I love a good story about a female cop that knows how to get the job done when it comes to solving a murder case. This book was one of those books. I really enjoyed the main character Nell Flynn. She had a crazy past but I didn’t feel like that author allowed that to get in the way of the main story about solve two murders of locals girls that were connected. This is the first book I’ve read by Cristina Alger but definitely not the last. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2. Thank you to Net Galley, Penguin Group and Putnam’s Sons Books for the ARC. This book will be published July 2nd so add it to your tbr list.
FBI Agent Nell Flynn hasn’t been home in ten years. Nell and her father, Homicide Detective Martin Flynn, have never had much of a relationship. And Suffolk County will always be awash in memories of her mother, Marisol, who was brutally murdered when Nell was just seven. When Martin Flynn dies in a motorcycle accident, Nell returns to the house she grew up in so that she can spread her father’s ashes and close his estate. At the behest of her father’s partner, Detective Lee Davis, Nell becomes involved in an investigation into the murders of two young women in Suffolk County. The further Nell digs, the more likely it seems to her that her father should be the prime suspect–and that his friends on the police force are covering his tracks. Plagued by doubts about her mother’s murder–and her own role in exonerating her father in that case–Nell can’t help but ask questions about who killed Ria Ruiz and Adriana Marques and why. But she may not like the answers she finds–not just about those she loves, but about herself.
