Publisher's Summary

An Amazon Charts bestseller.

Her own past could be a reporter’s biggest story in this twisting thriller about murder and family secrets by the New York Times bestselling author T.R. Ragan.

Plagued by traumatic childhood memories, crime reporter Sawyer Brooks still struggles to gain control of her rage, her paranoia, and her life. Now, after finally getting promoted at work, she is forced to return home and face her past.

River Rock is where she’d been abandoned by her two older sisters to suffer alone, and in silence, the unspeakable abuses of her family. It’s also where Sawyer’s best friend disappeared and two teenage girls were murdered. Three cold cases dead and buried with the rest of the town’s secrets.

When another girl is slain in a familiar grisly fashion, Sawyer is determined to put an end to the crimes. Pulled back into the horrors of her family history, Sawyer must reconcile with her estranged sisters, who both have shattering memories of their own. As Sawyer’s investigation leads to River Rock’s darkest corners, what will prove more dangerous - what she knows of the past or what she has yet to discover?

couldn't stop listening

The story reminded me of Sharp Objects. I really enjoyed the pace and the twisting together of different story lines and characters.

Count on TR Ragan for consistently solid mysteries

If you’re a fan of T R Ragan then you’re familiar with her formula for writing a story. 1. There is a common atrocious issue. 2. The issue is not being dealt with properly by society or law enforcement. 3. A group of wronged individuals set an agreeable goal to take care of the problem. 4. Everyone has a nickname. There is always a good story with lots of tension. Often there are multiple plots (as in this book), there are also two locations. The characters are fleshed out and although some have been brutalized they never appear as victims. Only slightly broken. Jennica Damon does an excellent job narrating. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. If you found this review helpful please indicate so. Thank you.

Intriguing

Good book. Keeps you intrigued and hanging on. I just wished there were not so many F bombs used in it. i don't see how that adds anything to the book.

Wow!

Like many other reviews note, this book is definitely a trigger for someone who’s been sexually assaulted, but I actually enjoyed it. Honestly, being someone who’s experiences sexual assault, I can appreciate stories of revenge, and this was a great one.

Not for me..

I've read 8 or 9 of Ms. Ragan's books and I thought they were fabulous, not just the story but Kate Rudd narrating. I didn't like this book at all. I didn't like the constant present-to-past, past-to-present without warning. And I didn't like Sawyer, or the Crew. I don't know if there was any sex but, according to my iPad, the F-bomb was used 37 times. As to the narration: There's nothing worse than a female narrator who has all the men sounding like a girl. Jeez, it's 2020, time to learn how to narrate. Shoulda' got Kate Rudd!

Far Fetched and Too Many Plots

NO SPOILERS! I usually love TR Reagan books but this one not so much. There were way too many characters and subplots to try and keep track. I also found a lot of the content pulled from other books she wrote. Lastly, it was really far fetched. Maybe book 2 will be better...

Some charm but over the top in many ways

I like the three sisters and their interactions and understand the repercussions from their abuse. The characters have some charm. But some things are just over the top. Like a suspect is arrested and it takes reporter Sawyer very little time to find a robust alibi for him. What, the police wouldn’t have checked this guy’s alibi? It’s just silly. Also (spoiler alert), you basically have three different serial killers in one story, like they’re a dime a dozen. And, they are all uncovered by our young, inexperienced, emotionally damaged, intrepid reporter, and in a matter of weeks. Just too much.

Secrets and Lies

This book is filled with so many secrets and lies with most all within one family. As the secrets are revealed 3 sisters each believing awful things about each other realise the main crux of the problems lie closer to home. With all this being said throw in murders and vigilantes then the mind boggles. A real twisted debacle but a real page turner. I don’t want to give anything away but definitely worth a listen
