He won’t rest until he finds out the truth…

Cal Lovett is obsessed with finding justice for the families of missing people. His true crime podcast is his way of helping others, even if he can’t help himself.

His sister, Margot, disappeared when he was a child. Only one man seems to know something. But he’s behind bars and can’t be trusted.

So when the family of a missing Scottish woman begs for his help, he heads to Aberdeenshire in search of the truth.

Does Cal have what it takes to unearth the secrets hiding in the hills? And what if he finds something that leads him back to the heart of his own family’s past?

This book has some of my favorite tropes- missing girls, possible serial killer and a podcast that investigate cold cases. Not to mention that this is the beginning of the series.

The story starts with Cal who wants to know what happened to his sister who disappeared years ago while investigating on another cold case of a missing girl named Layla who mysteriously disappeared in 1986.

The pacing was good, it was fast paced, there were some twists and I like the shift between the past and present so that the reader would have a glimpse of what really happened to Layla. Overall this was a page turner and cannot wait to read the next one in series! Worth five stars.

Many thanks to NetGalley and publishers for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
