Someone wants to silence the Parker family for good. Can Amanda catch them before the little girl she’s desperate to protect pays the price?

It’s 4 a.m. when her mom shakes her awake. “Get up baby, we’re going to play hide and seek.” The little girl presses back into the dark space, holding her breath as she hears the shots ring out. She knows she’s next…

When the bodies of a local family are discovered on a quiet street in the small town of Dumfries, Virginia, Detective Amanda Steele takes charge of the case. Brett and Angela Parker were shot three times each, leaving no hope of survival, and their tidy suburban home has been ransacked. But there is no sign of their beloved six-year-old, Zoe.

Zoe is the same age that Amanda’s daughter was when she died, and Amanda can’t bear the thought of another little girl in danger. She’s organizing a search for the child when she notices something strange about the ottoman at the foot of the Parkers’ bed. She opens it to find Zoe, mute and traumatized, but alive.

With Zoe completely uncommunicative, Amanda must find another way to untangle what destroyed this seemingly perfect family.

It’s clear that the killer is searching for something the Parkers had, and until she has this monster behind bars, Amanda fears that he may return for Zoe.

When she learns that Brett Parker cut short the family’s recent lakeside vacation, she wonders why. What happened at that lake house, and did it ultimately get them killed?

Amanda heads out to Lake Chesdin on the feeling it might be key to the case, and when she finds a cell phone in the murky waters next to the Parker cabin, she knows she’s made a breakthrough. But then terrible news reaches her from Dumfries; Zoe has been taken from her school playground.

Someone wants to silence the Parker family for good, can Amanda catch them before the little girl she’s desperate to protect pays the price?

Review by Joanie:

Detective Amanda Steele’s mother is on trial for murder.

If that wasn’t enough, she lands a double murder case, and the victim’s six-year-old daughter, Zoe is a witness.

Amanda also finds out a secret her parents kept from the family for over twenty-five years..

Trying to solve the double murder, deal with the trial, and keep Zoe safe is a lot to deal with, while also dealing with the feelings from the accident six years ago that changed Amada’s life keep surfacing.

Can Amanda deal with it all and also close down the child sex trafficking ring that is operating in the area.
