A killer rises…

Determined to start over, Lucy Kendall moves to Washington, D.C., and takes a position with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

But the past doesn’t want to let her go.

When a police officer walks into her office and tells her the unthinkable, she knows she has to go back. But it’s too late. The gauntlet has been dropped, and Lucy has no choice but to play a sadistic killer’s game.

Unable to trust anyone, Lucy scrambles to find the truth. But time runs out, and she must do the one thing she swore she’d never do: tell the truth about the people she’s killed.

Will Lucy’s ultimate sacrifice be enough?

I was so nervous going into this story and rightly so. We all know by now who Lucy is and what she’s done. The question is which fork in the road will she take…the dark side or towards the light.

 

I’m not going to recap the story or share any part of it. This is a gem you need to discover all on your own without any hints about the storyline. The writing is brilliant (as usual), the characterizations well developed and the tensions in the stratosphere.

 

I’ve loved this unconventional series and have had a love/hate relationship with Lucy Kendall. My feelings about her settled with this story and I still am reeling from all the twists, surprises and disclosures. Well done…really well done.

    The series takes a step back with a look at Lucy Kendall right after she made the decision to leave the Child Protective Services (CPS) agency. She’s contacted by one of her former cases who’s at risk friend is missing under strange circumstances.   I was so certain this story would help me unravel more of Lucy, helping me decide definitively if she’s a true psychopath or just terribly misguided. While I gained a bit more insight, I’m even more conflicted about her!   The case is complex and also takes us inside the CPS, portraying its strengths along with what we know of its weaknesses. I was immediately captivated and couldn’t put it down until I finished the story. The ending was […]

    Lucy Kendall is reeling from the events that led to the deaths of two people, neither she deliberately planned to kill. As her reflections have her spiralling deep into a depression, Chris Hale, her friend and confidant, is losing patience as he’s anxious for them to locate his diabolical mother and deliver their unique brand of justice. When she receives a terrifying message from him, Lucy reaches the frightening conclusion that he’s missing and possibly in his mother’s clutches.   Lucy’s introspection throughout this story was just as fascinating as the search for Chris after he goes missing. The parallels between her life, Chris’ and Mary Weston were surprising at times as she examined the ongoing debate about nature versus nurture. As Chris […]

    Lucy Kendall is a vigilante killer who seems to be on a one-woman mission to identify and neutralize child sex traffickers. When she stumbles across a website selling children, Lucy starts off in a new direction focusing on a ring that appears to be right in her city.   I’m still struggling with my mixed feelings about Lucy and what she’s doing. Is she any better than the scum she’s targeting? Just because she’s got the moral authority doesn’t make what she’s doing acceptable. But then, I still root for her to remain undetected, to not be locked up or killed. In this story, I learned a bit more about what drives her and loved how she’s struggling with her own view of […]

  I knew I was in for a reading ride after the first sentence. I’m not a killer. Lucy Kendall is a former Child Protective Services (CPS) social worker who’s now a private investigator. Disillusioned by the abysmal record for protecting children from abusers, she decides to mete out her own system of justice. It gets complicated when a stranger steps into her private world offering help and a child is abducted in the midst of a suspected abuser she’s been tracking. Be prepared to feel uncomfortable and off balance for this entire story. Lucy is pretty complicated with dark edges and a convoluted belief system when it comes to right and wrong. Her world is turned upside down when some of her truisms begin […]
