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 attention.

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.

    " Lisa Black keeps you on edge with her storytelling. Absolutely loved this book and would definitely reccommend. "

    " I just couldn't get into it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristy | 1/27/2014

    " This book was better than her first, but I thought the plot would have been way more involved than it was. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 1/25/2014

    " This is the April pick for my book group. I really enjoyed especially because it was set in Cleveland, Ohio which is not far from me. It was a very fast read. You kind of knew who the killer was, but you just couldn't figure out how he did it. The ending was like something out of a television show; I don't know that she really could have pulled that off. This was the second in the series, so I may have to back track and read the first one. I recommend it for mystery lovers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kitty | 1/23/2014

    " Forensic investigator Theresa MacLean is still mourning her fiance who was killed 8 months ago in a bank robbery. She plods on with her job but lacks any special spark of interest. When Jillian Perry is missing (later found dead) she can't help but see the similarities between their lives. Jill's new husband seems a little off to Theresa, and she widens her usual job to include investigation. She's sure the husband is a bad actor, but needs to collect proof to satisfy herself. To further complicate things Jillian's daughter (but not the daughter of the husband)has an inheritance coming her way. If the husband can adopt the daughter, is the daughter in peril? Enjoy! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth Ferguson | 1/19/2014

    " It was interesting, wish the killer was not identified as early as they are, but here are still surprises as the story unfolds. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 1/16/2014

    " Another great story in the Tess MacLean series! I love the mystery! I also love the family dynamics! "

    " Boring....didn't like the heroine. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 1/13/2014

    " Well now, I just found an author I have yet to read... But then realized it was book 2 instead of 1... So I'm on the hunt for book 1 now... :) Loved this one though! Just loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 1/9/2014

    " I only give four stars because it took awhile for the book to get started. Once it did it was great. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ella | 1/3/2014

    " Not as good as her first novel. Theresa is not a very likable heroine. She's a wannabe cop, disobey authority, breaks protocol on a daily basis, and is nasty to her love interest. It's very hard to root for a heroine that is so unlikable and unrealistic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue | 12/31/2013

    " I did finish the book but really lost interest about 1/4 of the way in to it. Boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phyllis | 4/18/2013

    " The beginning of this book was really slow. hard for me to keep interested in it. About half way thru it got better and hard to put down and moved very quickly. Hope the next one is better "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Kay | 3/10/2013

    " I read the first book in this series but this one isn't as good. I know the heroine (a forensic investigator) watched her fiance die 8 months previously, but get over it already. The crime is interesting though. It involves the wonderful world of video games. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 1/1/2013

    " good, liked the Cleveland setting. Could feel her frustration without a defined mode of murder, interesting "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Avonna Kershey | 9/9/2012

    " Another great book by Lisa Black. Being a Clevelander my whole life, I cannot be more happy than when an author uses our home town. Yes, it is about murders and investigations, but she uses Cleveland well. Hope this series continues for a very long time! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michele | 2/12/2012

    " This book was not a good book. Unfortunately I had big hopes for it when I read the cover but unfortunately it just didn't grab my attention. I have read other good books from her, this was just not one of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 10/22/2011

    " I really like this author.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 8/23/2011

    " A good novel of suspense set in Cleveland, Ohio. The author does a great job of describing a bleak winter landscape and a cold blooded murderer. However, a forensic scientist is determined to find proof and prevent the death of another innocent victim, an infant child. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina Byrne | 8/16/2011

    " I enjoyed this quick read. Suspenseful, a real thriller. I didn't read the first book, but it was not necessary to get into this story. I lived in Cleveland for 16 years so the locale and landmarks were a tie in for me. I've already downloaded "Trail of Blood". "
