    • Abstract:
      Summary: "FBI Special Agent Kimberly Quincy and Sergeant Detective D D Warren have built a task force to follow the digital bread crumbs left behind by deceased serial kidnapper Jacob Ness. When a disturbing piece of evidence is discovered in the hills of Georgia, they bring Flora Dane and true-crime savant Keith Edgar to a small town where something seems to be deeply wrong. What at first looks like a Gothic eeriness soon hardens into something much more sinister... and they discover that for all the evil Jacob committed while alive, his worst secret is still to be revealed. Quincy and DD must summon their considerable skills and experience to crack the most disturbing case of their careers -- and Flora must face her own past directly in the hope of saving others." -- Provided by publisher.

*Starred Review* A human bone found in the remote Georgia mountains draws to the scene Boston homicide detective D. D. Warren and civilians Flora Dane and Keith Edgar. Flora, a captive of serial killer Jacob Ness, was kept as his sex slave for 427 days before she killed him, and Keith is a computer nerd who has become an authority on Ness; with Warren and supervising FBI agent Kimberly Quincy, they hope to find evidence of Ness' crimes in Georgia. In fact, the mountain area soon yields evidence of a serial killer's dumping grounds, and the nearby small town is found to be hiding dreadful secrets involving human trafficking and trading in black-market organs. Looming over it all is the Bad Man, who years earlier killed the mother of a young girl, now a mute servant known simply as the Girl, whose first-person accounts weave through the narrative, as she works her way into D. D.'s heart. A frightening climax provides an appropriate wrap-up to the Ness saga and the story of evil flourishing in a small mountain town. This is top-notch suspense by a best-selling master of the genre. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

Gardner here reunites several fan favorites, with FBI Special Agent Kimberly Quincy and Sgt. Det. D.D. Warren bringing in Flora Dane as they follow the trail of recently deceased serial kidnapper Jacob Ness to the Georgia hills, trying to sort out his cases. There's something positively creepy about the little town where they've landed, and soon they realize that Jacob has left behind secrets darker than anything he did while alive.

At the start of this gritty, character-driven standalone from bestseller Gardner (Never Tell), a hiker stumbles across a human femur in the mountains of Niche, Ga. As soon as the remains are identified as those of 17-year-old Lilah Abenito, kidnapped 15 years before and long suspected to have been one of the earliest victims of now-deceased serial predator Jacob Ness, a special task force forms in hope of solving other cold cases linked to him. Led by FBI agent Kimberly Quincy (a regular in a Gardner series), the team includes someone with intimate Ness intel—survivor Flora Dane, as well as her Boston PD friend, Sgt. D.D. Warren (the lead in another Gardner series). Meanwhile, in Niche, the unanticipated heat from the investigation seems to be sparking sloppy mistakes—as well as offering a glimmer of hope to a mute teenage maid known only as Girl, who has crucial information. Though the conspiracy-powered plot eventually balloons well beyond believability and a romantic detour involving Flora distracts, Gardner melds her distinctive protagonists' stories into an emotionally powerful page-turner. Fans of kick-ass female investigators will be well satisfied. Author tour. Agent: Meg Ruley, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (Jan.)
