A 2019 Daphne du Maurier Finalist
LT. Jake Carrington has an engagement that can’t wait. Standing over the body of a woman on the railroad tracks who disappeared on July 6th, she's the fifth woman in as many years to go missing on that date. A happy bride-to-be who will never wed, bear children,..

But despite their mutual attraction, Jake’s suspicion deepens when he learns about her gambling problem—an addiction that cost her both husband and son. Even more disturbing is Kyra’s day job. She runs a crematorium—and it’s tied to the Mob.
The victim was bludgeoned, stripped, and left for dead. Shanna Wagner deserves justice—and there’s no better cop than Lieutenant Jake Carrington to find her killer. The brutality of the crime reminds Jake of his sister’s murder. Murder is personal to him.
