(The sixth book in the Lucy Guardino series)
A novel by


An empty house is covered in blood. Who was the victim?

Lucy Guardino thought she was on holiday, but when a local boy disappears, everything starts going wrong in this edge-of-your-seat crime thriller from CJ Lyons

FBI Agent Lucy Guardino is ready for a well-deserved break from chasing the worst of the worst. She's hunted serial killers, violent child predators, and vicious psychopaths but nothing has prepared her for spring break alone with her teenaged daughter in a secluded beach resort in the Lowcountry of South Carolina.

When Megan stumbles into a crime scene, Lucy tries her best not to get involved. But there's no body, the local police are jumping to conclusions, and Megan will never trust her again if she doesn't find her friend before it's too late.

It's up to Lucy to decide who to trust, figure out who the real perpetrators are and prevent her daughter from playing amateur sleuth. All while trapped on a tiny island with no backup. CJ Lyons and Lucy Guardino return in this adrenaline and suspense fuelled thriller that will keep you hooked until the very last page.
