Former homicide detective Nicole Foster has hit rock bottom. Driven off the force by her treacherous partner and lover, she’s flat broke and struggling with a gambling addiction. All Nicole has left is the dream of a warm bed at a homeless shelter and the haunting memories of three-year-old Kelsey Chase—whose murder case ended her career.

As Nicole obsesses over the old facts, she realizes everything about that case felt off: a disinterested mom, a suicidal pedophile, and too many questions left unanswered. When the little girl’s grieving father begs Nicole for help, she’s drawn back into the investigation…and given one shot at redemption.

But the deeper Nicole digs, the more evil she uncovers, including betrayals that hit painfully close to home. Will a shocking discovery be the key to finally getting justice for Kelsey and resurrecting her own life?

Olsen, a Seattle native, lives in Olalla, Washington with his wife, twin daughters, three chickens, Milo (an obedience school dropout cocker spaniel) and Suri (a mini dachshund so spoiled she wears a sweater).

Wow.... I was not expecting that at all!! This was such a bone chilling story. The twists kept coming. Just when I thought I knew what was happening, another twist was thrown into the mix. 
I never fully knew what was going on, but I think that's what kept my attention. 
I couldn't put this book down. I had to find out what was going on.
I'm pretty sure there were a couple of nights where it was all I dreamed about.
This story has stayed with me and makes me really want to read more from Gregg Olsen.
I definitely recommend reading this story!
