The case Winter and Noah are investigating in this first book is a sad one involving the buried remains of children who were born with severe physical defects and then later murdered. They died years ago, which means finding any witnesses or evidence is challenging. But Winter suspects their deaths have something to do with the religious cult that used to live on a nearby farm. Proving it is another matter. Luckily, Winter as the help of her strange psychic gift, and the unwavering support of her partner.
I liked this mystery a lot. Winter's an interesting character, and I look forward to reading more about her and her unusual gift. I hope Noah's in the next book, too; he's good with Winter, he's cute, and his Texas drawl is endearing. And the ongoing threat of the Preacher that's hanging over Winter makes for some good added suspense. This book was published in 2019, but Stone has already written nine more books about FBI Agent Winter Black. Talk about starting out behind in a series! At least my library has all of them, so that's good. If they read as fast as this one did, I just might have a chance of catching up.
