But then a second body turns up. . .
Meanwhile, Anne-Marie Calderone has just arrived in town hoping Sheriff Grayson could help her escape a dangerous stalker. But now Grizzly Falls is starting to feel like a trap. As clues begin pointing toward a homicide suspect, Alvarez senses there's more to this case than others want to believe. A killer has made his way to Grizzly Falls, ready to fulfill a vengeance years in the making. Alvarez and Pescoli must find the target of his wrath—or die trying.
Bestseller Jackson's sixth mystery featuring Grizzly Falls, Mo., detectives Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescoli of the Pinewood County Sheriff's Dept. (after 2013's Ready to Die) lumbers through a tiresome setup before reaching a briefly exciting finish. Anne-Marie Calderone comes to Grizzly Falls on the run from a stalker, hoping that Sheriff Dan Grayson will be able to help her. Unfortunately, Grayson has been shot and is in a coma. While Anne-Marie tries to figure out what to do, Pescoli and Alvarez deal with acting sheriff Hooper Blackwater, as well as with first one, then another Jane Doe, each found with her ring finger missing. Jackson fills space with Pescoli's domestic problems and the convoluted relationships between Grayson's family members, while gradually developing Anne-Marie's story. Series fans may find some interesting developments, but new readers are unlikely to be impressed enough to continue following Pescoli and Alvarez's adventures.
