A lot has happened since the last Jessica Daniels book, the detective’s life has fallen apart and she’s stopped working, locking herself in her home, refusing contact with anyone.. She reluctantly agrees to help DCI Jack Cole and a nearby police department look into the disappearances and deaths of people who have connections to a strange group that takes people who have given up on life into their fold. People just like Jessica. She’s the perfect choice for an undercover agent to infiltrate the group. Can Jessica solve this case and find a way back to the life she used to lead? More character driven and darker than the other books in this series, I think it’s the best one so far.
