Here are the books I received for review yesterday from Harper Collins:
I couldn’t find a synopsis for this book. It doesn’t officially come out until next July 2017.
Shattered by grief and dreaming of vengeance, Penn Cage sees his family
and his world collapsing around him.
The woman he loves is gone, his
principles have been irrevocably compromised, and his father, once a
paragon of the community that Penn leads as mayor, is about to be tried
for the murder of a former lover.
On a bright and crisp September morning, while walking a bucolic
woodland trail, Rina Decker stumbles upon human remains once buried deep
beneath the forest grounds.
Immediately, she calls her husband, Peter, a
former detective lieutenant with LAPD, now working for the local
Greenbury Police. Within hours, a vista of beauty and tranquility is
transformed into a frenetic crime scene.
