A heavy rainstorm loosened the ground around the underside of a bridge and revealed a grisly burial site. There lay the remains of what turns out to be a family no one knew was missing. FBI Special Agent Mercy Kilpatrick is stunned not only about the discovery but because it is reminiscent of a similar crime that happened to two families twenty years ago. The man accused of those crimes is still in jail, making this even more perplexing.
These were awful crimes where entire families, including small children, were slaughtered in their homes. The investigation was tough as the clues were slim, challenging Mercy and other agents and local law enforcement, including Police Chief Truman Daly, Mercy’s boyfriend. I was immediately caught up in the case and really enjoyed the police procedurals up until a stunning event that distracted me beyond reason. I won’t divulge the details because you should have the same experience I did…not see it coming. It made the story even more exciting, adding an extremely high level of tension and nervousness that kept me on edge.
I couldn’t stop listening to this story, needing to see resolution so I could relax and ease my fears about characters I’ve come to treasure. The narrator delivered another exceptional performance, capturing all the emotion of the story, both in the moments of excitement and in the characters who were undergoing stress. I wasn’t able to figure out the the mystery of the killings much before it was revealed but I didn’t care because I was swept up into it all. This is such a great series and this a great story.
