Forensic investigator Theresa MacLean takes on the worst
kind of murder case—one without clues—in this second novel in a hot new series
from Lisa Black.
Eight months ago, forensic investigator Theresa MacLean lost
her fiancé in a bank robbery gone wrong, and she’s had trouble concentrating on
her work ever since. But now a particularly difficult case may just be what she
needs to regain her focus by demanding all her skill, intelligence, and
Jillian Perry has been found dead in the woods, leaving
behind a husband of three weeks and a young daughter. The police can’t
determine how she died—her body shows no visible marks, and the autopsy reveals
nothing suspicious—and the leading theory is that she purposely wandered into
the forest and succumbed to the freezing weather. But something doesn’t feel
right to Theresa, and she can’t let it go.
To complicate matters, a former boyfriend of Jillian’s unexpectedly
petitions for custody of the daughter. Obsessed with Jillian, he also suspects
foul play in Jillian’s death, and now he and Theresa believe Jillian’s daughter
may be in danger of meeting a similar fate. With a child’s life at stake,
Theresa must search for evidence of murder—evidence that doesn’t seem to
exist—before it’s too late. Download and start listening now!
