Another case for Morgan and Lance that will set the heart racing and the pages turning as they race against time, bad guys and the weather to protect the life of one young man.
Morgan Dane, a defence lawyer, and her fiancé, Lance Kruger, a Private Investigator, find themselves embroiled in the case of a missing teen when the mother contacts Lance to help find him following the brutal murder of her husband. As usual the Sheriff’s department are searching out the easy option but with Morgan looking into every suspect and following every lead the right person will be brought to justice.
I have a great fondness for Morgan and Lance as I’ve listened to their story unfold throughout each book. From their reuniting in the first book to Lance’s proposal in the last one and now Morgan’s reluctance to set a date and her heart-to-heart with her Grandfather – it’s all very exciting! Lance is so good with Morgan’s girls and has taken them on as his own, I think it helps that they have pretty much taken him on as well, for the youngest he is essentially the only father she has known.
Lincoln Sharp is also getting in on the romance act. It is nice to see him finding someone to share his time with and I think Olivia would make a good addition to investigative team if Sharp asked her.
A great story, exciting action-packed drama and wonderful characters.
Listened to via Audible. Narrated by Cris Dukehart
When a retired sheriff’s deputy is shot to death in his home, his troubled teenage stepson, Evan, becomes the prime suspect. Even more incriminating, the boy disappeared from the scene of the crime.
Desperate to find her son, Evan’s mother begs PI Lance Kruger for help. She knows her son is innocent. Kruger and defense attorney Morgan Dane want to believe that too, but the evidence against the boy is damning. Just as the trail goes cold, another deputy vanishes. His shocking connection to Evan’s stepfather throws the investigation into chaos as Lance and Morgan fear the worst…that Evan is the killer’s new target.
With so many secrets to unravel, will Lance and Morgan find him before it’s too late?
