Casey Cox was only 12 years old when she found her father dead from what the local police called a suicide. Casey and her mother have never believed that. Casey knows what she saw. When her friend Brent, a journalist starts digging, he hits gold but when Casey goes to his house she finds him dead.
She knows if she stays the police will arrest her. Her footprints in Brent’s blood are all over. She knows he was killed because someone found out what he was doing and what he knew. She can’t trust anyone in the police department, so she runs.
Meanwhile Brent’s family has asked his friend, Dylan, to investigate and find Casey. Dylan is a war veteran who is still trying to get a handle on his own PTSD and as he begins the hunt for Casey, he also begins the hunt for the truth. Even he doesn’t believe what the police are saying.
Along this journey, Casey meets some really great people. People who have been through hard times, bad times, and have found comfort and guidance through their faith in God.
This was the first book I have read by this author. It won’t be the last. Very well written and the characters were well rounded.
