Read my review of Last Girls Alive
When the bodies of eleven and twelve-year-old sisters, Tessa and Megan, are found at the bottom of a ravine—dressed in matching pastel summer outfits, their small bodies broken from the fall—Detective Katie Scott is called to one of the most shocking and heartbreaking crime scenes of her career.
Carefully picking through the fragile remains, Katie makes the first of many disturbing discoveries: the girls were not biological sisters. The youngest, Megan, is a DNA match to a kidnapping case years before. The tiny number burnt into her skin the mark of a terrifying killer intent on keeping count of his collection.Her PTSD from the army triggered, Katie is left reeling as she maps other missing children in the local area.
Has this twisted soul found a way to stay nearby his victims? Could he be watching now as Katie hits one dead end after another?
A wild storm building, matching a fiber found during the autopsy to a nearby boatyard is the break Katie needs. But when another girl goes missing, just as lightning strikes and the power goes out, Katie only has her instincts, her team and her service dog to rely on.
As time runs out for Katie to finds the stolen child alive, who will become the next number on this monster’s deadly list?

This was really good, dark and twisted, with a town full of secrets at the heart of the mystery. Detective Katie Scott and her partner Deputy McGaven are asked to help a small police department to solve the disappearance and murder of two young girls; but there seems to be much more going on.
I really enjoyed this book, it’s so well plotted and constructed, the way it all unravels is pleasing and cleverly done.
