From the Back Cover
Lurking beneath the sand dunes is an evil that no one suspected.
A sandy grave not connected to the storm leads investigators to uncover the burial grounds used by a serial killer, literally beneath their feet, hidden for years from the residents of the tight community.
For Katia, it's personal because she knows one of the killer's victims. She enlists help from K-9 search expert Paige, and Katia's on-and-off lover, Zahra, in her determination to find the killer, dubbed Sandman, and stop him from killing again.
What small-town secrets will they unearth in their pursuit of the truth? Will the three women survive the physical, emotional, and psychological attack being waged against their small slice of sand? Or will they become the next victims of Sandman? --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Katia is a member of the EMS of Buxton, NC. Most of her friends work in law enforcement and/or medicine. Together, they all tackle a series of grisly murders on their section of the dunes of the Outer Banks of NC. The serial killer has been working at these murders for many years and is escalating. Katia and her on-again off-again lover Zahra, along with K9 trainer Paige, sift through evidence of the murders of many people they know, while Katia tries to take care for the safety and well-being of her autistic brother, Marco.
This book tells you, about 3/4 of the way through, who the serial killer is, but the rest of the book explains the why of the killing and the how. Still, it's hard to guess who it is. This book wrapped itself around me and didn't let go until the last sentence. What a well-written mystery!
When a hurricane hits a small town in North Carolina, the gruesome remains of murder victims are revealed in the dunes. As the investigation begins, we meet three close friends, Katia, Zahra, and Paige who are all part of the discovery process one way or another as first responders. There’s a lot of tense moments through the book but the ending had me clenching my teeth. That’s how much the author makes us care about the mains because otherwise what would it matter. Katia and Zahra have history and good chemistry but in no way is this a romance.
Yes, I recommend the book, 4.5 stars, for the sheer force of will that it must have taken to face the worst and then to write about it in such an unflinching way. Half a star off for some spots where I got lost in the narrative, not sure if it was the built-in complexity or some disconnect in the transitions. If you do decide to read, be aware of what you’re signing up for, a remarkable telling but gut wrenching.
It is the first book I've read by this author, but I'll be reading more in the future. Her work kept me interested and made me want to read faster to find out who the killer was, while at the same time I didn't want the story to end. I wanted there to be many more books about this small community, Katia, Matty, Zahra, Paige and their co-workers and neighbors.
