Summary

Three college freshmen go missing from their rural hometown of Kelly's Falls while on Christmas break. Their cell phones, coats, and purses are left behind, but the girls have disappeared without a trace. As the days turn into weeks and the investigation grows cold, 23-year-old Buffalo police officer Shea O'Connor is called on to dig up leads undercover. 

Still bearing the emotional and physical scars of a previous case, O'Connor infiltrates as 18-year-old Shea Anderson, a college freshman and the niece of the town's police chief. As she begins to immerse herself in the missing girls' world, befriending their friends and family, and doing whatever it takes to maintain her cover, O'Connor realizes the track is far colder than she initially thought. But whoever was behind the girls' disappearance was only warming up, and they have set their crosshairs directly on her. 

The heat is on for O'Connor as she closes in on the shocking truth about what really happened the night the girls vanished.

It keeps you guessing

Another very good story from Lissa Marie Redmond.
You never know which direction the story is going to go but I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to hearing another one from her.

Boring

Nothing exciting or engrossing about book. The focus seems to be at the maturity level of the police woman and not about the crime.

Secrets and truths

When three young women disappear under mysterious circumstances, a young police officer is seconded by the FBI to go undercover as a college student ingratiating herself with the missing girls' friends. The main character is artfully drawn, a mixture of seen-it-all, naivete, self-confidence and a dash of intolerance that only a young adult can possess yet she is such a likeable and brave character, I quickly became invested in the story. Very satisfying ending. Excellent narration.
