The plot twists and turns and you never know where it is going until near the end. I was looking for a butler at one point because I couldn’t figure it out; so the butler had to be the bad guy.
A thoroughly enjoyable read! I too, look forward to more from PL Hayes.
Based in the fictional mountain town of Silver Springs, the story starts with the burned body of a woman found in a resort that was being built. She has connections with an eco-terrorist group and the authorities are quick to assume she and the group was responsible for the arson, and it was just bad happenstance that she was killed in the fire.
But her father is sure his little girl wouldn't do any such thing and enlists the aid of his friend, and the story's protagonist, Cameron Jaclyn to look into it and prove her innocence.
Cameron, with the aid of his friends - and a lovely private investigator, - start looking into the arson and death and by doing so quickly learn that the town's residents have deep dark secrets that they don't want to be uncovered. There is the resort's developer who has a financial interest in seeing the resort being finished in time, yet is hampered by the tree-hugging group sabotaging progress; the financial backer who just took out a hefty insurance policy on the project in case things went south; the sheriff who seems folksy and popular with the locals, yet doesn't seem to interested in pursuing the truth; an old mine with a dubious EPA report making it look safer than it may actually be. How are all of these related? Or are they?
The story is well paced and the author does a great job of developing the characters and motives, and keeps the reader guessing to the very end. Things are never what they seem, and Cameron and his team work their way through deceit, false leads, ominous threats, coverup and being locked up in jail, and eventually get to the truth of what happened.
A good read and looking forward to the next one.
