A twisting fast paced suspense, with personal implications and revelations for both Terra and Jack as they work to get to the bottom of things.
Terra is a Forest Service Special Agent, dealing with the protection of artifacts and protected property, which is a specialization that I'd never heard of before and thought was really fascinating. Jack is a former FBI agent working with the sheriff's department, since coming home to be with his ailing aunt. He is struggling to get back on track after failing to save his cousin, but he wants to help Terra get to the bottom of the murder. And I liked how he was there for her throughout the story, supportively helping her navigate the dangers of dealing with traffickers.
Terra is a strong woman, passionate about following in the footsteps of her mother. I liked that she is close to her brother, Owen, and is strong in her faith.
The story is fast paced with plenty of twists, as well as relationship building along the way. I liked how the plot has ties to the past, and the personal, with high stakes and a wonderful cast of characters. A fantastic suspenseful read with great character development, and plot that made it hard to put down as there was so much going on! Excellently balanced read, definitely recommend to suspense fans!
