ABOUT THE BOOK
From the bestselling author of the DI Bliss series comes an enthralling mystery thriller.
The truth can set you free – or bury you.
When FBI Agent Sydney Merlot returns to her home town in northern California to wind down her late father’s PI business, she soon finds herself on the wrong side of the aftermath of a high school shooting.
Sydney’s childhood friend – who is now county sheriff – plus the local PD, the mayor’s office, and most of the town’s inhabitants, are convinced the horror ended when the gunman was killed. Now they just want to be left alone to mourn. But Sydney has other ideas – and she is not alone.
While having to work through her own personal grief, Sydney is openly intimidated and receives anonymous threats. After discovering she is under surveillance, she begins to fear for her life. During her investigation she gains several allies, but as the days pass, Sydney doesn’t know who to trust, and which new friends might actually turn out to be foes…
OMG, this is one of my favourite books so far this year. Tony Forder has always been one of my go-to authors for a top read but wow, seriously this is a must-read. The author has moved to northern California for this story and brought in a female lead called Sydney Merlot, one very independent lady who currently works for the FBI.
The town she has returned to is where she grew up but she is there to tie up loose ends with her late father’s PI business. When she is approached by a ‘new’ client she cannot resist just a look into the tragedy that has made this man an outcast in his own town. Sydney is heading to tangle with some pretty hefty high ranking officials as well as old friends.
I simply adored Sydney, what a fabulous character but there were people that didn’t like that what they had put to rest, was now being dug back up. While the people she could count on seemed to diminish with every page as the chapters grow more intense as she probed and poked. I love a book that can physically turn off the world where I am, they are rare these days but this book was one of them.
Sydney is not a pen pusher, she is physical and knows which buttons to push on the arrogant but she doesn’t always know when to stop for her own good. Talk about grabbing a tiger by the tail there is one hell of a climax in this story. I was left speechless, yes I know hard to believe but I was. I can’t recommend this book enough. Top class!
I wish to thank Sarah Hardy of Book on the Bright Side Promotion and Publicity for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly
