When a duck hunter is shot dead, the murderer leaves a clue that the crime is linked to a cold case, the long-ago deaths of two animal activists. Then a horse trainer is killed and another clue is found. Cold Case Detective Rachael Schlank is drafted onto the taskforce investigating the crimes … along with a former colleague, whose dangerous temper has already made its mark on her career.
With more victims and an eye-for-an-eye, vigilante killer on the loose, the detectives must solve the case fast. In the process, Rachael comes to understand that morality, legality and the truth are not always aligned. And that she has some hard choices to make.
The book has been described as a mixture of Gillian Flynn’s ‘Gone Girl’ and Michael Connelly’s ‘Bosch’ series.
