“Gabriel Thane is the sheriff and lifetime resident of Carin County Illinois, committed to upholding the law and keeping the residents safe. Lieutenant Evie Blackwell is a State Police Detective skilled at investigations. She launches a new task force to reexamine unsolved crimes across the state. She begins work with the sheriff’s department on a few of its most troubling missing-persons cases, a deputy, his wife and eleven-year old son’s disappearance, and in an unrelated case involving a six-year-old girl abducted from a hotel. As she examines old evidence, she finds a connection to a third cold case.” ~a summary from CBD
This was an amazing “cold case” book that kept me riveted to the end. With my favorite setting – small town America – and a country yet intelligent Sheriff this story kept me fascinated until the end.
With Evie Blackwell as the main character, the story wove around her launching a task force into several unsolved crimes. She works together with the local sheriff’s department to find a riveting conclusion to a cold case. As she works through the lack of evidence in two unsolved cases she begins to see a third.
Dee Henderson is a master story teller. I read this book until I could hold it no longer. I would have kept reading it through the night if my eyes could have handled it! This book is considered a Christian Fiction and does include the main character’s faith and their challenging one another to live strong for Christ.
