From the time I first started reading chapter books, the mystery genre became my favorite. I have to say after all of these years reading mysteries I am still not real good at figuring out the mystery. When I read the synopsis of this book I knew it was one I wanted to read. We have a very dysfunctional family. Mandy is the daughter of a police officer. Her mother and father’s marriage began to fall apart when Mandy’s best friend, her brother, also a police officer was killed. Her mother is convinced her son was pushed into this line of work by Mandy’s father. Now Mandy’s mom has gone missing. The father doesn’t seem worried because she often goes missing for short periods of time. This time however, they’ve found her car with traces of blood in it.
The author keeps you guessing as to who would have something against the mother. The story starts off very ominous. The tension is kept going from page one to the last page. The characters are very well developed. I have to say once again I was unable to figure it all out until the end. I loved this book and would definitely read more by her. I also loved the setting. I am very familiar with this area as I'm originally from Indiana. I lived in a small town south of Kokomo.
About the Author:

In doing so, she depicts societal struggles that pit those who understand humanity with those who are lost in a strange and dangerous world of their own making.
