Forensic artist Gwen Marcey has become the target of a serial killer who believes he's been appointed God's executioner.
In Copper Creek, Montana, Gwen Marcey is struggling to put together her life after cancer and divorce. When her dog retrieves a skull of a murder victim and leads her to the victim's grave, Gwen uses her forensic art ability to identify a serial killer. She is horrified to discover all the victims look like her fourteen-year-old daughter.
The murderer is a "lone wolf," a member of the terrorist group Phineas Priesthood-and he has a score to settle with Gwen. Unraveling the tangled Christian Identity movement, where race-not grace-provides salvation, Gwen is in a frantic rush against time. She must use all her skills to uncover the killer before he can carry out his threat to destroy her and everyone she loves.
I completely enjoyed this book. Gwen's dog brings up a skull and that leads to a race against time. She realizes that the victim looks a lot like her daughter and that there is a link to a past case. Everything starts making a terrifying kind of sense and Gwen realizes it isn't just her in danger.
Wow. I am going to try not to give away any spoilers at all because this is a book you will really get into. There is plenty of suspense. As a mother, this book had an added element for me. I really liked Gwen and how she uses her abilities to 'get the bad guy'. This book was fast paced and didn't slow down from beginning to end!
This is going on my keeper shelf with a 5/5 rating!
