Detective Katie Scott, now head if the Cold Case Unit in her hometown proves that it is possible to battle trauma and ( with the help of family, friends and an awesome retired military K9, to begin to heal. However, as in many if the cold cases Katie handles, sometimes early trauma takes its victim in an entirely different direction. The young foster children assigned to Elm Hill are abused and damaged again during by heir stay in foster care. Now, after the closing of the facility and the opening if a missing person cold case, they are turning up as dead bodies. Can Katie and her partner find the killer and stop the deaths?
Katie Scott is a dedicated detective who works with Sean McGaven, an equally dedicated police officer, and together they make a formidable team. They are also good friends, which helps (and also hinders, when they get into trouble) but I really like the dynamic between them. I also loved the relationship Katie has with Cisco, her dog. I found the references to her previous career in the Army and the issues she has with PTSD quite interesting to read about.
The case of the girls from Elm Hill Manor is a concerning one and I found myself wondering how it was all going to go. Most of the storyline concerning this case was good, but the revelation of who the murderer was, felt a bit rushed. A bit of time was spent mentioning what kind of background the killer came from, but probably not quite enough detail. The relationship between Chad and Katie wasn't as deep either as it probably should have been - I felt more emotionally attached to her dog than to the story of their relationship. Katie's uncle was barely mentioned. The Elm Hill girls stories also could have had a bit more depth to them, especially Candace's. That was downright odd, in parts.
All in all, this story just felt a bit rushed/unfinished....not sure what really? I wish I could have liked it a little more, but I need to give it a 3.5, rounded down to 3.
Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture.

Detective Katie Scott works cold cases with partner Deputy Sean McGaven and they are looking for a missing girl who ran off one night, from Elm Hill, never to be seen again. The following day another girl is found who is also linked to the children's home and Katie finds herself working a double murder while still grieving a close personal loss just a few months earlier.
Stressed to the max, with her PTSD trying to control her once again, and a new undersheriff watching her every move, Katie has to work fast to prevent more deaths whilst giving no one any excuses to relieve her of duty. Then another girl disappears.
This was an excellent read which I thoroughly enjoyed. I had no idea who was responsible for the deaths and found the whole storyline enthralling from the start. Katie is a great main protagonist and is ably supported by both colleagues and family in this great series. For the most part though they took more of a back seat this time with the secondary focus being on her relationships with partner McGaven and boyfriend, Chad.
I was able to read an advanced copy of this book thanks to NetGalley and the publishers in exchange for an unbiased review and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys this author's work or likes well written crime novels. I hope there is more to come from Katie in the near future.
Detective Katie Scott does it again! Crime! Murder! Danger! Anticipation! Very intense! Awaiting the next Detective Scott instalment
