From the Back Cover
Will her latest cold case unravel before justice is served?
Evie Blackwell's reputation as a top investigator for the Illinois State Police has landed her an appointment to the governor's Missing Persons Task Force. With so much public fanfare surrounding the launch of this elite investigative team, the political stakes are high, and the team will have to produce results--and quickly.
Evie and her new partner, David Marshal, are assigned to a pair of unrelated cases in suburban Chicago, and while both involve persons now missing for several years, the cases couldn't be more different. As Evie opens old wounds in a close-knit neighborhood over the disappearance of a college student, David searches for a private investigator whose last case involved a high-powered client.
With a deep conviction that "justice for all" truly matters, Evie and David are unrelenting in their search for the truth. But the questions that lie just beneath the surface in Evie's personal life are also begging for answers.
"Henderson plays the faith card with subtlety, allowing the detectives to apply their beliefs to both their jobs and personal lives, and displays her usual keen understanding of the human psyche, delving into potential motives for murder as easily as she explores Evie's reluctance to commit. All of these mysteries take unexpected, intriguing turns on their way to a satisfying finale that, nevertheless, leaves enough open doors to make fans eager for yet another installment."--Publishers Weekly
"Henderson's second Evie Blackwell Cold Case novel again explores some intriguing mysteries sure to keep readers engaged and fascinated until the ultimate resolution."--RT Book Reviews
"The new Evie Blackwell Cold Case series promises to delight readers."--Christian Market

Lieutenant Evie Blackwell and a group of other detectives, including David Marshall, are assigned by the governor to revisit cold cases in counties across the state. Evie is trying to discover what happened to a college co-ed, Jenna, who disappeared after a concert. Her partner, David, is tasked with locating a detective who went missing some years previous.
Evie and David find their cases intertwine and spend time working together. As they work, they have spiritual conversations that are realistic and very frank, yet slow the pace of the action. I kept wondering if Henderson could have planted the Biblical ideas little by little, so the story line didn't seem so disjointed.
Needless to say, I had a hard time connecting to the book. Maybe I was expecting more action, which eventually came,but not enough to call this a favorite book, as I had hoped.
Still, there was much good conversation to take to heart. Here are some examples.
"Life reveals truth."
"God appreciates justice even more than we do, so it makes sense that He'd be interested in helping us find it."
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. This did not influence my opinions, for which I am solely responsible.
