An excellent read. Although a follow on from the gripper where the serial killer Jacob Ness dies, Flora Dane cannot let his evil legacy go. There are still too many bodies out there; families who still search in hope that their daughters may still turn up. When the bones of a young woman’s body are found outside a small southern town deep in the wooded mountains of Georgia, connections are eventually made to Jacob Ness that may lead to many more of his victims.
Special Agent Kimberly Quincy, no stranger to Ness, is tasked with looking into the matter.
Kimberly takes Ness’ last victim, the only survivor, Flora, with her, along with her computer geek companion, Keith Edgar, and well as Boston Detective Sergeant D.D. Warren. The search of the crime scene shockingly reveals more bodies.
Strangely, the small town tries to make things as difficult as it can for the team. Can it just be adverse to the negative publicity? Or does the mayor know more than he’s saying?
Get done what you need to, now, before lifting the cover, because you are going nowhere until the last page. And the last convoluted twist.
