Publisher's Summary

A fire ignites a whirlwind of action and accusation in a swamp town that hasn't seen excitement since the big lottery win 12 years ago. Little does reporter Chloe Keyes know that when she sniffs around for clues, she'll end up facing her own demons while unsettling the very foundation of her hometown.
Chloe starts her day by pulling a gun on two intruders - and things only go downhill from there. Driving to Boyd's General for her daily caffeine fix, she finds the place ablaze. When the flames die down, she uncovers evidence that points to a dire fate for her missing childhood friend, Hoop. He disappeared 12 years ago, on the same day his girlfriend was struck and killed by a car. The events have left a dark mark on Chloe.
Over the next two days, strange occurrences pile up: Chloe's neighbor is found floating and bloated in Black Swamp, the head of a cosmetics conglomerate is arrested by federal agents, phone records point to a dead girl making calls, and a handsome stranger mystifies everyone he encounters. Through it all, the promise of a spectacular magic show captivates the local residents.
Close calls with gators, crossbows, and armed felons lead to a startling conclusion, complete with illusion, chicanery, and the most divisive trick of all: cold, hard truth. Will Chloe's murky existence finally be clarified, or will she succumb to the demons that haunt her?

Great Book!!

This book by Anne McAneny was very well written. I loved all of the twists and turns this story had. Laura Jennings did a great performance and put so much into it. I loved the suspense and the imagery this story had. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. Before I listened to this book I didn't have a clue what the cover art had to do with the story, but I totally got the bicycle tire and snake after I started it. Love and adventure are two words that describe part of this book. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no cost by the author, publisher, and/or narrator. I will most definitely look for more books by both the author and narrator, and will listen to this one again.

Any additional comments?

This book had me hooked right from the beginning. Such a great murder mystery with a twist. The narrator did a great job performing this story and made you believe you were actually inside the story as was caused by amazing writing. Nothing makes me happier than to be able to crawl inside a book as I did this one. I look forward to the other 3 books in this series. Take a chance on this book and you won't regret it.
