Raped and murdered three years prior, Juliet Trapp’s case is about to be reopened. Trapp’s neighbor, Geoffrey Howard, happens to remember that Juliet was with a biker from the Wild Blood motorcycle gang the night before she gets murdered. But can this new testimony be trusted? He and his pals had been drunk that night. In the initial interview, they hadn’t seen Juliet at all.
But then things heat up when Juliet’s father is found dead. He’d divorced her mother and dropped out of sight shortly after her murder. Now they’re working on two cases. It appears he’d been trying to seek his daughter’s murderer on his own.
Told in first person by Moriah Dru, this is the third book in the series but can be comfortably read as a standalone – except there’s a bit of a hanger at the end of this one. I loved Dru’s character, a truth seeker regardless of the consequences. Both Dru and Lake are very engaging and believable characters. The story starts a tad slow at the beginning, but action picks up as Moriah keeps pushing the boundaries and the danger level. There is a small bit of romance as Dru and Lake have a ‘thing’ going. But it is not detailed and doesn’t overpower the story at all. Rating: 4 out of 5.
