I will not recap the plot since many others have already done that and in a considerably better manner than I would accomplish. Suffice to say that Kelli Owen has penned a gripping and emotional read about a young man dealing with his wife’s murder. Matt’s grieving is believably portrayed and you feel every ounce of his despair. As he discovers secrets about his wife, you agonize right along with him.
There are a couple of plot lines which stretched my ability to suspend disbelief. The biggest involves incompetent police work that the author did not intend to portray as such (and unfortunately is very important to the plot), and some occasional over-the-top behavior of the main character. Otherwise, this is a short, dark read that will hold your attention.
