Sergeant Ryan DeMarco is on a road trip in an RV with his girlfriend, Jayme. He is still dealing with the death of his best friend months ago and is hoping to relax and enjoy his time alone with his girlfriend. While DeMarco and Jayme are in in Jayme’s hometown it becomes common knowledge that DeMarco is known for solving violent crimes. He is soon wrapped up in the cold case mystery of the bones of 7 young girls who have been discovered years earlier.

Both DeMarco and Jayme want to solve the murders of the young women. The bones have been carefully preserved and they both hope to find clues that will lead them to the killer. This is a cold case but one that they can’t leave behind. For me, this seemed to take years. I had very high hopes for this book but it just felt like it dragged and dragged and dragged. Ryan and Jayme had relationship issues that consumed many of the pages. When they weren’t having sex or running, they were dealing with jealousy over past lovers, being open emotionally, etc.

I should point out that this is the second book in the Ryan DeMarco Mystery series. The first book in the series is “Two Days Gone” which I read and also gave 3 stars. Perhaps I was being impatient, but the investigation took forever. I had high hopes for this book and although it was enjoyable, I found it to be a little slow and I grew impatient. This book is well written but slow. It is still a good read and mystery.

I received a copy of this book from Sourcebooks landmark and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
