Publisher's Summary

In the thin glow of moonlight, a mess of auburn curls gleams against the rocks. A girl’s pale hand reaches from a cleft in the boulders, waving weakly. But it’s too late. A wall of raging white water crashes down, swallowing her whole....

A knock on the door late in the evening can only mean trouble for Detective Josie Quinn, but fear chokes her at the news that one of her own team is missing. No one has seen Denton PD’s Press Liaison Amber for days and, as she follows the message scrawled on the frosted windscreen of Amber’s car to a nearby dam, Josie hears a piercing scream that tells her she’s too late. But the body they pull from the freezing water is not Amber....

Josie won’t sleep until she finds a name for the beautiful girl left to drown, and the meaning of the numbers scribbled in a tattered pink diary found on Amber’s desk. She must stay strong and focused for her close-knit team. But as rumors of an argument the night Amber disappeared surface, can she even trust her own colleagues?

Cracking the cryptic numbers reveals a twisted truth about Amber’s family - did anyone really know Amber at all? Finding her alive is Josie’s only chance of knowing the truth. But as a blizzard closes in, how many more precious lives will be snatched before she can?

Do you absolutely love crime thrillers that keep you up all night and leave you sleeping with the lights on? Then this gripping rollercoaster ride, perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine, will have you Totally Hooked!

What the critics say

"Buckle up...never-ending twists and turns. You think you know what to expect...and then BAM she hits you with something so out of the blue that you can’t help but gasp.” (Katie Mettner Books, 5 stars)

Love the stories and characters

I love Josie and her friends and family. Great stories, but I’m writing this specifically to say that another performer like Brittany Pressley or Julia Whelan would bring a stronger performance.

Good but could be better

I hate when have cops off duty without their weapons. I have known many cops and always carry evev off duty because they are never really off duty. I even went water skiing with a cop friend and he only left his gun when he was in the water.

Good however too many people in the story

This book was good but there were so many people in this story I kept getting confused. Other than that it was good.

Could not finish, boring and unbelievable

I wish I would not have wasted my time. I tried to force myself to finish it in hopes for it to get better - it did not. Everything is either boring or unbelievable - from stories to emotions to caracters to dialogues. Never this author ever again.

Dougherty

In chapter 24, I can’t take it seriously with the way they say “Dougherty” when talking about the officer. Other than that, another great story in the series.

Another brilliant addition to Josie Quinn!

This book was another amazing addition to the Josie Quinn series - incredible!

Josie and the team are back, solving another mind boggling mystery, that just gets more and more strange at every turn. Another one you can't put down as you get further in. All the twists and really strange things keep popping up as you go ... so good!
