They’re hunting a killer so silent, so invisible, that his unspeakable crimes are the only proof he exists. A car submerged in a remote pond. The bodies of two girls strapped into their seats. The mystery of their mother, vanished without a trace, leads Gwen Proctor and Kezia Claremont into dangerous territory. On the surface, Gwen’s life is good—two children approaching adulthood, a committed partner, and a harrowing past dead and gone. But that past is attracting the attention of someone invisible…and unstoppable. Trouble’s just beginning. So is the body count in this backwoods Tennessee town. As threats mount and Gwen’s hunted by an enemy who pulls all the strings, Kezia has her back. But working to solve these vicious and unreasonable crimes will expose them both to a killer they can’t for the life of them see coming.
I’ve been a fan of this series since it started, and I’ve followed along eagerly with each new installment. I’m sad this will be the last Stillhouse Lake book, as this series was truly one of the darkest thrillers I’ve ever read. I love it, and like I said, I’m sad it’ll be over.
The strong female relationships shine in this book once again, and even take centre stage towards the end of the book. I appreciated the throwbacks to the original two books in the series, as books three and four took a bit of a turn towards something different, and it was great to see the series return to its roots.
Rachel Caine will be deeply missed, but I thank her for delivering a great finale to one of my favourite thriller series!
