Won this as a FirsReads - got it within 2 days of notification. A great Christmas present.

This is the follow up to another book by Tami Hoag (Deeper than the Grave), but the book can easily stand on it's own. I found it odd at first that the book was set back in the 1980's, but it is kind of fun to read about things that I remember, and there is some great forshadowing of technology to come by the author, particularly in terms of police work.

The story investigates the murder of a young single mother, and it turns out that many things are not as they seem. There is an orphaned 4 year old who witnessed her mother's murder, a young woman struggling with her own status as a victim, several "friends" who may not be what they seem, and an embattled police department trying to do their best with all that is being thrown at them. The book has a good fast pace, plenty of surprising twists, and an ending that fits the story. A great read overall!
