Description

"Gudenkauf proves herself the master of the smart, suspenseful small-town thriller that gets right under your skin." (Gilly Macmillan, New York Times best-selling author of The Nanny)

Everyone has a secret they’ll do anything to hide....

Twenty-five years ago, the body of 16-year-old Eve Knox was found in the caves near her home in small-town Grotto, Iowa - discovered by her best friend, Maggie, and her sister, Nola. There were a handful of suspects, including her boyfriend, Nick, but without sufficient evidence the case ultimately went cold.

For decades Maggie was haunted by Eve’s death and that horrible night. Now a detective in Grotto, and seven months pregnant, she is thrust back into the past when a new piece of evidence surfaces and the case is reopened. As Maggie investigates and reexamines the clues, secrets about what really happened begin to emerge. But someone in town knows more than they’re letting on, and they’ll stop at nothing to keep the truth buried deep.

Check out these other riveting novels of suspense by best-selling author Heather Gudenkauf: The Weight of Silence, These Things Hidden, One Breath Away, Little Mercies, Missing Pieces, Not a Sound, and Before She Was Found.

Non stop animal torture...

So the girl, not the main character, not the murder victim but the sister, kills animals, tortures them while others watch and and do.nothing. In one scene we are treated to the disturbing details of her opening up a dog with a scalpel with the girl then runnimg away and no one thinks to pick up the poor animal and get it to the vet? No that doesn't happen. To top. It off and what really makes it upsetting the girl grows up to be a VETERINARIAN. I'm sorry the narration is fine but I found the animal cruelty so distressing especially dissection... It ruined it for me. Not sure how others liked it so much. I don't like books with animal torture and I warn others. Beware, there's animal killing, dissection. Experimentation.... Sigh. Disturbing and sad.

This was her worst book BY FAR.

The last few Heather Gudenkauf books have been nothing short of brilliant, so I had high expectations when I picked this up. Unfortunately, this book read like the first draft of an amateur’s mystery novel. The main character’s motivations did not make sense, and she was the absolute WORST detective in the history of literature. Not once did she think critically about the situations she found herself in. Not once did she act out anything resembling police procedure. She was an easily-manipulated, unobservant idiot I actively rooted against due to her stupidity and self-absorption. I found myself shouting at this book as I suffered through it, because of how infuriating and out-of-touch it felt! The plot was similar to five or six other mystery books I’ve read in the last year, and I will say this— if you do not enjoy gaslighting-based mysteries, where the main character is tricked into believing something she did not do— THEN DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. I also have to point out that, had police procedure been taken into account at any point, the end would have no validity due to conflict of interest and failure to disclose personal prejudices against the accused. If you make it through this monstrosity, you’ll know what I mean. Obviously, I do NOT recommend this book. I loved Not A Sound and Before She Was Found! By the end of THIS book, however, I was left wondering if Heather Gudenkauf has lost her touch.

overall ok

I really enjoyed the book, it's not very police involved. The characters were all crazy! Being that they were all crazy you obviously couldn't tell who the bad guy was but everyone in your life cant really be that insane haha Also felt a little young adult to me, fine with me but some wont like that feel to it.

Mystery left me wanting more

I usually LOVE Heather Gudenkauf mysteries but I found myself frustrated with the plot. As a detective mystery I felt there was more plot needed with going back and going over the old case of Eve Knox's murder. I really wanted to like Maggie more as both a person and a police detective; as a person she did not give people enough credit, as the reader follows her through the past and the present, she psyches herself out all the time in giving credit to how people (loved ones) will react if she tells the truth. As a police detective, she underestimates Nola Knox as every turn, both as a child and now as an adult. Why didn't Maggie ever go interview the psychologist Gonzales who met with Nola after the murder and her run in with Eve's old boyfriend? Why is Maggie taking chances when she is ready to have a baby? Of course, I could not put this book down, the suspense was thrilling but I was uncomfortable a lot with Maggie, her professionalism as a cop, her choices, her secrets.

good but not amazing

It took a while for this book to pick up but I couldn't stop listening once it did. I have to say I predicted the twist pretty early on but enjoyed it nonetheless. I still think this wasn't as good or engaging as Before She Was Found but if you're willing to give it a few hours in, this story picks up nicely

Main character kind of annoying

The plot is well constructed but the main character makes you want to tear your hair out!
