Cherrystone, Washington is generally a quiet place. But in the span of one week they are the victims of a horrible tornado that devastates part of the town as well as learn that there was a triple murder of a well-liked family. Only one family member of the dead family is missing, oldest son Nick, and single mother and cop Emily Kenyon is determined to find him. But when her daughter, Jenna, declares that she feels that there is no possible way that Nick could have committed the slaughter Emily cannot believe the steps that Jenna will take to back up Nick. As Jenna disappears with Nick to who knows where, Emily must piece the puzzle together before a crazed serial killer kills them all.
This book was really amazing! I picked it during my overnight trip to Cincinnati because my Michael Palmer selection was horrendous. I was absolutely hooked!! I couldn’t get through it fast enough to find out what the ending would be! I highly recommend this book!!!!
