Four Best Friends.
And Then One Went Missing . . .
In college, Griffin McCray and his three best friends had their lives planned out. Griffin and Luke Gallagher would join the Baltimore Police Department, Declan Grey would head to the FBI, and Parker Mitchell would study to become a crime scene analyst. But then Luke vanished before graduation and their world--and friendships--crumbled.
Now years later, Griffin has left the police and his friendships behind. Still trying to forget a case that went bad when he was a SWAT team sniper, he's living a quiet life as a park ranger at Gettysburg. Quiet until skeletal remains are uncovered near Little Round Top--and they aren't Civil War-era.
Griffin just wants the case to go away, but charming forensic anthropologist Finley Scott discovers evidence pointing to the work of an expert sniper. When FBI agent Declan Grey steps in to take over the case, past and present collide. Griffin soon realizes he'll need to confront some of the darkest days of his life if he--and those he cares about--are going to escape a downward spiral of crime, danger, and murder.

Oh My gosh what can I say about this book, from the first page it had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I really enjoyed this book just when you think you have the story figured out the author throws in a twist to the story. The author does an amazing job at keeping you hooked on the story till the very end. I can't wait to read more from these friends. The twist and turns in the story truly will keep wanting more and keeps you guessing till the very end. This book is listed as a romance suspense, while there is a ton of suspense in the book there is not a whole lot of romance but the way its played out is very natural and doesn't seemed forced at all, and its the perfect amount. You really can not go wrong with this book its a good clean read with a suspense add to the mix.
4 guys in college decided to go into serving the public then 1 goes missing. Griffin changes job after a failed sniper job went bad. Now park ranger, with remains of the civil war buried to patrol. Till someone wants to dig one up and maybe find something of value. The find, a body, a ring, that are too new, and someone wants this Jane Doe. Finley trying to overcome fears of the night and noises. Griffen trying to overcome his loss and shuts himself off. A gripping story, of why someone is going to such length and continues, wanting the body. Killing all that stands in his way. The characters are well defined and what personal things they are dealing with. A good beginning to a new series, her books are always winner, and doesn't disappoint the readers..
Among the suspense and search for truth there is a wonderful story of reconciliation, forgiveness and healing.
This story involves a group of men who have been friends since childhood. They work well together and still enjoy each others company. Read to see how they solve this mystery and others to follow.
Dani Pettrey writes a good mystery that involves romance and God. I highly recommend this book. Now off to start the next book of this series, Still Life.
I liked the way the main characters developed and let their faith heal them but it w as fast and I don't always find it that way. The hard part of a book like this is that it ends. That would be my recommendation for people. You don't want it to end. It was suspenseful without being scared. I appreciated that.
