Detective Josie Quinn's life is a complete mess: she's been suspended from the police force for using excessive force, her husband, who's also on Denton's police force, cheated on her but won't sign their divorce papers, her new boyfriend wants to marry her, a TV reporter won't stop hounding her, and she doesn't know what to do with all the free time she's got on her hands.
What she really wants to do is help find Isabelle Coleman, a teen who's gone missing. When another girl who's been missing for over a year unexpectedly turns up, Josie thinks the two cases are connected. But she's been forbidden from investigating either one. Only it's not in her nature to just stand by and watch, even if getting involved means jeopardizing her career. Or even her life. Because there's something going on in Denton, something dark and dangerous.
There's a lot to like about this one: a well-developed, complicated main character, good pacing, unexpected twists and turns, a chilling mystery, and a suspenseful ending. This is the first book in Regan's Detective Josie Quinn mystery series, and it's an excellent read. I really enjoyed it. And I'm looking forward to reading the other books that follow. Here's hoping they're all as good as this one.
