Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of The Silent Girls comes another unforgettable thriller set in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, featuring Detective Sonja Test.
Even in a quiet Vermont town, unspeakable acts of the past can destroy the peace of the present.
In the remote, pastoral hamlet of Canaan, Vermont, a high-profile legal case shatters the town's sense of peace and community. Anger simmers. Fear and prejudice awaken. Old friends turn on each other. Violence threatens.
So when a young teenage girl is savagely murdered while babysitting at the house of the lead attorney in the case, Detective Sonja Test believes the girl's murder and the divisive case must be linked.
However, as the young detective digs deeper into her first murder case, she discovers sordid acts hidden for decades and learns that behind the town's idyllic facade of pristine snow lurks a capacity in some for great darkness and the betrayal of innocents. And Sonja Test, a mother of two, will do anything to protect the innocent.

Not a Good Story or Characters

I love to find a new series that I can get excited about for the future stories. Well, this wasn't it. In the end, the only character I cared about was the victim. The Detective, Sonja, was so "holier than thou" and unlikeable, I can't even understand why I listened until the end. The book summary stated "Sonja will do anything to protect the innocent". Well, I am not even convinced she is that good of a mother to her two children. Enough "judgement from me." I won't be listening to the sequel.

The narrator was not good with the male voices. Otherwise, I just feel neutral about the narration.
