Two dead girls, another one missing, and a secret that will rip a tight-knit community apart.
When a missing teen's body shows up dismembered on the side of the road, Lt. Damien Kaine must crush her parent's hopes of her safe return. The parents are pushing for details and answers. Two things he can't give. The abduction of a second girl brings only one clue. The girls look alike.
As Damien searches for a sadistic killer, a disturbing pattern emerges. The more he digs into the community's history, the more missing girls he finds.
With the lack of evidence or movement forward on the case, a quirky FBI profiler is pulled in to assist with the investigation. Damien wrestles with disdain for the agent and an equally strong sexual attraction to her, as he deals with mounting frustrations.
Tensions rise with the abduction of another girl. Damien and his team are in a race against time to save her. But the case is about to take a frightful turn. What they uncover will not only rock them to their core, it will haunt them forever.

More emphasis at first on the relationships of the detectives, wasn’t sure it was relevant…however continued with book and found it to be a chilling and somewhat gruesome read, but that said it was a very good book in the end!
You need to edit this book!
I’m actually gutted I was enjoying this book until the author used a very insulting racist name calling from one of the main characters, totally unacceptable. Shame I can’t give minus stars for it,
