Description:

Out in the field the tall stalks sway in the breeze, hiding a girl lying on the ground as if asleep. But she doesn’t stir when rain falls from the gray sky and lands on her soft cheeks. Her beautiful dark eyes stare up, unseeing, as her blood mingles with the rich brown earth.

When a member of Detective Casey White’s team turns up at her door begging for help, Casey races to find the broken body of twenty-year-old Charlie Robson abandoned in a sunflower field. Yellow petals and broken stalks scatter the ground—and Casey immediately recognizes the red markings all over Charlie’s body as arrow wounds. Heartbroken, Casey vows to find the monster who would hunt Charlie down like this.

Interviewing Charlie’s distraught mother, Casey’s blood turns to ice when she learns about a tight knit group of Charlie’s best friends who once called themselves The Sunflower Girls. They met in archery club and have drifted apart since high school. Casey knows the killer is sending a message with arrows… could the other girls be next?

But as Casey instructs her colleagues to track down the five remaining friends, another girl’s body is found, shot with arrows in her own home. Clutched in her hand is a broken sunflower petal. Turning the house upside down Casey finds a bone-chilling, one-word note: Guilty.

Someone is picking off The Sunflower Girls one by one. But why? Interviewing the four remaining girls, Casey is certain they are hiding a dark secret that stretches back to their school days. Trusting no-one, Casey will have to risk everything to track down a deadly killer… but with her own team keeping secrets too, could the real danger be much closer to home?

An unbelievably twisty rollercoaster ride that will have fans of Robert Dugoni, Kendra Elliot and Lisa Regan totally hooked until the last explosive page!

My Review

I am not sure I have read any of this series, but I will definitely be looking all the books up now.  It fills you in with everything you need to know about the previous books in the series and I love Casey’s backstory.  Her daughter, Jerico and her upcoming move make for an interesting personal life to balance with the case.  The setting of the outer banks was also great.  It’s one of my favorite places to vacation.

The team worked relentlessly to track down the killer.  What started as one murder, turned into two with the idea there could be more.  Told from Casey’s POV, the reader knows all she does as she is working the crime.  The book moved at a quick pace and I did not want to put it down.

I highly recommend this read.  It’s the best crime book I’ve read this year.  It is on par with Lisa Regan and Angela Marsons’ series.
