Police Officer Miles Olsen is driving home one night when an Amish girl runs out into the street.
Ten years ago Rebecca Miller and her friends were kidnapped, and now one by one her friends are being picked off by someone who wants revenge for what they did to send their abductor to jail. Born deaf, the only person she can talk to on the force is Miles, who learned because his grandparents were deaf.
Miles insists in taking her home and checking out her place because what happened didn't seem like a random act, and when her roommate goes missing, and then turns up dead, they know that they have a killer on the loose. Will Miles be able to stop the killer and keep Rebecca safe, before it's too late?
I like that Miles is put in charge of Rebecca's case, he's determined to keep her safe and stop the threats that haunt her. He takes every precaution he can, but he finds himself growing to enjoy her company along with her smile and quick wit.
Rebecca is my favorite character, she is a survivor. When she left the Amish she held onto her faith, while taking advantage of what the English world had to offer, like an education, deaf friends, and a cell phone that helps her communicate with those who don't sign. She wants to be an interpreter to help other deaf people.
I like how Rebecca and Miles are there for each other, and Rebecca helps Miles to cope with his sister's murder, counseling him in faith.
This was an excellent read, fast paced action, mystery, and plenty of suspense, as well as sweet moments. Rebecca is a fantastic heroine, brave in the face of danger. Fantastic read!
