Luke is eager to help Abby close the books on a case they both have personal stakes in. But as she uncovers long-held secrets, Abby stumbles into an explosive situation, and Luke fears that her obsession may prove deadly.
This is the third book in the Cold Case series, and I have been looking forward to it for quite a while. So I was a little disappointed when the book started really slow for me. I felt there was a lot of filler content in the first part of the book and I wanted the story to move along. However, once the book hit a stride and the action picked up, it was impossible to put it down.
Abby and Luke are back working a case together, and both have finally admitted to themselves how they feel about the other one. However, neither has yet to mention their feelings to the other one. This seems to cause a bit of tension between them as they try to work together and keep their feelings in check.
Abby is still hung up on finding the truth about what happened to her parents and the person behind their deaths. She is so sure she has a viable lead and she convinces Luke and Woody to go along with her on her hunt for her suspect.
Of course, they find themselves in quite a bit of danger as their work progresses and it is the suspense of how they will come out of their predicament alive that really makes this book worth the read. The heart-stopping action, paired with the love growing between Abby and Luke, makes this book such a good read in the end. I am glad I stuck with it and am very happy with how this series ended up.
