SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS:
You have good reason to be afraid...
It was a case that haunts Bobby Dodge to this day--the case that nearly killed him and changed his life forever. Now, in an underground chamber on the grounds of an abandoned Massachusetts mental hospital, the gruesome discovery of six mummified corpses resurrects his worst nightmare: the return of a killer he thought dead and buried. There's no place to run. . . . Bobby's only lead is wrapped around a dead woman's neck. Annabelle Granger has been in hiding for as long as she can remember. Her childhood was a blur of new cities and assumed identities. But what--or who--her family was running from, she never knew. Now a body is unearthed from a grave, wearing a necklace bearing Annabelle's name, and the danger is too close to escape. This time, she's not going to run. You know he will find you...
The new threat could be the dead psychopath's copycat, his protégé --or something far more terrifying...
This is the second book in the Detective D.D. Warren series, and it is also the second time that I have read this author.
Detective Bobby Dodge is back! I am still confused as to why this series is not named the "Detective Bobby Dodge" series, since his role is more prominent in both this novel and its predecessor, Alone, which I read back in February.
When six bodies are discovered in an underground chamber, Bobby Dodge's first thought is that the crime is reminiscent of Catherine Gagnon's case which was solved in Alone. Is this the work of the same man who kidnapped Catherine?
I like this book even more than the first in the series! It is getting better!!
I like Bobby Dodge, but it seems like he can't help himself but get involved with each of women in these books!!
Gardner threw in lots of twists and red herrings that kept me guessing right up until the end. Just when I thought that I had everything figured out, there was another twist! I love it when authors do that - keeps me on my toes!
I also like Maggie-Meg Reed's narration of this book.
