In this Wall Street Journal and Amazon Charts bestseller, there are no such things as little secrets…
Raised by preppers, survivalist and FBI agent Mercy Kilpatrick has a deep-rooted need for a safe place. Her getaway in the Cascade Foothills is her secret. But when skeletal remains are unearthed—those of a murdered man linked to a notorious heist—Mercy realizes she isn’t the only one with something to hide.
Thirty years ago, an armored-car robbery turned deadly. The mastermind was captured. Four conspirators vanished with a fortune. One of them, it appears, never made it out of the woods alive. For Mercy and her fiancé, Police Chief Truman Daly, their investigation opens old wounds in Eagle’s Nest that cut deeper than they imagined. Especially when a reckless tabloid reporter draws fresh blood. It’s clear to Mercy that somebody in this close-knit community is not who they seem to be.
Some are still shattered by the heist. Some still have reason to be afraid. But which one will kill again and again to hide three decades of secrets? To land this case, it’s up to Mercy to unmask a familiar stranger before someone else dies.
While this is the 5th book in the series it is one that stands on its own, and you don’t have to have read the previous books to fully enjoy this story. The book is a great ready, the main characters Mercy Kilpatrick and her fiancé Truman Daly are fun and so likable. A book filled with mystery and hidden secrets that are coming to the surface. So you are entertained and will want to keep reading this book until you finish the last page.
