Small college town murder mystery makes up this latest in the Cold Justice series.
Since the big over arching plot of the previous books in the series was finally put the rest this time the story is centrally focused on a small college town in Upstate New York close to the Canadian border. Detective Erin Donovan is the most hated person in Forbes Pines as she arrested star quarterback for raping college girls which eventually led to his conviction and incarceration last year. Now after a long deserved vacation she returns to a double homicide that has her questioning did they arrest the right man or did he have an accomplice. Right away an FBI profiler shows up to help them and normally she would be very grateful for any help but the man they sent happens to be the man she had a one night stand with 3 years ago when she was training at Quantico and that night didn’t end well.
FBI Agent Darsh Singh has been on some tough cases lately when he is pulled to go to Forbes Pines to help with the murders and to also look into the previous rapes. He is not happy himself when he gets there and see that the lead detective is the woman who lied to him 3 years ago. Neither of them had been totally honest with the other that night but Darsh feels Erin’s deception was almost unforgivable even though he has not forgotten how it felt to have her in his arms.
Not as intense in the suspense as some of the previous books in the series but the bad guy did a good job a deceiving everyone including Darsh and Erin right up until the end. Their relationship also played a big part of the book and the ups and downs they went through with not only having to deal with the case but also their past.
