When Alicia Duncan inadvertently witnesses a body being dumped in the river, her first thought is for her young son. So she and Charlie take off for the woods, and manage to stay ahead of the murderer enough to get into her car and get to the police station.
When the FBI hears about the situation, they send Leo Gallagher and his dog, True, who is trained in water search and rescue. As Alicia recounts what she saw to them, Leo and his team begin to fear that the victim was a witness in another ongoing crime, and that his friend Jake went missing in.
Will they be able to outsmart the killer, before something terrible happens?
I like that Leo insists on following Alicia home, and after a frightening experience on the way, she invites him to stay on the ranch with her, Charlie, and her father. Leo is dedicated, determined and persistent, he knows he can't be everywhere, but he does everything he can to protect Alicia and Charlie. I like how he got to know Charlie, and let him play with True when he was off duty.
Both Leo and Alicia have things in their past that keep them from hoping for a future chance at love, but Alicia's father helps to set them straight. Their close quarters help Alicia and Leo get to know each other, and they talk about their shared faith, and trusting God to direct them.
This was a fast paced read, and I love every book in the series. This book had a quick hook, great interaction, and the intensity grew as the plot progressed. Fantastic read!
