Casey Cox’s DNA is all over the crime scene. There’s no use talking to police; they have failed her abysmally before. She has to flee before she’s arrested . . . or worse. The truth doesn’t matter anymore.
But what is the truth? That’s the question haunting Dylan Roberts, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. PTSD has marked him damaged goods, but bringing Casey back can redeem him. Though the crime scene seems to tell the whole story, details of the murder aren’t adding up. Casey Cox doesn’t fit the profile of a killer. But are Dylan’s skewed perceptions keeping him from being objective? If she isn’t guilty, why did she run?
Unraveling her past and the evidence that condemns her will take more time than he has, but as Dylan’s damaged soul intersects with hers, he is faced with two choices. The girl who occupies his every thought is a psychopathic killer . . . or a selfless hero. And the truth could be the most deadly weapon yet.
My thoughts: I love a good mystery, and this one was just that! The story starts off at a fast pace, with Casey on the run for a crime the reader doesn't totally comprehend. As she outsmarts the cops and the story of how her best friend wound up dead comes out, the reader is sucked in all the more. While this book is the first in a series and Casey's story is not concluded (which, is really just cruel!), I like that some loose ends are tied together by the end. Just enough to satisfy and leave me wishing the next book would just be out already.;)
If you are looking for an interesting mystery, then I highly recommend this one!
I received this book from Lit Fuse in exchange for my honest review.
