About the book:

     Dee Henderson pens another compelling cold case mystery.

     Evie Blackwell’s reputation as a top investigator for the Illinois State Police has landed her an appointment to the governor’s new Missing Persons Task Force. This elite investigative team is launched with plenty of public fanfare. The governor has made this initiative a high priority, so they will have to produce results—and quickly.

     Evie and her new partner, David Marshal, are assigned to a pair of unrelated cases in suburban Chicago, and while both involve persons now missing for several years, the cases couldn’t be more different. While Evie opens old wounds in a close-knit neighborhood to find a missing college student, David searches for a private investigator working for a high-powered client.

     With a deep conviction that “justice for all” truly matters, Evie and David are unrelenting in their search for the truth. But Evie must also find answers to the questions that lie just beneath the surface in her personal life.

My review:

     Two intricately woven mysteries!

     I love the two main characters in this wonderful story. They are so well developed that I felt emotionally connected to them and the issues they were each dealing with in their personal lives. Their camaraderie as they worked their respective cases was incredible. I thoroughly enjoyed the fact that that they were able to discuss their belief in God and encourage each other in trusting Him.

     The mysteries had me guessing all the way through the book. I was fascinated by all of the detail as to how a cold case would be worked. It was fun to see that both David and Evie had their own way of looking at it and they were both very successful in their chosen careers.

     I have got to give this fantastic book a 5 star rating. I am definitely highly recommending it.
