It’s been 23 years since Private Investigator Lance Kruger’s father, Victor, inexplicably disappeared. Rumors swirled over the years about what may have happened, from running away to escape his issues at home to things more ominous. It’s been a mystery that’s troubled Lance throughout his life as he was only a boy when his father left. Now, his car was located at the bottom of nearby Grey Lake with remains in the trunk. Lance’s worst fear seems to have come to fruition as he and fellow Private Investigator Lincoln Sharp, who was the police detective assigned to Victor’s case at the time, search for answers.
We finally get the resolution to Victor Kruger’s disappearance, which has hovered in the background since Lance was introduced to the Scarlet Falls series and featured here in this one. It didn’t disappoint and lived up to my expectations, actually surpassing them. There are a host of suspects served up, all viable and not gratuitous red herrings. But nothing prepared me for the outcome, which was a delicious twist.
This was an exciting story worthy of the gradual lead up over the last several books. I opted to listen to this series, one of my better decisions as Cris Dukeheart has developed into a great storyteller and keeps the tension high. I got hooked at the prologue and never let go. It’s an excellent story with the most thrilling climax. Be prepared to be surprised.
