Detective Kerri Devlin’s life revolves around two things–her job as a homicide detective, and her young daughter. But when she gets the call to come to pick up a shipment from a West Virginia judge, she shows up to what will be her last assignment with a bag over her head. A man has been shot dead in his home and his wife is missing.
The body of local businessman John Kestler has been found, and he’s been forced to take a leave of absence from the police department in order to help his wife, who has developed aphasia. Their daughter, who is also suffering an illness and can’t communicate with them either, is missing, and when the detective finds foul play involved in both cases, she is recruited by her boss to return in full time duty to “investigate.”
In this gripping police thriller, a prestigious professor becomes the victim of a brutal killing. But no one saw a thing—not until Detective Kerri Devlin steps into their house and uncovers a shocking secret in their mostly empty bedroom. While she waits for her fellow officers to find the professor’s body, more bodies appear—nosy detectives who take too long to die, conveniently shot by the same gun used to murder their colleagues. And then there is the woman who vanished just before her husband’s murder.
Things look simple when you know the victims: a middle-aged couple found dead in their home. It’s a classic case, you can count on two hands how many hours they spent together. But it quickly becomes clear that what worked before won’t work now. When Detective Kerri Devlin arrives at the scene, she sees signs that everything isn’t what it seems — as she fights to uncover clues amid the chaos and grief before her new partner puts her right back in the middle of things.
