First One Down
Cover in category: 'Fiction' > 'Mystery & Detective'
Do you ever wonder where the line is between dark and light? Do you believe the brightest light can be pulled into the depths of darkness? Do you believe that the blackest soul can find their way into the light? It took Detective Paul Sutton exactly eleven days to know that retirement wasn’t going to work out for him. Only eleven days to realize that he could not put his last case, the only case of his career that he was unable to solve, down. Watching it grow cold and forgotten by everyone except himself and the deceased’s husband, Sutton fought hard against the urge to work it on his own. He thought he could let it go, but he was wrong, dead wrong. Now, back on the job as a Cold Case Detective, Sutton is given another chance to solve the case that has tormented him for two years. Kali Hanson is dealing with a special type of torment as she attempts to navigate a tangled web of deceit where the monsters wear masks of light and the darkness lurking inside a person is impossible to recognize from the outside. How does a girl who has everything going for her find herself in the middle of a deadly puzzle, forced to witness those she loves most commit acts of ultimate betrayal - a puzzle where boundaries blur and the difference between truth and lies is indiscernible? Sutton is in a race against the clock to find a missing girl who may be the key. He will put it all on the line to make sure this monster doesn’t get a chance to kill again. Will he be too late, and is a physical death the only death one can suffer? Even if he saves her, will her life ever be the same?
