In the quiet town of Grand Rapids, Minnesota, a baby vanishes from her bedroom in an opulent lakeside home.

It looks like an abduction, but Lieutenant Jonathan Stride suspects that her father has a great deal to hide.

That same night, a young policewoman stumbles into the middle of a horrific crime in an encounter which will bring a sadistic killer right into the heart of her already complicated life.

Meanwhile, deep in the woods, a small and shallow grave conceals a secret that Stride and his team must unearth before time runs out...

Review by

There's a serial killer in the town, and his latest killing is witnessed by a cop, a cop who has plans to change her life away from police work and away from the cold of Minnesota. Meanwhile, there's an 11-month-old missing baby, chief suspect is the father, an unemotional surgeon who has never shown any real feelings for the child, and who was apparently alone with the child that night.This is part of an ongoing series and I've only read one other in the series but a lot of the story is similar and the characters lacked depth. The story sped through and there were moments where the twists really caught me but overall it wasn't stellar.
