Summary: (Goodreads)
Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages
On a bitterly cold January evening, Tracy Ellis went for a jog along Chicago’s snowy lakefront and disappeared. Her body was discovered days later, her beautiful face bashed in with a rock. Police determine her brutal death to be a mugging gone wrong and drop the matter into their cold case files.
Over a year later, Tracy’s sister, Sondra, still can’t come to grips with what happened. She throws herself into her work as a documentary filmmaker to try and forget the cruelty of her sister’s death. However, a chance encounter with a man from Tracy’s past rips the wound open and sends Sondra on a desperate search for answers about the secrets from her sister’s life that may have led to her death.
As Sondra struggles to uncover what happened to Tracy, she’s launched into a tangled web of deceit and danger that put her on a collision course with life and death…

My Review:
Goodness what a ride this book brings you on! The whole book you are wondering what happened to Tracy. Every page is full of suspense, and thrills! I read over 80% of this book in one day and loved it.
I enjoyed the details the author threw in, adding to the characters, which came off with realism. I will definitely be recommending this book!
Each chapter was told in another light of a character, giving the book and story it’s mold, and shape. The plot was rounded enough that I was on my toes, or fingertips, either way. Do not stop this read, even if you think that you might have it figured out, there is always a turn, and your guessing could be wrong.
