Camille Grisham was once a decorated field agent with the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit. Her job was to solve the country's most complex and violent crimes, often with little more than a textbook profile of the perpetrator to go on. No one did it better. But after her partner's death at the hands of a sadistic mass murderer, she has become a broken shell of her former self.
Forced to leave the Bureau under the weight of guilt, Camille returns to her hometown of Denver, hopeful that the presence of family and friends can heal the wounds that time could not. Unfortunately, a change in scenery does not bring about a change in fortune. Less than 24 hours after her arrival home, Camille is left to deal with yet another tragic loss - the brutal murder of her best friend in an apparent home invasion.
For local police, the case is open and shut. For Camille it is anything but.
Desperate for answers, she becomes an unwitting participant in an investigation that winds through the darkest corridors of wealth, power, and political corruption. All the while a killer waits patiently in the shadows, watching Camille's every move.
With the help of a young homicide detective whose doubts about her department's case increase by the second, Camille must race to uncover the true motives behind her friend's murder, even though she knows that doing so will put her on an inevitable collision course with a past that she desperately wants to leave behind.

Diane captures essence of John's story!
I loved the print version and felt the audio version brought the story to the next level!
Throughout the story the details were so well written and the suspense kept me on my toes until the last page.
Her voice brings light to the well written characters
this book made me think about possible outcomes of the twists and turns. I dont usually like surprises but this book kept me guessing, intrigued and connected. I wanted to see it to the end!
I have been a fan of John Hardy Bell's writing since this book was released in hard copy. I have read his other stories and the new story by his pen name E.M. Parker. He is a talent and I look forward to seeing what he releases next. His plots, details and execution of story telling is exceptional.

The book was very well written and the story overall was very enjoyable, but the narrator's versatility really brought it to life. Her characterizations were amazing. Even the male characters were believable.
The story was well-paced with just enough character development to make me care.
