A sheriff haunted by the past.
A private investigator who is anything but what he seems.
A secret that will poison their case…and their future.
King County Sheriff Blair Sanders has seen evil. But her childhood is nothing compared to discovering the remains of a social media influencer on an isolated hiking trail. To unmask a venomous killer, she must use every resource, including the assistance of an enthusiastic PI that represents everything she despises about investigation for profit.
Colson Rutherford is only after one thing: the next adventure. Searching for a missing influencer was supposed to fund his next experience. Not open his heart to the intense sheriff who presents a puzzle more exciting than the case.
As the body count rises, Blair can’t deny his insight into the investigation or that she might’ve underestimated him and his effect on her all along. But the lie that defines Colson’s life threatens to end her career—and let a killer go free.
