by Ace Collins
"A quiet evening ends in murder on a muddy mountain road. Local attorney Lije Evans and his beautiful wife, Kaitlyn, are gunned down. But the killers don’t expect one of their victims to live. After burying Kaitlyn, Lije is on a mission to find her killer—and solve a mystery that has more twists and turns than an Ozark-mountain back road. When the trail of evidence goes cold, complicated by the disappearance of the deputy who found Kaitlyn’s body at the scene of the crime, Lije is driven to find out why he and his wife were hunted down and left for dead along Farraday Road. He begins his dangerous investigation with no clues and little help from the police. As he struggles to uncover evidence, will he learn the truth before the killers strike again?"
Once I started reading this book I was not able to put it down- literally. I stayed up late reading it. Ace Collins has a special talent to pull the reader in to be part of the story. I felt like I was on the "team" investigating the murder. I did think there were a lot of people to keep track of and it was a little confusing because the author would refer to them by their last name sometimes and their first times at other times.
There were a couple of places I was confused, but I wonder if that was because I was sent an advance reader copy- where it is unedited. I am sure that these few places were edited and corrected.
This is the first book in the two book series, so this book does not contain the ending- but I did read book two ,Swope's Ridge. I had both the books so I could go right from one book to the next as I would suggest to you.
