Kaiser must find the killer before its too late. Is it Calvin James who escaped during his jail sentence? Could Georgina be involved? Or is it someone else entirely?

What did I think?
This book was fantastic and drew me in right away. It’s told in Georgina’s (or Geo’s) perspective but does go back and forth from past to present time. Its not hard to follow though. It kept me guessing the whole time and I didn’t see the final twist coming. I also think the storyline hasn’t been done before. Jennifer Hillier is now one of my new favorite authors. This is the second book of hers I have read and I loved it! Can’t wait for more of her books.
