About the book
Turning the key in the lock of the lakeside cabin, Ally puts her finger to her lips as her boyfriend laughs softly. Tonight it’s just the two of them. Later that night their broken bodies lie in the grass by the boathouse, the moonlight reflected in their unseeing eyes…
When a young couple are found murdered by a remote holiday cabin, Agent Tori Hunter races to the scene: and is devastated to recognize Ally Mannion, a close friend’s daughter, and her boyfriend Reed. Who would want to snatch away their innocent lives?
The first thing Tori notices is a boat drifting out on the lake. Did someone witness the attack? But with the boat offering up no clues, interviewing Ally’s heartbroken family Tori soon realizes that Ally and Reed broke in to the cabin. Were they hiding something? Or did the young couple see something they shouldn’t?
Then the body of a missing person from fourteen years ago is found at the bottom of another lake. He too was murdered. Convinced the two cases are linked, Tori uncovers a series of terrible crimes at the heart of the local community stretching back years: even to her own school days.
To catch the killer Tori will need to question everything about people she’s known her whole life. But how far will she have to go, before they strike again?
This completely gripping and addictive crime thriller will have you up all night racing through the pages. Fans of Mary Stone, Gregg Olsen and Melinda Leigh won’t be able to put down Their Lost Souls.
Wow, I don’t have any kids but I cannot imagine losing a child. And for the police that have to investigate these tragedies… As always with this author, I could not put this one down. I love the Tori and Braddock and getting to see what they and the team are up to. The author is so good at laying out the plot of multiple crimes and then weaving the pieces together. So complex and layered yet no string is left hanging.
There were a lot of twists and turns in this game of cat and mouse. I loved watching as both sides worked to have the upper hand. It unwinds at a great pace with lots of action. I enjoyed the team dynamic in solving the case. How hard they work and the process of it. And how their personal lives evolve from book to book. Over the span, it’s almost like these characters are people I actually know.
While the case and the book work as stand alones, the series is great and worth reading them all.
