When a body is discovered in a field in Iowa, the police uncover fourteen additional corpses, some from twenty years ago, others from the recent past. The remains point to a serial killer with an MO the authorities have seen before–Ed Oliphant, a man who has been in prison for more than twenty years . . . and is FBI Special Agent Kaely Quinn’s father. After several failed attempts to discover if Ed has been training someone to be a copycat killer, the police turn to Kaely in St. Louis for help.

Kaely promised herself she would never step foot in her hometown or set eyes on her father again. She’s always refused to confront her past, but if she wants to prevent any more deaths, she must come face-to-face with the man she’s hated for years.

As more bodies are discovered, Kaely races against time and her own inner turmoil to uncover the killer. Will this most personal case yet cost Kaely her identity and perhaps even her life?

My thoughts:

I loved this series. It was by far my favorite series that I have read by Nancy. And I loved watching the story arc of Kaely through these three books. Nancy did a fabulous job of making that happen and in this book Kaely finally comes face to face with her greatest fears and greatest hopes.

Nancy also did a wonderful job of using some supernatural aspects of the Christian faith that many Christians don’t want to talk about, but are very real, but also being careful with how she handles it.

In this book we watch Noah and Kaely decide what direction to take in their relationship and learning to trust God more then their past wounds. A truly beautiful story that I couldn’t put down.
