They placed me in here and threw away the key. I look down at the gown they’ve put on me. I want my own clothes. I don’t know how long I’ve been here.
An elderly woman is found murdered in her own home, and Detective Lottie Parker and her partner Detective Boyd are called in to investigate. When they discover that the victim’s daughter is missing as well, they start to fear for the safety of the whole family…
Two days later as a nearby house is set on fire and with the body count rising, Lottie and her team begin to unpick a web of secrets and lies, as the murders seem to link back to a case investigated by Lottie’s father before he took his own life.
With little knowledge of what really happened to her father, Lottie knows this is a case that could give her some answers. But how much does she want to know? And how far is Lottie prepared to dig to uncover the truth?
This is the third book in the series with DI Parker. Lottie. Lottie has more issues than Vogue. With three kids and one grandson at home and Lottie working crazy cop hours and her husband dead, drinking and popping pills is just one of the many things in her life she is trying to get under control. And she is trying.
When she and Boyd catch this case nothing about it makes sense. There are so many twists and turns and What?? moments in this one I’m surprised I didn’t get whiplash!
Once I started this one I had to finish it. I had to find out if we are finally going to get to see Lottie with her head on straight, the truth about her father’s death, maybe a little romance along the way. And I was not disappointed. Shocked? Oh yes!
This one will keep you on the edge and trying to figure out who is a killer and who is just plain crazy. And as it goes in life, secrets kept always come to light and Lottie may not want to know some of these secrets.
