A relaxing trail ride turns tragic when Paramedic and Deputy Coroner Zoe Chambers discovers the body of a popular county commissioner in her Pennsylvania woods. Inconsistencies surround the horrible accident, but before she can investigate further, she’s pried away by a plea for help from her best friend whose son has been deemed a person of interest in a homicide over a thousand miles away. When he vanishes without a trace, his mother begs Zoe to help clear him and bring him safely home. The task takes Zoe out of her comfort zone in a frantic trip to the desolate canyons and bluffs of New Mexico where she joins forces with the missing boy’s sister and a mysterious young Navajo.
Back at home, Vance Township’s Chief of Police Pete Adams must deal not only with the commissioner’s homicide, but with an influx of meth and a subsequent rash of drug overdoses in his rural community. Bodies keep turning up while suspects keep disappearing. However little else matters when he learns that half a continent away, a brutal killer has Zoe in his sights.

I am not sure what I expected when I got this book to read, but I can say it is going on my favorite books list. I loved everything about this book. The characters are phenomenal and the mystery is so intense I couldn't stop reading. If you have not read a book from this author you are missing out on a superb writing style. I was so engrossed in the story I could almost imagine it being a movie.
Zoe is a woman with many talents and has nerves of steel. She is able to keep calm in the most chaotic situations. As she gets ready to hit the trail at the boarding facility she runs, a lone horse shows up. Where is the rider? It seems odd to Zoe and she starts looking for the rider. What she discovers will set into motion a mystery that will span the countryside and into another state. There has been a lot of friction going on in town due to fracking . I found this very interesting and wanted to learn more. The author does a great job of explaining what it is. I also had some inside information from my husband who works in the oil and gas industry. Was someone out to stop any plans dealing with fracking in their town?
The people in town are shocked to learn who the person was that Zoe found. Let's just say the person was well known and had maybe upset a certain group in town. The brilliant writing takes us on a journey that also involves some mysterious deaths of young people. Someone very dear to Zoe turns up missing and she finds herself going to New Mexico to search for him. This is where I found myself on the edge of my seat. The action really takes off and Zoe is kept wondering who to trust .
There is one character that really stood out and I quickly found myself liking him. He is known as 'pony boy" or "Yellowhorse' as some call him. He was someone I would want to have on my side if I was in danger. He is very smart, knows the land well and will protect those with him at all costs. The story is riveting and I loved how the author ties it all together. This is one story that keeps you guessing with an ending you won't see coming.
I received a copy of this book from Great Escapes Book Tour. The review is my honest opinion.
