A disturbing case jogs the traumatic memories of a Nashville forensics specialist in this psychological thriller by the New York Times bestselling author.
When police rescue five-year-old Jenna Thompson from the closet where she's been held captive for days, they tell her she's a lucky girl. Compared to the rest of her family, it's true. But twenty-five years later, even with their killer dead of an overdose, Jenna is still trying to find peace.On leave from her forensic artist job, Jenna returns to Nashville, the city where she lost so much. But instead of closure, she finds a new horror. Detective Rick Morgan needs Jenna's expertise in identifying the skeletal remains of a young child. The case jogs hazy half-buried memories—and a nagging dread that Jenna's ordeal hasn't ended.
Now other women are dying. And as the links between these brutal killings and Jenna's past becomes clear. She knows that this time, the madman will leave no survivors.

About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There were a few editing errors, which are very uncommon for this author's books, but they were all minor and didn't take away from the flow of the story.
I would highly suggest that you read this series in order, as it will give you a better understanding of the characters, and the dynamics between all of them.
I would definitely recommend this book, series, and outstanding author.
The dynamic of the two men that worked together in each homicide I thought was an interesting twist. The fact that each man had certain desires and how Billy played on their insecurities was brilliant and made for an intriguing read. There was so much going on in this book, from the discovery of the Lost Girl, to Jenna's backstory to the current murders. There never seemed to be a dull moment. My biggest disappointment, however, was not finding out what happened to Heather's parents or should I say murderers. She served such a big part in the story that I felt that not hearing how they were punished left the entire thing slightly unfinished. Great read though!
Jenna Thompson is a cop from Baltimore with a past. She’s in Nashville trying to find answers about her history. An accomplished sketch artist, she’s asked to consult when the bones of a young child are found in a park.
If you enjoy thrillers I recommend this series.
This book however fell short in many ways. It felt trite and lacking in intrigue, romance and depth. Add to it were all the inconsistencies and inaccuracies from the previous book in the series that other readers/reviewers have pointed out.
Georgia is blonde in the 1st book of the series. She’s now described as red haired (could have changed hair color, I suppose?)
KC was off visiting his son in the 1st book. According to this 2nd book in the series, he has no children.
The Morgan family home was inherited by all 4 Morgan children in book 1. In book 2, it’s said to be Deke’s and he gave it to his brother Rick.
Proofreading mistakes. For example: Jenna is eating at the pub with Rick. And the sentence incorrectly referenced “KC” enjoying the food.
The romance between Jenna and Rick seems unlikely and unbelievable. Jenna seemed cold and I found her very unlikable. I didn’t like how she slept with Mike and then just cut him off cold. Only to lust after Rick. Didn’t sit well with me.
The rift between Rick and his brother Alex was mentioned without any explanation in book 1 and early in this 2nd book. It made me feel like I had missed a book or a prequel. Then it’s explained in this book in a completely flat and anticlimactic way.
Overall, I tried to like this book. But was a very frustrating read. Could have been so much better.

Book should be free with all the errors. Surely experienced author should be better than this.
The stories move along just at the right pace for me.
Liking the characters. Getting to know them.
