Casey Cox’s DNA is all over the crime scene. There’s no use talking to police; they’ve failed her abysmally before. She has to flee before she’s arrested . . . or worse. The truth doesn’t matter anymore.
But what is the truth? That’s the question haunting Dylan Roberts, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. PTSD has marked him damaged goods, but bringing Casey back can redeem him. Though the crime scene seems to tell the whole story, details of the murder aren’t adding up.
Casey Cox doesn’t fit the profile of a killer. But are Dylan’s skewed perceptions keeping him from being objective? If she isn’t guilty, why did she run?
Unraveling her past and the evidence that condemns her will take more time than he has, but as Dylan’s damaged soul intersects with hers, he is faced with two choices: the girl who occupies his every thought is a psychopathic killer . . . or a selfless hero. And the truth could be the most deadly weapon yet.
What can I say but I loved this book. I kept reading even when I should have gone to bed. This was entirely different from any book I have ever read. Without giving away any of the plot Dylan and Casey don’t meet until the very end of the book. It alternates between Casey and Dylan telling the story. The farther along into the story the more Dylan begins to suspect that Casey is innocent of the murder. But why is she running? Casey is good at giving the police and Dylan the slip and arranging for a new name. She just can’t seem to stop helping people.
If you like suspense, you will love this book and I recommend it. The only thing I didn’t care for is there was no real ending to the story. That's why I will give it four stars instead of five. I will be sure to read books two and three as I love all the book Terri Blackstock has written.
I was given this book by the publisher for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way.
