OrangeReviewStarUnemployed reporter Jane Ryland finds herself in the right place at the right time when, while on a job interview at Channel 2, she is offered an impromptu opportunity to freelance and cover breaking news—a murder in a busy city park. Will eyewitness accounts, cellphones from the crowd, or local surveillance cameras help solve the crime, or are some things not as they appear? As Jane's love interest, Det. Jake Brogan, works to crack the complex case, Jane gets ensnared in a situation closer to home, that of a missing child. In a whirlwind 48 hours, Jane and Jake are entangled in a quagmire of circumstances that quickly escalate and ultimately expose deceit, corruption, and secrets. The more layers that are peeled away, the more surprises that are revealed.
VERDICT Ryan's latest thriller (after Truth Be Told) is built like an intricate house of cards, threatening to crumble at any second. Mystery readers get ready: you will find yourself racing to the finish.
