When skeletal remains possibly connected to deceased serial killer Jacob Ness are discovered near the Georgia Appalachian Trail, a task force is formed. Led by SSA Kimberly Quincy, who was in charge when Ness was killed; lone Ness survivor and vigilante Flora Dane; her boyfriend, computer analyst/true crime enthusiast, Keith Edgar; and Flora’s sponsor, Boston cop D.D. Warren, they hope to resolve unanswered questions. Instead they find a mass grave, which turns the investigation around completely. Is this Ness’s work, did he have a partner, or are they looking for yet another evil monster? No. 11 in best-selling author Gardner’s “D.D. Warren” series (after Never Tell) is a brilliant, one-sitting, terrifying ride, full of übersuspense and hair-raising situations. As this unparalleled plot thickens, the author keeps fans salivating with her superb no-nonsense, visually disturbing bird’s-eye-view storytelling. There are no backseat performances in this all-star, fan-favorite cast, in which every single portrayal is perfect.
VERDICT A must-read for fans of this prolific author, Michael Connelly, and John Sandford. Some pivotal series developments occur, but otherwise this reads well as a stand-alone. [See Prepub Alert, 7/8/19.]
