Overview

Now a USA TODAY bestseller

Casey knows the truth. But it won't set her free.

Casey Cox's DNA is all over the crime scene. There's no use talking to police; they've failed her abysmally before. She has to flee before she's arrested . . . or worse. The truth doesn't matter anymore.

But what is the truth? That's the question haunting Dylan Roberts, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. PTSD has marked him damaged goods, but bringing Casey back can redeem him. Though the crime scene seems to tell the whole story, details of the murder aren't adding up.

Casey Cox doesn't fit the profile of a killer. But are Dylan's skewed perceptions keeping him from being objective? If she isn't guilty, why did she run?

Unraveling her past and the evidence that condemns her will take more time than he has, but as Dylan's damaged soul intersects with hers, he is faced with two choices: the girl who occupies his every thought is a psychopathic killer . . . or a selfless hero. And the truth could be the most deadly weapon yet.

After finding best friend Brent Pace stabbed to death in her apartment, Casey Cox knows she will be the prime suspect and needs to make a decision quickly. Armed with thousands in cash that her father gave her for emergencies, she hops on a bus out of Shreveport, La., and becomes Grace Newland after purchasing the identity illegally. Back in Shreveport, war-weary vet Dylan Roberts attends Brent's funeral and is hired by a family friend in the police department to bring Casey home for questioning. As Dylan tries to determine Casey's motive for murdering her friend, "Grace" is trying to establish a new life in Shady Grove, Ga., thanks to Miss Lucy, an elderly woman she met on the bus. Sleuthing online from afar, Casey uncovers evidence that Brent had information pertaining to her father's murder. Unsure who to trust as evidence begins to point to corrupt detectives, Casey digs into her family past to figure out what really happened to her father a decade before. Dylan, just a few steps behind Casey, is skeptical of her involvement in Brent's death. Will her questioning end up costing Casey her life, or will Dylan track her down in time to save them both? Blackstock (Intervention) is masterly in navigating the suspenseful fugitive plot, using the alternation of Casey's and Dylan's chapters to ratchet up the tension. Crisp dialogue and unexpected twists make this compulsive reading, and a final chapter cliffhanger leaves things poised for a sequel. (Dec.)
