All it took was one small item on the regional news for Kimberly Guyver and Rachel Golinski to know that their old life was catching up with them. They wondered how they'd been naive enough to htink it wouldn't. They hoped they still had a chance to leave it behind--just one more time--but within hours, Rachel's home is burning and Kimberly's young son, Riley, is missing.

DC Gary Goodhew begins to sift through their lives, and starts to uncover an unsettling picture of deceit, murder and accelerating danger. Kimberly seems distraught but also defensive and uncooperative. Is it fear and mistrust of the police that are putting her son at risk, or darker motivations?

With Riley's life in peril, Goodhew needs Kimberly to make choices, but she has to understand that the one thing she cannot afford is another mistake.

This author is wordy. However, the reader who stays with the author until past p. 100 will be rewarded with a page turning story. Perhaps the motivations weren't clearfully explained to me at the end, but, no matter, the action and mounting suspense was worth the time reading this second installment of the Goodhew detective series.

I thought this was a good solid read. I intend to read all of this author's work. No complaints from me.

Not as good as Cambridge Blue. The book lacks focus as Bruce tries to give the characters equal time in the spotlight. What actually happens is that no one gets much attention.

Bruce has lots of potential though she lacks the writing chops of more experienced writers.

It was ok. I have asked for the first in the series to see if it is any better.
