Joey McCarthy is stabbed to death in a parking lot in a random act of violence. Shortly afterward, Charlotte Stone's terminally ill mother dies and then, within weeks, two of her teenage friends commit suicide. With her home life disintegrating and both her father and brother racing toward self-destruction, Charlotte realizes that her own personal nightmare is just beginning. When Gary Goodhew, a lovable, warm-hearted detective, finds the body of another suicide victim, he is forced to recall some deeply buried memories of an investigation that had a profound effect on him—memories that lead him to Charlotte Stone. Working together, they begin to wonder whether all these tragedies are somehow linked. And if they are, who will be the next victim?

Another good read from Alison Bruce. She starts her books in the middle of the story dealing with one of her characters. Readers don't realize these pages are a backstory for the events to follow. So stick with the reading even though nothing seems to make sense. All will seem clear at the end of the story. DC Goodhew remains an interesting detective.

I hope Alison Bruce hurries up and writes another in this series. Very good read.
