From the Publisher

Hired to find a boy gene missing in Doraville, North Carolina, Harper Connelly and her brother Tolliver head there-only to discover that the boy was only one of several who had disappeared over the previous five years. All of them teenagers. All unlikely runaways.

All calling for Harper.

Harper soon finds them-eight victims, buried in the half-frozen ground, all come to an unspeakable end. Afterwards, what she most wants to do is collect her fee and get out of town ahead of the media storm that's soon to descend. But when she's attacked and prevented from leaving, she reluctantly becomes a part of the investigation as she learns more than she cares to about the dark mysteries and long-hidden secrets of Doraville-knowledge that makes her the next person likely to rest in an ice-cold grave.

My Opinion of the Book

I am still loving this series!!! Harris keeps her books suspenseful and makes the reader wonder all through the book. I think this is my favorite book yet in this series and I can't wait until the next one is released (whenever that may be!!!). The character progression in this book made me quite happy and I can't wait to see what will come next. After this book, though, I don't know how much more Harper can take! The fact that she had to take on a case with multiple deaths was quite the challenge for her. She's a strong gal though so I'm sure she'll keep at what she does best!
