Morgan Winter, half-owner of an upscale dating service for busy executives, has been having nightmares of her parents' murder seventeen years ago.
Lane Montgomery is a famous photographer with an interesting sideline; he analyzes crime scene photos using the latest technology. He is unmarried and at the present wants no permanent ties.
Pete Montgomery is a retired NYPD detective, Lane's father, and now a private investigator. He was the lead detective on the Winters murder, and is now back on the case.
Seventeen years ago Jack and Lara Winters were brutally murdered in the basement of a building in Brooklyn. New evidence indicates that the man who confessed to and was convicted of the crime was not the murderer. New technology, evidence, and investigation will help find the real killer and give Morgan Winter closure.
This is a gripping suspense novel that will keep you at the edge of your seat. The author builds the suspense slowly, giving the reader clues bit by bit without giving anything away. Lara's and Jack's jobs and Morgan's foster parents' political connections are all possibilities. I was suspecting everyone before things came together. The characters and dialogue were very well written, and the author has a gift for description. I got hungry from her descriptions of the food, and horrified by the description of the murder scene. The subplots of the Congressman foster father's infidelities and Lane and Morgan's relationship helped pull things together. The ending, for the most part predictable contains a twist that I never expected. This author keeps getting better and better.
