I received a free copy of this ebook from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.
This is the third in the series with DI Dani Stephens. Previous books detailed some pretty horrific events in her life that are lingering in this book, but they are referred to in enough detail that you can conceivably read this without reading the first two. Currently Dani works with a DS Easton. Her husband is still in the hospital recuperating from a vicious attack. The book opens with Dani and Easton being called to what on the surface appears to be a suicide but there are just enough oddities about it to raise doubts.
The case Dani and Easton is investigating leads them on a dark path that weaves through secret identities, missing people, human trafficking, torture, and multiple murders. Easton deals with ongoing personal issues with his sister and her children throughout the book. Dani continues to deal with the repercussions in her personal life from the events in book 2.
This is well written, twisting turning plot. There are quite a few pieces that weave together here to reach the final outcome. A great fast paced thriller.
