A shadowy predator with a murderous appetite for fire stalks a northern Minnesota town. When an elderly woman dies, the local police rule it an accident. Officer Erin Ericsson doesn’t think so. She thinks it was murder. The youngest officer on the department, Erin is determined to do whatever it takes to solve the crime. Even if it means defying her superior officer. Allie has recently relocated from Canada to be with Erin. A city girl, Allie struggles to fit in to small town life, but she hides a secret. A secret that gives her nightmares. A secret she fears will tear her apart. Erin knows her well enough to suspect that Allie suppresses a gift. One with a connection to the killer she seeks. She must find a way to convince Allie to help her. Together they use their skill, and a bit of intuition, to unmask the culprit behind an escalating series of deadly crimes. Their search leads them through unforgiving back woods and face-to-face with evil.
This book is a GCLS awards finalist.
Erin is a small town cop in Minnesota. She doesn’t believe for a moment that an older woman’s death that occurred was an accident. Meanwhile, Erin’s partner Allie is being plagued by flashes of bad things to come. Soon enough the women find themselves wrapped up in a mystery where lines are blurred and not all is as it seems.
I hate to give less than stellar reviews but since I volunteered to review it I must honour my commitment. The plot in this book and the flow are prettygood and it is technically sound. The characters are decent. Some are lovable and some are more apt to be on the other extreme. For a debut book this book is really something. There are a few things I could not get past. Most of them revolve around minor, but important, secondary characters. I find that the inconsistencies still bother me. I was not thrilled with this book. It was alright, but what do I know since it’s up for two major awards so there has to be something said for that.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
