“Sometimes our questions are better left unanswered.”
Tracy Crosswhite has spent twenty years questioning the facts surrounding her sister Sarah’s disappearance and the murder trial that followed. She doesn’t believe that Edmund House — a convicted rapist and the man condemned for Sarah’s murder — is the guilty party. Motivated by the opportunity to obtain real justice, Tracy became a homicide detective with the Seattle PD and dedicated her life to tracking down killers.
When Sarah’s remains are finally discovered near their hometown in the northern Cascade mountains of Washington State, Tracy is determined to get the answers she’s been seeking. As she searches for the real killer, she unearths dark, long-kept secrets that will forever change her relationship to her past — and open the door to deadly danger.
This book was absolutely terrifying in the way all great mysteries should be. It started off a little slow but oh boy did it build up and end with a bang. I stayed up all night reading and then had to sleep with the lights on for the rest of the week – didn’t help that the book took place in my home state of Washington, which made it a bit too real.
I am normally not the biggest fan of scary murder mysteries but I loved this book. It had the right dosage of family drama, crime solving, sadness, love and criminal law. This book made me laugh out in joy, cry in sadness, scream in fear and sigh with relief – it took me on quite a roller coaster ride and felt like a blockbuster film. Do yourself a favor and go pick it up now. 5 out of 5 Stars.
