Twenty-seven years after the deaths of Detective Abby Hart’s parents, she’s desperate to find the proof that will put the mastermind―the governor’s wife―behind bars. When she joins a newly formed task force and teams up with PI Luke Murphy, Abby is sent to San Luis Obispo to work the cold case of a murdered college student. Realizing their investigation will bring them near the town where Alyssa Rollins grew up, Abby decides to do a little digging of her own into the Triple Seven fire.
Luke is eager to help Abby close the books on a case they
both have personal stakes in. But as she uncovers long-held secrets,
Abby stumbles into an explosive situation, and Luke fears that her
obsession may prove deadly.
Abby became a police officer because of the murder of her parents when she was a child. That event shaped her adult life. She meets Luke in the first book in this series. Luke's uncle was murdered in the same fire that killed Abby's parents. So together they search for answers. Abby has almost become obsessed with trying to find answers. Luke is the voice of reason. Along with Woody, Abby's former police mentor, they keep her grounded.
This is the third book in Cold Case Justice series. It would be beneficial to read the first two books in this series. They first two books have an ending as they solve a crime in each book. This book solves a crime as well as wraps up the murders of Abby's parents and Luke's uncle.
I would recommend this book as well as the first two books in the series.
I was given this book for an honest review by the publisher. I was not compensated in any way.
