This is the third Megan Carpenter book and the second in the series I’ve read. Megan is a no nonsense loner police detective in the Jefferson Sheriff’s Department. She’s running from her past. The latest murder she’s investigating is way to close to that hidden past.

This book made we wonder what I’d do if I really couldn’t trust anyone, not even my family. If I had a secret I was keeping from everyone, even my employer, boyfriend, friends. And the few people that knew my secret had turned on me. It’s an interesting thought as we go through the pandemic. I’m single and live alone. That connection with friends is hard, but I know they’re there as opposed to Megan, who feels like she has no one. But it’s nice to see that Megan is building some bonds with the Sheriff and Junior Deputy she is training.

I really enjoy the series. There is an interesting case in each book in the series. There is good character development in each book and in the series. The story in this book was deep in the back story of Megan, but I think there is enough background if you haven’t read the book. I’d recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery.
