Detective Greg Carver is found shot in the chest in his home. The book opens with his partner Ruth Lake standing in the room with him, but gives no explanation as to why she is there.
And instead of calling for help, she wipes the room clean of prints and rearranges things.
Carver wakes up in the hospital with no memory of being shot. He believes that the Thorn Killer shot him because he was getting too close to finding out his identity. But there is no proof that it was the psychopath who wounded him.
Ruth takes over the Thorn Killer investigation while Carver recuperates. But she also has a lot of secrets that she does not want to be revealed.
This was a good read. Interesting and lots of twists and turns.
