‘I’m not a huge believer in coincidences where murder is concerned.’

Detective Cash Ryland’s brother is in prison for a crime Cash is sure he didn’t commit, but he needs cold case investigator Mae Vogel’s help to prove it. He mistreated her years ago, so he feels bad asking her and even worse if she discovers a secret he’s kept all his life. Mae is sure Cash is wrong about his brother, but then things begin to happen and both their lives are threatened. Someone is trying to keep this investigation from gaining momentum.

Patch has long been a favorite and is very adept at writing suspense, which is my favorite genre. She builds the action until the end, leaving the reader breathless with excitement. And she springs a huge surprise here. There were plenty of suspects, but I never once guessed the culprit! Totally blown away by the ending. Well done!

My thanks to the publisher and author for a copy of this book. The opinion here is my own.
