Casey knows the truth.
But it won't set her free.
Casey Cox's DNA is all over the crime scene. There's no use talking to police; they have failed her abysmally before. She has to flee before she's arrested . . . or worse. The truth doesn't matter anymore.
But what is the truth? That's the question haunting Dylan Roberts, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. PTSD has marked him damaged goods, but bringing Casey back can redeem him. Though the crime scene seems to tell the whole story, details of the murder aren't adding up. Casey Cox doesn't fit the profile of a killer. But are Dylan's skewed perceptions keeping him from being objective? If she isn't guilty, why did she run?
Unraveling her past and the evidence that condemns her will take more time than he has, but as Dylan's damaged soul intersects with hers, he is faced with two choices. The girl who occupies his every thought is a psychopathic killer . . . or a selfless hero. And the truth could be the most deadly weapon yet.

My Review

I have not read anything but this author but after reading this book I will be putting Ms. Blackstock on my list of authors to check out more books from this author. For anyone who is unsure of Christian Suspense being too preachy, you don't have to worry with this book. Ms. Blackstock shows how Christian Suspense is done right with this book. Plus, the nice thing about these types of books is if you can't handle too much blood or gore there is hardly any with these books. Ok, now to the book itself.

Right from the first moment I instantly connected with Casey and Dylan and the story. So this really helped as it kept my interest. Plus I found this book to be a quick read. The conflict that Dylan felt about Casey helped add to the story. I like that he took everything about the case with a grain of salt and did not just jump to conclusions like the rest of the police. Although with all of the evidence and the crime scene and Casey running away it did make her look guilty. Which she does seem to be hiding something. The town that Casey made her new start in was charming. This story did have a nice ending.
