An outsider detective. The vigilante killer with a message. A cold case they both want solved.

From Amazon Bestseller S.D. Rowell comes a heart-pounding crime mystery that will keep you thinking until the final page… 

Rachael is a straight-shooting career detective, single-minded in her pursuit of justice, but with no time for the politics of the job. After being bounced between departments over the years, she’s finally found a home in Victoria Police’s cold case unit. Then a vigilante killer starts leaving clues about a long-ago cold case, and Rachael joins a task force investigating the crimes … along with a former colleague, whose dangerous temper has already made an impact on her life.

With more victims appearing and an eye-for-an-eye vigilante killer on the loose, Rachael knows she has to unravel the killer’s secret motive in order to crack the case wide open. Before it’s over, she also comes to understand that morality, truth and the law are not always aligned––and that she must risk everything to solve the case... 

The past is never over. She will make sure of it.
