Stillwater, Minnesota, you can scream for days and no one will hear you. So when the bodies of two fifteen-year-old girls are discovered frozen in the snow, Special Agent Nikki Hunt is sure the killer is local: someone knew where to hide them and thought they’d never be found.
Home for the first time in twenty years, Nikki sees that the whole town had been frantically searching for missing best friends Madison and Kaylee, and when she finds out who Madison’s step-father is, she becomes desperate to lead the case. John was once the person she trusted most in the world, who stood by her when she was just sixteen and her parents were murdered. Who supported her when she identified their killer, Mark Todd.
But when Nikki arrives at the Sheriff’s office, she’s confronted by protesters eager to see Mark freed. With new evidence that could clear his name, Mark has appealed his conviction and his brother Rory begs Nikki to take a look at what they’ve found.
Nikki knows she must focus on the killer at large, but Rory makes her wonder if she put her trust in the right people all those years ago. Are Madison and Kaylee’s deaths connected to her parents’ murders? And can she face up to her past before another life is taken?
