It delighted me that the series would continue after the closure of the first ARC. Gwen now works as a private investigator and is working a three-year-old case involving a missing young man. Problems and fallout from their trauma continue and Caine did a great job with it, particularly with Conner’s POV. This family seriously has zero luck and darkness or evil surrounds them.
Caine touched on a couple of headliner topics and the impact those had on her characters. It allowed the reader to identify; particularly when it came to PTSD.
The case was intense, steeped in realism, and kicked into high gear at about the fifty percent mark. Prepare yourself, because Caine knows just how to grab her reader/listener. I was hooked and lost sleep devouring this one. Triggers! Triggers Everywhere! There are plenty of triggers if your susceptible begin with caution.
I loved getting inside each of the characters’ heads and while Gwen is the main point of view, Conners and Sam’s slayed me. We get Lanny’s POV too and while powerful; it was the perspectives of the other three that were gut-wrenching.
