This book is told from two perspectives which I'm fine with because there was no confusion at all like there might be with a certain trilogy that shall remain nameless. Even though Casey and Dylan never really have a real meeting between the two they do have Brent the poor murdered guy in common along with some issues. He suffers from PTSD and she likely does too but it is diagnosed. I like how it was incorporated into the story. I don't know if I'm being paranoid but I think I might have it too since I was really able to relate to him and to Casey for that matter.
I do like reading suspense thrillers but I don't dive into this genre that much so I can only really think of a few authors. I'm glad that I'm able to add another author to that little list. Casey goes on the run after she finds her friend Brent dead after she asked him to search into her father's suicide. She's scared but pretty tough since she manages to get away. I would be totally freaked out and would totally be caught within minutes. I really enjoyed the friendship she struck up with Miss Lucy that led her to a town that led to her making a decision that could land her in a world of trouble but do so much good for other people. The ending was done in a way that it could continue but I would be satisfied with this ending although I have to admit I want more and of course I want a proper meeting between Casey and Dylan.
Dylan was recently discharged from the military. He was basically like a Gibbs. I'm not sure which branch of military. His PTSD is kinda getting in the way of him getting a job on the police force so he jumps at the chance to help find Casey since that would be a way of getting him the job he wants. Dylan is a really smart guy who soon realizes that things aren't quite as they seem. Like Casey he's forced to make a decision of his own. Even though the two main characters don't do much interacting I have to admit I could see them making a great team and possibly sparks would fly since they both have the same need to get justice for their friend.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thanks Litfuse and Net Galley.
