It was supposed to be a night of fun until a carnival ride malfunctions leaving several dead. Sheriff Piper Blackwell is called in to look at the ride and possible sabotage. But the more she start looking, the more bodies she starts finding. Spencer County has a small police force and it is stretched to its limits trying to find the murder/murderers. You jump right into the action as the ride goes crazy at the carnival and Piper to get to it and direct people away. It’s not a pretty scene and had me hooked from page one. I liked Piper. She left the military to return home to help her father with his chemotherapy. I love how she is not a push over, she is strong willed and a great main character. This is a great mystery that had me guessing until the end. It was great to revise Piper after reading The Dead of Night. I really need to go back and read the first book of this series, The Dead of Winter. This is a wonderfully engrossing read and one that I recommend checking out. I can’t wait to read more about Piper. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
