“A great suspense novel with people you care about.”—Lee Child
A body is discovered in a reservoir north of New York City. The victim is young, female and Hispanic. In her purse, police find a photo of a baby. Where is the child? Is she alive? And what about the disturbing note found at the scene? “Go back to your country. You don’t belong here.”
Homicide detective Jimmy Vega knows how hard it can be to walk the razor-thin line of acceptance in a place like Lake Holly. Reluctantly turning to Adele Figueroa, a passionate defender of immigrants’ rights, Vega must confront a small town’s darkest secrets and deepest obsessions—before they savagely tear apart the world he’s sworn to defend.

Book one in Suzanne Chazin's new series!

The investigation turns in many directions involving characters struggling with their own conflicting circumstances, one being Jimmy himself. Having spent is teenage years on Lake Holly Jimmy must now place his loyalties to his job above all else. Gripping and intense, a read that won't allow itself to be put down even after it is complete!
