Synopsis:


What’s done in the dark will be brought to the light… 

The silhouette stood at the edge of the woods like a spider watching a fly enter its carefully crafted web. Only a few more steps and she’d be within its grasp. 

Stacy Shaw has her whole life ahead of her. New job, new house and now a baby on the way—everything she’s ever hoped for is finally coming true. But on a warm summer night on the way home from work, she vanishes. The police race to find her, but the clues don’t add up. Conflicting facts emerge as her story twists and turns, sending the trail spiraling in all directions. 

A hometown hero with a heart of gold, Jack Stratton was raised in a whorehouse by his prostitute mother. Jack seemed destined to become another statistic, but now his life has taken a turn for the better. Determined to escape his past, he's headed for a career in law enforcement. When his foster mother asks him to look into the girl’s disappearance, Jack quickly gets drawn into a baffling mystery. As Jack digs deeper, everyone becomes a suspect—including himself. Caught between the criminals and the cops, can Jack discover the truth in time to save the girl? Or will he become the next victim? 


Review:

This was the first book in the series I read, so I felt a little at a disadvantage, as other readers will read this one and get to know the background of a character they already love, where as I got to know him differently. I imagine it is a bit different though for those readers, as it is so focused on teenagers, that it read more like a YA novel for the first half, then picked up speed and turned into an adult mystery. The first half was ok, but admittedly, the second part held more interest for me, as the actual mystery at hand played out and came to an end. But ultimately, I think if you're a fan of this series, you'll love the book, but otherwise, you might want to start with a different book in the series.
