Jam-packed suspense!

A seasoned crime reporter + Cold case mystery with a personal stake +a recent murder and an intriguing setting in Savannah!

Crime reporter Harper McClain will stop at nothing to find the killer behind these murders. Her mother’s unsolved murder 15 years ago echoes the circumstances of a recent crime scene and rocks Harper’s world. She becomes obsessed with solving the case. Could the murderer be the same person? How could she ignore the similarities of both crimes? The killer left no DNA, no evidence and no clues.

Harper will risk everything to go behind the scenes to try and bring justice to not only herself and her mother, but also another young girl who will be haunted by her mother’s murder just as Harper was many years before.

The tension builds as the mystery unfolds and Harper gets closer to learning more about the murders, but someone is watching!

I’m anxiously awaiting the next in this series and want more Harper.

Book Description…

A city of antebellum architecture, picturesque parks, and cobblestone streets, Savannah moves at a graceful pace. But for Harper McClain, the timeless beauty and culture that distinguishes her home’s Southern heritage vanishes during the dark and dangerous nights. She wouldn’t have it any other way. Not even finding her mother brutally murdered in their home when she was twelve has made her love Savannah any less.

Her mother’s killer was never found, and that unsolved murder left Harper with an obsession that drove her to become one of the best crime reporters in the state of Georgia. She spends her nights with the police, searching for criminals. Her latest investigation takes her to the scene of a homicide where the details are hauntingly familiar: a young girl being led from the scene by a detective, a female victim naked and stabbed multiple times in the kitchen, and no traces of any evidence pointing towards a suspect.

Harper has seen all of this before in her own life. The similarities between the murder of Marie Whitney and her own mother’s death lead her to believe they’re both victims of the same killer. At last, she has the chance to find the murderer who’s eluded justice for fifteen years and make sure another little girl isn’t forever haunted by a senseless act of violence―even if it puts Harper in the killer’s cross-hairs…

  1. Glad that you enjoyed this one. I like the sound of the premise and the idea that two crimes, 15 years apart could be linked. Will definitely check this one out if I get the change. Great review!
