Publisher's Summary

Evie Blackwell loves her life as an Illinois state police detective...mostly. She's very skilled at investigations and has steadily moved up through the ranks. She would like to find Mr. Right, but she has a hard time imagining how marriage could work, considering the demands of her job.
Gabriel Thane is a lifetime resident of Carin County and now its sheriff, a job he loves. Gabe is committed to upholding the law and cares deeply for the residents he's sworn to protect. He, too, would like to find a lifetime companion, a marriage like his parents have.
When Evie arrives in Carin, Illinois, it's to help launch a new task force dedicated to reexamining unsolved crimes across the state. Spearheading this trial run, Evie will work with the sheriff's department on a couple of its most troubling missing-person cases. As she reexamines old evidence to pull out a few tenuous new leads, she unearths a surprising connection...possibly to a third cold case.
Evie's determined to solve the cases before she leaves Carin County, and Sheriff Thane, along with his family, will be key to those answers.

Excellent Narration! Enjoyed ~ Thoroughly.

It was a very nicely written book, like all the others I've read by Dee Henderson. It's not filled with sex & gore which is a great break from most of the books I listen to. Real people doing real life things but with integrity & dignity. I lead a very simple life but I know behind the scenes of my ordinary existence there are crimes and the people that solve them, putting themselves in harms way. every day. and I like listening to their stories.

Didn't want it to end

This book was well written, suspenseful and I kept me up late to see if I could figure out the twists and turns. The narrator did an amazing job and hopefully this is the first of many more in a series. Well worth your credit

Good story but....

Unfortunately the overly sincere voice of the narrator and the overly insightful characters threatened to overwhelm the good story and mystery of this book. I enjoyed it but I had to engage a "filter" to keep from being annoyed by the these issues. If you like Dee Henderson, worth a listen - just a note of caution!
