When Isabelle Coleman, a blonde, beautiful young girl goes missing, everyone from the small town of Denton joins the search. They can find no trace of the town’s darling, but Detective Josie Quinn finds another girl they didn’t even know was missing.
Mute and unresponsive, it’s clear this mysterious girl has been damaged beyond repair. All Josie can get from her is the name of a third girl and a flash of a neon tongue piercing that matches Isabelle’s.
The race is on to find Isabelle alive, and Josie fears there may be other girls in terrible danger. When the trail leads her to a cold case labelled a hoax by authorities, Josie begins to wonder is there anyone left she can trust?
Someone in this close-knit town is committing unspeakable crimes. Can Josie catch the killer before another victim loses their life?
Utterly gripping crime for readers who adored Angela Marsons, Helen Fields and Robert Dugoni. You will be sleeping with the lights on once you discover the first in this unputdownable new crime thriller series.

This exciting series launch from Regan (Kill for You) finds Det. Josie Quinn suspended from the Denton, Pa., police force for using excessive force and impatiently waiting for her police sergeant husband, Ray Quinn, to sign divorce papers so she can marry the man she loves, someone she knows Ray hates. When 17-year-old high school student Isabelle Coleman vanishes, Josie fears Isabelle's disappearance may be linked to other cases of missing girls in nearby areas. The sudden appearance of a mute and obviously traumatized girl, who has been missing for close to a year and is wearing Isabelle's tongue barbell, confirms Josie's suspicions. Frustrated and baffled as she watches her colleagues fail to follow crucial leads, she suspects a conspiracy among Denton's law enforcement community to protect those responsible for these crimes. At great personal peril, Josie leaves the sidelines to pursue the truth. Regan keeps the dramatic reveals coming. Readers will look forward to Josie's further adventures.
Non stop pace! Great book! Characters are well written
This book series came recommended by goodreads as it is similar to Lina Castillo’s, An Amish Murder with Chief of police Kate Burkholder in Amish Country Pennsylvania. While this book is similar it has its own perks, including the hunk boyfriend named Luke. I love a good mystery/thriller and this author and book sure does deliver! I certainly will be finishing the entire series! 10/10 would recommend
This story was much better than some of the novels I’ve been reading. I’ll certainly try another by this author in this series.
