Former Army Night Stalker Rick Jordan usually has his camp for foster children to himself during the winter months. But someone has visited recently--leaving a trail of blood. One of the two clues left behind tips Rick off to the identity of his visitor, who soon turns up dead. The police deem it an accident, but Rick isn't convinced. With the help of private investigator Heather Shields, he sets out to decipher the remaining clue. Except someone doesn't want them to succeed--and will stop at nothing to keep them from finding the truth.
With her trademark psychological suspense ratcheting up the tension on every page, bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon takes you on a search for a cold-blooded killer with an ambitious goal and deadly intent.
Hannon (Dangerous Illusions) concludes her Code of Honor trilogy with another rip-roaring crime thriller based on a disappearance. In rural Missouri, former army captain Rick Jordan is running his winter camp for foster children when he notices blood in the snow and finds a good luck charm from his old army buddy, Jackson "Boomer" Dunn. Believing Boomer is in trouble, Rick hires private investigator Heather Shields. There are immediate romantic sparks, but the two try to ignore them as they piece together clues. After tracking down Boomer's ex-girlfriend and discovering she died under mysterious circumstances, Heather suspects the case has moved beyond a mere missing person. When the last person to see Boomer alive turns up dead, the tension rises and Rick becomes convinced Boomer is being tracked by a killer. Hannon nicely blends developments in the case with Rick and Heather's emotional and romantic progress. Both devout Christians, their faith ends up playing a crucial role in how they handle adversity and temptation. A fitting finale to the fast-paced series, Hannon's electrifying tale works just as well as a standalone.
