Kirkus Reviews
A young woman who was severely traumatized by the murder of her parents must deal with the release of their killer. Between the time she was orphaned and the time she became a food critic at a local newspaper, Madison Young was raised by her grandmother and homicide detective Dexter Quinn, who acted as a surrogate father. Her past comes rushing back when her editor insists that she go to a murder scene. The murdered man was a paroled sex offender who was killed execution style. The only witness describes seeing an older woman who vanished. Haunted by the murder, Madison does some research that reveals a number of criminals, either never convicted or paroled early for heinous offenses, who have been murdered all over the country, often in the vicinity of witnesses who recalled seeing an older person nearby. When her parents' killer is paroled, Madison is so shocked that she ends up in the hospital in a coma. Recovering, she realizes that if she is ever to have a normal life she must face the fears that have kept her a prisoner since her parents' deaths. Madison goes to Dexter with her suspicion that there may be a group of vigilantes who are killing criminals they think deserve to die and her fear that her own grandmother may be involved. The premise of Hill's third (Beyond the Quiet, 2009, etc.) is certainly arresting, and the story holds your interest, even though some of the complications seem pretty unlikely.

    Enthralling read!

    Maddy Young, a food reporter in Yucaipa, California, is aiming to review a restaurant when she witnesses a murder. Turns out the murdered man was a no-good career criminal who had managed to elude justice for years and years. Maddy, who witnessed her own parents' murder, is traumatized.

    This fast-paced, fascinating book keeps the reader on his/her toes, and I have to admit to a feeling of moral ambiguity by the time it comes to an end. That's not to say all the loose ends aren't tied up, because they are. Read the book, and you'll know exactly what I mean. Wonderful read!
