She's following her instincts. They're following her every move. 

After her rescue of nearly fifty kidnapped children made international headlines, Amara Alvarez gets what she's worked for: a transfer to San Antonio's Homicide Division. But reality sets in quickly when her first case, the suspicious death of a teenager at a crowded local water park, plunges her life into chaos. 

As the investigation moves forward, Amara finds herself stalked online by cybercriminals who uncover her personal life in frightening detail. With few leads, she's forced to resort to unconventional methods to find the killer and prevent her first murder investigation from ending up in the cold case files. 

Tom Threadgill is back with another riveting page-turner featuring the detective who is willing to put everything on the line to see justice served and lives protected.



Human nature is your best friend and your worst enemy.”


Detective Amara Alvarez lands her first case after being granted a transfer to the San Antonio Police Department.  Unfortunately, while trying to solve this first case, her personal life is impacted in more ways than she could imagine.

This was my first read by the author and it opened strong. I was engaged from the onset. The story – I believe- picks up shortly after Collision of Lies ends.

While I would not mind going back to read book one to get a little backstory on Amara, Starsky, and a few other characters, this book stands on its own. The author does a good job of providing the reader with enough tidbits from book one so that you are not lost.

I think the story moved well and created a good amount of tension as Amara attempts to solve this case while battling personal things on the home front. Unforeseen forces are wreaking havoc on her personal life, but she does not allow it to deter her from pushing forward to get her man, woman or…well you’ll have to read it to find out.

Rage-quit -angrily abandon an activity or pursuit that has become frustrating

I think the author delivered a solid plot with interesting and relatable characters. I think that Threadgill did a convincing job of capturing the strength of a woman in her position as well as her vulnerability. I enjoyed the drama. I enjoyed the humor. I liked that the author did not rely on unnecessary gratuitous sex.  I loved the buildup of “whodunnit?” I loved that unconventional methods were employed to aid in solving the crime. I think that was my favorite part. I won’t spoil it, but it was genius.

There’s nothing worse than losing your anonymity… Being alone was far worse.

I would recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys criminal thrillers with a couple of twists and some humor.

  1. Great review, and it's always good to know when a book stands alone in a series so we can jump in here. Thanks for sharing!
