This was one of Milo's first cases as a rookie homicide cop: a vicious killing that he and his partner failed to solve because the department closed them down. Being forced to abandon the young victim tormented Milo. But his fears prevented him from pursuing the truth, and over the years he managed to forget.
Now someone has chosen to stir up the past. As Alex and Milo set out to uncover what really happened twenty years ago, their every move is being followed, and their lives are placed in jeopardy. While peeling back layer after layer of ugly secrets, they discover that the murder of one forgotten girl has chilling ramifications that extend far beyond the tragic loss of a single life.

I liked it
Granted, I am an Alex Delaware fan. I like Kellerman's earlier works better as he stayed in the area of child psychology, which is his forte. I did enjoy the murder book on audible. I made two attempts at reading it and did not succeed, however, as a listen, it was worth the time. As usual, Kellerman's characters were interesting and the story, while not his best, was engaging.

Cold Case; Personal History; a New Direction
The death of a retired police officer takes both Alex and Milo back to their beginnings. It's a story about privilege and the lack thereof and it's consequences. A young girl from a bad household is tortured and killed for sport by a group of rich boys. The cover-up has lasted for a lot of years as have the aftereffects, for Milo among others. As Milo and Alex conduct an unofficial unauthorized investigation the lingering shadows of the past affect them both; Alex is also dealing with the breakup of his long term relationship with Robin. As the story comes to a close and Alex deals with a life and death confrontation, Milo fights the power and wins a new role for himself in the hierarchy. An excellent example of the best of Alex Delaware.
