Publisher's Summary

Nobody knows what happened to Sarah Cook. The beautiful blonde teenager disappeared 15 years ago, the same night her parents were brutally murdered in their suburban Ohio home. Her boyfriend, Brad Stockton - black and from the wrong side of the tracks - was convicted of the murders and is now on death row. Though he's maintained his innocence all along, the clock is running out. His execution is only weeks away when his devoted sister insists she spied Sarah at an area gas station. Willing to try anything, she hires PI Roxane Weary to look at the case and see if she can locate Sarah.
Brad might be in a bad way, but private investigator Roxane Weary isn't doing so hot herself. Still reeling from the recent death of her cop father in the line of duty, her main way of dealing with her grief has been working as little and drinking as much as possible. But Roxane finds herself drawn in to the story of Sarah's vanishing act, especially when she links the disappearance to one of her father's unsolved murder cases involving another teen girl. The stakes get higher as Roxane discovers that the two girls may not be the only blonde teenagers who've turned up missing or dead. As her investigation gets darker, Roxane will have to risk everything to find the truth. Lives depend on her cracking this case - hers included.

Just OK.

Any additional comments?

Despite the cover, this wasn't really a thriller, and was more of a standard whodunit mystery. The main character was your standard PI trope: female private investigator who lives alone, drinks too much, has a middling love life, struggles with money, has a frustrating family, daddy issues, etc. The mystery was pretty easy to see through early on. The book passed the time, but I wouldn't say it brought anything new to the table, and I'll forget all about it within a week.

Too slow moving for me

I felt like the book plot was too slow moving. It wasn't a bad storyline it just didn't come together as quick as a thriller usually does. That may be its intent since the main character is really bad at detective work. So if that's the case then good job.. I guess?
