Dylan Scott has gotten out of prison for assaulting a suspect. His wife has kicked him out and his mother has moved into a tiny flat with Dylan. As he is trying to figure out what to do about his marriage and money, Holly Champion has contacted him to hunt her mother down who has been missing for 13 years. At first Dylan was wonder if he wanted the case or not. Off he goes to see Holly in Dawson's Clough. He decides he is indeed going to take the case after talking to Holly.
He finds out how small towns talk and word gets around about him and Anita Champion. Anita's friends even clam up. It makes you wonder what everyone has to hide.

I liked all the characters in the book. I really did not have a favorite as they all had something to bring to the story rather it was attitude, secrets, sarcasm everything worked. Holly comes close as she just wants to know the truth about her mom even if it is the worst she needed closure.

The book does well in keeping who done it a secret and what happens. The secrets bring some twists in the book that makes it pop. If you are looking for mystery, thrills, small town secrets etc this is the book for you
