2 stars. 'Blackstock’s latest suffers from an extreme amount of telling due to the first-person point of view. This never allows the reader to fully engage in the action. In addition, there is a far-fetched side storyline involving a missing girl that is just too contrived. Casey is an intriguing character, and further novels in the series may deepen and develop her into someone more believable.' (RT Book Reviews)

This is an emotional book. The writer did a good job of describing the soldier’s life with PTSD. (I really wish our soldiers could get the help they deserve.) His struggle with depression and suicidal thoughts were all too real. Blackstock also weaved in how unexpected deaths affect family members for years to come. I like how she used both lead characters to examine hard questions about God’s intervention on the earth.
This is a clean book—no profanity or intimacy at all.
I really recommend this book. I took one star off for the scam of making readers buy two more books to find out how the story ends.
Casey Cox discovered the body of her friend, Brent, at his house and tried to revive him but it was too late. She knew that "they" had gotten to him because he was trying to help her. Casey found the body of her father, a cop, hanging from a ceiling fan when she was twelve. The Shreveport police declared it a suicide but she knew that it wasn't. It was murder but no one would listen to her. Brent was a journalist and was investigating to help prove that her father was indeed killed. He had called her that day to say that he was discovered some things that he wanted to talk to her about but someone had gotten to him first. Unfortunately, her footprints and DNA are on over the crime scene so she knows that she will be next. She takes some money and a duffel bag and catches a bus out of town. The police are looking for her and know that she has left town and what direction she is heading.
Dylan Roberts and Brent were friends growing up together. Dylan was a criminal investigator while in the military and is now out trying to find a job. He was turned down by the Shreveport Police Department because he has PTSD. After the memorial service, Brent's parents ask Dylan to try to find Casey and bring her back to stand trial for Brent's murder. He would be working along with the police so he agrees to do it to bring Brent's killer to justice. But Casey is a smart girl and evades the police for a long time. As Dylan digs into her life, he finds a different picture of the person that knew Brent from the one that the police has portrayed her to be. What a path this takes us on as Casey, now known as Grace, has to go on to stay out of the grips of the cops. This is one exciting ride! I have already started reading the next book, If I'm Found. Terri Blackstock is a great writer that knows how to write suspense with a message of faith running through it.

Blackstock didn't waste any time getting into the action. She jumped right in by introducing us to Casey who had just discovered the body of her murdered friend. But even from the start, Casey proved herself to be a beautiful character. Despite what happened, she was still compassionate and sweet. She was also very brave and intelligent. I don't know about you, but I don't think I could avoid the cops for that long. And Dylan... My heart broke for him. He went through so much and had to make so many tough decisions. I wanted to wrap him up and give him a huge hug.
The writing was good, I think it fit well with the genre of this book. However, I found that there were a lot of sentences that began with “I.” And at times there were two sentences in a row that started with “I.” Maybe I’m just being picky, but considering the number of books which Blackstock has written, I expected more. As far as the plot, it was engaging and well paced. The only thing I thought could have been better, was the incorporation of the missing girl. It was a brilliant addition, but it felt like just the outlines, it lacked detail. Perhaps with a little more explanation, especially concerning motive on the criminal’s part, things would have come together better.
This was a clean read in terms of profanity and sex; however, there is of course murder and porn is mentioned as well.
Altogether, I highly recommend this book and I will certainly be reading the sequel, “If I’m Found.”
