After seven years as a Chicago homicide detective, Lisa Grant has hit a wall. Ready for a kinder, gentler life, she takes a job as a small-town police chief. But the discovery of a human skeleton by a construction crew at the edge of town taxes the resources of her department. A call for assistance brings detective Mac McGregor, an ex-Navy SEAL, to her doorstep. As they work to solve the mystery behind the unmarked grave, danger begins to shadow them. Someone doesn't want this dead person telling any tales--and will stop at nothing to make certain a life-shattering secret stays buried.

Master storyteller Irene Hannon is back with an exciting new series featuring former special forces operatives now in the thick of the action in civilian life. Hannon is at the top of her game in this can't-put-it-down thriller that will have readers up until the wee hours devouring every page.
This was a new to me author, and one I picked up on the strength of one of the narrator's: Thérèse Plummer and the genre: Romantic Suspense. It sounded interesting and I always love to discover new authors.

The story starts about 15 years prior with 3 young people at the scene of a young dead woman.  They are discussing what needed to happen to keep them from being in trouble.  One female took over and was busy pointing out how all three of their lives would be changed for the worse if the details of the night came out. Plans are made to keep that from happening.

Then comes Present Day and someone has found bones. We meet Mac McGregor a detective for the county, as he is sent out to assist Lisa Grant, the police chief of a small town within that county where the bones were found. They begin an investigation into the bones, to find out who they belonged to and what happened to her.

Though this could be described as Christian fiction, it was more spiritual in nature and was a clean romance. Although the romance was definitely second fiddle to the mystery portion. Our villain was especially scary. This is one of the book that you would have no problem sharing with either parents other family members who enjoy a bit of mystery or suspense.

The book started off with Jennifer Grace narrating, but then transitioned into Thérèse Plummer. They did such a good job of doing emoting the voices and telling the story, that I barely noticed who was doing the speaking. It was just an a great listen.  I really just enjoyed this book overall and gave this book 4 stars.

Thanks to Audiobox Jukebox and Recorded Books for the opportunity to listen and review this book.

  1. I've been wanting to try this author and wondered how Christian her stories were as they're marketed as Christian fiction. I'll add this to my library wish list.
