About:

She’s following her instincts. They’re following her every move.

After her rescue of nearly fifty kidnapped children made international headlines, Amara Alvarez gets what she’s worked for: a transfer to San Antonio’s Homicide Division. But reality sets in quickly when her first case, the suspicious death of a teenager at a crowded local water park, plunges her life into chaos.

As the investigation moves forward, Amara finds herself stalked online by cybercriminals who uncover her personal life in frightening detail. With few leads, she’s forced to resort to unconventional methods to find the killer and prevent her first murder investigation from ending up in the cold case files.

Tom Threadgill is back with another riveting page-turner featuring the detective who is willing to put everything on the line to see justice served and lives protected.

My thoughts:

Another good one by Tom. I really enjoyed this first book in this series and this second one did not disappoint.

Amara is on the homicide team but she isn’t very well liked and trying to make her way in this new position. She starts off with a case that could have been dismissed but she senses there is more to it then meets the eyes.

She is dealing with more then her job. Stuff going on with her mom and a budding relationship with Starsky.

My irritation was in how Amara dismissed a lot of things that I thought could be clues, of course, that did build more tension, which probably was the point.

But overall, a very engaging read. If you like suspense you will enjoy this book.

About:

The case was tragic. But it was an accident. Right?

Three years ago, a collision between a fast-moving freight train and a school bus full of kids led to devastation and grief on an unimaginable scale. But a fresh clue leads San Antonio police detective Amara Alvarez to the unlikely conclusion that one of the children may still be alive. If she’s correct, everything law enforcement believes about the accident is a lie.

With time running out, Amara must convince others–and herself–that despite all evidence to the contrary, the boy is alive. And she will do everything in her power to bring him home.

A fresh voice in suspense, Tom Threadgill will have you questioning everything as you fly through the pages of this enthralling story.

My thoughts and giveaway:

Yes, please, give me more books like this!!! I have found a new author to follow. This is a different story, in a way. There was not much focus on romance (or faith for that matter) and that was okay (typically I like a bit more). This story was well written and had so many layers to unfold.

I loved the humor thrown in by the characters, the jokes thrown back and forth.

The mystery of what happened to these children was highly engaging and motivating to read about.

I can’t wait to see what else Tom has out there for me to devour. If you enjoy a suspenseful read I am sure you will want to grab this book.
