Publisher's Summary

Josie presses her hands into the center of the drowned girl’s chest and pumps, counting off compressions. She takes in the girl’s beautiful face, her brown eyes glassy. The memory of a champion swimmer on the podium with her teammates - a red swim cap on, her head thrown back in laughter - a stark contrast to the cold, still body before her. Breathe. Just breathe.... 

The body of a young girl lying face down in a swimming pool - white tennis shoes still on her feet, chestnut hair fanned out like a halo - is the last thing Detective Josie Quinn expects to find on an early morning visit to see her brother before class at Denton University. But when she recognizes the girl’s face as she drags her limp body from the water, there’s only one question racing through Josie’s mind: How does a champion swimmer accidentally drown? 

Nysa Somers’ family is distraught. She was a model student, beloved daughter, and everybody’s friend. There’s no way she would do anything reckless enough to put her scholarship at risk, let alone her life. It’s up to Josie and her team to piece together what happened in the hours leading up to Nysa’s death, and that begins with finding her missing backpack. 

But the bag, discarded in the woods on the nearby campus, contains nothing more than empty food wrappers, Nysa’s phone, and a cryptic calendar entry telling her to be a mermaid

The next day, a terrible housefire envelops the nearby home of a retired fireman, nearly killing his two granddaughters. The last words the little girls heard him mutter before he set the blaze were, be a match.  

As the body count rises, it’s only Josie who can see the deadly pattern forming. Can she convince her team that the wrapper found in Nysa’s bag that everyone overlooked is the crucial link they’re missing? Not while her partner, Noah, is avoiding her calls and acting so coldly towards her. Josie knows she must go it alone if she’s going to stop this silent and calculated serial killer before any more precious lives are taken. 

But with the killer finally in her sights, Josie takes a deadly risk and finds herself hanging onto life by her fingernails. Can she trust her team to save her, and before it’s too late? 

A totally gripping crime thriller from an Amazon, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal best-selling author. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni, and Rachel Caine.  

Listeners love Lisa Regan: 

"A brilliant twist.... It had me well and truly hooked.... A fantastic read!! I was captivated by the storyline right from the very first page and I couldn’t put the book down until I’d finished it.... The story twisted and turned.... I faced so many ‘what the hell’ moments as the action just kept coming!! Happily, I have to say I didn’t guess who was responsible and loved how it all cleverly fell into place! Each book of the series just keeps getting better!" (Stardust Book Reviews, five stars)

Not Worth the time or credit !!!!

The story line is weak....the opening with a girl drowned in the pool goes on and on with no conclusion, the same with the grandfather who sets his house on fire.....why ?????.......and the cop who almost jumps off a roof ??????.......the premise that they all ingested "spiked brownies" .....how/why were they singled out ?????
Too much speculation....and what happened to Noah ????
Not a good listen .....

Riveting!

This is one of my favorite series and I eagerly wait for each new chapter in Josie Quinn‘s life! This book was really fascinating and intriguing with a villain unlike any from her prior novels. From the very first victim of a highly skilled swimmer found drowned in her clothes to several other bizarre incidents, I could not stop listening to this book because I was just so puzzled as to what had happened to the victims. And of course there are always interesting sidelines with the regular cast of characters! Highly recommend and cannot wait until the next episode! Lisa always leaves you wanting much more! I also really enjoy the narration by Kate Handford.

Not the best

Story moved to slow. Not a fan of this author or narrator. Maybe her other books are readable.

Just Wow!!

Just Wow!
Time to be a Mermaid....
Time to be a Match....
Made me second guess eating brownies while reading this book. I promise you, you will never guess who-dun-it!! Trying to figure out what Noah was being so secretive about just about killed me. Very emotional!! The cliff hanger at the end, (pun intended)! Just Wow! Crazy good, hard to put down. You absolutely need to read this book!!

Written by a 4th grader

Zzzzzzzzzz...sorry. I was thinking about this book and faded off to sleep. All this book is...get ready...is a detective talking to people. That's it. She interviews witnesses, speaks to coworkers, and if you're still awake, you might hear a minute or two from the killer. It's literally atrocious. There's no action, no suspense, no cha-cha, and nothing to.....Zzzzzzzzzzz. Whoops, sorry. Fell asleep again. If you like boring books narrated by a subpar performer, this is for you. I'm actually considering filing a lawsuit for wasting my time and almost boring me to death. If you want to make it a class action, let me know.

Nissan not Kneesan

Haven’t finished the book yet but as a Nissan owner the mispronunciation is making my ears angry. Story is good so far besides minus the mispronunciation of Nissan as Kneesan.

Another steady progression.

If you have read the previous books then you know what to expect. The steady progression and development of the characters flows on. The case is once again twisted and intricate.

Still interesting and entertaining enough for me to continue listening and/or reading the series.
